About Our School

Education should be the biggest and best adventure in a child’s life. Smt. Godavari Devi Saraf Senior Secondary School is one among the best equipped in the near vicinity of Vizianagaram District.

It is one of those few educational institutions in this region that has traversed a journey of more than 50 years and yet remained contemporary competitive and relevant.

A carefully planned academic and non academic curriculum ensures a thorough understanding of basic concepts, thus laying a strong foundation for a sound education.

SGS aims to provide a world class education, on the basis of secularism, liberalism, development of self discipline and moral character in the students.

SGS’s origins go back to the sixth decade of 20th century with the establishment of the Sreeram Modern School in present day Shreeramnagar on August 15th 1965.SGS started its mission with a few students. Smt.Promila Saraf, the founder of SGS shaped this institution with a firm determination, devotion, loyalty and selfless love.

SGS, Shreeramnagar is committed to nurturing the self development of students, tapping the abilities of each individual. SGS creates an atmosphere in which the students gain confidence to stand on their feet, take their own decisions and reach the pinnacle of success.

SGS derives its brand image from institutional reliability, quality of education, services offered, delivery of commitments and all above the trust of parents.

SGS has played a very important role in developing India’s rural region by providing quality and contemporary education for modernizing the country’s human resources.

The school is a place where children are encouraged to say,

"I see it, I get it, I can do it."

In this era of cut throat competition, it is of great importance to impart an integrated education to the future citizens of the Nation for successfully facing multitasking. The SGS, therefore lays special emphasis on both co-curricular and extracurricular activities providing students an edge over others to be a leader in their respective field of activity.

We believe that students, parents and teachers play a vital role in helping students reach their greatest potential. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the many resources available to them - their teachers, the library, the computer lab and the smart classes.

In the words of Goethe – there are only two testing bequests we can hope to give our children – one of them is roots the other is wings.
