Podar Education Network

Established in 1927, by Sheth Anandilal Podar, Podar Education Group has, from the very beginning been focussed driven and motivated by the traditional Indian values of honesty, integrity and service. The father of our nation, Mahatma Gandhi, being the very first President of the Anandilal Podar Trust stands testimony to this fact. (View the minutes of the first Trust meeting).

With over 93 years of experience within the educational space, the Podar group is now a network of 131 educational institutions spread across the nation, with a combined student strength of more than 1,60,000 and the support of 7,600 dedicated and loyal staff members.

Goals of Each Podar Students

Independent Thinkers

At Podar International School, the students from a very young age are trained and encouraged to be independent thinkers and to take on an approach of innovation and ingenuity. Therefore, when faced with a problem or a situation, our students do not simply look for ready answers but use their imagination and analytical abilities to create pragmatic solutions.


We believe that it is not enough for our children to just have great ideas. It is equally, if not more important that they are able to communicate these ideas effectively. We train our children to be effective communicators, armed with eloquence, assertiveness and clarity in thought to put forth their points with ease and without hesitation, irrespective of the audience or the occasion.


We believe that every Podar student should be able to adapt to the global scenario that they would be a part of – the scenario that is in a constant state of flux – the scenario where change is the only constant. We train the wards in our charge to be steadfast in an ever changing environment and think out of the box, using their skills and core competence to make sure their success is not a probability but certainty.

Modern Citizens

We live in an age where technology has pervaded every single space, right from agriculture to aerospace, economics to policy. The Podar approach to learning imparts our future generations with the necessary technical know-how and the awareness of the fundamentals of each technology so they are unfazed by changes and always up to the challenge.

Good Human Beings

Last but not the least, we understand that integrity, values and standards are what separate the successful from true success. It is a matter of pride for Podar International School that we don’t just make our children knowledgeable – we nurture the little saplings of wisdom, inculcating values and standards that will help achieve not just numerical success but also win the hearts of the world along the way.
