A fully residential school,the students and staff live and work together on our 40 -acre campus located on the foothills of the spectacular Shivalik Hills.
Ecole Globale was founded by Mr Amarjeet Juneja under the umbrella of the Asian Educational Charitable Trust, which also runs the hugely successful , The Asian School in Dehradun, a co-educational, day and boarding school that has been Alma Mater to several generations of successful scholars, from within the vicinity of Dehradun and other far-flung cities in India and abroad.
This heritage continues today in Ecole Globale’s commitment to values of excellence, personal responsibility and service, and in our special mission to educate the girl child , to empower her to face the vicissitudes that life will hold for them with grace and courage— a purpose to which we are wholly committed to.
To empower girls to discover their intellectual, creative and physical potential to embrace the 21st century.
The Mission In keeping with our vision that traditional schooling is not enough for the development of a 21st century learner, we have tailored our curriculum to nurture our girls to conduct themselves with grace and equanimity in any given situation. We create an environment conducive to learning that hones the innate talents of our girls, making innovative use of technology to support independent learning in and beyond the classroom.
As the Director of Ecole Globale International Girls School, it is a unique opportunity for me to communicate to with you through this medium.
We at Ecole endeavour to build responsible, global citizens through a widely accepted curriculum and principles based learning. The ethos of Ecole is characterized by its enthusiasm, energy, positivism and vibrancy.

The schools emphasis is on molding students into intellectually brilliant, ethically sound, emotional mature and physically fit students.

‘Have you ever been at sea in a dense fog, when it seemed as if a tangible white darkness shut you in and the great ship, tense and anxious, groped her way toward the shore with plummet and sounding-line, and you waited with beating heart for something to happen? I was like that ship before my education began, only I was without compass or sounding line, and no way of knowing how near the harbor was. "Light! Give me light!" was the wordless cry of my soul, and the light of love shone on me in that very hour.’ Helen Keller
These poignant words of Helen Keller convey the passion for learning, the quest for education, the zeal for empowerment that embodies the heart of every child who enters the portals of our school. At Ecole, there is self–discovery through achievement, self-understanding and appreciation. The holistic development in the congenial and caring environs of our campus, bring each innocent heart closer in a melodious song of universality. Academic excellence is a must-do on our priority list, while we encompass the core with a strong value system that shall sustain these young girls in the journey of their lives. We strengthen their foundations with the bulwark of our Indian culture and tradition but teach them to embrace progressive changes with an open, yet, discerning mind.
In its 6th year, the institution has grown from strength to strength to mark an echelon height of enviable reputation in the educational fraternity. Armed with the core values of truth, integrity and compassion, our Ecoliers shall explore the zeniths of creativity, through their dreams to fulfill them with patience, perseverance and principle. We envisage the continuing growth of our school as a visionary among contemporaries for its unique character of blending tradition with modernity to crystallise the essence of the global Indian.
Equipped with state of the art learning and sports facilities, led from the forefront by a team of committed professionals, there is a resonating chord of joie-de- vivre in the community at Ecole as we work from term to term and spend time with each other, all lifelong learners.
