Rewa Coal Field's English Medium School was conceptualized in 1962 with six students on its roll. The beginning was extremely humble with no infrastructure. The tutorials play-way method of instructions started in the vacant rooms of General Manager's Bungalow located at Sohagpur Area, Chachai, District Anuppur, M.P. It was initiated for the welfare of children of employees of coal mines.
Smt. Prabha Krishnan founded the school with the motive to bring English within the reach of common people of area and incidentally this school became the first English medium school of unified district of Anuppur, Shahdol and Umaria. School rose steadfastly with strength rising year after year. With the steadily rising strength the need for a new building was felt and thus The General Manager of Sohagpur area, Dhanpuri granted permission for construction of a building for running the school. The new building was constructed near Sports Stadium of Dhanpuri. A self recognized governing body constituted of officers and employees of Western Coalfields Limited (Now South Eastern Coalfields Limited) was constituted to look over the activities of school. Due to ongoing mining activities the building came under the surveyed danger zone. Fearing collapse of the building and keeping in mind the lives of small children, again a new building was constructed near the Railway Colony, Dhanpuri.
