Inspired by the ideals and teachings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother a group of devotees of Salt Lake, Kolkata, started an Association named Sri Aurobindo Institute of Education with a view to spreading their message in all spheres of society. This Association was registered under West Bengal Societies Registration Act, 1961.
As part of their initiatives the Association established this school, bearing the same name, in 1983 at BK Block, Sector – II, Salt Lake. Subsequently the school was extended to CL Block on two bighas of land. At present classes I through Class XII are held in this new building, named Miranka, whereas the Nursery, Lower & Upper Kindergarten classes are held in the BK Block building. The medium of instruction is English. The School is managed by the Association through a Governing Body that functions as its executive wing.
The primary aim of the school is comprehensive development of the personality and character of the students as envisaged by Sri Aurobindo & the Mother, besides providing formal education as per the syllabi approved by the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, New Delhi, which the school is affiliated with.
