The school, being the unique one in its type and quality, has been faithful to its mission for about 50 years. During the last 48 years it has taken a great number of initiatives. In 1994, when Armenians were in serious social-economic condition and the science and education were pushed back Ar. Shahinyan‘s Physic-mathematical Public Boarding School took new initiative to organize teachers’ annual methodological scientific conference. During these years it has not only survived but also increased its activity involving regional teachers.
