Key Milestones


Principal's Message

R.N. Podar School is the labour of love and passion. As you step into the rather small premises, you can feel the energy and the excitement that can only exist where there is a high degree of motivation and commitment. The school boasts of a non-threatening environment that makes it seem almost an extension of the home. The atmosphere encourages every student to shed any inhibitions and take on small leadership roles. Every student is considered to be unique and children are not labelled. Professional development sessions and capacity building workshops are also organized for faculty so that they are better equipped to coach their students. Students are encouraged to make use of all the opportunities.

In our school, everyone values and respects the work they are doing. Work ambience is congenial and there is immense creative freedom for both faculty as well as students. Students’ needs are at the core of whatever we do and the school spells innovation and creativity. Even as we keep pace with the changing environment, we are conscious of our responsibility to all our stakeholders. Our vision ‘Peak to Peak' brings a greater sense of responsibility as we set higher goals for ourselves in the future.
