Objectives, Prospectus & Rules
New India School - English Medium (I - X), under the auspices of Raja Shri Shivraya Pratishthan, Pune - 411038 is a permanently un-aided private school recognized by the Dept. of Education, Government of Maharashtra, affiliated to the Secondary School Certificate Examination Board (S.S.C.E.) [Registration No. 1702/242/2002 MS-I]
The objective of the school is to provide student-centered, relevant, modern Indian education that will sustain the student not only in the school and higher education but throughout their lives. Therefore the education here will be apolitical, non-commercial and secular, and the students, hopefully, would care for better values such as national integration, patriotism, cultured behaviour, humane attitude, empathy, compassion, peaceful co-existence, truth and non-violence.
All this would not happen without formation of certain rules leading all of us towards decent, disciplined behaviour. Outer discipline does encourage human beings to look within for answers, and leads them gradually towards human beings to look within for answers, and leads them gradually towards inner discipline. We are sure you agree with this. Let us all co-operate, the teachers and the parents together to gently lead our children, our hope, towards enlightenment.
The understanding and love amongst students, teachers and parents are the only ways to earn our youngsters trust. This school will try its best to be worthy of this faith.
