Kalorex Group: A leader in Education Excellence empowering the future of tomorrow
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. – Benjamin Franklin
Education is the best investment of all the time; they have shaped greatest minds who constituted the framework of today’s world. Behind every speculative brain- there is a wise teacher or a great school. Aristotle shone from Plato’s Academy. Kautilya was Chandragupta’s teacher. The advice(s) of Kautilya are still relevant even today. India has a rich legacy of didactics. The whole world still admires our Gurukul custom. Tagore’s Visva-Bharati has produced Nobel laureate Amartya Sen. In this digital era, India boasts of her academic excellence- the sharpest weapon in our arsenal. As our country grows into its new economic might, the education sector is soaring where it gets nearly impossible to do the honor of introducing a group that is avowed globally for nurturing brains and carve them into future leaders.
Incepted in 1995, the Kalorex Group is an autonomous institution catering to the learning needs of students from all economic groups with its primary focus on K-12 educational activities. Designed under the distinctive vision of being the paramount recourse for all possible target groups, Kalorex is a name synonymous with education par excellence.

With the mission of achieving excellence in K-12 education through a sound vision, innovation and professionalism, the organization has grown leaps and bounds over the span of 20 years.
Striking a chord within the Indian Educational Space
The relentless pursuit of growth and innovation has helped Kalorex surpass expectations creating new benchmarks in the field of education. Since its inception, for around two decades, Kalorex has established under its umbrella, the two Delhi Public Schools (Bhopal and East Ahmedabad), Calorx Olive International School – a full spectrum IB school at Ahmedabad and Calorx Public Schools at Rajula, Mundra, Ahmedabad, Bharuch, and Jaipur. The Kalorex Pre-School chain is fast growing and apart from its presence in several cities of Gujarat, it has expanded to Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu. The Kalorex Group also has plans to open the pre-schools across the country and more in the UAE in the coming years. The Kalorex Group is planning to establish Calorx Public Schools in tier 2 cities in the near future.

The lightening guide behind the brand
“It’s the age to disrupt the classrooms; handhold, co-create and reach out to students. The 21st-century learning is all about engaging students continually towards gaining and applying knowledge through technology and innovation.”
Manjula Pooja Shroff
Founder and Managing Director of Kalorex Group
Manjula Pooja Shroff is someone who fought her way surpassing all societal norms and garnered her higher education from renowned universities like IIM Ahmadabad, York University and London School of Economics and Political Science. She took the plunge into entrepreneurship and decided to follow her dream.
Manjula justified her royalty with her intention of giving heed to a humanitarian cause. Amidst all challenges as a female, Manjula’s unbridled passion for providing quality education to children, found her calling in the educational sector. Her dream to empower all possible student groups through the medium of Education and to have the Kalorex School banner flying across the country and abroad has now turned into a reality. With a strong value of dedication, compassion, and devotion to complete development of children, Manjula initiated her journey by establishing the first Delhi Public School (DPS) in Gujarat in 1996. In the initial days, DPS was looked upon with great skepticism and resistance but the school was bound to flourish because of Manjula’s consistent perseverance and sheer willpower. She fearlessly challenged the dominant mindset that condemned the co-ed mode of education and English as a medium of instruction.
A dynamic entrepreneur and an educationist with ardent zeal, Manjula paid heed in every detailed researching before setting the Kalorex Taxonomy for Pre-schools and K-12 Schools encompassing the new age pedagogies applicable to all schools irrespective of the Board they follow. To take all this forward Kalorex Group has set a Learning, Development and Quality Department which monitors the implementation of the Kalorex Taxonomy through Academic and Quality Audits. Ideally, Manjula looked at the holistic development of a child and, therefore, the modeled curriculum is an amalgamation of thoughts developed in a way that could elevate the latent talent of each child to help them become independent, self-confident and inquisitive learners. Manjula has successfully built the Kalorex chain of schools on the very foundations of love, affection, and warmth ensuring the child’s all-round development. She oversees the functioning of a humanistic approach.
Manjula Pooja Shroff ends her interview with The CEO Magazine by leaving a positive note for all the glorious women willing to start a business. She elucidates, “Find out and reach your potential. Never think of you to be behind the threshold of ultimate success for in every woman there lays an untapped potential that needs to be unlocked and explored.”
