Academic Director's Message

Today, the role of a school is not only to pursue academic excellence but also to motivate and empower its students to be life long learners, critical thinkers, and productive members of an ever-changing global society. Therefore, a good educational system is one that helps a child to nurture his/her talents and overcome shortcomings by providing appropriate, all-encompassing education. This enables the child to develop his/her personality and equips the child to face the challenges of life
“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you’ll never cease to grow.”

“Observation more than books, experience more than persons, are the prime educators.” While academic excellence is our major thrust, the school is also devoted to prepare our students for life, groom them to face the challenges of tomorrow, and encourage them to be socially relevant. We encourage each child to develop in their special field of interest so as to best showcase their particular type of talent. We constantly endeavor to always live up to this ideology and inculcate this into everything we do, with the aim that we will be able to ensure that the children grow to their full potential, while constantly being groomed to pass out as men and women competent to bear responsibility in all walks of life. In the words of John Dewey,
“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”
