Sir Syed Memorial School is about 35 km from Gaya, at Karma, near Bhadeya in Barachatti block. It has approximately 1000 students and is run by the Minority Upliftment Society, which aims to provide a good education to children of poor families in rural areas.
Sir Syed Memorial School was founded by the Minority Upliftment Society. It is named after the educator Syed Ahmed Khan. Kamaluddin Khan and his brother Jalal Uddin Khan opened the school in 1992, initially as the Sir Syed Educational Centre, later renamed to the Sir Syed Memorial School. The initial intake was 60 students, but this rapidly grew to over 1000 students. For some years the school offered boarding facilities for up to 100 students, but this was discontinued as pupil numbers expanded.
The school has a library, computer center, science laboratory and Career Services Centre.
Students regularly achieve admission to colleges and universities. Several alumni have gone on to commercial and academic success in India and abroad.
