More about Alborz high school:

It was founded as an elementary school in 1873 by a group of American missionaries headed by Mr. Bassette.This was in the 26th year of the reign of Nasereddin Shah Qajar, 22 years after Amir Kabir founded the Daar-ol-Fonoon school in Tehran and 21 years before the constitutional revolution in Iran. When Dr. Samuel Jordan arrived in Iran in 1898, he made various changes and the school became a 12-year elementary and secondary school offering some college courses. Many referred to it as the "American College".

Dr. Jordan was president of Alborz for 42 years (1899-1940). During this time Alborz grew from an elementary school to a famous and respected high school and college. But in 1940 and during World War II, by the order of the Shah Reza Pahlavi, Alborz was taken from American management and was put under Iranian Ministry of Education during Reza Shah's modernization reforms. At this time the name was also changed form "College" to "Alborz".
In 1944, Professor Mohammad Ali Mojtahedi, member of University of Tehran's faculty, was appointed as the president of Alborz and from that time until 1979 and continuing after the Iranian revolution, Alborz had the most successful period of its history.
In recent years Alborz continues to be one of the best schools of Iran, but by no means it is the undisputed number one in ranking that it used to be; and has fallen in ranking mostly due to the series of national schools for both boys and girls which absorb the highest academic achievers. Nevertheless, Alborz continues to be consistently ranked among the top 10 best schools of Iran.
