Expressing his delight at the announcement, Chairman, Narain Sawlani said: “It is probably the most historic moment in the life of the Indian High School, Dubai. It has long been our dream and desire to build and raise this institution on par with international standards. We have always endeavoured to provide our students with the facilities, resources, and a learning environment that is compatible with any globalised institution. We would like to look at ourselves as a paradigm of modern education. That the Ministry, the government and society has recognised and endorsed our efforts is a matter of great delight and gratification to us,” he added.

Commenting on what makes the Indian High School different from other schools, Ashok Kumar, CEO and Principal remarked: “I would assume that the difference really lies in our thinking, our planning, our perspectives and of course the superior quality of student and teacher life that exists in our school. We have so many ‘firsts’ to our credit. We are the first and only school with an ISO 9001:2000 certification, anywhere in the Gulf. We were the first school to offer such contemporary subjects such as Entrepreneurship, Fashion Designing, Multimedia and Web Designing etc., to our students. We are also the only school to offer on line e-counselling to our students. None of this could have been possible but for our planning, our vision, and our seriousness of purpose.” The Indian High School students have regularly featured in the top 3 positions in the UAE in the class 10 and 12 Board exams. In the 2005, Class 12 Board Exams, our student Krishnakumar Ajithkumar set a record of sorts by securing an astounding 94.8% in the Science Group and topping in the UAE, he added.
