Overview

The Assam Valley School, Balipara is a co-ed boarding school affiliated with The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE). Founded in 1995 by the Williamson Magor Education Trust, the school prides itself in being a ‘School for adventure’ where education cherishes, enhances and inspires a student to be the best that they can be. The institution was founded with the core aspiration of bringing an institution to North-Eastern India which will be an amalgamation of the dynamics of a public school with a pan-Indian reach.

Offering state-of-the-art infrastructure, high-quality faculty, contemporary IT-enabled pedagogies, advanced pastoral care and a plethora of co-curricular and extra-curricular options, AVS seeks to help the students attain their fullest academic potential and facilitate the imparting of a holistic education which addresses the physical, cultural and artistic realms. Within 13 years since it was promoted with the objective of “training young minds for citizenship in a globally connected world,” the school has set new paradigms for globally-benchmarked, holistic education at affordable prices.

This school is a member of the International Round Square Movement and The Indian Public Schools’ Conference member.
