PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

With great pride I welcome you to the temple of knowledge.

The days of desks arranged in straight rows facing the teacher and the blackboard are over. Classrooms in the 21st century invite learners and educators alike to come in and delve into deep and authentic learning. They are comfortably appointed-alike a family room-and rich in learning materials and resources.

In this sort of environment, there are all kinds of nooks and crannies to meet a variety of learning need, including areas for group work and discussions, areas for creating places to study and think alone, and whenever possible, outdoor spaces to breathe in fresh air and actively play. Our Mission is to develop and equip children of India for the challenges of the 21st century. We at PIS, Ichalkaranji, provide a perfect learning environment required for a 21st century learner.

We focus on the exploration of authentic, real world, and relevant topics, issues and problems in the contexts in which they occur. Learning is not taught as memorizing subject-specific facts and concepts in a vacuum, but rather as cross-disciplinary and in real-world contexts. Students are not just consumers of content, but are given opportunities to have a voice and to contribute to the real world by creating content and artifacts to share with an authentic audience as a part of their learning process.

We focus on core competencies such as collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking and problem-solving that help students thrive in today’s world. Holistic development of a child is given utmost importance.

Excellence is a continuous process and not an accident
- Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam
