About School

Situated in Mumbai’s bustling Fort area on Maharshi Dadhichi Marg, the J. B. Petit High School for Girls has had a chequered but fascinating history.

Established in 1860 by a selfless, dynamic Englishwoman, the school was originally known as Miss Prescott’s Fort Christian School. Thanks to munificent donations from city philanthropists, among them the distinguished businessman, Premchand Roychand, it was later renamed the Frere Fletcher School.
This spirit of inclusiveness has become a credo at the J. B. Petit High School for Girls, as it came to be called after the man who gave it a new lease of life. As essential today as at the time it was conceived, the school’s non-communal ethic ensures that children of all communities grow and learn together in a spirit of cooperation and harmony. Through the following decades, and under the able guidance and leadership of dynamic Principals, the school has flourished and continues to maintain its high standards in education.

The school is dedicated to academic excellence and quality instruction while recognizing the uniqueness of each child. Our curriculum is vibrant and challenging, and constantly evolving to meet the needs of students. Our educational programmes help students to become flexible thinkers who are able to question, adapt and creatively meet the demands of the future.

Our school motto, ‘Ever Forward’ exemplifies the school ethic.
