Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself~ John Dewey
Education is the heartthrob of any civilized society.In 1942, when India was still under colonial rule, the need of education became all the more crucial. Realizing this the visionaries of Malad and Kandivli areas came together and established Malad Kandivli Education Society. Harbouring the dream ofproviding high standard education, Malad Kandivli Education Society founded Sheth Nahalchand Laloochand High School in 1942-43
Dedicated to the cause of education; the Malad Kandivli Education Society expanded its branches and established many new educational institutions. It has groomed many young minds into responsible citizens over these many years. Thousands of students have gone out of its portals and today occupy important positions in the Society. In its 60 years of existence, the society has achieved many milestones and one such significant milestone of the Society was the establishment of the College in July 1983
