The dignitaries that were responsible were Khwaja Khazer Joo Agoo, Syed Amirullah, Pir Saifudin, Khwaja Nasrullah Haf, Khwaja Ghulam Rasool Kripak, Abdul Subhan Agoo, Ghulam Rasool Kamgar, etc. Mr. Nandlal was the first Head Master of the school. The school runs by private donations and government funds.
In 1943, the school was upgraded from Primary to Middle School. The new head master was Mr. Noor Din. Then in 1967, it was upgraded again to High School. From 1946-1986, Mr. Ghulam Rasool Hamal was the Head Master. He dedicated his life to educate children of Kishtwar. Many of his students that have graduated from the school are famous Doctors, Engineers, Professors, and etc. He is respected in the field and around the town. Another teacher, Mr. Ghulam Rasool Dar, has dedicated his 35 years of his life. In 1980, Mr. Abdul Wahid Kripak and Mr. Abdul Kabir Kripak added a new building for the school.and renovated the old building.
Many students have come back and served for the school. Few are teachers and few help run the school in the management. One of such person was Late Mr. Bashir A. Kichloo. He served as a Cabinet Minister for the Jammu & Kashmir. As a Chairman of the Auqaf Islamia, he worked hard to improve the school. He renovated the whole building and added separate building for the girls. He also added science laboratories, computer room and Library for the new generation of Kishtwar. Because of his dedication and hard work, this building is one of the best in the town. When you enter in the school, you can see the difference he has made to the school. For this and many reasons he will be missed.
Every year during the month of November 10-12, there is a celebration where the students perform for the dignitaries and alumni of the Kishtwar. The school proudly celebrated its 95th anniversary in 2000.
I started my studies in this school in 1980 as a 6th grader. I wanted to fulfill my maternal grandfathers (Mr. Sanaullah Rathore) dream. He had also dedicated his life as a teacher in this school. I exceeded in my studies as well as learned Islamic teachings. I also took part in the cultural events. I graduated in 1985. I then went to further my education in government higher secondary school in Kishtwar. After that I went to Jammu College for further studies. I would like to say thanks to few of my teachers who helped me achieve my goals. They are Mr. Ghulam Rasool Hamal, Master Lashman Das, Mr. Mohd. Abdullah Malik, Mr. Chunni Lal Goswami, Mr. Ghulam Rasool Dar, Mr. Abdul Rashid Sheikh, Mr. Ghulam Nabi Gundana, Mulana Abdul Bari, and Mr. Sri Krishan.
Few of my dearest friends that had graduated with me from Islamia Fraidia School were Syed Arif Hussain, Wasim Bashir Dev, Khalid Abas Munshi, Tariq Masood Sheikh, Farooq Ahmad Kandoo, Gulam Haider Sheikh, Abu-Lais Gagroo, Ishtaq Husain Waza, Sajad Hussain Ahanger, Sajad Ahmad Malik, Wasim Ahmad, Shafqat Hafiz Munshi, Ibrar Ahmad Moghal,Haq Nawaz Sheikh,Mohd.Iqbal Rangraze,Ajaz Ahmad Kichloo, Shabir Ahmad Dar, etc. Most of these friends have become professionals and are well settled in their lives. I will always remember them and cherish the moments that we had spent at Islamia Fariadia School.

It was the regime of Maharaja Partap Singh as the Principality had been conquered by Maharaja Gulab Singh in the year 1821 A.D who had reduced the principality into Zila and subsequently into Tehsil by annexing the territory of Kishtwar and Ramban with Udhampur District. As the Kishtwar was drought prone from the very beginning, so the management had to face difficulties for running the affairs of the Primary School. But the people of time did not lose their hearts and faced the obstructions bravely. In spite of limited sources available, it was a fact that the management managed to run the affairs of school successfully by the grace of Almighty and with the Benevolence of Hazrat Shah Mohammad Fared-ud-Din Baghdadi (RET). In the beginning, the teaching staff included Ghulam Haider Shah, Mohammad Akram Sialcoty now in Pakistan, Mohammad Abdullah Butt, Ghulam Haider Gagroo, Nand Lal, Thakur Boop Ram, Anant Ram with the help of many other educated personalities of that time. Anjuman progressed by leaps and bounds. With the courage of the management and help of the poor people of the area, at last the primary school of Anjuman was upgraded to Middle standard in the year 1968 and was led by Chowdhary Noor Din of Dool Kishtwar, who had successfully graduated himself from Punjab University. After Chouwdhary Noor Din, the school was led by Syed Lutfullah Udhanpuri for some time and then Kh. Ghulam Rasool Hamal took over the charge as Headmaster of the Middle School. He worked hard and got the Middle School Upgraded to High school standard. After his retirement at the age of Sixty, the first badge of school students who successfully graduated themselves from Jammu University after passing the basic education from this very school took over the charge of school among those are Tahir Hussain Hap and Shahid Hussain Lone . After the death of Kh. Kazar Joo Agoo, the charge of the management was held by his son Kh. Abdul Subhan agoo from 1941 up to 1972 and later onwards by various Administrators appointed by the Government after Auqaf Act was passed by Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly which includes the great political leader of the J & K State Late Alhaj Bashir Ahmed Kichloo and presently the charge of management is being held by his elder son Kh.
