“Saptashri Gyanpeeth is an institution born of dreams. The school’s primary counterpart Toddlers’ Preparatory School has been around since 1968. With the vision and labor of Late Directress Mrs Lalita Pradhan, the school steadily grew in size and strength and in 1993 Saptashri was established as a full fledged Council certified institution. Since then, we have grown further in size and popularity over the years, a reflection of our high standing in the community and our outstanding achievements.Currently we have over 1500 pupils and nearly 110 teaching and ancillary staff. We as a school mainly cater to the local children of Kalimpong, however we do have a small percentage of students joining us from across the country, as well as internationally. “
