"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela

It gives me immense pleasure to invite you to take an initial peek into the heart that beats behind the appealing façade of Podar International School, Satara. At the outset, I express my gratitude to the parents who have put their faith in us to educate their children. This brings with it tremendous responsibilities and I assure you that we are doing our best to live up to your trust in us.

I am extremely sanguine that Podar International School, Satara has offered itself as a shell for sheltering & fostering young minds in their raw state to be matured into empowered innovators and discoverers. Education is unending life long process. It begins when one enters the stage of life until he / she has his exit.

Shaping young, impressionable minds is one of life’s biggest challenges. At Podar International School, Satara, we aim to empower our students to grow as individuals with strong open discerning minds with an international perspective, preparing them to make a mark in the global village - the world has come to be today.

Our mission is to inculcate the love of knowledge in our students and, for this, we aim to develop the skills and demeanor of lifelong ‘learning,’ essential for making responsible global citizens. This will make them immensely capable of facing the future with resilience and optimism. On the deeper level, we try to instill the values of respect and trust in relationships that are the foundation of real success.

Our distinctive academic programmes and innovative teaching methodologies encourage students to develop critical-thinking and learn through enquiry and reason, to exchange thoughts and ideas, to develop key personal and social values, to take ownership for his/ her choices and to set goals to realize their own unique potential.

"Education is the shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students & enthusiastic parents with high expectations."

We also believe that each child is unique. We seek parents’ support to know more about the child, so that we can work together on the child’s strengths and help him/her in the journey to discover himself/herself. I also want the children to be passionate about their dreams and we will be the wind beneath their wings as they soar to achieve them. I wish to empower our children with the courage to continue believing in themselves even in the face of adversity. The school also works to provide encouragement and impetus to the children for self growth and help them experience sense of achievement and joy.

I am committed to communicate openly our areas of growth, our efforts to improve, and most importantly celebrations of our success! TOGETHER, we can accomplish anything!
