Imamia High School, Zadibal


Imamia High School is a not for profit Trust and one of the earliest education institutes in the valley of Jammu & Kashmir. Founded in 1910 (although some documents suggest year of establishment as 1890) by late Agha Syed Hussain Shah Jalali, an educationist, political activist and a philanthropist, this school was among the first few educational institutes to impart modern education in the valley with a purpose of providing better education for the children in economically down trodden families, whose talents never see the light of day. The school is accredited up to 10th grade with two additional branches in Baramulla district, which were closed in late 1950’s due to lack of financial support.

Some of the prominent names in the valley have attended the school the Imamia High School. They include Sheikh Rashid (MLA), Mohd Syed Qureshi, IAS (Chairman J&K Bank), Tafazul Hussain Alamgeer (Executive President J&K Bank), Syed Afzal Shah Jalali (Political Activist), Khwaja Mohiudin Wani (Founder Suffering Moses), Mahmood Qureshi (Supt. Jails, Srinagar), and many others.
