We incorporate the best practices of international teaching methods along with the Indian values of rigor, homework, respect for elders, etc. This gives our young learners the advantage of a wider scope of learning, while covering the essentials on each topic, and ensuring that they understand each concept thoroughly.

To help each of our students learn better and excel in academics, we have defined processes and set measures in place to ensure that no student is left behind in the learning process.
- PERSONAL ATTENTION:
Just as parents are teachers at home, teachers are parents in school.
Our teachers are not just limited to classroom teaching, but play a bigger role in each child’s life. A teacher is not only teaching her subject to the students but also constantly teaching her students, values and life lessons that a parent would want to impart in them.
Teachers look after academic as well as personal care of the child by making sure the child doesn’t face any difficulty, be it physically, or psychologically. It is not just teachers in ORCHIDS but an entire team of teachers, counselors, nutritionists, coordinators, didis, who are always looking out for our children, giving them the personal attention they require at school when their parents are not around.
Our entire staff plays a very important role in providing the required personal attention to our students, which helps them grow in an extremely healthy environment.
Academically, our teachers attend to each student and help them achieve their learning milestones. Each class’ strength is limited to 30-40 students to ensure that every child is attended to. This ensures maximum impact on the child’s learning outcomes and timely interventions whenever required.
