Founder's Vision


Education sans values is no education at all. That is the tenet upon which MEC Institutions has built excellence. The ICSE School too shares this outlook. The founder of MEC Institutions is Smt. Vishalakshamma, a popular teacher in one of Bangalore’s well known schools, during the 1960s. With her subject expertise and a commitment to share knowledge, she was acknowledged as an inspiring teacher. However, hailing from rural region, Smt. Vishalakshamma was always sensitive to the needs of the village folk. Her priorities always lay with the needs of the rural poor and the downtrodden. Her thinking was simple: the rich can afford to get education. It is the less-cared-for-in-society who are always in danger of being marginalised, she felt.

Smt. Vishalakshamma worked with the vision of bringing modern education coupled with timeless Indian values. She believed that our rich cultural and traditional background can create the base for a stable and educated society that can build the base for a balanced growth. More importantly, she was committed to making excellence in education affordable to all.

Inculcating values from early childhood is a core priority for us.
