Welcome To Kannada High School & Junior College
Who We Are
Vidya Prasark Mandal (Regd) was established in 26th March, 1960 to provide educational facilities to children of Kannada speaking parents in Greater Mumbai. It took over the Kannada Primary classes, established in 1957, from Karnataka Sangh, Mulund-Thane. In 1962, the Mandal added Secondary Classes from V to VIII which gradually flowered into a full-fledged Kannada Medium High School. The first batch appeared for SSC Examination in 1966. In 1972 the Mandal decided to start an English Medium School and they started K. G. classes to meet the growing demand for education through English medium from the cosmopolitan community of Mulund. This became VPM’s English High School in 1982. The School was named as VPM’s B R Tol English High School when late Shri B R Tol gave a handsome donation to the Mandal. Now the school is affiliated to CBSE board. The two schools have made a name for themselves. Despite financial and space constraints, the Management, consistent with their proclaimed policy of moving forward in catering to the needs of higher education in Mulund, started Junior College as an extension of VPM’s Kannada High School from the academic year 1991-92. Within a short span of its establishment, the Jr. College has grown by leaps and bounds producing commendable results year after year despite admitting students from poor economic and academic backgrounds. During the past five years the college has been securing over 98% results in HSC with a higher number of students obtaining distinction. Our outgoing students always come out with higher percentage than that they had obtained in SSC thereby improving their performance in our Jr. College.
