At CHS, we believe that ‘education’ is a wholesome, holistic exercise and as such we strive to give a whole new meaning to the word. Coupling the basic premise with the idea of sense of belonging to one family. And this one family is the accent on the all-round development of personality. I wish you the best in the process of seeking to become a part of this family.

Mr. Arif Abbas Daruwala

Late Mrs. Mohammadi Abbas Daruwala

Founder Principal of Crescent High School & Junior College

Late Mrs Mohammadi Abbas Daruwala Born and brought up in Hyderabad in a well-educated and reputed family. Late Mrs. M. A. Daruwala, an M.A. B.Ed envisioned a society where students could avail quality education irrespective of caste, creed, class and gender. She translated this vision into reality by establishing the Crescent High School in 1975 at Gultekdi, Pune. Her dedication and hard work grew from a modest 14 students to a vibrating and pulsating Institution of 3500 students today. This was possible because of the inspiration she gained from her father Late Mr. Munshi Abdul Rehman, Director, Animal Husbandry, Maharashtra. Her dream got wings with the support and encouragement of her husband Late Mr. Abbas Daruwala.

Principal Of Crescent High School & Junior College

I am extremely sanguine that Crescent High School and Junior College since it’s genesis in 45 years has offered itself as a shell for sheltering and fostering human minds in their raw state to be matured into empowered innovators, inversionist and discoverers. The wheel of excellence and continual progress has been steered with values and conventions as its fulcrum, quality education, constant improvement in infrastructure, educational technology, teaching and learning processes as it fortifies innumerable efforts to the wheel on its track.

Mrs. Heena Daruwala

Principal Of Crescent Primary School

It gives me immense pleasure when I see my school growing and flourishing. It is hoped that the students, parents and all our well-wishers who are associated with the school, will have a feel of our know-how. We seek their co-operation and commit once more to see the sapling flourishing into a huge banyan tree for ages together. Let us make our students SMART.
