About the founder cum Principal Dr N. Vijayan

Financial constraints and compulsions of the family did not allow him to complete his college studies and forced him to join the Indian Air Force. He served as a regular combat member of IAF and left after serving for a period of 15 years to take up the teaching job. In the words of H.W. Longfellow “Heights by great men reached and kept were not obtained by sudden flight but, while their companions slept, they were toiling upward in the night” The zenith reached by our founder is the culmination of diligence and perseverance, fortitude and tenacity, determination and devotion

Improvisation and innovation in teaching and learning methodology – Integration of pedagogy and technology
E-learning and smart class programs

The untapped potentials of the children are brought out through a series of activities. Project work, group discussion, quiz on important and relevant subjects help the students to acquire sound knowledge and proper understanding of what they have learnt.

Schooling is a joyful experience as pedagogy is integrated with technology. Smart classrooms with e-board facility enhance the quality of education imparted. Note taking is taught to the students even at the primary level. This enables them to analyse and reason out while learning.

Information and communication technology is incorporated in the school system, aiming for a better progress of the students. This facility enables the teachers to bring into the classroom, the state of Art Education with 3D Animation of the corresponding pictures of the concepts.

Peer group teaching

Children of today feel free to interact with their friends, rather than teachers or parents. The class is segregated into a few groups. Children take their choice. Each group has all I.Q. levels of children. When they work together they feel at ease and joyful learning is felt by them. The students are ready to work for the benefit of the peers. Hence good influence of the peer group, coupled with right encouragement, works miracles. This also rules out rote learning.
