About Us

With an overwhelming sea of knowledge and content all around us, how do we give our children and young adults the right things to read? What if through this abundance, we skip the good knowledge that the child should receive?

School LIVE magazine is your one-stop solution.

School LIVE is a monthly magazine, that is dedicated towards providing interesting and useful content to school going children. Started in September 2014, School LIVE goes to around 152 schools, all over India and has a readership of more that 200k students.

The highlight of the magazine is that the articles are written by the students, for the students and thus, School LIVE serves as an independent platform where students from schools all over India can interact and share their ideas and opinions.

Along with students, a number of experts from different fields have lent their support to School LIVE and shared their wisdom. We have also had guest articles from Mr. Rajdeep Sardesai, Yashwant Deshmukh, Neelesh Misra, Anshul Tewari, to name a few.

During our journey, School LIVE has had the pleasure of featuring many famous personalities on its cover, including Amitabh Bachan, Col. Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, RJ Raunac, Amish Tripathi, Chetan Bhagat, Smriti Irani, Sania Mirza, Saina Nehwal, Anushka Shankar, Boman Irani, and Rajkumar Hirani. We encourage our student reporters to interview these personalities themselves, and become only a medium for them to achieve so.

As we continue our journey and grow, School LIVE aspires to be a name synonymous with learning and sharing of thoughts.
