Rooted to local tradition and committed to future ready education
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.
Since its inception, the school has been committed to encouraging education for girls in a culture where most parents who can afford an English medium school would send only their sons. To realize the dream of providing an equal educational opportunity for girls, the school gives up to 100 scholarships and 70% are for girls alone. The school also provides scholarships through a partnership with The John Bissell Scholars Fund. It is a matter of pride that girls hold many leadership posts in the school. In addition, the school seeks to enrol and subsidize children from socially and economically marginalized communities who otherwise do not have access to quality education.
One of the most important values imparted is for students to stay connected to their birthplace. They are instilled with a sense of pride in their local heritage and a sense of responsibility for the future of Rajasthan.
