Northfields is one of two International high schools in Mauritius. It is however the only one situated in the North of the island. The school was founded in 2002 by a small group of parents and the Head of the International Preparatory School. The goal of Northfields International High School is to develop the whole child. Northfields aims to provide the best all-round education integrating spiritual, social, moral, sporting and cultural aspects of the self as well as intellectual growth. The school recognizes the need for a child to have their intelligence, physical, interpersonal and emotional psyche stimulated. It has a well-qualified and dedicated staff and Head of school, who strive to identify and develop each child's strengths. Each pupil is thus both challenged and supported to achieve the skills required for their future chosen field of study.
