Today Primary School has four classes and nearly 180 students on its roll. The School is recognized and aided by the B.M.C. Though Kannada Primary Schools everywhere in Mumbai face decline in enrolment, it has maintained a steady strength over a decade. VPM also started Balwadi in Kannada in 1999. Smt Aruna Bhat is the Head of the School.

Now there are in all Five Teachers and Two Non-Teaching staff in the School. Though under Right to Education Act 2009, Federal /State Governments are to provide free and compulsory primary- education, BMC insists private aided primary schools to charge fees in the range of Rs 15-20. Majority of students in our Kannada Balwadi and Primary School come from economically poor classes. VPM supports these childrenís education by half freeships, provision of school uniforms and bus travel support to reach the school as they come from distant places. School encourages children to excel in academic and extracurricular activities. There are 54 endowments to award every year freeships and prizes to the deserving children. Well-wishers are invited to support the cause of education. Donation form (download file). While English is taught from the first standard, school pays special attention to children with educational disabilities. Now we have also introduced Semi-English medium – teaching Science and Maths in English.

Kannada High School

In 1962 there was an acute need for educational facilities in Kannada Medium especially after the students came out from VII Std. of Municipal Schools. It was recognised by the Government of Maharashtra on unaided basis. Beginning with 4 classes - V to VIII with only 84 students the School rapidly grew in the later years. In 1966 the first batch of students appeared for the XI Std. Examination.

In the initial years, the School was run in the premises of S.M.P.R. School in the morning shift. The authorities of the S.M.P.R. Shala not only permitted us to use their building and facilities but also did not charge any rent for a long period of 14 years. Since then, however the Mandal was able to raise funds through donations, bank loans and grants from Karnataka Government to put-up its own School Building. The building with ground floor was occupied in 1972, thereby raising the confidence of the Committee to march ahead. The first phase of School Building with ground plus three floors and an Auditorium together costing Rs. 25 lakhs was completed by 1983.

Kannada School has at present one division each in V to VII and two divisions each in VIII to X. School is affiliated to Maharashtra State Secondary Education Board.
