Maruthi Vidyalaya (MV) is managed by qualified and experienced educationists and administrators. It began functioning at Subbayanapalya, Banaswadi, Bangalore-560033 in the year 1978 as a "Nursery School" in a very small room. Smt.Saroja Ganesh the "Founder Secretary & Correspondent " was the sole teacher. Thus it began as a "Single Teacher" Vidyalaya.
Government of Karnataka, accorded its recognition in 1979. Adding one addition class each academic year, it grew studily from "Nursery to Primay" and from "Primary to High School." Right from its inception in 1978, Maruthi Vidyalaya has dedicatedly and relentlessly worked for the cause of education & rural upliftment. It celebrated its "Silver Jubilee" in the year 2003 marking a historic event, a milestone in its growth and development.

All parents are invited to attend open houses as well as information sessions on the academic programmes, local educational opportunities and relevant developmental issues.
Volunteering at MV
MV considers itself very fortunate to have a unique base of parents with vast amount of experiences and perspectives that enrich the school. The expectation is that every family contributes volunteer hours in a way that is appropriate to their time constraints and skill set. This is consistent with the belief that the children benefit most from a school community in which families are involved in the life of the school
