Jogeshwari Kelavani Mandal's Smt. Surajba Vidya Mandir
was founded in 1969 by visionaries who laid the foundation of an educational institution with an intent to give formal education to those students who lived in and around Jogeshwari –East.
In the wake of a few tragic accidents at the Amboli railway crossing the school was established on the other side of the railway tracks as a service to the community at large, where no schools existed. Mr. M.I Patel, Mr.J.C Vakil, Mr.Rashmikant Desai, Mr. Ramesh Merchant, Mr. Kanubhai Mehta, Mr. Shirish Patel, Mr.Vitthaldas Parekh and many more
undertook the challenge of establishing this institution.
