Mohan is a Founder Member and a Trustee of the Indian High School which became the shining star among Indian Schools with approximately 13,000 students receiving education. In 2009 Mohan become the Chairman of the Indian High School.
Having achieved the distinction of the best Indian School in the world for e-learning, the Board of CBSE in New Delhi decided to launch the CBSE International curriculum from the premises of The Indian High School. Hon’ble Minister of Education in India, Mr. Kapil Sibal personally inaugurated the CBSE International Curriculum for 30 Indian Schools in the Gulf and was highly impressed with the activities and the overall achievements of The Indian High School Dubai under Mohan’s leadership as an honorary chairman.
In 2009, Mohan launched an ambitious AED 100 million school project in Dubai Silicon Oasis which was completed in record time by 2011. According to Mohan, the new school facility was one of the best in the world and catered to the ever growing demand for quality education by the Indian community in Dubai. The new facility, designed to cater to an additional 3,500 students was the first school in the Gulf to offer the ‘CBSE International Curriculum’ approved by the Government of India.
A thoughtful and important addition to the new school facility was the generously designed wing dedicated exclusively to children with special needs with specially trained teachers to look after them and their learning needs.
Mohan believed that a proud moment in 2011 for the school was when the Indian High School received recognition from the Knowledge Human Development Authority (KHDA) of U.A.E by being ranked in the "Outstanding" category of schools (of which there are only a few) and being regarded as a "well led school".
The Indian High School is run by a Trust which is “Not for Profit” and Mohan took pride in emphasising this fact during discussions with authorities, parents, students, educationists and government representatives. Mohan believed that being ‘not for profit’ ensured that the education provided to students remained affordable without sacrificing on quality.
