It has been said that all life is education. Yes, without a doubt , education is enlightenment, attainment and accomplishment , it is edification more than erudition. If one realizes that learning is an elevating process of transformation , and that progress can be made in every little thing, one would never stop learning……, provided progress is guided by the soul and not subjected to habits, conventions or pre-conceived ideas. The realization that true youthfulness lies in one’s aspiration to continue to hone one’s faculties and develop one’s capacities all through one’s life , will give a different meaning and interest to life itself. Schools are merely a preparation to make youth capable of thinking , studying, progressing and becoming intelligent. But it is only when schools cater to the many processes from the physical to the psychical and ensure the realization of consciousness as well, that they fulfill the most important aim of education, that is to bring about human and social transformation. This is the bedrock on which the edifice of Pragnya Bodhini High School proudly stands. At PBHS, we aspire to create a system of education that can truly empower our children to understand inwardly and outwardly, the challenges of the world they confront, to enable them to dream of beauty, of greatness and perfection, to make them aware of the fact that the choices they make today will create the world they shall inherit tomorrow. Our modern culture has become a culture of extravagance and endless wants. Man has become a slave of his wants and desires. There is a need to look within. For it is the inner self-knowledge that is the pathway to mastery in all domains from the material to the spiritual. It is this,that we strive to enrich our children with an ethical self culture aimed at developing will and character, leading to self discipline and finally self mastery. Today it is imperative that education must instill the value of peace. We need to build a culture of peace as the foundation for human life. Peace, not as an abstract concept far removed from our daily lives, but as a seed planted and cultivated in the reality of daily living , in the depths of our being throughout our lives. If the education provided to the youth of today can encourage them to nurture in themselves a love for each other , a love for nature, a love for beauty and creativity, it will awaken within them the idea of giving expression to a conduct that is always beautiful , refined and noble, capable of fostering a universal culture of peace , harmony and world unity. What I want to emphasize is best expressed in the word of the Mother : “ To know is good, To live is better, To be, that is perfect.”Our revered founder Shri Shukla consecrated all of himself – soul, life, work – to this School when he conceived of an institution which would embody the highest ideals of education . We strive continuously, to live up to his noble ideals. PBHS epitomizes the great potential of our students, past and present and is a reflection of the commendable efforts of an enthusiastic and talented faculty. My heartiest congratulations to all who have partnered in the success of PBHS .

In this age of the prefix Saint and suffix International, this school has carved its own niche in the western suburbs of Mumbai.
Started in two small dingy rooms in the year 1959 with just a handful of students, Mr. Shukla the founder, envisioned this small sapling taking firm root and branching into a sturdy oak- like institution that would lay the foundation for many a successful lives for many a generations to come.
He recognized the needs of the changing times and hence the school that had initially started with only a Gujrathi medium opened up its first English medium division under the able guidance of Mrs. Ruth Rose, in the year 1974. Today we boast of 1500 students on the rolls, also catering to the lower - middle class and middle class children. Though the medium of instruction is English, the school has always honoured and followed the Indian tradition and heritage and functioned within the parameters of the Indian Culture. Today, learning has reached new heights and colours. Many of the so called wonders of yesteryears have become obsolete and even meaningless. The world is progressing by leaps and bounds. The modern student is struggling with innumerable odds in this highly competitive world and in our recklessly fast pace of progress several human values are ignored and even neglected. But we at Pragnya Bodhini believe that no society or people or nation can progress unless the values of life are rightly imbibed by the human mind, hence we give prime importance to human values above academics.
The lessons of love understanding, tolerance and secularism are imparted to the students in a joyful way. We have taken up the noble but mammoth task of nation building, and we are sure that we will achieve our goal with the help of our well wishers.
A strict disciplinarian, a quick decision maker and a great humanitarian, Mr. G.R.SHUKLA was the first to sow the seeds of Pragnya Bodhini High School. We, the clan of Pragnya Bodhini High School,abide to fulfill the aspirations and ideals of our dear Shukla Sir, who left for his heavenly abode on 16th Feb. 2007, but whose memories will always be enshrined in our hearts
Our chairman, Shri. Chirag Shaikh is our mentor who provides inspiration and direction to all under his care. His zeal, fervour and enthusiasm are a source of motivation for the staff. His ceaseless efforts and selfless contribution has enabled the school to reach the high summit of glory and grow from strength to strength.
