The Mother's International School was founded on 23 April 1956 by Surendra Nath Jauhar "Faquir"

The Mother's International School
Sri Aurobindo Ashram - Delhi Branch
Sri Aurobindo Marg, New Delhi - 110016
The Mother's International School is situated in the midst of the sylvan surroundings of Sri Aurobindo Ashram (Delhi Branch) Campus on Sri Aurobindo Marg. The calm, serene and spiritual ambience of the shrine of Sri Aurobindo, amidst beautiful lawns, lush green trees and flower beds, induces a feeling of peace and quiet.

Our aim in the school is to help a child to realise his own unique potential in the light of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother's vision of integral education.... An education which aims at the flowering of the child's physical, emotional, mental and spiritual personality. It is the progressive widening of consciousness which helps the child to manifest that within him, which is uniquely his, leading to an increasing satisfaction and success in individual living as also collective living, socially, nationally and internationally. Our endeavour is to impart education which looks beyond the frontiers of formal education. It is, in fact, a preparation for life long learning.

The school was founded on 23 April 1956 by Shri Surendra Nath Jauhar "Faquir", with the blessings of The Mother, Mirra Alfassa, a renowned spiritualist, the spiritual partner and collaborator of Sri Aurobindo.

The school's motto "More True, Forever More True" was given by the Mother herself and the school's emblem portrays a bird in flight rising towards heaven. When asked about the date of the school's opening, the Mother replied "23456". And as the only possible date was 23 April 1956, it was this day that the school first opened.

When the school started out, a whole batch would have not more than 15 children, but today, a batch has 180 students, divided into 5 sections of 35-36 students each. The school has two wings, the Primary Wing, and the Senior Wing. Headmistress = Sangamitra Ghosh, Principal = K. Rajalakshmi, Vice-Principal = H. Bhalla, Hon. Director = Indu Pillay, Chairman = Anil Jauhar, Founder = Shri Surendra Nath Jauhar "Faquir" List of Principals Harpal Bhalla, Indu Pillay, Mahrukh Singh, K Rajalakshmi
