History of BISC
To set up an English medium school in DOHS area was first envisaged and planned by Mr. S M Al Mamun, the then DML & C and colonel ATMN Chowdhury (retd), the then Station Commander, Dhaka and founder Chairman of BISC. Foundation Stone of the school building was laid by Mr. S M Al Mamun on 2nd April 1994. It was decided to start the school with five classes from Play Group to STD I. It was also proposed that it would be developed to have classes leading up to the A level standard eventually with a profound motto to provide high quality education services in English. The School was given the cherished start on the 14th March 1995 under the dynamic leadership of founder Principal in Charge Mr. A K M Sufiur Rahman with only 27 students. BISC is situated on 1.60 acre of land in DOHS Mohakhali. Initially it was planned to establish a standard primary school here but subsequently original plan was changed as English medium school. BISC is established with a prime objective to serve the Bangladeshi and foreign communities living in cantonment area and its periphery. It is now following both National and International curricula under Pearson Edexcel, UK and accordingly preparing the students for Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and O level examination. Presently 3020 students have been studying in this institution. ‘A’ level and Higher Secondary Certificate Examination (HSC) have been started from the calendar year 2010 and 2011. This institution was initially managed by Cantonment Board, Dhaka Cantonment and subsequently by Station Headquarters, Dhaka Cantonment. Finally, it is now Army Headquarters who has been managing this institution since October 2005. In the meeting of the Cantonment board held on 4th December 1994 it was decided that Chief patron of BISC would be Chief of Army Staff, Bangladesh Army. In this connection it may be mentioned that the Chief of Army Staff was kind enough to accept the proposal and become Chief Patron with effect from 4th February 1998. The first meeting of the Governing Body was held on 29th April 1995 and in that meeting Mr. S M Al Mamun was adorned as the Life Member of this institution for his outstanding contribution. This institution is absolutely a non profitable organization.
The school has a strong academic reputation and consistently been ranked among the top schools in Bangladesh. BISC students have gone on study at top Universities at home and around the world.
