Gwalior

  The splendor of this royal city is living since sixth century. Once upon a time the patron saint of the shepherds and cowherds, Gwallipa, cured a king a of leprosy and thus the city got its name Gwalior on the saint.
With the decline of Muslim power in Delhi, Gwalior fell under the sway the Marathas- Scindias assumed sovereign power. The Scindias, counted among the most glamorous of Indian princes, became famous of their wealth and were popular with successive viceroys because of their generous hospitality and capacity to organize thrilling tiger shoots for visiting dignitaries.

Geographically situated at the heart of India, The Scindia School is about the spirit of India. The spirit, that makes human beings humane, pervades the school, moulding scholars to steer India in its path of progress. One of the factors lending to the beauty and invigorating atmosphere of the school is its unique setting on a historic fort 300 ft above the surrounding city. Such a historic, natural and tranquil place away from the din of the city affords an ideal educational environment for both the students and the teachers. A sense of history and achievement in the air serves as a natural impetus towards the Scindianís quest for excellence in all spheres of human development as a Global citizen.
