Mahajana Education Society

The history of Mahajana Education Society dates back to the times of our nation's independence movement under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, at a time when education was scarce and institutions were few. Visionaries of Mysore like Sri Amble Subramanyam Iyer, Sri AgaramSatyanarayana Pandit, Sri  G. Ranganna, M.N. Sri  Jois and Sri  M.N. Ramachandra Jois got together to establish the Mahajana High School on 30th June 1937. Sri.Rattehalli Ramappa carried the mission successfully through its various growth phases. With this modest beginning  institution has grown with time and culminated in the establishment of the Post Graduate Centre in the year 1999-2000. This mighty educational institution offers schooling from primary to the post-graduate level spread across six educational centres.
