Islamia High School, Quetta


  Date of Issue (May 25, 2005)    



Islamia High Schools Quetta is one of the oldest and most prestigious schools of Balochistan. It was established on 15th May, 1910 A.D. the aim was to provide a separate Muslim School for the Muslim youth to secure the entity of those Muslim students who were reluctant to their enrollment in the Non Muslim Educational Institutions. The Anjuman-e-Islamia provided full financial assistance to the school. Due to the efforts of Anjuma-e-Islamia the number of Muslim students increased to 640 up to April 1933.

The devastating earthquake of 1935 destroyed the school completely. However it was restored out of the old bricks from rubble. It was a matter of great pride for the school that Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah visited this school in 1942. The exaltation of the great Quaid can be quoted thus:

"I am very happy to visit this junior Ali Garh. I am pretty sanguine that this institution would contribute towards the establishment of a new nation for the Muslim in future."

At present the school has branches like Islamia Girls College, Islamia Girls School and the Model School, which are working under the auspices of the main school. About 6000 students are studying in these institutions.

All branches of Islamia High School are having audio visual facilities for teaching. In nutshell Islamia High School, which started just as an embryo stands today as one of the best institutions of Balochistan.

Islamia High School and its sister branches are working now keeping the following ideals in mind:-

• Providing educational facilities to all classes of society without any discrimination of race or creed.
• Providing a wider scope for the educational uplift in the country.
