In the pre-independence era the education provided by the elite schools of Kolkata was based on Western mores, which completely ignored India's rich cultural heritage. Parents who wanted their wards to receive an education based on traditional Indian values were thus faced with a moral dilemma. It took one eminent thinker, our founder, the late Sri.L.N.Birla to translate vision into reality. To fulfil this mission, Hindi High School was established in 1940. A unique educational institution, its aim was to impart learning that blended the traditional with the modern, the aesthetic with the scientific. This vision of ushering in a new order in the sphere of education found emblematic representation in the school motto, "Tamaso Ma Jyotirgamay" - from darkness unto light.Hindi High School was re-christened Birla High School in 1997.

Principal's Desk

In the modern times, class-room instruction does not fulfil all the requirements for the new age pupil. Knowledge is now accessible at the click of a mouse anytime and anywhere. However, the teachers role is important in moulding character. Teachers must be role models to students. After the home, the next best person to inculcate moral values is the teacher. At various times, a teacher is called to be a mentor, counsellor, nurse, surrogate parent, and guide. She has many hats to wear. The success of a school lies in how well she can juggle these hats.
