Our School

The Mahindra Academy formerly known as Students’ Academy was established in June 1970. The School is managed by a Governing Council consisting of members of the Mahindra Education Society. The School was primarily for the children of M/s. Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. employees. However now other eligible students are also admitted. Today, the School has a spacious three storeyed building surrounded by beautiful garden where over 1200 students both boys and girls come for learning. We prepare students for the SSC examination conducted by the Maharashtra State Board for Secondary Education.

Value Based Education

The importance and urgency of value based education has become an integral part of formal education because of the increasing conflicts in human life. The very existence of traditional institutions such as family, religion, state and society are being questioned. Their very foundations are shaking. Globalization has affected our culture, our faith and the very essence of human relations. The young generation is turning a blind eye to our age old values and traditions. So we feel that it is necessary to introduce such values directly or indirectly along with the teaching of different subjects.

Science Laboratory

The initiative for setting up these laboratories was taken by Mr. J. P. Robert, the former principal of our School.

Students’ Counseling

The service of a counsel Cell is available. By diagnostic screening and suitable counseling, the counsel Cell will attempt to solve the problem of students. This counseling cell gives help and guidance to students to concentrate on studies, achieve a higher degree of proficiency and regroup their thoughts and attitudes and behave better in School and at home.

School Discipline:-The kind of discipline that we wish to instill among the young boys and girls of this School is based on the latest knowledge of the behavioural sciences according to which ‘Discipline must come through liberty’. If discipline is founded on liberty the discipline itself must necessarily be active. We do not consider a student disciplined only when he/she has been rendered artificially silent, as mute and as immovable as a paralytic, such a student is an individual annihilated and not disciplined .We call a student disciplined when he/she is a master of himself /herself and can therefore, regulate his /her conduct when it will be necessary to follow some rules of discipline. In enforcing them, we take atmost care that the creativity and abilities of the students to innovate are not trampled upon.
