Drona International Academy is a public service oriented, non-profit organization, with the Chairperson of the Abaani Group serving as the Manager .
The Mission of the School is to provide the right inputs to help the children grow up into caring and sharing individuals, equipped to make the right choices in life & grow up to be responsible citizens of the country & the world.
The school's motto ‘Knowledge! Inspiration ! Discovery' is the cornerstone around which the character and personality of every child is built. The Society visualizes an educational system based on the four basic tenets : universal values, excellence in all things, global understanding by viewing diversity as an asset, and service to humanity.
To provide cost-free quality education to the children of economically challenged families who have high intelligence and skills but not the opportunity to explore and expand them to build a secure life.
To recognize and enable such students to reach at definite stature in their chosen fields.
To facilitate the students’ progress in academics as well as co-curricular activities. To undertake special initiatives in order to reach out to every student admitted, in order to bring out the best in them.
To be recognized as a school with a distinction, providing education to enable young children to become high achievers in chosen fields and responsible citizens, thus leading to man-making and nation-building.
To develop a global mindset that can build unique capabilities which will transcend cultures in order to create value for self and society.
“The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with existence”.
At DRONA we are committed to providing a safe and secure learning environment to enable our children to develop skills that will help them be caring, confident and responsible global citizens. As Principal of DRONA I believe in the power of the young minds to make a change. It is with this belief and faith that we endeavor to inculcate in our children values of empathy, responsibility, humanity and the passion to believe in their dreams.
DRONA provides a platform for the young minds to discover themselves and make choices for the future. As an exclusive school our dedicated team of teachers support children through their challenges and help each one reach their potential. We believe in “No child being left behind” and work with determination to achieve this aim.
At DRONA children learn to be tolerant, supportive and accepting of differences in abilities and beliefs. These values will take them beyond the narrow definitions of success and achievement. As the world moves towards unsafe and unsettled times we will continue to provide to our students lessons in the kindness, courage and generosity of the human race and its ability to reconstruct and rebuild. Frequent and focused workshops both for teachers and students ensure that we stay abreast of the latest research in field of education.
We hope that our children will be the artists, musicians and diplomats who will strive to bring peace to this world, the environmentalists who will work to reverse climate change and doctors who will eradicate.
We are a school community that firmly believes in this partnership between students, teachers and parents and works with consensus, transparency and accountability. We look forward to their continued support as DRONA continues to develop and grow as a centre of excellence. .

Nourishing the young minds
As the academic year advances, I am vastly reassured by Drona International Academy’s success in fruitfully shaping up students’ lives. It is heartening to see that the students are growing constantly and sturdily. I congratulate the teachers and every members of the school in bringing out a perfect blend of academic excellence along with overall development in every student of the school.
I am delighted that DIA provides a balanced environment focused on shaping children into the leaders of tomorrow by offering comprehensive education through a developmental approach; by promoting discipline, freedom of thought and expression, a love for learning, a connection to the world beyond classroom and a sense of social responsibility. It encourages each child’s efforts, hard work, perseverance and good will to accomplish personal hopes and dreams for the benefit of the nation.
“Upon the subject of Education ….. I can only say the I view it as the most important subject which we as a people may be engaged in .” Abraham Lincoln
Having quoted Sir Lincoln, I sincerely urge the students that belief in oneself is the ultimate key to success. If failure ever struck, they must never feel demoralised and despondent. Rather they should learn from it and become perfect, loyal and above all persistent in their efforts of building a secured and a flourishing future.
Look forward and march ahead with new zeal, hope and quest for knowledge.
