J.B. Petit High School for Girls Maharashtra
J.B. Petit High School is a private all-girls school in Fort, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India established in 1865. It is arguably the most well known and reputed all-girls academy in Mumbai. The school currently offers the ICSE board.
It was later renamed the ‘Frere Fletcher School’. In 1965 the school was sought to be merged with the Cathedral Girls School when Mr. Jehangir Bomanji Petit took over the schools administration. Although established and run by members of the Zoroastrian community, Mr. Petit wanted to ensure that the school maintained its cosmopolitan and diverse character. The ‘J.B. Petit High School for Girls’ as it came to be called after its savior, still maintains this cosmopolitan nature today. In 1973 the school came under the leadership of principal Shirin Darasha who brought to the school a zeal for drama and the arts that is still prevalent today as well as progressive ideas and methods of education.
