Prometheus School has been founded under the aegis of Gauri Shiksha Foundation with an aim to provide holistic education to the children, encompassing – academics, co-curricular activities, sports education and life skills learning. We believe that education is the basis of all progress and entire purpose of education is to inculcate humanitarian values like wisdom, compassion, courage, humility, integrity and reliability in a child. Our mission is to create individuals who grow up as disciplined, responsible, productive citizens of a democratic country and are confident of their potential, goal oriented, sensitive to their environment and above all, co-creators of their own destiny.
“ Prometheus school will follow transformative paradigm to learning which will emphasize upon changing the overall personality of children by providing them with connected, meaningful learning experiences. We aim to educate and empower the students to help them grow into aesthetically rich, intellectually aware and integrated young people capable of fulfilling their dreams and aspirations. We shall also foster in them the virtues of human excellence by nurturing the values of generosity, truthfulness, compassion, tolerance and justice.
It gives me an immense sense of happiness and honor to announce that Prometheus School is all set to commence its first session in the year 2019 with a commitment to providing an all-round quality education to the young and budding learners. I look forward to engaging with students, educators, families and the community by creating meaningful, applied learning experiences which can lead to increasing literacy to the benefit of the nation as a whole.
Wishing everyone great success for the new beginning!
