HISTORY / BACKGROUND:
Defence Housing Authority (DHA) Lahore is the name known across the board for its efficiency, trust and reliability. It has embarked upon a gigantic programme of bringing about revolution in the development of vast area in the environment of DHA. Besides construction of network of roads, hospitals and shopping plazas, DHA is providing modern amenities of life in the vicinity. This includes provision of quality education facilities with state of the art features to its residents.
The school came into being as a Primary School in April 1993. The next year, in 1994 it was raised to Matric Level. Our move forward continued and in Sep 1995, the School was raised to The Higher Secondary Level (Intermediate) to accommodate college classes, as well.
In the early 1999, another milestone was achieved by introducing O’ Level classes in the school. The school got registered with Cambridge University, UK for the same purpose. In the year 2002, the first batch of O’ Level students of this school appeared in the examination held in May / June 2002. The school showed excellent performance and out of 10 appeared one of the students attained 7 A’s. The School has been producing excellent results in the Matric examination since its inception.
Getting children into school is one thing, educating them is quite another. The former may be easier but the latter task is quite daunting nowadays. These are sensitive times and maintaining a balance between quality education and character building is no easy feat. We, at DHA Senior School for Boys put in our best to do exactly that. We believe that the role of a school is not only to enable academic excellence, but character building, instilling high moral values, development of wholesome personality and awareness of societal obligations are central to what we offer here.
It is a learning community that seeks success for each student as we strive to deepen our core values of unshakeable faith, belief in hard work, achievements through honest and fair means and facing challenges boldly.
We are committed to identifying unfinished learning and leveraging ingenuity, innovation, and resources to create equitable and equal opportunities for our students. Additionally, we will continue to endeavor to help every child actualize his potential.
I would like the parents to know that my door is always open to discuss any concerns, questions, or ideas you may have regarding your child’s education. I welcome you all to an outstanding learning community where everyone is dedicated to a high standard of excellence.
