GSIS Ooty – ranked No.1 Indian international residential school in 2022, has announced that Dr. Madhav Deo Saraswat is joining the 47-year-old reputed institution as the new Principal and Director starting AY 2023-24.

As a teacher and housemaster at The Doon School, he was profoundly engaged in several curricular and extracurricular activities and has led many service projects to raise funds, built state-of-the-art infrastructure, and instilled ideas of a more inclusive and humane culture in students and adults alike.  A man of inimitable grit and steadfast determination, Mr. Saraswat is an exponent of the ideology of ‘Leadership through Service’ and believes in establishing and promoting a culture of excellence and meritocracy in every sphere of school activity. He is an English and Hindi alumnus of the Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University, Agra, and has a Postgraduate Degree in English, Hindi, and Sanskrit. He has also earned a Doctorate in Hindi Literature.

“We are excited to welcome Dr. Saraswat to the GSIS family,” said Jacob Thomas, President, GSIS. “Dr. Saraswat’s expertise in the Indian education industry is invaluable for us, and I am confident that his experience and insights will help us achieve new heights of success and growth”.
