imgA dream coupled with hard work and dedication is reality. The history of Modern School is at no odds. The birth of Modern School dates back to July 1981 when the hilly town of Dungarpur welcomed into its bosom a couple with three children, who were challenged by the call to serve humanity with the love of Jesus Christ and with a burden for quality English education in this impoverished town.

This couple, namely Pastor K. O. Varghese and Late Mrs. Lisamma Varghese, along with few dedicated teachers nurtured this school. The wee days of the school witnessed enormous support from many well wishers, among whom Late Dr. Thomas Mathews, Late Mrs. D. P. Roy and Late Mr. Durga Shankar Choubisa are the prominent names.

Initially, the school functioned in Railway Institute with a roll of 100 students and 5 staff but due to the increasing number of admissions, soon had to shift to a bigger building Kothari Bhawan, Shastri Colony which became it's official address till it moved into it's own building in the year 2000.

Currently, the school has more than thousand students and an efficient team of nearly eighty teaching and non-teaching staff.



Message from the Founder Chairman: Rev. K. O. Varghese

It was the lack of English education in this town which prompted me and my wife to begin this school. When we founded this school we didn't have any financial or material resources and it was purely the hard work and dedication of our family and friends which became the seed capital for this institution. As Bible says, "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." We committed this little labor of our hands into the 'Hands of God' and God gave the increase.

Many people clubbed with us and worked hard for the betterment of this institute. Today we can see the fruit of what people sowed years before. But still we have a long way to go, crossing all the hurdles we want to run to the chequered flag.

We know that we alone won't be able to do that and we need many more helping hands. Please feel free to contact us for more details. May God bless you.

Message from the Director: Mr. Santosh V. Varghese, M.Sc. ( Phy.) M. Th. (O.T.)

Dreams have got no limits. Every child has a dream. Parents too have a dream about their children. The responsibility of the school is to help the child synchronize his/her dreams with that of their parents. We at Modern School too have a vision, a dream concerning our students.

We wish to see our students, blossoming up not only as intellectual giants confident enough to face the challenge posed by the contemporary society, but also possessing a humane face to empathize with the needy. And above all humble enough to acknowledge and depend upon the Supreme creator God to realize and fulfil ones purpose of existence in this earth.

Since its inception, Modern School family has been tirelessly involved in bringing this dream to fruition. In this post-modern society, where all the absolutes are being questioned, our endeavour becomes more challenging. But we are focused and we believe that we are here in Divine purpose to carve out a generation which will stand for absolutes and become the guiding light of the society.

Message from the Principal: Mrs. Pratibha James, M.A. (Eng.) M.A. (Psyc.) B. Ed.

Education is the sea of learning and we at Modern School try our level best to let the waves of knowledge fill the eyes of students with glittering confidence to face the future. Our noble vision is to nurture the nature and spontaneity in the young children and to prepare them for the joie the vivre that children are intrinsically gifted with by making learning a fun.

Established in 1981, Modern School spearheaded a campaign in making difference in the lives of the people living in this 'Vagad' region by gifting them with a quality education. The school began to grow leaps and bound and especially over the last few years the school has witnessed exponential growth. It has come a long way from the formative years to a growing influential School of the city with more than thousand students getting trained in the scholastic and co-scholastic aspects.

Life today, is clearly witnessing gigantic changes in the field of science, technology, management and information. This situation demands readiness to face the changes, therefore we provide ample opportunities in all spheres of learning, helping the child to emerge as a wholesome personality; ready to face the challenges of life as we believe that - "Our greatest natural resource is the mind of our children"

Core Team

Besides the director and the principal the school has got a team of well experienced personnel who are involved in the day to day functioning of the school. This team mainly consists of the following personnel.

Girish Pandya (Administrator) C. Jacob (Bursar) Mariamma Abraham (Advisor) Samson Varghese (Advisor)


Modern School is known for its well qualified, committed and experienced team of teachers. Our teaching faculty is composed of individuals coming from different sectors of the society. The primary qualification which we prefer to have in our teachers is the ability to understand and value the individuality of each student. Every student is different and it needs a lot of care and patience on the part of the teacher to assist the students in letting him or her explore the world around without loosing his or her own roots. School is having well trained counsellors to help the students to cope up with the various stresses and pressure which they encounter in their day to day life.
