About Us


Eastern Public School (EPS) began its journey with just one teacher and one student in April 2003. The objective was not to add one more school to a long list of schools in the town.  Instead, the idea was to create an extraordinary institution for learning where world-class education is blended with the core values and practices (not just knowledge) of Islam. A few months later, we had 23 students in the inaugural batch of EPS.


Since then, we have grown organically, adding one grade every year. We now have 15 grades (from nursery to 12th grade) and approximately 370 students in total as of July 2015.

In our pursuit to bringing the world’s best educational program to our kids, we began implementing the Primary Year’s Program of the International Baccalaureate (IB) in 2006.

We believe that IB is the best program that prepares students to face the ever changing global scenario with courage and fortitude; helping them develop as principled and caring individuals who in turn will help shape a productive, peaceful and prosperous society.

Under the leadership of Ms Reshma Owais (EPS Principal at that time) and supported by a history-making team, we became the first IB PYP authorized school in Bhopal in the year 2011. This achievement brought Bhopal on the international education map. But that was just the first milestone in our journey to bring the very best school education to our town. We then set our sight on our next goal i.e. the MYP authorization.

In Feb 2012, we became an MYP authorized school as well. Again, the only MYP School in Bhopal!

After having achieved PYP and MYP authorization, we continued our onward journey towards  the DP authorization. This was the most challenging part of the entire IB authorization experience. Under the leadership of Mr Javed Khan, Academic Head, we received DP Authorization  in April 2014.

Soon after, Mr S. R. Radhakrishnan joined EPS from Pathways World School, Gurgaon as our DP Coordinator and Head of Mathematics Department.

With full authorization of all the three IB programs – PYP, MYP and DP – EPS  became the 1st IB Continuum school in Bhopal, 2nd in Madhya Pradesh and 10th in India.

Adding another jewel to the crown, the school received IGCSE Authorization from Cambridge International Examinations in June 2014.

The School had number of visitors through this jouney who are very eminent IB Educators during these processes of Authorization and otherwise.  The list include Mario Gauci, Murray Scoble, Tasneem Khan, Monita Sen, Richael Langetdursin, Pramila Sen, Khona Bhattacharjee, Rama Shindey, Angelica Sharma, Veena DSilva, Paula Euinto, Kaisar Dopashi, Gillian Presland, Ashish Trivedi, Jasmine Madhani, Suprio Bhowmick,  Riad Rojoa, Priyamvada Taneja ...They have been part of visiting teams, In-school workshop leaders or Advisors. EPS owes a great deal to every one of them.

Then the best thing in its entire history happened to EPS! In January 2015 we were honored to have Mr Umar Jaffar as our fulltime Director. Under his leadership, Eastern Public School is now poised to scale greater heights and take a leadership role in the community of IB schools.

The website visitors must also have a visual experience of this wonderful journey by clicking the folder “A Decade of EPS” in our picture gallery.

In more than a decade of EPS journey, only one thing remained constant. In 2003, the motto of the school was “Excellence through value-driven education”, and this is something that remains true today as well.
