The Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Kolkata and the Satikanta Guha Foundation came to an understanding in 2014 that the Foundation would set up a school within the IISER Kolkata campus (Mohanpur) for the benefit of the children of the members of the staff of IISER as also of people living in neighbouring areas.
The School, comprising of only eight classes from Nursery I to Class V was inaugurated on 30 March 2015 by Prof R. N. Mukherjee, Director, IISER, in the presence of guardians, members of staff of IISER Kolkata, GHS, GHIS, GHS-IISER Kolkata and guests.
The School began holding classes from 31 March 2015.
The School, which was initially located at temporary premises formerly occupied by IISER Kolkata, shifted from Academic Session 2016 – 17 to a new and separate building, which is being constructed on a three-acre plot within the IISER Kolkata campus. This building is expected to accommodate all classes from Nursery I to Class X.
