Primary School
Swami Akhandanandaji Maharaj started a lower-primary school in the Ashrama premises in the year 1900. In spite of their poverty, aggravated by the poor soil conditions and unpredictability of the monsoon, which necessitated the employment of children in the household and farms at an early age, many local peasants were persuaded by the Revered Maharaj to send their children to attend school. The School started receiving aid from the district board from 1901 and was upgraded successively to upper Primary.

Consequently, the upper primary school was converted into a Junior Basic School in 1956. Two more Junior Basic Schools were opened in 1959 and 1962. In all these schools an attempt is made to impart an all round education to boys and girls with the idea of implementing ‘man making and character building’ ideas of education as propounded by Swami Vivekananda.The schools follow the curriculum prescribed by the West Bengal Board of Primary Educational Council. It caters to the need of the boys and girls living in the nearby villages. Students are admitted to standard I every year and continue till 5th standard. There are three unit schools and each school has about 200 boys and girls. The schools have 3 separate libraries, administrative blocks, one playground and a children park. Daily mid-day meal, sponsored by the Government, is being provided to the students. The school has made an excellent tradition of good results over the year in Murshidabad district.
