About The Scindia School, Gwalior

The history of The Scindia School provides a fascinating insight into the changes happening in India from feudal times to the modern day. The Scindia School was founded as The Sardar School in 1897 by the visionary HH Maharaja Madhavrao Scindia I.

The turn of the nineteenth century was a period of turmoil and disorientation, as the colonial system of education with English as the medium of instruction, was displacing the traditional pathshalas, madarsas and gurukuls . However, even then, the school captured the best of the learning of the new world and combined it with the finest of timeless India. In this respect, The Scindia School has been the torchbearer of modern education systems, combining it with a unique Indian ethos. It has been, in every way, always one step ahead of the times.

The School with its unique location, atop the historic Gwalior Fort, is a residential school with a difference. The ramparts of the Fort have witnessed history unfold : Tatya Tope’s troops battling the British, and the Rani of Jhansi breathing her last in her final assault. A casual glance out of a classroom window may well find eyes resting on an exquisite sixth century temple, adorned with bas-reliefs.

Amidst such surroundings, tranquil, yet with so much to tell, academics take on added dimensions. Here academic striving encompasses a life-long thirst for scholarship and curiosity. The Scindia School aims to instill a progressive mind-set and nurture leaders of tomorrow, who will succeed in any endeavour that they turn their hand to, anywhere in the world, and yet retain an unmistakable Indian ethos and Sanskar.
