Established in 1920, Modern School Barakhamba Road has been synonymous with holistic education coupled with Indian ethos. It was to execute this dream envisioned by Lala Raghubir Singh, that his father, Lala Sultan Singh, a prominent businessman of Delhi, donated his sprawling mansionin Daryaganj for the cause.
Lala Raghubir Singh was the spirit and the soul of the school. As the primary Founder of the school, he left no stone unturned to ensure the realisation of his dreams. He teamed up with Sardar Sobha Singh, a renowned contractor instrumental in building New Delhi, to build a legacy that continues till today in the pristine glory of the environment. To implement his ideas, Mrs Kamla Bose came from Calcutta to take over as the first Principal of the school
Mrs. Kamala Bose takes the pride of place in leading her students from the front and ensuring the realisation of the dreams of Lala Raghubir Singh, who believed in the adage : “EDUCATION IS WHAT EDUCATION DOES”..
The presiding deity, Goddess Saraswati stands testimony to this noble venture and the day starts with paying obeisance to the chiselled statue that showers blessings on its wards! VIVA LA MODERN !
