About the School
Modern School is one of the most sought after schools in the city. The School has a long history dating back to 20th October 1920 when Lala Raghubir Singh founded the school with the aid of his father who gave him Rs 5000/- and a rent free house in Daryaganj to start the school. The school functioned out of Daryaganj till 4th Jan 1933 when it shifted to Barakhamba Road. Subsequently the junior school was shifted to a new building in Humayun Road in October 1961 and renamed as the Raghubir Singh Junior Modern School (RSJMS). RSJMS is a completely autonomous unit that functions independently. Students study in RSJMS till Class V and subsequently at Modern School Barakhamba Road. The management subsequently opened another school at Vasant Vihar.

Both the schools at Barakhamba Road and Vasant Vihar have a very distinguished alumni list with ex- students featuring in the top ranks of industrialists, professionals and politicians. The alumni networks of both the schools are very old as is evidenced by the fact that the schools are the only ones in Delhi whose application forms have separate columns for parent and grandparent alumni details.
