The German dramatist, poet, and historian Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller (1759-1805) ranks as one of the greatest of German literary figures. He was a founder of modern German literature. Friedrich von Schiller was born at Marbach, Württemberg, on Nov. 10, 1759. His first play, Die Räuber, was published in 1781. It ranks as one of the literary monuments of the German Sturm und Drang period. Keeping the goal of education over and above everything we have named the school ‘Schiller’ after Friedrich Schiller, the renowned German educationist. This should not lead one to misconstrue that there is a dearth of Indian educationists or that the names of Indian educationists are uninspiring to us.
