Excelsior English School

Excelsior English School was founded in 1992. The concept that governs the school is ‘excellent in quality , small in size’. The norms of schooling have undergone a sea change and we are at a point of time when new strategies and ideas need to be worked out to make learning and teaching interesting for the students. Children’s interests and mindsets have changed. Technology now plays a major role in education. AI and Internet has revolutionised the world and more so our youth. It is time to eliminate  age old methods of teaching and learning as the teachers role is now of a facilitator and tools of learning have shifted to experimental learning and virtual classrooms.

We at Excelsior always remain updated on the current trends in education. One guiding factor that we are proud of is the concept of limited numbers in classes which facilitates maximum student teacher interaction. Student’s priorities have shifted and we need to plan our strategies accordingly. We are able to maintain discipline with gentleness. A strong bonding with the student is an added advantage with small classrooms. I am sure a student who goes out after completing schooling with us will be emotionally mature and value driven with good moral values. We need a generation of such citizens to carry our country onward.

The mantra we try to instill in our students is there is no substitute for hardwork. Pursue excellence and success will chase you. Dream big,align your passion and purpose in life with a goal. If you focus on your goals you will overcome all obstacles.Aim at always being the best. It is very important to be positive and optimistic in life. Have self confidence and believe in your potential.

The concept of schooling has undergone a paradigm shift in the past 3 decades. When we started Excelsior More

ROHIT ABRAHAM GRADE XI

I got into business not only because it was my passion but also to be financially self-sufficient. My love for kulfis led me to create this initiative and because there weren’t many good kulfi stores in town. I’ve always dreamt of starting my own business and with the support of my friends and family, I was able to achieve that dream at a young age.
