The Vishwa Bharati Higher Secondary was founded in 1951 and it happens to be the oldest school in the valley of Kashmir. Jihadi terrorists put the school ablaze in 1990. Now it is managed by trustees. Main Trustee is a Hindu, but most of the students, girls and boys, and the Principal, are Muslims.
