Brief Background on the Institute:

The present school is an offshoot of the erstwhile Paro High School, which had to be located to a new site after a dreadful landslide hit present Paro LSS in 1986, causing a major damage to the infrastructure. This is a product of a close partnership between the Royal Government and the British Government. The foundation stone for the construction work of the school was laid in December 1991 and most of the work completed by 1994.

The school was inaugurated on April 7, 1994 by the then British High Commissioner of India, Sir Nicholas Fenn in the presence of high-ranking government officers of the RGoB. The school was named Drukgyel High School on the 7th of April, 1994.The first Principal Ms. Namgay Om started the school with 399 students and 29 teachers.
