ISPS Dharamsala was founded by Shri Mataji in 1990. Starting with only 30 pupils, the school now has nearly 250 students, from Class 1 (6 year olds) to Class 10 (15 year olds). There are about 65 international teaching, dormitory and administration staff, who live on-site in a spectacular setting below the 5,000 metre peaks of the Dhawalgiri Himalayas.
The school is constantly changing and developing - and with a number of new building projects, a refreshed syllabus, and a new emphasis on creative learning and extra curricular activities, this is an exciting time to join this great project.
For the 2007 session, which runs from the end of March, after Birthday Puja, to Christmas Puja, the position of the ISPS School Principal is still vacant:

- Desire to live in a large Sahaja collective and to form part of the staff team that underpins everything the school stands for.
- A loving, caring and 100% Sahaja approach to living and working with children and adults.
What you gain from the experience of working at Dharamsala will of course depend on you - but if you are ready for what may genuinely be the experience of a lifetime, if you wish to help realize Shri Mataji's vision for all that this unique place can be, and what we Her children can achieve here, and if you have the stomach for the 12 hour bus journey from Delhi, then the school is ready to welcome you with open arms.
