  • About Dalhousie Hilltop School


    Dalhousie Hilltop School overlooks the town from a quiet, sunny campus nestled amongst pine trees and apple orchards. The natural beauty of the Himalayan region is legendary. While Dalhousie has received acclaim as a paradise of beauty, Hilltop School stands tall as a haven for learning.

    The scenic and pristine location of DHS is uniquely suited to provide a natural, structured and nurturing environment to bring out the best in our children and to teach them the academics, moral values and life skills that will empower and guide them to be successful global citizens of our society. It is our firm belief that learning does not happen merely in the confines of four walls. It happens through discovery, interaction, engagement and experience. That’s why we have structured every small detail to ensure complete conduciveness for a rewarding educational experience.

  • Our Humble Beginning

    Shri. Inder Mohan Dhawan dedicated his entire retired life to children and to the cause of education. He started the school in 1979. The campus that homes Dalhousie Hilltop School, is an ancestral property, an ideal place Mr. Dhawan felt, to start an educational haven for children. Having essayed many roles in prominent positions in India and abroad, Mr. Dhawan committed himself to the cause of building leaders, one child at a time.

    What began then has progressed today into an institution which is renowned and reputed for the quality of education and conducive ambience for learning. Some pupils show obvious academic ability from an early age; others may need more encouragement. We help each child discover their aptitude and develop their confidence as they experience numerous opportunities within and beyond the classroom. Parents are involved in their child’s education at every step along the way; progress is regularly and rigorously reported and the achievements of students are recognised and celebrated. Because the children learn and grow within our secure and nurturing environment they develop a caring attitude towards each other, their school and the world around them. To us, every child is an individual. We know them better than they know themselves; that is our job. Our outstanding pastoral care and nurturing environment help them to find and develop their own individual talents. Students leave Hilltop with the intellectual curiosity, confidence, compassion and independence that they will need in their future lives. We have a reputation for turning out impressive young adults. Their achievements shine – in academic success and community spirit. They can build the strong relationships, both personal and professional, that are vital for a successful career. And they do not just follow the beaten track; hilltop students seek fulfillment, not conformity.
