Welcome To Sardar Dastur Hoshang Boys School
In today’s ever-changing world, one of education’s great challenges is to respond to the growing demands of the education environment so as to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in schools. The new paradigm requires that the educational system adapts itself by offering an environment which adequately meets the needs of students and teachers as opposed to having school patterns fit into the existing environment. This inevitably implies flexibility and adaptations in many areas – including the planning and designing of schools which correspond to these evolving needs.
The Sardar Dastur Hoshang Boys’ High School, established in 1912, is situated at the centre of the Dastur Schools Campus. It was initially built as a residential school for providing education not only to local students but also to students outside Pune. However, now it is a school only for day scholars.
