Over the past decade, ODM has garnered a strong reputation as one of the top CBSE schools of the state and definitely as the best residential school of the state because of its dedication and sheer focus on Academics and service to parents. ODM's motto "Be Good and Make Others Good" originates from its three core values, Love, Care and Respect. The school was started back in 1989 and it recently completed three decades in the domain of education.

ODM fuels the desire to inculcate a lifelong habit of learning in students, imperative for holistic development. To fuel the seed of learning, the school constantly motivates the students to believe in the motto “Learning the treasure within.”
In the year 1989, 10 students entered into a small dingy room which was supposedly their school and this was the first step towards a big dream visualized by a visionary educationist Dr. Satyabrata Minaketan
The Founder-Chairman of ODM educational group. With numerous degrees into his pocket and myriad career options before him, this man chose an unsteady and thorny path of establishing a school which would be a school with a difference and serve the mankind with real knowledge.That small room with 10 students was the beginning of what you see today as ODM Public School. With no external support and no godfather, the school rose to heights and crossed several milestones year after year. A secondary school was set-up for Socio-Economic Backward children in 1992 followed by the school’s secondary branch in 1996.
It then moved into a small campus with 350 children. Soon the quality of education, individual attention to students saw the numbers rise each year. It was only in 2005, the school took a giant leap by opening the Senior Secondary branch which saw the enrollment of 35 students in its first year. Following that, ODM became the first +2 CBSE residential school in Odisha, when it first introduced residential facilities for Senior Secondary Science students. The School has witnessed its evolution from a small building to a sprawling campus spread on 4 acres of land with 5 main blocks, from 10 students to a whooping 3500, from 2 teaching faculties to a fleet of 300+ staff. In years to come, it will definitely target the pinnacle of success by imparting qualitative education to inspire and change lives
- To provide a platform to every child to explore his/her potential
- Imparting modernised education with eastern values
- To create global leaders in every domain
- To be a pioneer in quality education
- To mould every child into a good human
