Back in 1963, there were hardly any schools teaching beyond class four. Children wanting to study class 5th to 7th had to either go to Attibele, Hebbagodi, Muthanallur or Anekal. Small kids were forced to walk their way to school for want of vehicles. Many children, especially girls dropped out of the school for the same reason. High school education was available only at Attibele, Anekal and Bangalore. A few like-minded people from neighbouring villages of Chandapura, deliberated on the situation and met at Sri Kodanda Rama Swamy Temple at Chandapura on 07/06/1963. Under the stewardship of Dr. N Rajappa, MBBS, Neraluru, after prolonged discussions, it was decided to initiate a High School from the academic year 1963-64. A Management Committee was constituted. The founders of the society were Sri. Thimmaraya Reddy, President, Chandapura Grama Panchayat, Secretary was Sri. Patel Bidda Reddy, Thirumagondanahalli, Vice President, Neralur Grama Panchayat. Treasurer was Sri.H.Thimmayya Reddy, President of Ramasagara Grama Panchayat, Vice President was Sri P.Venkataramana Reddy and Sri R. Thimma Reddy, BA was choosen as correspondent. 23 members were choosen unanimously to lead the historic management Committee. SVRE Society got registered and recognised by the Government of Karnataka in 1963.
Divine Inspiration and Philanthropic zeal lead the founder President to donate 15 Guntas(i.e 16335sqft) of land for the construction of a school building. The land was registered on 05/11/1964 at the Sub Register office. This laid a strong foundation for the start of the school. Classes for 8th, started with 67 students at the room provided by our director Sri K Muni Reddy. Chandapura. Later at the site of Kodanda Rama Swamy Temple premises.
