This state-of-the-art institution is conceived to offer a cutting-edge learning environment, boasting flexible spaces that encourage collaboration among students, catering to personalized instruction, and enabling both small group discussions and large-scale collaborations.
Building upon the illustrious legacy of DAIS, which has soared to eminence under the leadership of Mrs. Nita Ambani, the school aims to replicate its excellence and nurture the potential of young minds. Reflecting on the journey that led to this momentous occasion, Mrs. Ambani shared, “We envisioned DAIS as a place where teaching becomes a joy and learning, a delight. The transformation we’ve witnessed in just two decades, impacting numerous lives, fills us with gratitude. With optimism, we look to the future as the new generation leads, committed to upholding this culture of excellence.”
