Real education is that which prepares one for life. It makes one learn, cultivate and develop those virtues that contribute to a more meaningful life. These are best inculcated when a student reaches the middle or higher secondary levels at school.
At Sri Prakash Vidyaniketan Middle and Higher Secondary School, Vizag, we train our students to face the real world with the right attitude and values. The system of testing the development of a child, by gauging his classroom assessments, aids little in preparing the child to face the challenges and rewards of life ahead. Learning is no longer confined to the four walls of the classroom. Everything a child learns, be it under any purview, is ‘education’.
At Sri Prakash Vidyaniketan, Vizag, the education we provide to the middle and higher secondary school students, makes them competent enough to cross the obstacles, hardships and hurdles of life. The skills that are imparted and developed here aid the students to enhance their natural abilities, and stand tall in the field of their choice, allowing them to be the masters of their own lives.
According to Dr. Abdul Kalam, “Education is an endless journey through knowledge and enlightenment”. He writes that the education system should retain the smiles on the faces of our children.
To us, education is not merely a profession – it is an innate passion. Our vastly experienced and qualified faculty are deeply committed to upholding our motto that the children should not lose their joyfulness in the process of learning. This is a pivotal criteria when we design learning atmospheres to suit the learners with different types of intelligence, as envisaged by Howard Gardner – both within the classrooms and outside, while we nurture joyful learning for holistic growth.
Through the finest ‘teaching-learning’ methodologies, we make sure that the middle and higher secondary grade children at our school get proper encouragement and circumstances to collaborate productively, think creatively, reason critically, and communicate effectively, as they discover a plethora of opportunities to optimize their potential and grow into successful global leaders of tomorrow.
The IIT foundation training right from class VIII fulfills the academic need for science and math-savvy students.
The opportunity to participate in National Olympiads provides a platform for the students to bring forth their skills and knowledge in the field of Science, Math, English and Information Technology, satiating the needs of this segment of learners.
Each member of the Sri Prakash Vidyaniketan family is concerned about the well-being of every individual child. Right from the mother teachers of primary classes to the faculty at grade XII, all put in their heart and soul in developing the unique personality of each student.
We strive to keep our middle and higher secondary grade students updated in all fields. Hence, we prioritize giving maximum inputs and exposure to our students in learning the intricacies of coding, artificial intelligence, and Vedic mathematics, through a thoughtfully designed curriculum. The earlier the children get acquainted with these fields of knowledge, the more proficient and efficient they turn out to be in the coming years.
With this intention, we start training our children right from class VI, under the guidance of experts in the field.
