Established in 1985 as a non-profit, Maa Anandmayee Memorial School (MAMS) is a co-educational K12 High School that was founded in the memory of Divine Maa by her followers. After hectic Utsavas, Maa often retired here in the village Gohri Mafi, where the school is located. She had once remarked that the place would become valuable one day, and what can be more valuable than imparting knowledge.
The School is an English Medium day cum residential school affiliated to The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), New Delhi. It offers sound education and facilities for sports and extracurricular activities for students from Playgroup to Class XII. Although the school is founded as a memorial to Maa, it is run absolutely as a secular institution. Maa believed in human and moral values, which we endeavour to inculcate in our students. The school makes direct teaching-learning interventions with an endeavour to ‘discover and develop each child’s interests and gifts’. The inherent focus on 21st-century skill-sets facilitates learners to grow to their full potential, achieve self-actualization and develop competencies to face today’s challenges with élan.
Situated in a pristine village that is often considered sacred, MAMS is perhaps the only senior secondary school operating in the interior locales of a National Park: Rajaji Tiger Reserve. The school overlooks the foothills of picturesque Shivalik Himalayas around the serene Doon valley, and it has efficiently used its locational edge to successfully groom thousands of next-generation leaders over 3 decades of relentless service in the grassroots education space.
The education at MAMS disrupts mainstream rote learning in its mission to augment the lives of underserved students through holistic schooling at affordable rates. It expedites an unparalleled awakening using a broader 4E paradigm with a vision to Educate, Enlighten, Enrich, and Empower the rural community
The educational journey provided at MAMS goes beyond imparting basic knowledge: through carefully planned, inter-disciplinary scholastic and co-scholastic programmes, MAMS equips learners with necessary life skills, leadership acumen and values preparing them to face life’s vagaries in a confident & courageous manner. MAMS employs contemporary methodology, including a design-thinking approach and project-based learning that help address real-world issues.
