The Army Public School Shillong was established on 22 March 1983 as Army School Shillong. It was inaugurated by Mrs. SDS Yadava. It is located at the Cantonment Area of Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya, known as the Scotland of the East.
At present the school is located in two campuses.

The primary aim of establishing the school is to promote academic excellence, discipline, build personal character and inculcate a high sense of values and foster national integration among children, especially those of Army personnel.
