The initiative for the school’s physical infrastructure came from Dr. Mongoldhoj Tulachan, President of the Padma Sambhav Charity Foundation who led the collection of funds. However, All operational expenses are covered through donations, highlighting the community’s support of this school.

This school was established in 2010 to support economically disadvantaged students, and after that, the school has consistently achieved remarkable success, with students excelling in the Secondary Education Examination (SEE). The curriculum, taught through Nepali, English, and Tibetan textbooks, aligns with the official government curriculum, providing a well-rounded education.
