Dedicated to the field of education, Mrs. Deena M. Mistri has served the glorious Bai Virbaijee Soparivala Parsi High School for 55 years. She started teaching English to the secondary classes at the B.V.S. in 1951. She was the first lady teacher to teach the secondary classes during those days. Her contribution to the field of education and hard work, accounts for thousands of students with reputed names, in their respective professions - who were once her dear students.

Mrs. Mistri finished her B.A. (Hons.) from the Bombay University in 1945. Finished her Bachelors in Education Mrs. Mistri finished her B.A. (Hons.) from the Bombay University in 1945.
while she was teaching at the B.V.S. She proceeded to the United States on her Fulbright Scholarship in 1962, securing her Diploma in Education. In America she taught at the University of Athens - Ohio and University of Austin - Texas. She and the other teachers were invited to the Rose Garden at the White House, where President John F. Kennedy greeted them. This was a very memorable experience for Mrs. Mistri as it was a year before President Kennedy was assassinated.

On her way back from the States she was invited by the British Council to observe the British teaching system in London. Observing the American and British teaching systems was an invaluable experience for her career at the B.V.S.

After 21 years of dedicated service, she became the Principal of the B.V.S. in 1972. The school is known for its discipline and imparts an education system by teaching "values" to its students. B.V.S. is one of the most sought after schools in Karachi. The Government of Education - Sind, rated B.V.S. "The Best Private Boys School for the Millennium".

During her tenure as a Principal B.V.S. secured 100% results in the Science and General Groups. With almost 99% of students securing A grade. This credit does not go only go her, but to her dedicated staff that work very hard to achieve such fantastic results.

Mrs. Mistri dedicated her life to the school. One of the main personal reasons is that she is the great grand daughter of the founder and has carried on the noble cause of education that was started by her forefathers.

Mrs. Mistri was awarded the "Pride of Performance" by the President of Pakistan - General Pervez Musharraf on 23rd Mach 2002 for the invaluable contribution she has rendered towards providing quality education in Pakistan.
