Dnyanmata, Sangamner




Dnyanamata Vidyalaya is a Marathi-medium school and junior college in Sangamner, Ahmednagar Dist. It owes its existence to the hard work of Frs. Rudolph Schoch, John Baptist Thiel, Roder and Zinser. Fr. Zinser’s concept of a school was in the line of the Gymnasium with classical education in Latin and Greek. Fr. Schoch took over from Fr. Zinser, built the school and began enrollments in June 1948. Fr. Thiel introduced agriculture, bought 40 acres of land at various times, of which 29 acres are under cultivation. Fr. Edmund D’Souza started the Junior College in 1976. The schools of the neighbourhood did not compare in quality of education or discipline with Dnyanamata.


The District Fathers felt the need of an English medium school to improve the quality of student enrollment and to ensure better academic standard. Fr. Thomas Salve started the English medium in 1993 and presently, the school has its own premise upto Std. VII.
