The Education system in our Vidyalaya is based on the philosophy of Swami Vivekananda “Man Making Education” i.e. value based nationalistic education which not only makes the child educated, self reliant, confident, independent, truthful and selfless with noble character but also takes care of child’s five fold development i.e. Physical, Mental, Emotional, Intellectual and Spiritual level. Besides the regular academic syllabus, a number of co-curricular activities are also included in the curriculum to develop students’ all-round performance and also which will help in culturing their emotions and inculcate good values. Students are also encouraged to take part in different inter- school and intra- school meets.
