In 1935-1936 following the order of Reza Shah Pahlavi to nationalize all of the private schools, the school was renamed Parvin High School (دبیرستان پروین)[1] by Iran's Ministry of Education. At present this school is divided into three separate secondary schools; however, the main original building still remains, as part of Parvin School.
