A dream, a need and a bold initiative that began 38 years ago - Alpha English Higher
Secondary School which was established by a group of far sighted people in the year 1982 as
the first Kindergarten English School in the District has been through many ups and downs,
yet, surely and steadily has grown from strength to strength, and is now catering to about 2000
students from different parts of the District, the State and other states of the country as well.
The main objective of the Alpha Educational Trust is to impart quality education, and set up a
strong value system in the young minds. We have a big part to play in initiating, monitoring
and guiding new English Medium Schools, which are set up in many different parts of the
district. It is our desire to empower the children in this area by setting a strong foundation
with real knowledge, and gearing them towards a wholesome growth.
With an aim of making a difference in the educational scenario in the rural areas, even with
the lack of proper infrastructure and monetary fund, the Alpha Educational Trust tries its best
to provide the basic facilities in making the learning situation conducive for the children in
school from time to time. It has always been our priority to guide the students to develop
scientific attitude, problem-solving, participation and achievement not neglecting to inculcate
high-value and good character formation.
The school was upgraded gradually to the Higher Secondary School Level in Science and
Arts Streams during 2004 and 2006 respectively. The Commerce Stream was started in 2009,
with the opening permission from the Directorate of Higher & Technical Education and
affiliation & recognition from MBOSE Tura.
With the dedicated service of our teachers - putting your hands and hearts together at all times;
the support of our parents; the efficiency of the Management Committee Members, and above
all the guidance of God Almighty at every step of the way; it has enabled us to reach this
level of achievement.
"Education is not preparation for life, Education is life itself." - John Dewey
The Higher Secondary Section of the School was founded in June, 2004 where we started up with the
Science Stream. We believe that all children should have access to an appropriate education that affords
them the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We aim to bring about a sense of community and
belonging among pupils, parents and staff. We also aim to prepare the pupils for the responsibilities
and opportunities that arise throughout life in a multicultural and technological society; and to develop
constructive attitudes and a capacity for enjoyment through spiritual and aesthetic appreciation, and
foster respect for the environment.
In order to achieve these aims, we provide a curriculum based on the Meghalaya Board of School
Education syllabus which is broad, balanced and which develops pupils’ knowledge, skills and
understanding through learning programmes and experiences provided by the school which are
appropriate to their age and abilities.
It is widely agreed that there is no place like a private school to obtain a superior quality education,
and our original educational method is well-received. The Combination of both homely warmth and
strict discipline in our school community, brings about a mutual respect-relationship between teachers
while enhancing students’ character development. Together we will see learning as a life-long task
and our combined goal will be to equip students with all the necessary skills to succeed in a changing
Parents are the major contributors in our endeavour. As parents, we need you to develop a close rapport
with the school and the teachers, in order to smooth the ups and downs in the child’s development. Let
us all contribute to the all round development of the child and be enriched with learning experiences.
We encourage parent’s active participation, feedback, so that together we can create wonderful
children. Let us not expect anything in return for our service, because there is greater pleasure in
giving than in receiving.
As I look beyond the horizon, I envision Alpha as a second home where education leads to educating
the child. With God’s guidance, I dream of seeing Alpha grow into a College in the near future. And
I strongly believe that under our guidance the students will have a niche in their personality. The
grooming of every child to compete the world has always been our prime concern. To achieve our goal
we require a positive approach from the parents because they help us to recognise the inborn talents
of their child, so that, we together can shoulder to push the wheel of success and glory for every child
of Alpha School.
We restrict ourselves to a bounded community of students and ensure the screening of those coming to Alpha so as to create a beautiful, secured and friendly environment within the boundaries of the School.
It is our desire that students .leave Alpha as literate, numerate, well educated citizens who have the capability, confidence and independence to make a positive contribution to our society.
