Raja Shivaji Vidyalaya
Raja Shivaji Vidyalaya (formerly known as King George High School), is a high school in the Dadar neighborhood of Mumbai, India. The school was founded in 1912, and named in honor King George V who had visited India in 1911. It was renamed in 1974, at which time it switched from an English language curriculum to a Marathi curriculum. It has since resumed English education, becoming a "semi-English" (mixed English/Marathi) institution.
Notable alumni of the school include:
- Murlidhar Chandrakant Bhandare, governor of Orissa
- Prashant Damle, actor
- Madhav Mantri, cricketer
- Dilip Vengsarkar, cricketer
