School Philosophy

The philosophy of a school reflects its purpose, process, nature and ideals of education. It reflects the aims, methods and all the elements of education related to the moral and social conditions. It interprets various areas such as curriculum, context, method, learning, teaching, motivation and others. It helps in the understanding of not only an aspect of learning but of education as a whole. It is a synthesis of the realities of education and the educational values.

It is widely accepted that the aim of philosophy of education has to be the all-round development of personality. All round development consists of all the aspects - physical, mental, moral, social, emotional and the spiritual. It should help the students to deal with all their real-life problems in their family, society and career while not losing focus on the purpose of life.

From the student’s point of view, learning is promoted by engaging the different senses of the student.
