Around the late nineties, many of us felt the necessity of quality English Medium School in Chittagong inflicting our cultural heritage alongside maintaining moral values. Days gone by, we did not have any reflection of it in the true sense of the term. However, in mid July 1997, a team of five green but energised promising university graduates Firoz Chowdhury, Hafizur Rahman, Imam Hasan Reza Lincoln, Jasim Uddin and Mizanur Rahman endeavoured a combined effort to launch a unique English medium school with a noble objective of creating eligible and patriotic citizens through the careful nourishment of Bangladeshi tradition and culture. The Masterminds of PIS will always be remembered distinctly.
Our first session commenced on January 02, 1998 with 15 committed teachers and 56 students. Mrs. Hasnat Rajia Begum, former Vice Principal of Women’s College, Chittagong was the first Principal. She was taken over by, Lt. Col (Rtd.) Md. Ziauddin, Bir Uttam, the valiant freedom fighter in 1999 who embellished Presidency as the 2nd Principal and has been leading us till today. To add momentum to the competitive and accelerating the activities of the school, we got amidst us Professor E. U. M Intekhab as the Vice Principal in 2011.
We owned affiliation with the Cambridge International Examination (CIE) in 2003 and our centre no. is BD 205. The first batch of ‘O’, ‘AS’ and A’ Level appeared at the exams in 2005, 2009 and 2010 respectively. Our students not only proved their distinction in the exams but also brought us prestigious status achieving country highest in many subjects.
At present, the Presidency feels proud of having a good number of students and 150 teachers in its own spacious A’ Level campus at Panchlaish and Junior campus at Katalgonj, Chittagong.
By the grace of the Almighty Allah, Presidency has already cased ‘an era of glory’. Presidency has passed seventeen successful academic sessions which have embellished the institution with a remarkable and distinct position among the topmost English medium schools in the country. In this auspicious moment, we express our gratitude to the Almighty Allah, the most beneficent and the most merciful. With much thankfulness, we remember the contribution of ‘Five Initiators’. We gladly recall the dedication of our learned Teachers. Presidency family is very much thankful to all other Founder Members, our valuable parents and guardians, most precious jewels, our staff and above all well wishers for giving us plethora of inspirations in our journey towards achieving the long cherished desire we dreamt of.
Our vision is nothing but to create a generation globally competent enough to face the challenges of the 21st century. For this,we are sanguine, all concerned will be with us in the days to come.
