Our inspiration

Innovate, invoke and propagate modern teaching and administrative methods. Weave this philosophy into every thread of the NES and SVB education fabric.

Since the time we started in 1963, all institutions have been achieving 100% results and producing merit rankers at the State Board (so long as it existed) and University examinations.

The NES National Centre for Research & Development in Education, Science & Technology is yet another unique non-government venture, started in 1993, committed to research and development in Education, Science and Technology, the only one of its kind in the country.

This progressive attitude has bestowed upon the NES numerous National Awards and recognitions. Commemorating the society's 30 years of nation building task through education, a special postal stamp was released on the 5th of September 1994 by the government of India, and in the same year, the founder president of NES - Dr R Varadarajan, Founder of NES & SVB, was conferred with the BEST TEACHER AWARD by the then Hon’ble President of India, Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma.

In 1997, the Founder of NES Dr. R. Varadarajan was awarded “Outstanding Educationist in India” in the Netaji Centenary Celebration at the hands of Dr. Anita Bose Pfaff, daughter of Netaji’.

On 14th, April, 2002, all the institutions under the NES & SVB banner, received the ISO 9001:2000 certification for maintaining world class standards in education. This was then the first of its kind for any educational institution in the state of Maharashtra.

The 'A' grade awarded to NES Ratnam College by NAAC, UGC & the grade awarded to SVB's College of Pharmacy emerged as the best college in Maharashtra, only to re-affirm the quality objectives of the institution. Following, this, the Municipal authorities named a street in Bhandup after the college name.

In the year 2007, the IMC’s Ramakrishna Bajaj National Quality award was bagged by NES, being declared best in India in Education Sector.

In the World arena too, Dr R. Varadarajan's stupendous contribution was recognised by the British Institute for Learning and Development. He was awarded a ‘British Fellowship’. In 2009, all NES –SVB institutions were awarded the British Quality Mark with British Corporate Membership. Dr R. Varadarajan's contribution was highly recognised by the British Parliament at the House of Commons UK in 2011.

Thus, the National Education Society and Saraswathi Vidya Bhavan group of institutions have been constantly pioneering in the field of education by setting landmarks and creating records, year after year.

7 students in 1963. 43,500 today.

Dr R Varadarajan, a visionary who always thought ahead of his times, started his educational mission with 7 tiny tots in 1963. He has since then continued to steward the cause of education as Principal of schools and President of Colleges, that he established.

Today 43,500 students from 55 institutions benefit from the educational societies and trusts founded by Dr Varadarajan.

The Government of Maharashtra has honoured Dr Varadarajan with a very special 4 years extension of service for his yeoman contribution to education.

parent reflections

We were surprised when Suhani explained to us the respiratory and digestive systems.It was taught to her wonderfully at school using visual aids.
Thanks a lot!

Parent of Suhani Bijlani, Foundation A

Ayush knows his poems and the national anthem really well. He asks for permission before doing someting. He also enjoys yoga at school and practices those asanas at home as well.

Parent of Ayush Kapoor

When we were dealing with a unit on communication, Sanika inquired how plants and animals communicate. We were surprised as it was not included in the topic. This showed that she reflected being an enquirer.

Parent of Sanika, Grade 2

My daughter taught her cousins and friends about articles, vowels and rhymes during her summer vacation. Even taught me the ascending and descending order using our family tree as an example. She also teaches our maid English conversation skills like 'How are you?', 'I am fine', etc.

Mother of Samruddhi Gupta

My daughter has shown positive development thanks to the training and learning she is receiving at school. She is willing to help people, she even helps me and her father in our everyday activites. It is amazing to see how she is practically applying her learnings from school in her daily life. We are quite happy with her conduct and would like to sincerely thank her teachers and the entire management.

Mother of Urja Kothari

The one page handwriting practice from the Newspaper is very helpful. Not only does it help my son improve his handwriting, but it also makes him aware of what is happening in the world. He chooses his favorite news each day and practices.

Mother of Ayush, PYP 4A

I would like to thank you and appreciate your hardwork, support and understanding towards my daughter. The inquiry fair held at the school was excellent. I found Geona to be very confident and smart when she was performing at the fair. Thank you for giving her this opportunity and showing faith in her.

Mother of Geona, 1-B

My son spoke on topics taught at school without any hesitation. This shows that he has understood these topics well. I am very happy with my son's progress. Thank you.
