Our Mission

To create an autonomous education board that emerges as the 'thought leader' in the education space.

Teaching Philosophy

While learning about what is happening around the world, we many a times forget to learn things about our own country. At SCHOOL OF INDIA our teachings are inspired from the rich legacy of India. An India that has been instrumental in shaping the modern world as we see it today. We celebrate everything Indian and instill a sense of pride about the country in your child.
