University Model School is a leading institution for girls throughout the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. It enjoys a place of pride in all the schools of the country.

It was raised to this status from a JUNIOR MODEL SCHOOL on November 1st 1955 to meet the long felt need of an institution, imparting training and instruction on modern lines to school’s children on the campus of the University of Peshawar.

All the credit goes to Mrs. Iffat Almas who not only founded the school but also elevated its level in 1963 to the prestigious girls high school from scratch and got it recognized by the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Peshawar in January 1967.

The school has won laurels under the able and dynamic leadership of its successive Principals after Mrs. Iffat Almas. It is all due to their sincere efforts, missionary zeal, full devotion and sustainable endeavor in the field of academics and administration that other sister institution feel honored to emulate it.

The students of University Model School by the grace of Almighty Allah have always maintained its glorious tradition of showing excellent results in the S.S.C examination in The Board of Intermediate & Secondary Education, Peshawar.
