The school was founded by the Birla Educational Trust in 1944 as a Montessori School under the able guidance of Dr. Maria Montessori, the world famous pioneer in child education. It was then known as Shishu Mandir. The Institution remained a day school till 1948. The first hostel for children was built in the same year. By 1952, the school was changed into a purely Residential Institution. A year later, the school was accepted as a full member of the Indian Public School Conference. It was due to the vision and farsightedness of the renowned industrialist, educationist and philanthropist, Shri G.D. Birla that this nursery school gradually developed into a full-fledged Public School in 1954. It was Shri G.D. Birla's golden dream to establish a unique system of education on the sandy dunes of Rajasthan which was once an odd assortment of a few tall imperial buildings and some mud huts. It has now 15 beautifully designed hostels catering to the needs of the 1000 pupils coming from different cultural backgrounds. The school has three sprawling green campuses with vast play grounds and courts.
