New Indian Model School, Sharjah (popularly known as NIMS-Sharjah) was inaugurated by Kerala State Education Minister Shri. Chandra Sekhar in 1982 (in a villa at Maisaloon) and had a meagre strength of about 30 students. With the increase in strength, it expanded to four villas in Maisaloon, and continued in the same premises until 1996. In September of the same year the school was shifted to spacious building at Qassimia, Sharjah. In 2001, the boys’ section of the school was shifted to its newly constructed building in Al Azra ( Sharjah ) and in 2003 the girls’ section was also shifted to Al Azra ; which presently has two separate buildings and facilities for boys and girls and with nearly 3000 students on rolls.
