About Us

Mahatma Education Society, the parent body of Mahatma School and Junior College is an institution founded on the rock foundation of the values and principles conceived, cherished and followed by the great mahatmas of our soil. Truly speaking the cardinal principles of a good and meaningful life are universally the same. Thus, Mahatma Education Society’s nomenclature is not a coincidence but a well-conceived symbolism for its ethos, values and objectives, M.E.S’s journey from a small school in a tiny shed at Chembur to a world class education complex at New Panvel, is a saga of sacrifice and struggle. The phenomenal progress of Mahatma Education Society is the outcome of the far-sighted vision of its founding father and Chairman, late Principal M. P. Pillai, the missionary zeal, global outlook, undaunted spirit and dynamic leadership of its Executive Secretary and C.E.O., Dr. K. M. Vasudevan Pillai, the enlightened guidance and inspiration of the Joint Secretary Dr. Daphne Pillai, and the unstinted co-operation and support of the staff, parents and patrons.
