In late eighties and early nineties a thought flashed across the productive eyes of a few friends who met over a cup of tea. They were lost and time knew no bounds – personality, status, wealth, education and life changing truth forming the back drop.
“coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success” is a popular quote.
Thoughts merged, formed seeds – when spoken landed at Chikoti Garden, Begumpet, which sprouted as “Little Scholar School, in the year 1991. The journey of the school started with the intention of imparting quality and value based education at an affordable cost, and to stand committed to transparency, excellence & integrity in all its endeavors to reach its goal.
LSS was the initiative of My Home Education Society headed by Dr. Rameswar Rao.J, constituted by Prof. P. Purusotham Rao, with Prof. H. Venkateshwarulu, (advisory board), Associate Prof. Dept of Commerce, OU, now Prof & Director of CDE, K. Sagar Rao garu, Dr. M. Sachit Ananda Rao garu , K. Rama Rao garu, as members.
Knowledge finds the path, wisdom lights its way through, to fine tune leaders for the future.
Being the motto of the school, Mr. Janaki Ramaiah, as the first Principal and with five students on the first day, the graph went steep to cross the century mark in the first academic year. The success was cherished and celebrated as the first Annual day of the school with Shri D.

The commitment, discipline and the systematic approach of Mrs. Aruna Gupta, as Principal from the year 1994 onwards succeeded in obtaining the major tasks of affiliation of the school to CBSE Board in the year 1996. That was a hallmark in the history of the school and the first batch of 9 students appeared for class X Board exam that year. They procured cent percent pass result for the school and this trend is achieved till date.
In the academic session 2014-15 – a batch of 47 students appeared for the Board exam and the management & staff received appreciation letters from the HRD Minister Mrs. Smriti Irani congratulating the management and the staff members on their tremendous efforts.
