Mother’s Public School was established in 1991 as Prakrit, a pre-school with strength of
about 17 students and 4 teachers. Over the years, it has grown to a Senior Secondary School
with a strength of about 2100 students. The ideology behind starting the school was to cater
to the needs of working mothers and it was launched as the first day-boarding school in
the city. From the beginning, the school has focused on providing career-oriented education
along with moral values and invaluable life skills. Over the last 25 years, the institution has
become one of the leading educational institutions not only of the state of Odisha but also of
the country. The alumni have gone on to pursue careers at various educational hubs of the
world—from Masters in Law and Forensic Science in London to Engineering in Australia. Ms.
Poly, the founder, is the visionary behind the school. She started her career as a school teacher
at the age of 22 and went on to become a lecturer at Kamla Nehru College, Bhubaneswar
where she worked for 20 years.

schools, dancing, reading and interacting with
people; it is a life well spent. This, at times, feels

“A mind that knows how to synthesize a viable reality from an unexplored imagination and
a heart that orchestrates its own melody is what every young soul yearns and prays for. For
a soul as such, I can vouch that this school is the shrine that can grant us these wishes.
Besides having provided us with the finest teachers and delivering ample scope for our holistic
