Message from the Chairman of the Board
Dear Prospective Parents,
We are delighted that you are considering The Doon School for your son’s future. This institution has honed and finetuned a learning and life-skilling system that has been envied and benchmarked across India and the region for many decades.
An investment made in a Doon School education pays many dividends through life. From the moment he enters the school gates as a 12-year old, a child gets to realise who he is; and where his potential lies. Irrespective of his background or calibre, he is groomed and nurtured in a way that he can stride into the adult world, confidently, responsibly and independently. Multiple generations of successful students are living proof that this unique learning system works, and works well.
Yet, in today’s world, no institution of repute and quality can afford to sit on its laurels. So, a decisive shift is being engineered that will help India’s best school gain a global reputation, and go where no school from India has ever gone.
In the next five years, therefore, the focus will to be on academic excellence. This will help students get into the finest higher education institutions in India and around the world. Initiatives are also being put in place that will allow students to fit into a rapidly changing adult world. At the same time, the school’s big strength — pedagogy balanced with pastoral care — will be supported in equal measure to enhance the school’s standing as the Best School in India.
Unfortunately, when it comes to quality and excellence, there are no free lunches, nor can there be any compromises. To ensure that The Doon School scales newer peaks, fees will necessarily need to be raised from time to time. As our potential parent partners, we look forward to your support on this. Of course, for an institution with a mission to find and develop exceptional boys from all backgrounds we also have the means to offer financial assistance in the form of needs-based scholarships.
Should you require any financial clarification or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the school in advance of your son’s arrival to further understand the financial assistance on offer and how the school can assist you in this matter.
With all good wishes,
Sunil Kant Munjal
