|History & Overview|
"School comes from the Greek word for leisure – leisure in which to learn, a place where students and teachers can flower, a place where a future generation can be prepared, because schools are meant for that, not just merely to turn out human beings as mechanical, technological instruments – though jobs and careers are necessary – but also flower as human beings, without fear, without confusion, with great integrity."J.KrishnamurtiThe inspiration. The beginning.
Inspired by the words of celebrated J.Krishnamurti (1895-1986), thinker-philosopher-teacher, we sat out to create an institution that unfettered young minds and gave them an opportunity to express their creativity in an enviornment of liberalism and knowledge. The year was 1993. Set in an expansive campus in verdant Dehradun, DIS started with an initial student strength of 500.
Doon International School is an acknowledged institution of excellence, a co-educational, day and residential school operating out of two campuses-Dehradun and Mohali. The school is in fact and spirit an international school, catering to the needs of students from all parts of the world.
