Activity High School was founded in 1953, in Mumbai, as a preschool based on the Montessori Method of teaching. In 1968, it became a full-fledged institution affiliated to the CBSE system.
The curriculum focuses on integral education, which is a philosophy and practice of educating the whole child. The main aim is to develop a child naturally in a conducive environment, with emphasis given to build a child’s strong foundation, which helps him to become a leader of tomorrow. The school has a remedial and counseling service to help and guide children to deal with pressure.
So there we are, winding down our exploration through the Activity clan. My commitment to this school began at the age of 13 when I started living with and as a part of the Doongaji family. I had the opportunity of studying in Std's V and VI of Activity High School and not further because at that time our classes were only upto Std. VI.
While in college and still living with the Doongaji family I used to help Mrs. Doongaji teach classes at her school, and help promote the school. After completing the Bachelors, I joined the school in 1972 as a teacher and personal assistant to Mrs. Doongaji and have been working there ever since, helping to collectively mould the institution to where it is today.
I am proud to be the Principal of ACTIVITY HIGH SCHOOL, one of the best schools in South Mumbai, and carry the torch of excellence in education that was set ablaze by Mrs. D. Doongaji moving forward to greater heights.
Our school is dedicated to providing its students with thehead start in today's competitive world. Our mission is to educate children through a comprehensive academic curriculum,supported by critical thinking skills, as well as communication development.
Activity was a school founded by Zoroastrians. We take pride in enrolling a large number of Parsi students, along side with being a secular school open and equal to children from all religions and walks of life.
We pride ourselves on our academic strength too. Activity has held the flag high with a 100% of our students graduating every year at the ICSE exams. Our students have always been in the top percentile and have moved on to some of the best colleges and institutions in the nation and abroad.
Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, President, Professor, and the man who personifies the spirit of education, has rightly said that "education is there to help us find out what we are and for, in the world and the three R's of education should be replaced by the three H's i.e. Head, Heart and Hands".
