About MES

With a glorious tradition of 150 years, the Maharashtra Education Society (MES)​ has an exceptional record in field of education.

A deeply rooted tree of knowledge ranging from Kindergarten to Post-Graduation and full-fledged research embraces the rural as well as the urban areas of Maharashtra. Founded in 1860 by Vasudev Balwant Phadke, a great revolutionary leader of the pre-independence era along with Vaman Prabhakar Bhave and Laxman Narhar Indapurkar, MES has a history of grooming the best citizens of our country to nurture the strength of our nation. Since its founding, MES has devoted itself to the cause of education with great emphasis on the vital concept of building 'National Character'.

Today, the MES family boasts of more than 50,000 students and over 2,000 personnel. While retaining the best quality of education, MES is growing and developing a healthy network of educational institutions to cater to the need of our country in the current times.



Started in July 1997, the Rani Laxmibai Mulinchi Sainiki Shala is the first girls’ sainik school started by the Maharashtra Education Society. To contribute the best towards the development and building of our nation, the Maharashtra Education Society has made it a dream project and is doing its best to make it a success for the national cause. This unique school started with only one division of forty girl cadets from all over Maharashtra eighteen years back. Despite challenges, the school has successfully expanded to a strength of  more than six hundred girl cadets. The inclination of joining Defence Services is increasing day by day along with opting for other services like research, the Police Department and the administrative wings. The school starts from class five with a capacity of 45 cadets in each division. The classes are from fifth to twelfth with two divisions per standard. Junior College i.e. 11th and 12th –has only Science faculty and is affiliated to the State Board of Maharashtra. Semi-english medium is offered to the Secondary section and  English medium to the Higher Secondary section to provide equal opportunity to all girls in Maharashtra as we strongly believe that  language should not become a  barrier for them.


Our Vision

Vidya Balancha Upaswa is the motto of all sainik schools in Maharashtra, which clearly reflects our vision. With such a vision, of grooming young cadets with appropriate academic as well as physical development, the girls are trained in a very caring and scenic environment. We think that it is our prime duty and responsibility to provide energetic, creative, responsible, disciplined, sensible, strong and stout lady officers to the country. Admissions are given by identifying the true potential in the students which invariably culminates into great results.


Our Mission

Education is the backbone of personality development and the Maharashtra Education Society promotes it mainly with an aim of making a ‘MAN’ in the true sense of the word. To provide the best affordable education to deserving students is at the centre of the school’s mission.  In the interest of nation building, the focus is on overall personality development - mental, physical, intellectual as well as a strong moral value system.
