Sri Sathya Sai Vidya Vihar was established in 1976, in Masab Tank (RBI training Centre & NMDC office now), Hyderabad, under the loving guidance of our Lord Bhagawan Baba. This school started functioning from June 1976, with 150 students, 5 teachers and four classes from III to VI. Soon after its inception, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba visited the school and blessed the students of this holy institution.
In 1983, we moved to a small bungalow in Shanthi Nagar in Masab Tank, where we spent almost 5 years.
Construction at the present site of the school started in 1987, and we moved here on 29th July 1988, which was the auspicious day of Guru Poornima.
Bhagawan Baba has always come to the school wherever we were, on every one of His visits to the twin cities. He indeed had much love for the children and the staff, and always made it a point to spend some time with them. The children had the opportunity to have a close Darshan of Bhagawan Baba and listen to his Divine discourses whenever Baba visited Vidya Vihar i.e., 1976, 1978, 1981, 1983, 1989 and 1992.
He visited the current campus twice. With His divine blessings, the school entered its silver jubilee year in this premises in July 2012.
The school is unique in the sense the students have the grace of Lord Sai Baba, and are blessed by the Divine to grow with the sense of fear for sin and faith in God.
