About Us

The Diamond Jubilee High School in Hyderabad is an exciting place for education, where academic and extra-curricular activities complement each other to provide superior education and develop well-rounded individuals.

The School was established in 1949 by the Youngmen Ismailia Education Board, and in 1997 it became a part of the Aga Khan Education Service, India.

This co-educational, English-medium school is divided between two campuses; the one on Chirag Ali Lane is the main campus, while the one on Nampally Station Road holds the primary section. At present, the School serves over 600 students from diverse backgrounds, from primary to high-school level.

The State Board of Secondary Education (Government of Telangana) curriculum is augmented by school outings, projects and many extra-curricular activities. We also continuously try to enhance the educational resources, classroom equipment and infrastructure. Our teachers are encouraged to participate in our self-development and skill-development initiatives. At the school, we treat parents as partners in education to ensure a seamless learning process for the kids and their overall growth.

Over the years, we have continued to provide quality education to the children in Hyderabad.

From the Principal's Desk

Dear All,

Welcome to DJHS!

The world of the classroom and learning has undergone both visible and invisible changes. There is an immediate need to prepare the current generation to face the new realities and emerging trends – knowledge, the digital age etc. It has changed the way children think, learn and imagine their worlds.

Our Primary school curriculum is carefully designed to cater to the needs of changing trends in learning and facilitate the learning of skills that are very relevant for students' current and future needs. The blend of activities, hands-on experiences, celebrations and field trips bring out the best. –These activities represent the shift from an emphasis on providing content to providing skills, from looking at the classroom as the only point of learning to accepting that learning happens across life spaces.

We encourage our children to observe the world around and to express themselves in a variety of ways. Children need to touch, feel, explore, analyze, investigate and experience. Through active participation, learning goes beyond knowing to experiencing.

We are very conscious of the fact that emotional stability plays a very significant role in the healthy growth of the child. One important tool is a curriculum which is based on an open and interactive approach.

All our school activities are therefore based on the spirit to discover. They are designed to strengthen the inherent talent in the students while bolstering their physical, emotional, social and cultural needs.

In our high school, apart from intensive curricular training through interactive approaches, our co-curricular activities like drama, art, music, dance, sports, yoga, etc., develop students' motor skills as well as their creative and imaginative skills.

Our creative, passionate and committed staff constantly work to provide an environment that nurtures stress-free learning that brings out the hidden talents in our children.

Because educators also need to learn, unlearn and relearn to remain contemporary and fill the need gaps in learning, we constantly update our staff through periodic training programmes.

We believe that a strong communication network is essential for the creation of a successful school. We will continue to endeavor to build an ongoing relationship between students, teachers, parents and community. We welcome your suggestions to make the learning process more effective.

Best Regards,

Dr. Sujatha Gade

Our Parents

As children's first educators, parents are important partners in the development of positive learning outcomes for their children.

The active participation of parents in workshops and support provided to their children in consultation with the educators of the School will ensure self-actualization of the student.

When parents and school work in collaborative harmony, children are responsive, take greater initiative and are more likely to be actively involved in their own learning.

The School functions in a friendly and secular environment that supports and encourages an on-going partnership between the school, parents and management.

The School encourages parents to be involved in the social and emotional development of their child and to actively contribute to the effective functioning of the School.

The School regularly seeks parental co-operation and assistance through the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), which promotes a closer relationship between home and the School. There are separate associations for the pre-primary, primary and secondary sections. Each is elected annually according to State Education Department guidelines.

PTA members assist the School in:

  • Reviewing the School's progress through Parent Development Meetings (PDMs)
  • Effectively communicating between the school and parents
  • Supporting the school's various activities and initiatives, e.g. organizing social events for students


The Admission policy of the School is transparent, merit-based and non-discriminatory.
