The English medium and Marathi medium primary section with the name “Shishu Vihar and Balak Mandir” was started in the year June 1985. Due to increase in strength of students the school was divided into two shifts. At present total strength is 789 in English medium and 790 in Marathi medium. The school is committed to give better citizen and good human being through our educational process.
Latter on great poet Kusumagraj inaugurated new class for the school. In the very beginning, English & Marathi medium would hold classes at the same time but due to strength it was divided into two shifts.
