Our founders started the school named Blackdale Public School in 1997 on encouragement of Dr. M. Rehman (Padma Shri Awardee), IAS, the then Vice Chancellor, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh under dynamic leadership of Prof. M. M. R. K. Afridi, former Head and Dean at the Aligarh Muslim University, with his vast managerial experience of several schools. Late Prof. M. Shafi (Padma Shri Awardee), former Pro-Vice Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor and Pro-Chancellor, AMU was also a guiding light behind this noble project. Through the sincere devotion of the founders and the efforts of the entire management board our school is targeting a never-ending source of knowledge for all those who become a part of it.
