Student Bo dy
Our motto – “Education towards Enlightenment .... Mind, Bo dy & S oul !” Vision International School: New Age Holistic Education Vision International School is all about gentle hands leading young minds. Vision’s goals are to nurture courage, strong leadership, bright ideas, while also promoting art, expression of thought and a spirit of inquiry. And above all, where creativity and confidence are respected, explored and encouraged. Walking onto the sprawling campus will inspire an immediate confidence in the dynamic nature of the school. Vision International School, founded in 2008, was established with the desire to bring international level education to India. Although, chronologically in its infancy, it has already made a mark, primarily because of the effort put in to educate the children to face the present and future demands of time. English being the medium of instruction, our school curriculum is designed to deliver boys and girls with, not only a well informed mind, but also an enlightened spirit.
Our motto – “Education towards Enlightenment .... Mind, Body & Soul !” Vision is dedicated to the cause of quality education, with no distinction of caste, sex, religion, race, color or sect. We have eminent and renowned educationists, engineers, doctors, jurists, creative business professionals, imaginative society leaders, social workers and administrators on its board. The school has been built to an exceptionally high standard, providing superb infrastructure and facilities for the students. Learning is the school’s core purpose and its commitment to building learning power ensures that the students develop and exercise those learning muscles that will enable them to be confident, independent and successful life-long learners. The teachers use innovative techniques supported by modern technology during classroom teaching to ignite the child’s intellectual curiosity. Vision offers an international perspective along with standard curriculum. Success in today’s fast paced world requires a multi-dimensional skill base and exposure, which may not easily be delivered by our traditional education system. The need for holistic education together with the limitations of traditional curricula explains the exponential rise of global and international schools. The aim of these schools was to provide a broader spectrum of exposure, thus leading to all-round development, and growth of a “global citizen”. Vision was envisioned to bring a paradigm shift in the nature of school education in and around this area. Vision intends to give equal focus on academics, co-curricular and extracurricular activities. Our aim is to provide the best infrastructure and facilities which will enable us to impart international standard education to our students. To support high standard educational aspirations, the school boasts a range of state-of-the art facilities including state-of-the-art labs, multi-media center, resource centre, well stacked library, world class facilities for indoor games and outdoor games, sports, plethora of extra-curricular activities and above all clean, spacious and stimulating campus with dedicated teachers is what Vision can be summed up for. Also, we believe in continuous development of our teaching staff and to this end we provide them best support and facilities for example: the resource centre dedicated for Vision teachers for their continuous learning. Further, we regularly organize work shops and seminars to hone and update our teachers’ skills. All these go a long way to prove our commitment towards excellence in school education. The school’s vision is to encompass all fields of education and to make provisions for an integrated development of the personality. To support these educational aspirations. Vision focuses on co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. These are promoted through the various clubs and societies that are organized for the students. This is not just to augment their curricular performance with adequate pleasurable activities, but also to channelize and develop such skills, foster a sense of sportsman spirit and let them face lifelike situations that bring out best in dynamic abilities.
