Unique Features
 
Inclusive education: (Special Education Center)

The school strongly subscribes to Inclusive Education and took the initiative in this direction from 2002-2003 wherein Dr.Gayathri Krishna of Brindavan Psycho Education Centre set up the Resource Centre in Sishya School as a boon to the Slow Learner. Teaching patterns were incorporated without emphasis on speed,-rather the emphasis was on mastery of concepts at a desirable and comfortable pace of the child. Evaluation is therefore never in terms of pass or fail but based on successful completion of tasks.
