Beacon High, an independent co-educational ICSE day school, is the brain child of Mrs. R.K. Khariwalla and Mrs. K.S. Jamali, who between them share more than 60 years in the field of education. The school is managed under the aegis of R.K. Educational Foundation.
Beacon High was conceived out of a realization for the need of an educational institution that would tap the innate intellectual curiosity of the child and channelize this sense of exploration to bring about an all round development.
Since its inception in the year 2000, the school has blossomed from a strength of 54 students to almost 700 students at present. Each class from Pre-Nursery to Grade X comprises of not more than 26 students.
Eight Batches of ICSE have appeared and passed with 100% results
