Mrs. Jog Surekha
Head Mistress, I.E.S. Raja Shivaji Vidyalaya  
Raja Shivaji Vidyalaya has been an emblem of knowledge and a journey in itself that began almost 100 years ago with a noble aim to promote creation, dissemination and prevention of knowledge. Today, it stands tall as one of the best institutions in the state to have been an alma mater as well as a work place of many distinguished citizens of India and thus making significant, sustainable and socially responsible contribution towards the society.

Founded in 1912 Raja Shivaji Vidyalaya stood true to its motto in achieving the traditional goals of education by employing a modern, leading-edge approach while offering a challenging student-centered learning environment. Be it Academics, Sports or Culture, the students of Raja Shivaji Vidyalaya have left an impressive mark. The teacher has encouraged the questioning spirit of the students by actively participating in seminars and exhibitions like Aryabhatta Science Exhibition to name a few. Not only academics, the School has assigned significance to extra-curricular activities like camps, games in order to imbibe self- discipline, will power, strength and stamina and an ability to work ingeniously among the students.

Any institution that works at this stature draws heavily on the human element- the passion and commitment demonstrated across all areas by the excellent Teaching Staff. The dedication and the devotion of the Teachers have made the school a Temple of Knowledge where the students have been granted the qualities of head, heart and hand in the form of blessings. At the same time, I take immense pleasure to acknowledge the role played by the efficient non-teaching and the support staff in the day to day activities of the school.

There have been challenging times faced by Raja Shivaji Vidyalaya but the ability to adopt and mould according the changing times has made the century-old journey enriching. After having touched the lives of countless students and teachers, the school has now adopted Internet and Information Technology aptly. The sprawling Computer Laboratory as well as the computerization of the Library bears a testimony to the fact that Raja Shivaji Vidyalaya continues to stand strong to welcome the New beginning.
