In 1860, three great visionaries - Waman Prabhakar Bhave, Vasudev Balwant Phadke and Laxman Narhar Indapurkar came together to plant a seed of an idea. The idea was profound considering the pre-independence era of India.

The three reformists resolved to establish an educational platform that would generate a strong character and lofty ideals amongst youngsters, and one that nurtures nationalism.

In 1874 The `Poona Native Institution` took shape as their joint efforts. The institution imparted conventional, contemporary education.

Over the last 150 years MES has over 77 institutions with a strength of 40,000+ students, teachers and administrative staff.

With a view to impart quality education to the rural parts, besides having top colleges, schools and institutes in the city of Pune, MES has expanded to Saswad, Baramati, Panvel, Belapur, Kalamboli, Shirwal, Kasar Amboli, Ahmednagar and even far into the relatively underdeveloped regions like Chiplun in Konkan.

What started as a single seed has now grown into a massive tree - the 'Dnyan Vruksha'.
