Respected Shri H. B. Kapadia Saheb pioneered the foundation of The H. B. Kapadia New High School in the year 1956 at Shahibaug, Ahmedabad. He is revered not only as a great academician, but also as an efficient administrator and a brilliant organizer. Hailing from the small town of Khambhat and after a brief stint as an English teacher at the Proprietary High School, he established The H. B. Kapadia New High School and was distinctively recognized as a genius in the English subject and a very capable Principal. His zeal and quest of imparting education through selfless devotion and dedication shall be cherished and fondly remembered by innumerable students, parents and teachers till eternity.
The noble tradition, legacy established by the honorable founder of the school Shri H. B. Kapadia Saheb was earnestly carried forward by his son Respected Shri N. H. Kapadia Saheb. He kept the flame of learning that was lit by the establishment of The H. B. Kapadia New High School aglow after the demise of Shri H. B. Kapadia Saheb, with the same sincerity, dedication and efficiency. 'Like Father, Like Son'–he had very aptly proved this saying through his administrative ability as a Principal and with a profound knowledge of the English subject. Every progressive year rekindles the memory of his contribution and commitment towards the progress of The H. B. Kapadia New High School.
