Ms. Ramamurthy founded Ekya Schools to bring pedagogically sound, research-based learning experiences to India. She spearheads K-12 initiatives under the CMR Group, overseeing state board, CBSE, ICSE and pre-university institutes, totally an overall student strength of 5000.

Ms. Ramamurthy holds a Bachelor’s degree from Singapore Management University.

Her past research has focused on topics including educational equity, teacher motivation, education policy and curriculum construction.

Through her leadership, Ekya has grown and continues to grow, with new schools opening yearly throughout Bangalore. Her child-first approach to education has brought new globally acknowledged methods to the CMR group’s educational identity.


At CMR, the child is at the core of everything we do – from how our campus looks, to how our educators are trained and how we design learning. We strongly believe in the ability of our students and what they can achieve when the right platform is provided. These students are independent thinkers and problem-solvers that take ownership of their learning beyond the limitations of textbooks.

Students of CMR are mindful, respectful and display confidence in their interactions with situations and people around them. It is a culture of high expectations, supported by the community at college. CMR educators and parents work in partnership to build a safe, conducive environment that allows each child to excel.

I encourage progressive educators, parents and students to join our community as we bring learning to life.
