(Founder & Principal)
In developing a culture for learning!
MBRS follows the International Model for Schooling with its four elements of Universal Values. Excellence in All Things. Global Understanding and Service to Community.
These 4 elements for 21C learning is achieved by an approach where teaching is not teacher but student centric with focus towards making the child self directed through building qualities of responsibility. engagement and accountability.
The pedagogy is taught not to confine their teaching within the four walls of the classroom but extend and connect it to the outside world of experiential. expeditional and real life learning. To enable this a teacher is made to develop a repertoire of teaching tools. techniques and strategies.
We strive to meet these ingredients by a comprehensive initiative which we call the Principal’s Whole School Improvement program emphasizing the following three broad areas:
– Raising Academic Excellence
– Improving Behavioural Standards
– Teacher Enrichment and Assessments
As a Head I believe in the immense potential of every child which can be realized when we envision our roles as an instructional leader where the three components of the instructional core -Teacher. Content & Student: is in constant interaction with one another.

Inception and Funding of the Miles Bronson Residential School, Guwahati.
Dr Nripen Dutta founded the Miles Bronson Residential School in 1987 with only 17 students in a rented house. With surging demand of students and the need for more space, our School was shifted to Beltola in 1990 with 98 students. Initially it started functioning with two buildings, but extended to include nine buildings all under lease or rent. In the next 10 years, the student capacity increased remarkably in between 1990-2002 and it stood at 240 resident students. In 2002, MBRS shifted to its permanent complex at Borjhar. The students intake capacity has swelled to its maximum present intake capacity.
Since then the School has grown rapidly and has now established in its own premises with permanent complex over a sprawling campus of 28 acres of land, providing all facilities for quality education. Our school which is the only purely boarding English Medium School in the city, now has a full capacity of 547 boarders coming from different parts of the North East. In addition it houses another 400 teaching, non-teaching and support staff.
