Founder[edit]

Mr J. P. Singh was the founder. Some quotes from him are:

  • On discipline: Though imbibing self discipline is the ultimate aim, we ask disciplinary committees to maintain discipline in the campus. Since in today's world outside influence on students is more important than the older days, a little bit of imposition from the school authority is required to make the student realize the importance of it in their life.
  • On tuition menace: There is no harm in students taking extra bit of coaching for a short while but it should not be of longer duration as tuition does not only make them dependent but is also a time killer, leaving the children with very little time to pursue other activities.
