NLJ High School was originally established by the Red Cross and changed hands administratively a couple of times between 1976 and 2004. Up to this year, many students from this school have taken their Secondary School Certificate (SSC) or High School exams from the Dhaka education board and were later successfully admitted into colleges. Surovi-Plan, a non-governmental organization ran the school from the year, 2005. The classes offered at that time were Pre-K to Grade 5. In 2008, OBAT Helpers stepped forward and increased the grade level to grade 8 and started funding grade 6 to 8 from henceforth. Kindergarten to grade 5 is still financed by Surovi.
The school has five class rooms and one room for teachers. Students study in the 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm shift.
Sixty-one students in the 11-15 years age group study here. The staff comprises of seven qualified teachers, all of whom have undergraduate degrees. The school has always had eminent educationists as principals. Twelve subjects are taught here, from Science to Sociology. Other than that, extra-curricular activities such as sports and writing competitions are also offered by the school.
