Founded in 1995 by the Tibetan lama Khen Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan with 25 students in a one-room shed, the school is now a private school with over 300 students in grades K-10. No child is denied admission on the basis of financial need. Students at Siddhartha School learn four languages: Ladakhi, Tibetan, Hindi, and English. In addition, their studies include math, sciences, computer, civics, creative arts, and physical education.
When the school opened, just under 10% of all students taking the Class 10 Indian Standard Exam in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, where the school is located, passed. By the year 2010 that figure had risen to 24.8%.
