The Prosperity and Welfare of one nation depend neither solely on its natural resources nor military forces, instead, they depend on the noble character of its leader or future generation. Designing the future of an advance nation has the meaning of building the education. This thought was the foundation in establishing Nanyang Zhi Hui in Medan.
Nanyang School started its teaching and learning activities in 2003/2004 school year, with 27 students in Primary 1 and 2, located on Jl. Abdullah Lubis No. 10 A Medan.
Due to its development and the increasing number of students, in 2006, Nanyang School moved to the four-floor permanent building located on Jl. Abdullah Lubis No. 15 (across from the old school building) and by the school year of 2006/2007, Nanyang started the Kindergarten level; in 2008/2009 Junior High level was operated; then started the Nursery level by the school year of 2011/2012 and; by the school year of 2013/2014, Senior High level was initiated.
Presently, The National Accreditation Board of North Sumatra Province has granted "A" accreditation for Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary levels.
