Bhonsala Military School, Nasik was established by Dr. Balkrishna Shivramji Moonje, who established the Central Hindu Military Education Society at Nasik in 1935 and started the school on June 12, 1937.
Over the years, the school has established itself as a school catering for educational needs of students from all over India while also serving as a focal point for military education. In 1995, the school was granted affiliation by the Indian Public Schools' Conference, an association of heads of leading public schools of the country.
The school began in the Surgana Palace in Nasik City with 90 students on its roll. The maharaja of erstwhile Gwalior State, H.H. Shriman Jivajirao Scindia, inaugurated the main building of the school. In his inaugural speech, he said, "It is not a mere coincidence that within a short period of the opening of a first rate public school in India [Doon School, Dehradun], we are here today to open a first rate Military School." The governor of Bombay State, Sir Roger Lumley, laid the foundation stone of the school's present main building.
Dr. B. S. Moonje was born on 12 December 1872 in Bilaspur. He lived his school life in Bilaspur and Raipur, and became a doctor from Grant Medical College Mumbai in 1898. He participated in the Boer War in 1899 as a member of the medical wing.
He gained recognition as a multifaceted personality, doctor by profession; well versed in shastras; and a vigorously active politician, later named as "Dharmaveer" Dr. B. S. Moonje. His contribution in reference to 'Simon Commission', 'Budget Provision for Defense', 'Social Reform' and other initiatives has been acknowledged.
Dr. Moonje landed in Nashik because he wished to see young people in the armed forces and the civil service upholding the integrity and sovereignty of the Motherland. He was a believer in the Indianisation of the armed forces during the British rule, and he was also a believer in the indispensability of military training to Indian youth.
In 1935, he established the Central Hindu Military Education Society at Nashik at the age of 63 with the aim of 'Indianisation' of the army (Indian Defense) and started 'Bhonsala Military School' in 1937.
The school's commandant is Major Chandrasen Kulthe (Retd) and principal is Mrs. C.S. Gaur.
