The Scindia School, Gwalior has been voted India's #1 boys boarding school in EWISR 2020-21, the world's largest and detailed schools ranking initiative. Admissions Open for the Academic Year 2021-22
His Highness Jeevajirao Scindia lost his father when he was nine years old. He recognized the importance of representative institutions. He followed his father’s legacy and undertook a number of measures to relieve the financial burdens of the farmers, established educational institutions, libraries, and hospitals for women and children. Jeevajirao ruled Gwalior until India's independence in 1947 and was one of the first rulers to accede to the Indian Union and signed a covenant with other rulers by which Gwalior was merged with princely states to become the new Indian state of Madhya Bharat within the union of India. He contributed Rs. 50 crores to the Government of India exchequer. 'George' Jeevajirao served as the State's Rajpramukh, or appointed Governor till 31 October 1956, when Madhya Bharat was merged into Madhya Pradesh. He used to visit the School and dine with the students once a week. He gave the School the vision statement: ‘The young men who go out of The Scindia School will carry in life and in their conduct the bold imprint of this institution, the stamp of self-discipline, of character, of chivalry, of dignity, and of good behavioural qualities on which higher citizenship is based.’
Jeevajirao abolished the system of bonded or unpaid labour. He built the Tekanpur Kothis, where the BSF Head Quarter is now located. He continued to serve until his untimely death in 1961, when the mantle passed to his 16 year old son Madhavrao Scindia II.
The motto of the House is "Guna Pooja Sthana"
