    In the year 1902, Shri Keshvrao Patwardhan, and Shri Narayanrao Patwardhan and with some of their relatives and well-wishers, established an educational institute, then named as PATWARDHAN MIDDLE SCHOOL. Although starting with only a handful of students, due to the high standards of education, personal attention and discipline, this institution was well received by students and parents and was on a growth path. Conducting the classes at various rented places, the school moved into a specious permanent location where the school and its other institutions are now located. In the year 1935 the school was re-named as PATWARDHAN HIGH SCHOOL. Patwardhan High school conducted classes from 5th to 11 th (old SSC) standards.

Patwardhan Highschool Introduction

    In the year 1947 Bharat Shikshan mandal was formed and Patwardhan brothers handed over the school to the Mandal in 1952.

    Subsequently, realizing the needs, the Mandal added new educational institutions and now we have facilities from the Play School to Junior College. We also have established certain add-on facilities, such Computer Education for our students from the 1st to 10th standards,Gurukul,etc.

     Shri Keshavrao Patwardhan was actively associated with the school, right from its inspection till his death in 1936. After his demise, his well educated and trained sons, shri Shankarrao and Achyutrao Patwardhan ably carried on his mission, till their retirement and even therafter. Both put in untiring efforts in the growth of the school and to achieve respect and high standing for the school.  Due to the dedicated and self-less efforts, personal attention, and broad vision of this duo and exemplary discipline in the school and the whole-hearted support of their team of teachers, Patwardhan High School was a well known and highly respected educational institution in Kokan area and this attracted more and more students to this school
