Anjuman-I-Islam School was founded by a small group of devout and progressive Muslims. Led by Dr Badruddin Tyabji, Third President of the Indian National Congress and the First Acting Indian Chief Justice of Bombay High Court, the Muslim community raised funds and successfully applied for assistance from the Government and Municipal Corporation.

The foundation stone was laid by Lord Reay on 31 March 1890 and the school was opened by Lord Harris on 27 February 1893. The school building, located next to the Times of Indian building and opposite to VT station, was designed by James Willcocks and overseen by Khan Bahadur Muncherjee Cowasjee Murzban. Appropriately for its period and in the context of its occupants, the style of the school is Indo-Saracenic, that mix of Gothic Revival and Mughal architecture which used domes, evocative of those found in mosques and minarets.

The architect was James Wilcock. Dressed blue stone was used for the facing of the building, while the columns and arches were made from Porbunder and yellow Kurla stone, 'relieved' in places by red Hemnugger stone. Coloured tiles were used for ornamentation. The central domed tower is 42m (125 ft) high. A prominent architectural feature of the Anjuman-I-Islam School is an Indo-Saracenic style cupola, which can be seen in this exterior view of the building.
