    Saint Joseph International School for Excellence

    We believe that a strong school education system is foundational for socio-economic development and global competitiveness. It is a pathway to ensure that all children, irrespective of their socio-economic background, have the opportunity to be responsible and productive citizens. In India, with growing proportion of young people, there is a need to ensure that they are prepared with a unique concept of nurturing and activating their leadership qualities through quality education.

    Hence The Society has now ventured into a new unique project – Saint Joseph International School for Excellence – a residential as well as day-boarding school. It visualizes that the future landscape of school education will have a shift. It foresees a transformation in the education system through holistic development and expects wide accountability of all stakeholders to deliver relevant student learning outcomes. The Society with its expertise and experience and strong governance is well positioned to shape and guide the children to become future leaders. Technology is pervasive in its reach, which is an active part of the classroom learning environment. Its effective employment reinforces continuous professional development of future generations.

    Our skill based learning will focus on skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, self-learning, communication skills using effective pedagogical practices such as inquiry and activity based learning. They will imbibe a strong sense of values and character traits that are relevant to the Indian context.

    Hence if you wish to prepare your child/ward to face the future challenges well equipped as mature and responsible adults here we are.
