Mahesh Shri Ramakrishna Ashram Math, established on 2nd January, 1952, by Swami Premghanananda Maharaj, flourished gradually in the heart of Rishra with all its rich cultural, spiritual, and Ashramik ideologies. Swami Premghanananda was the direct disciple of Swami Shivananda Maharaj, the 2nd President of BelurRamkrishna Math and Mission. Swami Premghanananda undertook the courage to establish an institution only to fulfill his dream that every child of the locality should be privileged to have basic education. Initially the land was very small for the project but his mission was huge. Not only that, he also engaged himself in "Kishore Bangla", a periodical magazine for children where he tried to teach them the norms of an ideal life, the social and cultural heritage of the nation and so many motivational things, but all in a very easy terms with full of literary essence. That was the beginning. From then on, this institution has gone through continuous progress and is now considered as one of the renowned academic institutions in Hooghly District.

Remembering the ideals of the Founder of this institution, Mahesh Shri Ramakrishna Ashram Math believes in a joyful, experimental learning system, wherein the students get the chance to be motivated to grab every opportunity that comes their way, which would not only help them in their holistic growth, but also strengthen their beliefs in team work and friendships. They need to understand the importance of emotional balance, critical thinking, and most importantly to accept failure graciously! It is our strife to endow them with all these qualities and more. We believe in empowering our students in such a manner that they can act as representatives of a meaningful and value-based society. We have a team of fabulous faculty members, who ensures the ethos of our institution shining brightly. At Mahesh Shri Ramakrishna Ashram Math, each day that unfolds, is a wonder and miracle as our students are engaged in multi-skilled activities and as they do, the experiences simultaneously fuel the emotional, social, intellectual, physical and ethical development. At Mahesh Shri Ramakrishna Ashram Math, we enjoy this journey with our students reliving and rediscovering the magic of learning.

We are aligned with the thoughts of Swami Vivekananda:

"Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there undigested all your life. We must have life-building, man-making, character-making, assimilation of ideas. If you have assimilated five ideas and made them your life and character, you have more education than any man, who has got by heart a whole library."
