Alborz High School (Persian: دبیرستان ماندگار البرز) is a college-preparatory gifted high school located in the heart of Tehran, Iran. It is one of the first modern high schools in Asia and the Middle East, named after the Alborz mountain range, north of Tehran. Its place in the shaping of Iran's intellectual elite compares with that of Eton College in England and institutions such as Phillips Academy, Phillips Exeter Academy, and Milton Academy in the United States.

History

The school was founded as an elementary school in 1873 by a group of American Presbyterian missionaries led by James Bassett. This was in the 26th year of the reign of Nasereddin Shah Qajar, 22 years after Amir Kabir founded the Dar ul-Funun school in Tehran, and 33 years before the Constitutional Revolution in Persia (as it was known back then; later it became "Iran" during the Reza Shah Era).

When Dr. Samuel Jordan arrived in Persia in 1898, he instituted change; subsequently, Alborz became a 12-year elementary and secondary school, with its share of college courses. Thereafter, the institution came to be known as the American College of Tehran.

Dr. Jordan remained president of Alborz for 42 years (1899–1940). During his tenure, Alborz grew from an elementary school to a high school and college.

In 1932, the school received a permanent charter from the Board of Regents of the State University of New York.

In 1940 and during World War II, by the order of Shah Reza Pahlavi, Alborz was removed from American management and placed under the auspices of the Iranian Ministry of Education as part of Reza Shah's modernization reforms. The school's name was changed from "College" back to "Alborz", and it was reinstated as a high school.

In 1944, Professor Mohammad Ali Mojtahedi, member of University of Tehran's faculty, was appointed as the president of Alborz.

Mandegar Title

In Iran, schools and educational centers that have been operating for more than 80 years and have good records of educating students are granted the Mandegar prefix (Persian: ماندگار, meaning: lasting) by the Iran Ministry of Education. Mandegar prefix was granted to Alborz High School in 2006 according to the conditions set by the IRI Ministry of Education.

Structure

Alborz High School is a public school and is managed by a special board of directors that includes the heads of the IRI Ministry of Education and the head of the Education, Research and Technology Commission of the IRI Council along with number of other officials of Iran.

Alborz High School has 4 majors: Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Physics, Humanities and Literature, and Humanities and Theology at the high school level. Each field has a different building with experienced high-ranking teachers and supervisors who specialize in educational goals.

Foundation

Booklet of Elmialborz Laws First handwrite edition

In November 2017, after completing the writing of the Law of the Science Group of Alborz at the monthly meeting of the members of the Alborz Student Council, the scientific committee of the Student Council officially announced the start of the activity of this group.

Independence

At the beginning of 2019, i.e. about a year after its establishment, with the approval of the Alborz Student Council, the Alborz Scientific Committee became independent from this council and started working together with the higher scientific committee of the school and the Alborz Scientific Group, and thus the activity of this group became stronger.

After the dissolution of the middle school

After the dissolution of the first secondary school (middle school) of Alborz High School and this action coincided with the corona pandemic, this group was drastically reduced. This was when the members of the leadership group of this group made a new decision: to join the student scientific committee to the higher scientific committee and to transform the group into a professional structure.

This turned a small group into a free educational institution for the public, and through the association of the Higher Scientific Committee, it was able to establish connections with other schools and institutions in other cities and provinces.
