The Platinum Jubilee High School, Warangal (PJHSW), under the flagship of Aga Khan Education Service, India (AKESI), was established in 1953. It invests in and optimally utilises its infrastructure and resources, while working with a team of dedicated teachers and collaborating with the community. The school aims to provide quality education and offers classes from Nursery to Grade 10.
PJHSW follows the Telangana State Curriculum and offers quality education and a wide range of educational experience to enable over 1,300 students to become thought leaders in our progressive world. PJHSW strongly believes in nurturing talent and the all-round development of students using innovative pedagogy.
PJHSW has a 100% pass rate for the Grade 10 board exams and has been awarded two prestigious awards in recognition of its quality education. The school was ranked the number one Co-Ed School in the Warangal district by the Education World Survey in 2019 and selected as the Atal Tinkering Laboratory (ATL) School of the Month five times within 10 months of launching the ATL during the 2019-20 academic year. In 2020, PJHSW's Principal, Mr Jagdish Peche, was given a certificate for his efforts as an Invigilator by Vidyarthi Vigyan Manthan, an autonomous organisation under the department of Science and Technology, the Government of India and the National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT).
PJSHW has established the ATL to teach students the 21st century skills required for science, innovation and creativity and aims to develop students to be productive members of their communities and build a better tomorrow.
Enriching lives by creatively enhancing and sustaining quality education in a relevant global environment.
To enable many generations of students to acquire both knowledge and the essential wisdom to balance that knowledge and enable their lives to attain the highest fulfilment.
We strive towards excellence with an earnest desire to continually improve, learn and grow.
Ethical values such as integrity, honesty and responsibility serve as a guiding light in challenging situations. The staff model the highest standards of ethics for students to observe and follow.
Pluralism and Diversity
India is a melting pot of cultures, customs and traditions. Accepting the diversity and having a pluralistic attitude is key to becoming contributing members of society. The school environment, staff and practices acknowledge and reflect this belief.
We are constantly learning and evolving to facilitate an excellent education for our students.
We provide students with adequate opportunities to develop and hone their perspectives. They are encouraged to be mindful about the world beyond them, its impact on their lives and vice-versa. The school strives to instil the values, attitudes and behaviours that support global citizenship, including creativity, innovation, commitment to peace, human rights and sustainable development.
Welcome to PJHSW!
I believe that school is a 'miniature society' where a child receives training for life and effective, meaningful and joyful learning takes place. It is here that we begin to learn our lessons of life, accept challenges, face competition, and rejoice at victory and triumph.
Our aim is to create curious, enquiring minds that eagerly explore ideas and concepts and communicate them confidently and effectively.
By providing them with varied experiences and perspectives, we hope to develop our students into global citizens, who not only appreciate but also nurture the planet and create a peaceful world.
We pledge to lift our students' hearts up high so that their lives will shine like stars in the sky.

The Student Council was established to provide students with the voice and choice to create a mind-set of self-direction and a powerful student-centric movement. Members have the opportunity to hone their intrapersonal and interpersonal skills and learn about the ethics of fair governance and the essence of democracy. Some of the key skills that they develop include reflection, responsibility for oneself and others, teamwork, valuing multiple perspectives and leadership.
The Student Council consists of a Secondary Student Council (Grades 9 and 10) with 20 members. These council members are democratically elected by their fellow students and teachers based on the parameters of integrity, leadership and academic achievement. The Student Council is led by the School Captains (Head Boy and Head Girl), School Vice Captains, Cultural Captains and Vice Captains, Sports Captains and Vice Captains and the House Captains and Vice Captains.
PJHSW follows a traditional methodology of apportioning pupils into smaller groups, known as houses, to create smaller communities within the wider school community. This enables students to demonstrate and develop social values and team spirit.
Each house's name is inspired by various eminent personalities in India. The four houses have a symbol, name and colour: Mahatma Gandhi House (Yellow), Mother Teresa House (Blue), A.P.J. Abdul Kalam House (Red) and Rabindranath Tagore House (Green). Furthermore, each House is represented by the House Captain and led by the House Master (Teacher).
Every student from Grade 1 onwards is assigned to one of the houses and remains in the same house throughout their school life. The students contribute to their house by participating in various interhouse competitions in sports, cultural and academic related activities throughout the year.
At PJHSW we firmly believe that parents play a pivotal role in the functioning of a school and the overall development of their children.
Parents of all sections are offered a variety of opportunities to participate in various school activities. They are also invited as resource persons to interact with students and other parents.
Parents are encouraged to volunteer their time and support the school to facilitate their child's overall development. Parental attendance on Open Days and Parent Teacher Meetings (PTMs) are compulsory.
PJHSW also seeks parental cooperation through its Parent Teacher Association – Executive Committee (PTA – EC). The PTA comprises of parents from the Primary and Secondary Sections who are elected under the guidelines of the State Education Department. The PTA – EC has one parent and one teacher as representatives of each grade. PTA – EC elections are conducted at the beginning of each academic year. Thus, the school encourages an ongoing partnership with parents to ensure the smooth functioning of its operations and support to the community.
Our alumni have gone into diverse professions. The school encourages its alumni to stay connected through the Alumni Coordinator, Mr Victor Pramod, and participate in school activities throughout the year.
