National Gems School was founded in 1968 with an objective to spread the light of knowledge and information to all segments of the society.
The Shaw Education Foundation was formed in 1993 and the journey of National Gems Higher Secondary School saw the breaking of a new dawn. It shifted to a new campus which now houses the Junior School that caters to the Pre-Primary (Lower Nursery to Kindergarten) and Primary (Class I to IV) sections. A phenomenal growth followed the affiliation of the school to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, New Delhi, in 1995. This necessitated a bigger space to meet the growing demand. Hence, classes V to XII were relocated to a new campus with the infrastructure and facility required to make learning effective, meaningful and result oriented. Since then National Gems has been growing in its popularity and reputation in imparting quality education that is proved every year in its excellent results in both ICSE and ISC Examinations (Science and Commerce) along with strong discipline and values in every student. The School Management thus nurtures the vision of a holistic development to ensure that no individual is left behind in this highly competitive world with a fast changing global scenario.
