We are very happy that we have chosen Ganges Valley for our daughters. We were very concerned last year since this is the first school experience for our children in India. Ganges has ensured a smooth transition for them.
Dr. Gokaraju Ganga Raju is an eminent educationist, philanthropist and social engineer. A born leader and optimist, he is known for his dynamism, quick thinking and decision making skills and for his compassion and empathy. He leads by example and believes in the Gandhian credo, “Be the change you wish to see in this world.”
Discerning the need for quality education, Dr. Ganga Raju established the Gokaraju Ranga Raju Educational Society (GRES) in 1997, in memory of his father, the Late Sri Gokaraju Ranga Raju garu. Under its aegis, he started the Gokaraju Ranga Raju Institute of Engineering and Technology(GRIET) in the same year, followed by the Gokaraju Ranga Raju College of Pharmacy(GRCP) in 2003. Both these institutions have raised the bar in technical education and pharmaceutical training respectively.
Mulling at great length over the standards of school education, Dr Ganga Raju felt the need, once again – this time in the field of primary and secondary education – for excellence in this sector and thus was born, ‘Ganges Valley School’, in 2012. Affiliated to the CBSE, the School, in its pursuit of excellence, seeks to provide an ambience to its students that will inculcate in them an ‘international’ outlook, while taking pride in their nationality. Further, the School strives to create, foster and nurture in the Ganges Community – students, staff and parents alike – a culture of learning that inspires them to explore with an indomitable spirit of adventure, the ever expanding horizons of knowledge and education.
A sports enthusiast, Dr Ganga Raju loves all games, particularly cricket and has ensured that the School has been equipped with all the necessary facilities to ensure not just the intellectual health but the physical health as well of all its students.

His exceptional people skills have enabled him to create resounding goodwill and respect for himself and GRES. G.V.K. Ranga Raju takes care of all the day-to-day matters concerning GRES, and promptly addresses the concerns of the parents and students. He believes in a no-compromise policy, when it comes to personal supervision of educational institutions and in maintaining academic schedule & discipline. Extraordinarily gifted and tech savvy, he understands the importance of technology in today’s fast paced world. He believes in exposing children to cutting edge technology so that they are equipped to not just face the challenges of the modern day living but become leaders in their own right. For him education is a journey of discovery. It does not mean providing children with ready made solutions but instead making children self reliant and independent individuals who have the courage to make their own path rather than choosing the often beaten track.
