Notes to Editor
About BHIS Bhopal
The school is the brainchild of two young entrepreneurs, Mr. Najam Jamal and Mrs. Samina Jamal, who have donned their lives to the cause of education and believe that investment in education is the greatest service one can render to the country. Their indomitable spirit and dedication, combined with their desire to provide 'inclusive education' has been the sole driving force behind the establishment of the school. The foundation stone of the school was laid on 3rd November, 2003 and the accelerated pace of construction of the buildings and provision of other infra-structure made it possible to commence the first session of the school from April 2005. The beginning was modest, and since the Founders believed that a school can stand only on a strong foundation, only the pre-school and the primary wing was commissioned in the first year of its inception.
