Colonel Maqbul Haider, the then Director (Communication) of BGB, played a pioneer role in the foundation of this institution. The Director General of Bangladesh Rifles of that time Major General R A M Golam Muktadir’s positive attitude helped Bangladesh Rifles High School start its journey
At the outset the number of students was only 150, while the number of teachers was only 8 including the Headmaster and the Assistant Headmaster. It is needless to say that there was no infrastructure that can be mentioned here.
