Founded in 1920, a century ago, Modern School is a visionary’s dream. Lala Raghubir Singh with the motivation of his father Rai Bahadur Sultan Singh, dreamt of an eclectic institution which would provide the nation leaders of tomorrow. It was a dream well ahead of its time and how it has stood the test! Right from its inception to its realisation, Lala ji was involved in the fruition of his dream. His father’s house in Kashmiri Gate was a hub for the National leaders of the time and they all had an influence on young Lala ji who decided to start a school embedded with moral values and modern ideas in response to Bapu’s call for national education. His education was majorly impacted by Master Amir Chand, Pearson, Rev C.F. Andrews and influenced by Gandhi ji and Tagore. He brought together a team of likeminded individuals like Sir Sobha Singh and Dr S K Sen. Ms Kamla Bose, with her experience in education became the first Principal to implement the dreams of the visionary and that is how the journey began.
