Biggest School In the World - City Montessori India

SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj

CITY Montessori school in India is the world's biggest - with a staggering 47,000 pupils. It is so large a packed Anfield could comfortably attend - with room to spare. The school - known as CMS for short - employs an army of 3,800 staff, including teachers, support staff, cleaners, rickshaw drivers, and even electricians, carpenters and gardeners. It has over 1,000 classrooms, 3,700 computers and goes through thousands of pounds worth of stationary and books each year. Based in the city of Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh, CMS was set up by Dr. Jagdish Gandhi, 75, and his wife Bharti in 1959 with just five pupils. Today, it sprawls over 20 campuses across the city - and is still growing despite doubling in size during the last 14-years alone.
