At the Lokhandwala Foundation School we see it as our responsibility to make every student develop his or her capabilities to the fullest.
Everything that a student needs is made available. From inspiring the students through examples to empowering them with the freedom to choose their own paths to success, we ensure that they have the best of foundations possible to get head start on life.

Our Chairperson, Mrs. T. S. Lokhandwala's Message
Every vision emanates from an inspiration. We find our inspiration from the essence of Indian tradition - Sanskar.
Every experience in a person's life sows itself as a 'sanskaar' within the person. Every 'sanskaar' is nothing but a seed that germinates in its own time, in the right soil, with the right condition. What greater joy could a gardener experience than one that comes from being able to work with the most fertile soils? Curious minds are fertile soils on which the present can plant the seeds that will shape the landscape of the future. Education is undoubtedly the most crucial parameter in shaping the future.
Lokhandwala Foundation School is the manifestation of a long standing dream of making education an experience a 'sanskaar'. We strive to elevate the mind, body and soul of every student. Our school is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities to provide our students with nothing but the best. Our curriculum and our outstanding team of teachers not only impart knowledge of the highest standard but also shape and build personalities. We work the hardest on inculcating a value system and building conscience-driven decision making such that in today's fast-paced materialistic society, our students have the strength to walk the path of righteousness even when faced with temptations.
We are proud to see our students evolving into well-informed, intelligent and consciously-awakened citizens with well-rounded personalities. They have made our endeavor worth while and have inspired us to take our institution to far greater heights of excellence. We continue on this never ending journey of liberating minds from ignorance...of giving "freedom through education".
In keeping with the vision of our Chairman, the late Mr. S. T. Lokhandwala, the Lokhandwala Foundation School & Junior College firmly believes in preparing its students to boldly face the challenges that await them in life. It provides holistic education of the highest standard in an environment that fosters the pursuit of personal and academic excellence. The school has a strong academic focus combined with a wide range of co-curricular activities, which enables students to have a complete understanding of their curriculum and beyond. It follows effective teaching methods to impart knowledge in an application-oriented way. Along with academic excellence, the school imprints an indelible mark of self-confidence, moral fortitude and a constant quest to expand one's horizons on all students that pass out its portals and thereby go on to make a positive contribution to society at large.
We strongly believe that rather than encouraging excellence in a few, a school's purpose should be to bring out the very best in each individual student, in the field that he or she is most strongly inclined towards. Every child is special and every student must be nurtured to maximise his or her potential in that area. This enables Lokhandwala Foundation School & Junior College to mold confident, competent and complete students of today and citizens of tomorrow.
In keeping with our motto, 'Freedom Through Education', the institution instills a sense of freedom along with the responsibilities that it entails in the students. The school has a deep regard for community service and believes in shaping students and trains them to give back to society in various ways. We have conducted various social drives such as tree plantation initiative, visiting orphanages, collecting funds for the aged and the visually-impaired to name a few.
While we have achieved a lot, we realise that perfection is a never-ending mission and we aim to constantly strive towards it.
