Our Story

Thirty-five years ago, a pre-school named Toddlers Nursery came into existence due to the quintessential foresight of Mrs. Insiyyah Hussain. After fifteen years of very successfully running a pre-school, the idea of building a school took shape. However, it took another five years of planning and hard work to finally make Stepping Stones High School a reality with sixty-five students and a contingent of eight very young enthusiastic teachers in the first year.
Stepping Stones High School started off as a CBSE affiliated school in 2003. Thinking, Questioning, and Reflecting are the key components of the curriculum. We encourage learning through a broad and balanced curriculum, which stresses activities that emphasize exploration, problem-solving, active involvement, language development, and a range of well-planned play opportunities. This helps the learners to develop out-of-the-box thinking and is a shift away from traditional rote learning.
 The CBSE curriculum assures holistic character development, and the children participate in active learning. As a result, they develop a practical approach towards their education that creates a lasting passion for learning.
Stepping Stones High School is an ever-developing institution, and we have very recently started hostel admissions for our students. Our hostels have state-of-the-art infrastructure with AC rooms and 24x7 CCTV surveillance and security. The students will also have special academic support to help them. In addition, the hostels are equipped with wifi and high-speed internet services to ensure that our students are offered the best facilities. Our hostel staff is experienced and well-qualified, and we offer all these and more at a very affordable fees structure.
