College is one of the few educational institutions of the country that were
able to spread education among all the sections of the students of our society.
Many of us including the students & teachers do not know the real story of
the birth of this institution. This is because the inception of this school is
a bit different compared to others. University Laboratory School
The seed of this school was sown in March, 1964 with the KG and Class One which has, now with the passage of time, become a vast tree. In order to introduce higher training in the education sector, an accord was concluded between the then
government and the Pakistan of
the Colorado State University for
establishing the U.S.A. and
Research (IER). In the western part of the IER building, Mrs. Gunning, an
American teacher, started the working of this school which paved the way to
operate the Teachers' Training Programme of the IER. Then in April, 1965 the
school was raised from KG to Class V as a primary school. The 'Home Room'
activities were started from this year. An American consultant and supervisor
named Edgar E. Fielder, was in the overall responsibility of the school. Institute of Education

Mr Fielder continued his service upto 1965. Three other dedicated personalities were there to assist him. They were Mrs. Gunning, Dr. Jackofron and Dr. Ottis Coffey. Actually the school had its palmy days from 1965 to 1969 because of combined co-operation and selfless love of all for the institution.
The steady and conspicuous progress has brought the school to present glorious name and fame. The S.S.C examinees of this school took part in the public examination for the first time in 1971. One of them secured his position in the national merit list. The college section was opened in July 1975 and the students appeared in the H.S.C examination in 1977 for the first time.
