The High School in Obrenovac is one of the oldest educational institutions in Serbia. In our days it has become an elite high school, with four majors (general, natural sciences and mathematics, socio-linguistic and IT) and thus it provides its students with a quality preparation for further education. The classroom opening ceremony was attended by the manager of NIS for cooperation with universities Snežana Lakićević, the school management, numerous professors and students. In the past two years, NIS has adapted 25 computer classrooms and 4 laboratories in schools and colleges throughout Serbia.

Support for education is only one segment of NIS, which is taking place under the slogan "The Future – Now.
