Indira Priyadarshini School was started in June 1975. The School was started to meet a grave situation arising out of the derecognition and closure of some High Schools in Jayanagar in early 1975. The sanctioning of this school inspite of great opposition from some local vested interests was a just recognition of the educational needs of the locality by the Department of Public Instruction.
On the recommendations of the Department of Public Instruction the Government came forward, reportedly for the first time in history of Karnataka with a special gesture by sanctioning all the 3 classes viz., 8th , 9th and 10th in the 1st year itself. On behalf of the parents and teachers who have been benefitted by this, we express our sincere gratitude to the Government of Karnataka. The school started functioning from a rented Building at 4th ‘T’ Block, Jayanagar, Bangalore.
During 1996, with the help of the Education Minister Late Sri. A.R. Badri Narayan School could get a C.A. Site allotted and the present address at J.P.Nagar III Phase , Jayanagar, Bangalore.
Ever since the school was started, it has been catering to the needs of students, by encouraging them by all possible ways. The school never admites students on the basis of economic back ground and admission are done on first cum first serve basis.
Still, the school has faired well in S.S.L.C Examination and other activities.
