Welcome to The Alexandra Girls' English Institution, a 155 years old school, situated in the heart of Mumbai.

The Alexandra Girls' English Institution aims not only at fostering a spirit of good will amongst the young girls of different races and communities, but also to send out well groomed, modest young ladies prepared to face life in all its varied aspects.

At The Alexandra Girls' English Institution, we offer to provide not only a challenging academic environment emphasizing on education but also social and personal development of every girl passing through the portals of this esteemed Institution.

As the new Principal of The Alexandra Girls' English Institution, I am delighted that the school’s values are similar to my own personal values, including the importance of trust, respect, innovation and a sense of belonging.

The school sets high standards and expectations for each student in regard to academic performance, co-curricular participation, and responsible citizenship are the foundation of this Institution. It is with pride that we hold these high standards and ask of each of our students to commit to maintaining the extraordinary record of achievement and contribution that has been the legacy of The Alexandra Girls' English Institution students.

In this prestigious Institution, the faculty strives for excellence by preparing students for learning beyond their school years and assisting them to become lifelong learners, as well as helping them to be self-directed, realistic and responsible decision makers when solving problems that they will encounter in this multicultural, ever-changing world.

We also value relationships and connections with the world. We encourage our students to cultivate respectful relationships with their peers, teachers and the broader community. We instill in our girls a keen social conscience and imbibe the capacity to make ethical decisions. We work hard to develop and sustain productive, loving and respectful connections with the parents of all our students. The Alexandra Girls' English Institution is proud to be a high performing institution and aims to be the selective school of first choice for many families in all communities alike.

The students of The Alexandra Girls' English Institution graduate with the skills, mind sets and qualities that will best equip them for success in the future. Our students are intelligent, resilient, creative, imaginative, disciplined, dedicated to life-long learning, respectful and ethical. They are the future leaders and role models of society.

The Institution strongly believes in the importance of teachers, parents and administrators collaborating and communicating openly and frequently. Thus, continually improving the quality of tools of communication, which includes giving our parents access to an interactive website where they can retrieve pertinent information about their children’s academic achievement and day to day activities.

We visualize every child as a unique store house of potential ideas and skills to be discovered and nurtured to blossom and grow into young achievers. The extensive and centrally located campus provides the best ambiance for a vibrant school career.

The Alexandra Girls' English Institution believes that effective teachers:

  • Create opportunities for intellectual calculated collaboration, problem-solving and application of
    classroom learning to real life situations aiming implementation of strategies that promote ownership of learning to students.
  • Design instruction to integrate a variety of innovative technological tools and resources to enhance learning.
  • Demonstrate ongoing professional growth in order to increase the quality of instruction and teaching methods.
  • Collaborate with colleagues to share and discuss exemplary practices, interpret student performance data and design assessments that promote a different class of twenty- first century skills.

We believe that successful students:
Communicate in a meaningful way for a variety of purposes and audiences.
Demonstrate sensitivity to the precision and nuances of written, visual and aural medium through different levels of comprehension, interpretation and evaluation.
Use critical and creative thinking skills to solve problems and pose questions, examine possibilities and apply skills to find solutions to authentic issues.
Make positive choices related to physical and mental wellness; and thus contributing to the local and global community in a collaborative and respectful manner.

It is indeed my honour to serve as the Principal of The Alexandra Girls' English Institution and make every effort to take the school to greater heights.
