Atomic Energy Central School-1, Hyderabad, ‘The Radiant Star' in the Eastern horizon of the city, lies in close vicinity of the two gigantic DAE Units, viz. ECIL & NFC. The school was setup under the aegis of the Atomic Energy Education Society (Regd.) Bombay, in response to the representation made by the then employees of the DAE Units, residing at Pattigadda in Hyderabad. Thus, AECS – Hyderabad, made its humble beginning on the FOURTH of NOVEMBER, 1970, in two residential blocks of the Scenic DAE colony, encircled by the kaleidoscopic landscape of the great historical MOULA-ALI hillocks amidst the then budding Industrial Units, monopolised by the parallel DAE Plants.
