About Us

We, the Badhani’ites

Sh. M.S.Grewal the eminent boarding school specialist, after contributing to various boarding schools, founded Dalhousie Public School at Dalhousie, India. When he found his vision being diluted, he quit active involvement at Dalhousie and moved on. He handed the baton this time, to his son P.S.GREWAL Helped by his revered BEEJI and wife RUPAM GREWAL, PS created what is today this magnificent institution. The spirit and vision of Dalhousie Public School came with the founder to BADHANI – India. Whatever a boarding school of today should be, exists at BADHANI.

At The Badhani School we’re more than just a school—we’re a community, a family. A family of over 800 students from different countries who live, learn, play, and grow together, making friendships along the way that will last a lifetime.

Our teachers don’t just teach – they inspire. Our students don’t just study – they challenge themselves, expanding their horizons and excelling in ways they never imagined before arriving here. Our entire global community of parents and alumni thrives on the energy that exudes from our beautiful sprawling 100-acre campus.

A lot of people say The Badhani School is like Hogwarts, and while we might not teach magic, there is definitely something magical happening in the Shivalik Foothills. You need to see it to believe it!

Our admissions staff evaluates various aspects including academic records, a personal profile, reference letters, and an interview of the parent and the child.

Students of classes 7-12 can enroll for an American High School Diploma by seeking admission in the unique Prep-Digi program offered by ASU at the Badhani campus.

Students of classes 10-12 can enroll for undergraduate programs of Arizona State University by seeking admission to the Accelerate program at the Badhani campus which helps in earning credits of one full semester in ASU while studying in India.

Eagerness to embrace the global culture and free thinking helps smoothen the admission process for students to Badhani.


There is an old African proverb “It takes a village to raise a child”, so you need to choose your village wisely.

As you turn a corner on the Dalhousie highway you suddenly get a glimpse of a spectacular castle like building sitting on a hill. At the end of the gracious building are two towers – the windows shine, the green creepers that cover parts of the wall makes it look like an old time castle especially when the sun is behind it.

Just murmuring the words “The Badhani School” brings a little warm feeling into the heart. The rising sun on the tidy front gardens lighting up the flagged stone stairs  with the Badhani’ites  gathering each morning for prayers, feeling warm and sheltered creates an ethereal picture.

The chirping of hundreds of children from the doorways and the corridors, running along the main school building filled with the sound of hurrying feet, laughter and chattering makes this a scared ground for generations to come.

The green grass sinking below the level of the court, encircled with stone seats rising upwards around it, an audience of children exploding with cheers and catcalling out to their favorite teams having good fun, all while learning is what -The Badhani School is all about.


A good teacher is possessed with an innate ability to inspire…..A great teacher simply loves their student and their job.”

Hardly anything matters more than education. When you send your child to school what matters most is who teaches them when they get there. The benefits of having been in the class of a good teacher cascades down the years. Being in the classroom of a great teacher is a glacial process which directly affects a child’s personal evolution in their lifetime.

The Badhani School is recognized as among the best because our teachers never stop thinking about how to get better at teaching. Our classroom is designed to elicit continual improvement. Our students consistently beat country wide average scores, achieving impressive results.


“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit” ― Aristotle
