History Of The School
The Magnanimous Journey of VPMS
Vikhe Patil Memorial School (VPMS) Nashik, was established in the year 1995, initially for pre- primary classes, near ‘Kalidas Kala Mandir’, which later shifted to the current premises in the academic year 2001-02. The foundation of the school is laid on the four core values and principles viz. EQUALITY, GENDER SENSITIVITY, EMPATHY and MUTUAL RESPECT.
The school is run and managed by Dr. Vikhe Patil Foundation, Pune under the guidance and dynamic leadership of Dr. Ashok Vikhe Patil, Chairman of the Foundation. In the later years, the school infrastructure has grown from one floor to a new three-story building, the ‘Matoshree Block’ adjacent to the old building. The School has gradually flourished in all aspects and now it offers classes from Nursery to Std. X. The School is a Government Recognized Permanently Non-granted English Medium School and follows the curriculum of the State Board of Maharashtra. The school has an adequate number of well-trained and experienced teachers who are knowledgeable and qualified in their subjects and have a proven track record of success and commitment. The school is headed by the Principal, Mrs. Pallavi Vidhate who has been working in this capacity since 2001.
We, in VPMS believe that it is essential to choose the right school for the ultimate and overall development of the child. We believe that every child deserves the fertile and conducive school environment at the early stage of school life and thus make it our purpose to provide just that, to all the children who enter our doors.
We take pride in ourselves on fostering strong values, creating mutual understanding, bringing in respect for others and noticeable personal growth, as part of a student’s everyday life which will also achieve our school motto – ‘Making life meaningful’. Our high standard of education has made remarkable progress in the field of academics and earned laurels and recognition in various co-curricular activities.
Besides academics, we believe in educating our children beyond four walls. The major highlight of our school is to provide them with such platforms. Therefore, our students have performed exceedingly well in competitive exams like ‘National Talent Search’, ‘International and National Olympiad’ and ‘Scholarship Examinations’. Keeping in mind the overall development of a child, the school focuses on activity-based learning and conducts Club Activities related to the fields like Arts, Life Skills, Heritage, Nature, Science, Mathematics, Literature, and Sports. To facilitate the overall development of its students, the school aims to provide excellent infrastructure. Along with the spacious classrooms, we have well equipped laboratories, a library with a vast collection of books, interactive board and audio-visual hall and a playground facility. In addition to the academics, our school is also well known for training in Sports.
To foster the healthy bonding between the teachers and the parents, one of our focus areas is to have periodic meetings and discussions with the parents and guardians of our students by organizing PTMs.
In a nutshell, the school leaves no stone unturned to initiate a structured program pertaining to the overall development of our children. We take pride in claiming that VPMS is a ‘One Stop’ to learn, grow, develop and transform into bright minds.
