A Unique Ideology

Apeejay School believes that Education is preparation for a meaningful life lived for a purpose. The ability “to learn, to lead and to serve” is what makes life worthwhile and well-lived. Every student has an own unique cultural experience, skill, interest and potential which should be integral to the teaching and learning process. Therefore, students learn best when the learning is constructive and is delivered in a supportive environment.

“Schools must cultivate international-mindedness among students and educators so that they see themselves connected to the global community and assume a sense of responsibility towards its members. Good education must be focused on all round development and unlocking potential of all students” adds Sushma. It should develop students’ moral and ethical compass through a critical examination of beliefs and value systems to make them balanced and principled.
