Prominent Muslim school in unique art deco building

This school is the pride of the Muslim community of Ahmedabad. It’s an old institution but a very open and progressive one. We celebrate all festivals with equal fervour and educate our children to become good human beings

Progressive Muslim institution

Modelled after the famous Aligarh Muslim University, this school was built a century ago by some esteeemed Gujarati Muslims. In true Ahmedabad nature, the school was set up as a co-ed and open to all castes and religions. Principal KM Qureshi says, “Our school has a glorious legacy of educating illustrious students, who went on to become doctors, lawyers, and leaders – the school stands as an important chapter in the history of the city.”

Art Deco meets traditional architecture

Unique for Ahmedabad, this building has art deco elements, making it a great landmark on Swami Vivekananda Road. Lovingly repainted and restored over the years by the school community.
