Nazo Ana high schools are girls' schools in Afghanistan. One is in "Mikrorayan-e-Awal" in District 9 of Kabul City, Afghanistan, and the other is in Kandahar City.

The schools are named after Nazo Tokhi, known mostly as Nazo Ana or Nazoo Anaa, (1651–1717) (Pashto: نازو انا‎) — a prominent Pashtun poet and a literary figure of the Pashto language.[1] Mother of the famous early-18th century Afghan King Mir Wais, she grew up in the Kandahar region.[2] Nazo Tokhi is remembered as a brave woman warrior in the history of Afghanistan, who eventually became the legendary "Mother of Afghan Nation."[3][4]
