Education is the process of learning to acquire knowledge, skills, values, and good habits. Purpose of the Education is to teach the students “how to make their living” and also, “how to live this human life meaningfully”. A teacher should teach the students by creating curiosity and they will continue the learning process as long as they live. In my opinion, it is right of the child to be wrong, for they will learn by making mistakes. At River Valley School, all our efforts are made to Teach the students in such a way that Learning amuses them and turns into a joyful activity.
In order to keep the students engaged in studies in regular manner throughout the year instead making them examination time birds, the school conducts weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly tests in addition to Annual and Half yearly examinations. Apart from normal academic curriculum, various extra curricular activities including sports are organized regularly for overall development of the pupils. We give a lot of emphasis on Activity Based Teaching & Learning, especially in Primary Sections, in order to ignite creative power of the children. We maintain very strict discipline in the school, and yet create fearlessness in the minds of children for their right acts and give them enough freedom to approach their Teachers, Principal and Chairman for their grievance or academic queries.
At RVS, students discover their own talents, and get an opportunity to develop them to the fullest. The school provides an invigorating and competitive atmosphere, created by excellent facilities and guidance provided by qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty. School offers a comprehensive and holistic education. The ingrained value system helps to promote confidence, direction and critical thinking skills among the students leading to development of their well adjusted, adaptable and integrated personality.
Besides being committed to academic excellence and providing education for all round development of the students, another special characteristic of River Valley School is the appreciation of social concerns and helping the neighbourhood population at the time crises – earth quake, flood or fire victims…. Also, the School is equally concerned for the less-privileged students of the society facing financial constraints and waive off their fees, when needed.
