Today our school stands majestically in V.V. Nagar as a Shrine of Knowledge, verily an embodiment of academic, Cultural, Patriotic and moral anchorage. Presented here is its brief history that may provide insightful glimpses into our institution. Inspired by the ideals and exemplary life of kulapati Dr.S. Joshi, a towering education of our times, his students during his 75th birthday celebrations on 31st May, 1985, proposed to start a school that would carry on his exalted legacy. Sri Vummidi  Nandagopal, Dr. Joshi's student, was the one who mooted, articulated and gave a concrete shape to his proposal.

A man of vision and action,  NandSri Vummidiagopal's passion saw the school coming to life within just a fortnight after the idea was proposed. The ‘Kulapati Dr.S.Balakrishna Joshi Platinum Jubilee Commemoration Trust' was created to open and run the school. On 12th June 1985, the school was inaugurated by Kulapati Dr.Balakrishna Joshi himself, lighting the sacred lamp with classes LKG, UKG and I. The school made a very good impression on the local community and academic circle; the strength increased and additional rental building was taken for conducting the classes. The institution shall always be grateful for the Founder -President Sri Vummidi Nandagopal whose support and guidance steered the school through the initial years. He was responsible for inducting into the managing trust Sri Vummidi Dwarakanath whose support has been invaluable.

It was the good fortune of the school that Sri Nathella Ranganatha Gupta, son of Sri Nathella Audikesavalu Gupta, was co-opted as a Trustee and Vice- President. His Contributions and services deserves to be written in golden letters in the history of school.

It was his efforts and contribution that helped the school acquire 20 grounds of land in V.V.Nagar, Chennai-99; new classrooms were built and the infrastructure was strengthened; the school moved to its present location on 5th June, 1988.
