Seventh-day Adventist Higher Secondary School is not a mere institution-it is a movement. The school made a modest beginning in the year 1979 with only 18 students and 02 teachers. As the school was gaining popularity for its quality education, the enrollment grew exponentially every year. In view of this, it became imperative to look for a larger place to accommodate the increasing number of enrollment. Hence, the present school located at 132 Ft. Ring Road, Haripura, Maninagar (E), Ahmedabad was built and we have entered the new portal of learning in 2003. Since then the growth of the school in all aspects has been growing by leaps and bounds. The present enrollment of the school is around 11,000 students and 566 staff and faculty. All glory to God for His guidance and blessings.
The new school building is housed in a sprawling campus of 3 acres of land. The school has three multi-storey buildings named as Alpha, Shalom & Omega. Alpha is a four-storey building having 72 classrooms; Shalom is a four storey building with Shalom Hall on the fifth floor; Omega is a five storey building with 43 classrooms. They are specially designed and are sheer architectural beauties. The school campus is a perfect setting and provides an ideal environment for the Physical, Mental, Social, Emotional and Spiritual development of our students. We provide right opportunities and ideal environments for the harmonious development of their personalities. We endeavor to instill in the students the sense of responsibility and initiative to become useful members of Society that can play a very important role in the process of nation building.
The school has achieved an enviable reputation in the field of academics as well as extra-curricular activities. It is without doubt one of the top schools in Ahmedabad. We have always maintained a standard of un-impeachable integrity and has made sure that each and every boy and girl that passes through its doors faces the outside world with a sound character.
