Lala Raghubir Singh
The Founder of Modern School
Our present can be traced back to 1920 when Lala Raghubir Singh
at No.24 Daryaganj Delhi, founded the first Modern School. At a time when education was considered to be the privilege of only the rich,
Lala ji envisioned a school that would provide exceptional educational opportunities to all students irrespective of caste, creed and social status.
A Dream is Born
On 24th October'1920 at Daryaganj
That dream, so far ahead of its time was planned at Daryaganj and now it has grown into
three institutions - Lala Raghubir Singh Junior Modern School Humayun Road , Modern School Barakhamba Road & Modern School Vasant Vihar .
All three are located in New Delhi. Modern School recognizes the individuality of each child. There is place here for the thinkers, the dreamers, the scholars, the artists, the craftspersons and the players. The magic of school life is indeed the amalgam of this phantasmagoria that unravels year after year,
ever new and compelling. It is this which gives a spring to the step and a lilt to one's voice.
