inspiration

School comes from the Greek word for leisure – leisure in which to learn, a place where students and teachers can flower, a place where a future generation can be prepared, because schools are meant for that, not just merely to turn out human beings as mechanical, technological instruments – though jobs and careers are necessary – but also flower as human beings, without fear, without confusion, with great integrity."


J.Krishnamurti

The inspiration. The beginning.

Inspired by the words of celebrated J.Krishnamurti (1895-1986), thinker-philosopher-teacher, we sat out to create an institution that unfettered young minds and gave them an opportunity to express their creativity in an environment of liberalism and knowledge. The year was 1993. Set in an expansive campus in verdant Dehradun, DIS started with an initial student strength of 500.

The school is located sector 69, SAS Nagar Mohali at a short distance from the renowned Fortis hospital, PCA International Cricket Stadium, Opp. The Army Institute of law and Indian School of Business (ISB).



SAS Nagar, Mohali is a vibrant young city and to most people reflects the changing face of Punjab. SAS Nagar is home to some of India’s biggest companies and multinational like Ranbaxy, Quark, Punwire etc. World class institutions like the Fortis hospital and the PCA cricket stadium are also located in close vicinity of the school. The close proximity to city beautiful Chandigarh, regarded by many as India’s most livable city is also a definite advantage.SAS Nagar is very well connected to the capital city, New Delhi by road, train, as well as by air. Travel time by road is 4 hours, by train 3 hours and about 40 minutes by air.
