Message from Nita Ambani – Founder & Chairperson

A school's aim is to provide an enabling environment that helps nurture and develop every child's unique talent and potential to the fullest. We believe that education must help children to excel holistically across academics, sports, arts and co-curricular pursuits, while ensuring their safety and well-being. At Dhirubhai Ambani International School, these tenets are central to our philosophy and inspire us in everything that we do.

It is our school's endeavour to provide children with opportunities to learn in multidimensional ways and explore the limitless possibilities in their quest for knowledge. Since inception, our overarching goal has been to make DAIS a happy school, where teaching is a pleasure and learning is a joy; where learning and excelling is a passion, and culture and values have a pre-eminent place. Our caring and committed teachers are our pillars of strength. They teach our children not just with their minds but with their hearts, making learning enjoyable and rewarding, and instilling in children sound values and attributes.

Our excellent educational programmes are complemented by state-of-the art facilities and resources, and our focus on sports and co-curricular opportunities facilitates children's holistic education.

Our accomplishments over the past fourteen years and our reputation as one of the world's top schools exemplify the success of our educational model – an international school with an Indian mind, an Indian heart and an Indian soul. We are also proud that in recognition of our commitment to high standards of excellence, our school has been awarded joint accreditation by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). These achievements inspire us to continue to do our best, in preparing children for the future.

I warmly invite you to explore DAIS as we re-dedicate ourselves every day, to impart the very best education to young minds.
