The record breaking school recently joined the bigger ‘Rupareli Group’ family after its Chairperson, Dr. Sudhir, bought it off from the pioneer owners.

Ever since the school was taken over by the Ruparelia Group, the work of setting up new standards, supervision of the construction of the modern structures among other responsibilities were given to Rajiv Ruparelia, one of Uganda’s brain-endowed youths.
“Education is better that giving money as it is a life time investment, keep up the good work that you have undertaken,” Raja Kanti one of the school’s fan lamented.
Meanwhile, the school offers its children an enriched CBSE curriculum taught by a highly qualified and trained staff.
“We believe that the diversity of our student body provides the foundation for creating involved global citizens in our rapidly changing world. We make every effort to appreciate and celebrate our differences. Building an inclusive and caring community is integral to our work,” Rajiv said.
He adds that, in keeping with the directives of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE)-Delhi, evaluation of the learner has to be done in context during the process of continuous learning.
