M. C. Kejriwal Vidyapeeth (or MCKV) is a school in Liluah, Howrah, West Bengal, India. It was founded by Sri Shyam Sunder Kejriwal on 15 June 1997, in memory of his grandfather, Sri Mirzamal Kejriwal, and father, Sri Chaggan Lal Kejriwal.

Sri Shyam Sunder Kejriwal, an industrialist known for his philanthropy, wished to provide quality secondary education to the children of Belur and neighbouring areas, and so set up MCKV. Starting with 300 students, today it has more than 3,000 children and a teaching faculty of 160.

The school is affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations, New Delhi, for the ICSE and ISC examinations. It has been accredited by the British Council for the International School Award. It received ISO 9001:2008 accreditation. It was recently accepted for membership of the International Boys' School Coalition, a New York-based grouping of 250 boys' schools from all over the world. MCKV is among the few schools in West Bengal to have been accredited for Quality School Governance by the National Accreditation Board for Education and Training (NABET), a constituent of the Quality Council of India, set up by the Ministry of Commerce, Government of India.

M. C. Kejriwal Vidyapeeth was declared the "School of the Year 2013" by the Telegraph Education Foundation at The Telegraph Awards for Excellence in Schools ceremony held on 31 August 2013 in the Science City Auditorium, Kolkata. The school has also been ranked number 4 Day Boys School in Kolkata and West Bengal in the Education World India School Rankings 2013.

MCKV carries out its social responsibility in a number of ways, notable amongst which are Disha, a free night school for the underprivileged children of the neighbourhood, and the Bal Vikas Kendra, a school for differently-abled and special needs children, run in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Belur.

Academics and Curriculum[edit]

MCKV designs its own skill and activity based curriculum in the pre-primary, primary, middle and senior sections.

Pre-primary (Montessori, Nursery and Kindergarten)[edit]

In the first year of the pre-school stage, the Montessori method is followed which is characterized by an emphasis on respect for a child’s natural psychological development.

In the subsequent pre-primary stages, the programmes are activity-based, largely thematic, and impart linguistic, creative, numeric, social, motor and knowledge skills.

Secondary (classes 5 to 10)[edit]

The children are encouraged to develop and strengthen formal scholastic skills and effective work and study habits. Classes 9 and 10 come within the ICSE syllabus. Therefore, the children are gradually introduced to an exam-oriented approach in addition to the pedagogies practiced at MCKV. They are encouraged to learn by cognition and understanding, rather than by rote.
