School Improvement Coach
I see the possibility of a nation where every school offers young people the opportunity to be rewarded for challenging themselves, rewarded for engaging with adult mentors, rewarded when finishing school, and rewarded for giving back to their communities. I believe we can help connect young people with new opportunities to change their world.

My Good School

My Good School - Standard Core Curriculum

How do the 4S’s - Service, Skill, Sport and Study - shapes our lives? 

Take a closer look at your school years and see how first from service, on to skill… we evolve. If you delve even further, you will find that the 4S’s are placed in the dictionary in the very same order. Moving from your small family space on to school, it all starts with learning to give and share, your space, your food, your things… and this really if the first form of service. Yes, you acquire skills, play a sport for good health and get the full experience at school, to achieve what we call the goal of ‘study’.

Standard Core Curriculum

  • Empower students by creating an environment for their personal and social development.
  • Encourage students to become involved in activities beyond just study; this helps develop confidence, knowledge and networks.
  • Experiential learning is a critical factor in the student's progressing successfully through adolescence.

The YES Workshop
Youth Engaging SocietyThe workshop was good. Very interesting. We learnt quite a lot. We learnt that each of us is 10/10 yet we may have different likings, ways of thinking and passions. We learnt to work with a team, make something creative and new. The workshop was FUN!! Thank you. J - Sreoshi MukherjeeI’ve attended a lot of leadership summits and this is the only one where the Trainer was intellectually able to connect with the audience. To make the process finer, kindly see if certain written material/ handouts can be provided for the person to refer to them in future and retain the ideas for a longer period. - Raghav MendirattaThis is a great initiative. The workshop was good and it helped me significantly in balancing my studies, sports, skills and services. These workshops should be held more often. - Abhishek Jayaram
My Good School
Long-lasting success in professional learning needs a ‘culture of learning’ and this is where he feels that till teachers do not take charge of their learning, there is no future. The teachers need to discover themselves, they need to discover more methods, they need to share more and overcome the lack of professional learning. With the explosion of information on the internet and low-cost data services delivered in India, it was high time for the PLCs (Professional Learning Communities) to take charge. Sandeep is the Founder of Learning Forward India, you can support your teams to design the Future of Learning – which could be focused on the level of the classroom and transformation in organizational culture.Sandeep Dutt shares the vision and mission, watch the video

IB School In Hyderabad - The Gaudium
Can education move from merely imparting knowledge to showing how to apply that knowledge? Can we as parents move from mindless test-scores to a more meaningful method of evaluation? Can a child be taught to recognise and create value in everything he does?These were some questions that inspired us to start The Gaudium. Gaudium means ‘Joy’ in Latin. At The Gaudium, we will help each child find joy through the core values of Integrity, Perseverance, Compassion, Appreciation, Humility, Respect and Tolerance.The Gaudium School

THE ICONIC SCHOOL, School in Bhopal
The Iconic SchoolThe Iconic School is a progressive institution that aspires to provide the best education to the students under its care set within the reflection of values and a disciplined environment. The Iconic School will be instrumental and the means through which all its students will build their futures. We consider that Education is victorious when the school and parents are in partnership. The teaching and learning do not begin and end at the school gate. It is a partnership that we are all involved in and need to work together.At The Iconic School, our singular focus is to strengthen competencies needed to be autonomous, lifelong learners. A wide range of multi-dimensional activities is organized which go a long way in propelling self-belief, confidence in decision making and problem-solving along with chiselling of soft skills. A strong requirement today is to simultaneously weave a firm moral fibre in the student's personality. The entire learning experience at Iconic is modelled on the Theory of Multiple Intelligences. This theory differentiates intelligence into specific modalities, rather than seeing it as a single general ability. The key to achieving this goal is to pursue a value based education process that acts as a nucleus around which all our school activities revolve. Extreme importance is given to the fact that emotional stability plays a very significant role in the healthy growth of a child, which is established by developing a genuine personal rapport with our children. This accessible and interactive methodology also helps in discovering and strengthening inherent talent in our students.
The Fabindia School
Affordable Quality EducationThe Fabindia School is a non-religious, non-profit, private school for boys and girls from ages three (Nursery class) through Class XII. In July 2008, after a rigorous application and review process, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) New Delhi, granted the much-anticipated accreditation to The Fabindia School for Class XI and XII. Since the CBSE permits adding one new class per year, the school opened Class XI in 2008-2009 and added Class XII in 2009-2010. In 2012 the school had a 100% success rate in the CBSE Board exam.The main school is located on an eight-acre campus a few kilometres from the main road of Bali, a village in the Indian desert state of Rajasthan. The campus has several adjoining classroom buildings include a library, science labs, audio-visual room, computer centre and an English learning lab. The abundant green campus play fields, an outdoor auditorium, water harvesting system and a forest area to create a child-friendly, creative environment which harmonizes with the open green space. The adjoining six-acre junior campus was added in 2013, and in addition to a child-friendly Pre-Primary school, there are sports areas for the senior school, dance and music school, art and craft centre, a farm and a garage for the schools' transport fleet.Starting with 11 students in 1992, today there are over 500 students with over 50% female enrolment. Students come from various villages across a 30-kilometre radius and are transported via one of the many school buses. The school maintains a teacher to student ratio of 1:30. The academic year runs from April to March. The school has been affiliated with India's premier educational board, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), since 1997 and has produced consistently good results at the Class X Board exams every year. It has been allotted as a CBSE board exam centre for the annual board exams where students from schools across the area appear for their exams at The Fabindia School.In keeping with its holistic approach to education, the school offers extensive extracurricular programs in addition to its comprehensive academic courses. School activities include a wide range of sports programs including opportunities to participate in regional tournaments, as well as drama, debate, arts and crafts, music, environmental education and community service to provide a well-rounded education. Students also have the unique opportunity to go on educational field trips both within the state and beyond. For many students, these trips are their first time away from home and the exposure to other cities and towns creates lifelong impressions.While focusing on the local culture, the school also frequently welcomes visitors, trained specialists and volunteers from across India and overseas who contribute towards the campus, teaching and sharing their experiences with the students. This unique cross-cultural exposure creates a well-informed and broad-minded student body. As many visitors have remarked, the energetic students show respect for their culture and traditions but have a clear sense of the world around them.
