About Us

At the Diamond Jubilee High School (ICSE), Mumbai, we believe in inspiring minds and nurturing talent. We follow the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) curriculum, offering classes from nursery to high-school level.

The School was founded in 1947 by Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah, Aga Khan III, when India gained independence from the British. Since then, the effort has always been to provide the best education possible to students from all backgrounds by investing in and maximizing utilization of our infrastructure and resources.

We use an education pedagogy that is developed by the Aga Khan Education Services (AKES), to give young children the support they need to sharpen their minds and develop self-confidence. Apart from the spacious classrooms, we also have an audio-visual room, art room, two computer labs, three science labs for Physics, Chemistry & Biology, two separate libraries for primary and secondary, different play areas and a number of indoor and outdoor sports to foster the overall development of the students.

Our unique Teachers’ Resource Centre is a great place for our teachers to improve their professional skills and keep up with the latest developments in education. We aim to inspire our students and teachers alike to build a rich learning environment.

We serve over 1400 students and offer a wide-range of educational experiences so that they can become thoughtful leaders in our communities.

Our Parents

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

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

The School also seeks parental co-operation and assistance through the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). There are separate associations for the pre-primary, primary and secondary sections, which are elected annually according to State Education Department stipulations.

PTA members assist the School in:

  • Reviewing the school's progress through Parent Orientation Programmes (POPs)
  • Effectively communicating between the School and parents
  • Supporting various activities by the School like organizing social events for the students

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


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