On the 15th of September, 1902, Smt. Mahadevi, the wife of an eminent lawyer of Dehradun began teaching six young girls at her residence. It was a bold and courageous step taken by a woman of vision, who realised that India could not take its place among the nations of the world, without educating its daughters. Mahadeviji’s husband Shri Jyoti Swaroop supported her wholeheartedly and formed a Kanya Pathshala Trust and Society and moved the school from her residence to independent premises on Lytton Road. In 1911, Shri Jyoti Swaroopji gifted about 100 bighas of land to the school and from then classes were held in the campus, that later became the MKP Intermediate College Office. The Pathshala was among the first schools in India to impart education along cultural lines according to the ideals of the Arya Samaj and run almost exclusively by women. Apart from teaching, Smt. Mahadevi remained the Superintendent of the School till her demise in 1914. Thereafter, the school had capable headmistresses who ensured its development.
