Learning style is significantly correlated with the intelligence of students. There are different types of learning style which impact on the improvement of intelligence as well as achievement of students. The study aims to identify the relationship between the learning styles and intelligence of high school Chepang. The study had adopted the concept of learning style of Fleming’s and Multiple Intelligence Theory of Howard Gardner to find the relationship. The study was conducted in Makwanpur, Chitwan, Gorkha and Dhading district of Nepal among the 368 Chepang students of grade 9 and 10. The result found that there was very weak relationship between the learning styles and intelligence of students. There was lack of knowledge and practice of different types of learning styles among the students and teachers were also not fully aware about the concept of learning styles as described by Fleming and types of multiple intelligence as Gardner. Students were also not aware on their own intelligence so which caused the weak relationship between the learning style and intelligence. There is need of specific course to aware the teacher and students about the learning styles and skill to evaluate their own intelligence.
