Updated on April 20, 2019

Private Primary Boundary Road School (PPBRS) was founded by Daw Tin Tin Aye. She was succeeded by her younger sister Daw Khin Khin Aye (Teacher Ah Mar) as Principal. Daw Yi Yi (second sister) taught Infant (A) [equivalent to Higher KG].

PPBRS was located at 109 Boundary Road.

The school was renamed PBRS (Private Boundary Road School) after it opened classes for Middle School and High School.
