Nashik, Maharashtra

Premier Co-educational, Residential cum Day School

Our school is located near Anjaneri village, on a mound which is surrounded by symmetrical and asymmetrical fold mountains of the Western Ghats (Sahyadri). The land form is associated with second order endogenous processes, i.e. mountains and plateaus. The place has a large area on its top and it has a flat or undulating surface. Its sides are marked by steep and gentle slopes which are surrounded by high mountains. The land forms of the place are layered with stand stones, shale and lime stones. The slope of the topography is towards east. Small streams, rivulets and waterfalls are found in this area. The place is formed due to lava eruption from the interior of the earth covering an extensive land surface called as the plateau of accumulation.

Though it lies on the leeward side of the Western Ghats, the place is cool, and it receives moderate rainfall in the monsoon season. The hard crust and uneven terrain doesn’t permit the use of canals and wells of irrigation, but it has a rain harvesting unit to ensure the irrigation and domestic water supplies. Podsols, tropical black soil and a couple of other types of soils primarily originating in the volcanic activities are found in the neighbourhood. The soil becomes sticky when it is wet, but it develops cracks when it dries. The school is surrounded by communities that have varied and rich religious and ethnic interests; whose main occupation in agriculture. The major crops cultivated in the farms are paddy, vegetables like tomato, cauliflower, cabbage, green chili, bitter gourd, pumpkins, green leafy vegetables and some fodder crops.
