Our Past

Goenka & Associates Educational Trust was established in the year 1983, to set up educational institutions , primary, secondary and undergraduate levels to provide quality education to the upcoming generation.

With Gokuldham High School & Jr. College being the first one was founded on July 2, 1983. Making a humble beginning in a rented premises with 3 students and 5 staff members, the school has now grown into a multi-storey structure with 3380 students and 200 staff members.

To cater to the local needs, Yashodham High school was started in 1987 with a handful of students of the Marathi Medium in the Pre-Primary and Primary Sections. As the locality developed, the English Medium was started in 1990 as an extension of the Gokuldham High School, with a Pre-Primary and a Primary (Std. I , II , III) Section.
