Mr. B.S. Sood and Mrs. Krishna Sood the founders of Spring Dale Institution were great visionaries. They loved children and saw a dream for them.
As a young man Mr. Sood always believed in doing charitable work, he also supported people who took the initiative to open schools. This involvement gradually became his dream – to provide quality education en masses to students belonging to middle & lower income families. To give shape to his dreams he and his wife Mrs. Krishna Sood sowed the seeds on 14th January in 1970 with five children on roll. It was from this humble beginning that Spring Dale Institution grew over the years. Currently there are three full fledged branches under its flagship.
Between 1970 and 1992 Mr B S Sood succeeded in building three branches of the school in Lucknow. As an avid reader himself Mr. Sood endeavoured to build world class libraries in the school campuses. Even at that time, the scientific laboratories in Spring Dale branches were known for their high class expertise and equipment. After his sudden demise in 1994, Mrs Krishna Sood took the baton in her own hands. Although she had always been actively engaged in the running of the school but in the event of Mr. Sood’s passing away she started giving sole leadership to the institution. Pursuing the dream of giving education to the masses she laid the foundation of the Gomti Nagar Branch. And in order to give better facilities to the Mahanagar Branch, the staff and students were transferred to Gomti Nagar Branch. Mrs. Sood who as a student was a gold medalist herself had the keenness to learn, grow and become confident. This is what she wanted to pass on to the children. She was the woman of substance herself and wished all women to be independent. The evening school ‘Samajik Vidyalaya’ for the under privileged children is an example of her zeal to reach to the masses. It is because of her guidance and dedication that Spring Dale has grown rapidly as an educational institution and emerged as one of the leading schools in the region.
The rigorous curriculum and its comprehensive implementation trains our students aptly and prepares them to make a mark in the outside world. Many of our students have gained admission in top universities and institutes in the fields of medicine, engineering, management, social sciences and liberal arts. Spring Dale’s students excel in both academics as well as in the other fields. Every student who enters the institution is not merely trained in academics but we try our best to help students become holistic individuals and help them imbibe the ideals which are our founders stood by- hard work, commitment and honesty.
The present members of the management committee comprising Major S. K. Khanna Mrs. Reeta Khanna, Dr. Atul Sood Dr. Navsharan Singh and Mrs Sangita Midha are leaving no stone unturned to carry forward the founders’ dream and mission to make the institution reach its zenith.
Founder Director’s Message :
“The heights by great people were not achieved by sudden flight, but they while their companions slept were toiling upward in the night… This is the 38th year of the School. Many a times I come across the little boys and girls of the past now turned to successful grown-ups and I am filled with immense pride and pleasure when they tell me that it was here at Spring Dale, that they learned their first lessons in duty and perseverance.

You all add a special something to our school some of you makes us proud through your academic achievements, your extra-curricular activities and your brilliance at the sports field.
