The School : The School: Mahadevi Birla Shishu Vihar, the first school of the Ashok Hall Group, started its journey as a fledgeling, a play school for Shri Aditya Vikram Birla in 1946. Since the time of its inception, our founder Late Sarala Birla’s astute faith in child-centric education has helped the school evolve into an institute par excellence.

Our school achieved its first significant milestone in 1984 when it was accredited by the Indian Council of Secondary Education (ICSE). With the introduction of ISC for the higher secondary level, offering courses in all the three streams of Science, Commerce and Humanities, the school reached yet another turning point. Mahadevi Birla Shishu Vihar also became the first school in Kolkata to be certified by the International Organisation for Standardisation and can boast compliance with ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2015.

Today, the school offers education of global dimensions, from pre-nursery to the high school level, nurturing about 2000 students. Dedicated faculty members, administrative staff and cooperative parents form a unified team making endeavours to transform every young mind into a progressive and productive citizen of the world.

Our Facilities

Students are given access to virtual library at computer laboratories. Kindles are provided from classes VI onwards to cater to the needs of our little nerdy book worms.

School Cinema is a film-based module that aims to inculcate values and decision-making skills in children. This module, introduced in the middle school for classes VI to VIII, plays a critical role in helping children internalise important lessons and becoming more sensitive individuals.


This unique educational approach combines learning objectives with community service, helping children to understand the societal needs and contribute to effect positive change in their immediate environment.


These trips foster togetherness and encourage children to face the unforeseen as they learn to adjust and develop essential coping skills.


Educational exchange programmes provide children with international exposure to widen the ambit of their knowledge turning them into responsible global citizens.
