We, a number of educationists, had been discussing for a long time about the establishment of an educational institution of international standard. Among us, some have worked and are still working in the universities and the others have worked at renowned colleges and cadet colleges as Professors & Principals. In the light of our long experience, we have perceived that our children, in spite of being meritorious and securing good results, cannot attain the expected result in their practical life. This is because our students/children are in the grip of excessive coyness, they are introvert: they know but cannot express their thoughts. Moreover, having continued their education in Bangla medium, most of the students remain weak in writing and speaking English. As a result, when they go abroad for higher studies, they fall in deep water. Even in our own country, they fail to get a good job in the multinational companies.
On the other hand our students with British Education system i.e. after passing O level & A level face a great hardship for their admission in the BUET, Public Universities, Medical Colleges etc. These students have segregated themselves from our age old tradition & custom in respect of dress, way of life, food habits etc. This is mainly due to British curriculum followed at O & A level exam where our students are taught British culture, heritage & tradition. They learn British history, geography, economy, way of life etc but not those of Bangladesh .
Under the circumstances, for the implementation of our long contemplation and experience, we established an ideal institution namely “ Milestone College ” in the year 2001 at Gareeb-e-Newaz Avenue in Sector -11 of Uttara Model Town , Dhaka . It has both English & Bengali Medium Sections. This is our own building & it is now used as our Headquarters. In addition to this we have now 07 campuses at different sectors of Uttara Model Town, Dhaka.
