HISTORY

Vivek High School was established on April 04, 1984 and is being run under the auspices of the Bhagwant Singh Charitable Trust, which has been in existence since November 30, 1974.
The school is co-educational and the medium of instruction is English. Within a year of its inception,the school was affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi . Since the inception of the school in April 1984, the total number of students has grown from 58 to 1678 and the teaching faculty is of 120 Staff Members. We pride ourselves in producing young adults who have social awareness and leadership qualities.
We have restricted numbers in the classroom and try to cater to individual needs of the student. Community service is an essential part of the curriculum, in which awareness of India's rich Indian culture is consciously developed. This has to be achieved without sacrificing academic excellence, which is not always easy, but it is what the school stands
for.


Late Sardar Bhagwant Singh, an eminent engineer and industrialist, set up this trust in the year 1974.

Sardar Bhagwant Singh a visionary, visualized an institution where learning would be a joy, where values and traditions would be upheld, where the quest for knowledge, advancement and improvement would be the goal of every youngster. He hoped that all these ambitions would find their fulfillment in a school, which would be devoted to its cause.
