Background & History
 
At the initiative of Dr. Ved Chaudhary and Dr. Bishan Agrawal, the Hindi School was started on the auspicious day of Makar Sakranti, January 14, 2001 with nine students in the basement of Bishan and Shail Agrawal’s house in Marlboro, NJ. The following year enrollment grew to more than 20 students, so the classes were held at the Marlboro Library. At this point Mrs. Uma Chaudhary also joined as a regular teacher.
 
The enrollment continued to grow simply by word of mouth from the parents and teachers. By the third year, space requirements for classrooms had outgrown the space available in the library.  Therefore, the program was moved to Frank Defino Central School, its current location, in September 2004.
 
At present over 150 students are enrolled and seven levels of classes are offered (Beginner I, Beginner II and Level I to V). There are eight regular and backup teachers in addition to Dr. Bishan Agrawal who has been continuously guiding the program as the school Principal.
 
The school has steadily grown due to strong community support and cooperation. All of the teachers are serving on a volunteer basis and many parents are enthusiastically providing many hours of volunteer service in organizing Holi and Diwali cultural events as well as the end of the year awards ceremony. Marlboro Hindi School is conducted by the Educators Society for Heritage of India (ESHI).
