Dharamsala being the seat of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government in exile, it has a sizeable number of Tibetan population concentrated mainly in McLeod Ganj area. In 1966, Mr. Chokteng Kalsang, a retired Tibetan government civil service staff (tsidrung) started a day school on a small plot of land owned by TCV as it was difficult for the younger children to walk the distance to the main TCV school. Later in 1972, TCV took over the responsibility of running the school.

Today, the school has the capacity for 180 children from classes from I to V and thereafter the children attends the main TCV school for continuation of their schooling as day scholars.
