Sri Sathya Sai Vidya Vihar was established in 1976, in Masab Tank (RBI training Centre & NMDC office now), Hyderabad, under the loving guidance of our Lord Bhagawan Baba. This school started functioning from June 1976, with 150 students, 5 teachers and four classes from III to VI. Soon after its inception, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba visited the school and blessed the students of this holy institution.
In 1983, we moved to a small bungalow in Shanthi Nagar in Masab Tank, where we spent almost 5 years.
Construction at the present site of the school started in 1987, and we moved here on 29th July 1988, which was the auspicious day of Guru Poornima.
Bhagawan Baba has always come to the school wherever we were, on every one of His visits to the twin cities. He indeed had much love for the children and the staff, and always made it a point to spend some time with them. The children had the opportunity to have a close Darshan of Bhagawan Baba and listen to his Divine discourses whenever Baba visited Vidya Vihar i.e., 1976, 1978, 1981, 1983, 1989 and 1992.
He visited the current campus twice. With His divine blessings, the school entered its silver jubilee year in this premises in July 2012.
The school is unique in the sense the students have the grace of Lord Sai Baba, and are blessed by the Divine to grow with the sense of fear for sin and faith in God.

Located in an expanse of 5 acres, the school campus boasts of rare tranquility and greenery in the centre of the bustling city of Hyderabad. A 2-acre sports ground is located inside as well.
The school has a pretty spacious sports ground, where boys and girls of all ages are encouraged to build their sporting skills. Our sports facility also consists of various sports equipment.
A Smart Class is a state-of-the-art approach to teaching, in which technology is brought inside the classroom in an effort to let teachers connect better with students. Sri Sathya Sai Vidya Vihar has tied up with M/S Educomp Solutions to implement this concept in our premises, using smart boards, LCD projectors and screens.
The technology helps teachers draw up lesson plans, create lessons, use audio-visual aids (including 2D and 3D animations, graphics, audio and video) to augment their traditional ways of teaching, and eventually engage better with children. Educomp smartclass has, in particular, enabled teachers to teach abstract concepts as well as fact-rich subjects like history with ease.
The library is equipped with about 6,000 books, including educational books, fictional reading, and popular children’s series, from The Hardy Boys to Harry Potter to Chandamama.
The school has a well-equipped science laboratory for students to understand how science practically works. Experiments in biology, chemistry and physics are regularly conducted for our students, who are also sometimes allowed to conduct experiments themselves.
Computer science is a vital subject in any education system. The school has a computer lab well-equipped with machines. Every child has access to a computer once a week. We impart training in basic programming and Internet skills.
The school has a vast, spacious auditorium, that is the nerve centre of all our important functions, including meetings, cultural events and all group activities that students take part in. It is here that cultural programs are held and visitors address students.
The school is constructing a new block in order for us to have a dedicated space for creative expression by our students. The new block will have adequate space and facilities for classes and activities in dance, music and other traditional fine arts.
We have an audio-visual (AV) room with an LCD projector and a TV connection with special educational channels customized for schools. This is where students are exposed to enriching audio-visual material from around the world, including educational documentaries and children’s films.
The school is self-sufficient in terms of transport. The school has two buses accommodating about 30 students each, plying two trips. The buses are mainly meant for students from distant areas.
Extra Curricular Activities
Students of Sri Sathya Sai Vidya Vihar are dynamic, spirited and always keen to make the best use of the varied opportunities that today’s schooling environment provides them. We encourage them to take part in various extra-curricular activities that let them compete with students from other schools. Prestigious inter-district games and international talent competitions are a few of the platforms that have seen our students occupy some top positions, bringing laurels to their families and the school.
