It was originally set up in a residential neighborhood at 11 Johnson Street, Illupeju. The school began as converted residences — cramped with three floors, a playground, a basketball court and volleyball court. Over the past few years, the school has expanded significantly, acquiring nearby properties, thus catering to the large number of students that enroll with the school each year.
Approximately 3,000 students are registered. The school surrogates the Central Board of Secondary Education and helps Indian students residing overseas to transition into higher education programs. The school has several sports events like basketball, football, table tennis, badminton, cricket and volleyball. It provides students an opportunity to explore a diverse range of possibilities both academic and extra-curricular. It has a basketball court and a volleyball court while table tennis is played in a separate part of the building. A separate nearby residence has been bought by the school, where a five-a-side football field has been constructed along with a badminton court.
The school has an Interact Club with the president as Tina Sood. The initiative of the Interact Club was taken up by school head boy Raghav Raj Savara.
The school follows the CBSE board of education. The textbooks used by the students are provided by the NCERT. There are almost 150 teachers. The languages taught to the students are English, Hindi, and the choice of the third language is between Tamil, French and Sanskrit. Only class 6 and above have to learn a third language. The other subjects include Social Studies, Science, Mathematics, Accountancy, Business Studies, English, and Computer lessons.
