During the seven-year program, starting from class 4, the students not only become proficient in subjects in meeting the needs of an ICSE exam at the end of class 10, but also become acquainted with traditional arts, craft, music and dance. A well-stocked library with carefully selected books ensures adequate opportunity for reading. Well-equipped laboratories, computer facilities and audio-visual equipment are resources that further enrich learning.
The school, while not encouraging competition in the form currently accepted by society, endeavours to create an atmosphere where students can excel. Classes are intentionally small to provide close contact between teacher and students where student motivation and participation become essential. An expectation of courtesy, kindness, and mutual respect helps to create an atmosphere where students can take the initiative required for active learning.

It was Krishnamurti's oft-expressed wish that there should be a school in Western India. This wish was realized during the Birth Centenary year of Krishnamurti with the commencement of Sahyadri School in September, 1995.
Krishnamurti had been coming to Mumbai from 1948 to 1985 giving public talks and interviews. He had also been to Pune on three occasions. The region had felt and expressed the need for a Krishnamurti School. The vision for a school in Western India was born in response to this long felt need. The late Shri Achyut Patwardhan's tireless efforts and generous assistance from several well-wishers saw this vision turn into reality by November, 1994.
