Towards a better future ECI Chalet Day school is situated in the heart of the town opposite to the Shimla Club between the lift and the road leading to Chotta Shimla. In 1909, the told chalet was demolished and replaced by a large modern building in which club dances were held on Tuesdays and Fridays during the time of the British. During the Second World Warthe Chalet was used as an office.

After that it housed the junior wing of the Loretto Convent in 1982, the premises was taken over by the ECI Chalet Days school. D F Das was the founder principal of this school, and the school flourished under her leadership till she retired in April 1998. The school is a recognised unaided co-educational, Christian school. It operates under the direction, control and guidance of Rt Rev Dr Ezra Sargunnam, Bishop, President, Evangelical Church of India, through the management board of ECI Chalet day school.

The present principal B Rathour took over the reigns from Das and has efficiently steered the school since then. A day-scholar's school it caters to the students from nursery till standard VIII. The school, till 1999, used to run in -two shifts, now it runs in one shift. The school at present has about 650 students on its rolls with children from all strate of society welcomed without any discrimination. There are 28 well-qualified teachers and efficient staff. The school also has a house system. At theChalet Day school curricular co-curricular activities run along with academic subjects. While a lot of stress is laid on the syllabi, written and oral work, activities like quiz, elocution's competitions, craft work, socially useful and productive work etc are not ignored. The school holds an annual fete, inter-school painting competitions and annual concerts too. The school is an active member of AHEMS and the children take part in the annual athletic meet and inter-school competitions. In accordance with the facilities available the children have been performing well in such activities.

Technical education is behind in the school as one can see for oneself in the computer classes. The school has a big hall where the children carry out their activity periods like PT, yoga, aerobics, singing etc. Dance classes are also held in which both boys and girls take part actively. Folk dances like paharis, dandia etc are also taught so that the children get an opportunity to take part in such dance competitions within and out of the school. Every year the children actively take part in planting plants in the forest with plants provided by the forest department. In the month of October, a craft exhibition is also held to exhibit various cultures.
Each year one culture is selected and the whole year the students prepare exhibits of that culture, like last year the culture of Rajasthan was selected, the craft teacher helped the students to make'Jaipuri' items, like hand bags, cushion covers etc. Before closing the school for winter vacating, the school celebrates Christmas day in which each and every student takes part. In the near future the school is looking forward to expand the school to accommodate classes ninth and tenth too. It is also coming up with a school magazine for which students have started contributing.
