Founder & Chairperson's Message


A school is a wonderland of learning, a universal institution that initiates children into the first steps of knowledge and instills and sustains in them the curiosity and passion to have a quest for learning and a zest for life, always. And, as in every human endeavour, for learning to be effective and enduring it ought to be engaging and enjoyable. We believe that every child is a reservoir of talents and, given the right environment and impetus, they will blossom intellectually and holistically beyond our imagination.

It is these central tenets that continue to define and guide every thought and action at Dhirubhai Ambani International School, in our pursuit of providing world-class educational opportunities to children. Our focus is on building a school where learning is a joy, and teaching a pleasure; a school that places the child at the heart of every endeavour; a school that makes learning meaningful and progressive; a school with an Indian mind, an Indian heart and an Indian soul; a school that provides a robust foundation for children to grow into knowledgeable, creative, compassionate and capable human beings and responsible citizens.

The School's motto “Dare to Dream… Learn to Excel” encapsulates our aspirations and the enormity of effort required to bring about excellence in every facet of the School. Every element of the School resonates with this philosophy: curriculum, pedagogy, recruitment, professional development, use of technology, co-curricular life, international links, service to community, parents' participation, and so on.

The highest standards of excellence that the School has achieved so far, on all performance parameters, speak for themselves. All these years, consistently across all the three curricula – ICSE, IGCSE and IB Diploma – our students have achieved outstanding results in the board examinations, and our IB Diploma graduates have been accepted at the world's top universities. Year after year, our children have also been excelling in a variety of sporting and co-curricular activities, winning prizes at state, national and international levels; while service to community forms an integral part of the education at DAIS. This invigorating blend of academic accomplishments and all-round development of children has placed DAIS amongst the league of top international schools worldwide.

That our alumni have already started making their mark, by joining leading organizations worldwide or by taking the entrepreneurial route, is another touchstone of the enduring impact our school has been making all along.

For the entire DAIS community, all these years have been a treasured journey, the realization of a shared dream, of giving 'what is best for the child'. Parents' trust in us and the extraordinary commitment of our teachers, staff and administrators have been pivotal to all our accomplishments

The future has always to be better than the past. Every achievement has inspired us to continually set new benchmarks of excellence, year after year. As we look ahead, we are committed to building on the strong foundation we have laid and striving to be constantly on a continuum of excellence. We welcome you to be part of this journey as we put in our best effort to be a beacon of a better future for the next generation…

       With the paradigm of education ever-changing, let us take the arc of history in our hands and build a better tomorrow for our children, in imaginative and innovative ways.
