“A school where we learn to learn...”


Come! Experience the joy of learning in Sanjeewan Vidyalaya.

Standing on the threshold of its centenary, Sanjeewan Vidyalaya (Est.1922), through its innovative approach to academics, sport, creative skills and allied activities, is looking forward to being ‘a pacesetting learning institution’, where each learner creates a ‘niche’ for himself / herself, through hard work, concern, commitment, leading  to excellence.

Sanjeewan Vidyalaya is situated on a 4300 ft. high plateau on one of the ranges of the Western Ghats, on which sprawls the well-known mountain resort of Panchgani in south-western Maharashtra.

The bracing and beautiful environment makes Panchgani a perfect setting for residential schools. The school itself is spread over twenty two acres of woodland and plateau.  Within that area, it has the infrastructure providing residential facilities for boys and girls and an adequate and modern educational environment, including a central school building, a large library, well-equipped laboratories, computer technology, learning cell, a multipurpose hall with 2 badminton courts, an open air theatre, a fine arts complex, facilities for physical activities including a mini Olympic size swimming pool, a mini multipurpose astroturf for basketball, tennis, football and hockey, a skating rink, and a spacious playground. It is one of the rare schools to have an eight and a half acre level playground at the height of 1259 m.

A lot of thought and effort has gone into setting up educational infrastructure which not only takes care of utilities but gives the school a unique image - aesthetically and environmentally.

 Sanjeewan is a growing school under constant pressure for creation of more spaces for growth and learning, making continuous effort to renew itself and equip the staff to meet new educational challenges.

This school is one of those residential schools which was neither started by the government nor by a rich corporate, and it has never taken donations on a large scale.

The school was one of the first few schools to have been awarded a token grant under the scheme of ‘strengthening of good residential schools in the country’. Sanjeewan Vidyalaya thus got itself registered on the educational map of India as one of the better-known innovative educational organizations.

This ‘learning’ institution gives different dimensions and meanings to learning, entrepreneurship’, ‘management ,culture, academic excellence and growth.

It aspires to be a centre for dissemination of meaningful learning programmes, a trail blazer at all levels, not only in India, but  globally known as a ‘school with a difference’, where all participants ‘learn to learn’.

The school has an ISO 9001-2008 compliance certificate.

We, at Sanjeewan always...

  • Encourage and insist on ‘Excellence’ and commitment in whatever we do.
  • Help develop entrepreneurship, self-dependence and self-discipline.
  • Believe in being a ‘learning school’ rather than a ‘teaching school’.
