The Maharashtra Cosmopolitan Education Society’s English Medium Primary School, Azam Campus, Pune was established in the year 1964.
The school was initially headed by Mr. Y. D. Khan, Ex-Registrar of Aligarh Muslim University and Pune University, who was then President of M.C.E. Society, Mr. Ismail Omar, member of Governing Board was the first Chairman of the School Committee and Mrs. Roshni Mehta was the first Headmistress of the School. Mr. Y. D. Khan secured permission from the Education Department- Zilla Parishad, Pune to start an English Medium School on the present Azam Campus.
The school started functioning in an old bungalow which was later demolished to construct Senior College Library and Roghay Girls Hostel.
The school worked in two shifts for lack of accommodation. (Nursery and Kindergarten during the morning session and classes I to IV during the afternoon). A meagre fee of Rs.10/- per month was charged and education was imparted to children of all communities irrespective of their religion, caste and creed.
Subsequently, the English Medium Primary School was recognized by the Zilla Parishad, Pune as an unaided English Medium Primary School in the year 1966.
Dr. P. A. Inamdar – Present President of the M.C.E. Society, has played an important role in improving the infrastructure of the school by constructing a fully furnished new school building in the year 1994 on its present location.
From a school of 6 teachers and 82 students, it has grown to a school of nearly 115 qualified staff members (Teaching & Non-Teaching) and nearly 2635 students. The school now boasts of having classes from P. Nursery to Std XII.
