The School is situated near the famous Siddha-Peeth Surkanda-Devi, which is at a distance of only 5 kilometres. Pilgrims from distant places regularly visit the temple to get blessings of the Divine Mother 'Surkanda-Devi'.

This area is surrounded by the beautiful fruit belt, mountains and rich forests of rhododendron trees. Years ago, the Government planted thousands and thousands of fruit trees of apples, pears, cherries and nuts to support the agriculture of this area. During winter there is snowfall in this region.

The School was founded in 1991 and is imparting quality education in the area, which is evident from the increasing strength of the students every year. The Management and Teaching Staff are very dedicated and committed for the tremendous development of the child personality. The children of this School are regularly getting admissions in prestigious Govt. Colleges for higher level education.

Not only this, the students of this School are often receiving prizes in District and State level competitions in curricular matters, but also in sports and cultural matters.
