At the beginning of the 21st century the accelerated socio-economic development of Kazakhstan caused an urgent need of professionals with a high level of technical, management and leadership competencies, so in 2008 at the initiative of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, a project on creation of Intellectual schools was started. Therefore, on September 1, 2009 “Nazarbayev Intellectual School of Physics and Mathematics” opened its doors in Kokshetau, rich in industrial production and agriculture.

The school has 807 students and 72 classrooms. There are classrooms for mathematics, robotics, physics, chemistry, biology, small and large gym, a football court and 2 libraries on the territory of the school.

The school has two libraries in order to ensure students’ successful integration into the world educational space and access to information in Kazakh, Russian, English languages. The school is implementing an educational program “NIS-Programme”, developed jointly with a strategic partner – the University of Cambridge. The content of academic disciplines is based on the integration of Kazakh and international programs, taking into account the profile of subjects of natural and mathematical direction.

In June 2017, the school was accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS). As a member of the CIS, the school confirmed compliance with international standards for the organization of school life and the educational process. Students also cooperate successfully with other international schools in the form of online conferences and discussions.
