Mr. D.S. Saini


“The aim of education should be to preserve and nurture the yearning for learning that a child is born with”

W Edwards Deming

Over the last few years, Mt Olympus has evolved into an institution recognised for its comprehensive ecosystem that fosters a love for learning and all-round excellence.

As we look at expanding our presence from a pioneering educational institution to a chain of educational centres of excellence, we look at empowering these centres with our unique vision of blending traditionaland modern systems of education to provide a solid bedrock for learning, innovation and ethical leadership. Each of our school would nurture students into lifelong learners and future leaders who are well placed to contribute extensively to humanity and society in their chosen fields.

We are committed to grooming leaders in every field- academics, sports, arts as well as innovation. And we strive to achieve this with positive, progressive and constructive engagement with all stakeholders including parents, teachers, and strategic learning partners.

We focus on identifying the unique skill-set of each child, fostering their inquisitiveness and nurturing them in a joyous environment to help them thrive as unique individuals. We aspire for all-round excellence and grooming our students to develop their life-skills, thereby proving a strong pedestal for their future.

Mount Olympus encapsulates the belief that ‘sky is the limit’. We also believe that excellence is a habit that can be cultivated and enables each child to be the best version to themselves!
