STEAM education, in Nepal, is gaining momentum in school education for equipping all students to solve the challenges of today’s world that are increasingly complex in nature. In the context of Nepal, the implementation of STEAM in school education is difficult for educators, teachers, and other stakeholders as it may require an understanding of the need for STEAM integration. Against this backdrop, the purpose of this study is to explore school leaders’ perceptions of STEAM and its importance in education. A qualitative research design was preferred to conduct the narrative inquiry for knowing the perception of school leaders. This study has tried to explore different perceptions of school leaders regarding STEAM as an integrated approach to teaching and learning activities. Regular interaction with leaders, teachers, and other stakeholders helps to perceive the need for STEAM as a pedagogical approach in school-level education. However, they are alluring the need for regular support to school leaders and teachers for understanding and implementing STEAM in schools in Nepal. This study is useful to school leaders and educators for the implementation of the STEAM approach in school-level education. It is supportive to policymakers in education for the integration of STEAM in the curriculum as well. The recommendation of this study is to provide clues for further research and to expand and extend perceptions of school leaders for better understanding through workshops and training.
