Location and demography

The Shimla Hills have one of the best climates in the country. The weather is relatively cool all through the year. The temperatures vary from 0 –20 degrees Centigrade in winter and 10-30 degrees Centigrade in summer. Monsoons hit the region during July and August. As the winter months of January and February tend to be quite cold, we close for our winter vacation during these months.

The school is surrounded by the grove of pine trees on the main Shimla-Kaza National Highway (NH-22), at Theog. There are apple orchards around the school.
