Gyan Vihar School is a Community of Change Makers.

Gyan Vihar is the culmination of Late Shri Suresh Sharma's beliefs, conviction and philosophy that good education moulds a human being into a virtuous and well-rounded individual on whose shoulders lies the onus of a creating a civil and just world. Imperative to nation building, education must first and foremost build character.

With these views, the journey that began in the late 30s came to fruition in the year 1994 in the form of Gyan Vihar School, a revolutionary place of study which lives by the motto of "Kids fly free".

Today in its 25th year Gyan Vihar is still striving to cause disruptions and stir mini-revolutions in the education space so that kids reach their optimum potential while also ensuring that the joy in learning doesn't disappear.
Gyan Vihar is a conscientious organisation which was conceived with the objective of imparting wholesome education and instilling critical thinking in young minds. We have tried to combine the age-old Indian ethos and wisdom with a modern mindset to present a pedagogical model that looks after all the needs of a young human mind while enriching the soul.

Keeping up with technological advancement and exploring the less travelled avenues have always driven Gyan Vihar in curating a unique scheme of education that caters to boys and girls between the age group of 3 to 18 years. The school is an English Medium, Co-Educational Senior Secondary School affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), New Delhi.
