Giving them a chance to grow

A child needs support for realising his or her true potential. And, for the all-round development of a child, the infrastructure and facilities provided by the school do weigh on the parents’ minds. Yadavindra Public School (YPS), SAS Nagar, is the best in providing infrastructure and facilities to its students.

A child needs support for realising his or her true potential. And, for the all-round development of a child, the infrastructure and facilities provided by the school do weigh on the parents’ minds.


Yadavindra Public School (YPS), SAS Nagar, is the best in providing infrastructure and facilities to its students, it has been revealed in this year’s HT–C-Fore survey. St John’s High School and Sacred Heart Convent School are second and third.

What is common among these schools is that all of them have large campuses. Spread over 22 acres, YPS has around 30 special classrooms that take e-education to a new level. The school also has exchange programmes under which its sends students to Germany, USA and many other countries.

"We try to expose our students to new circumstances and environment, so that they grow up into confident, skilled adults. It is not just academics, but other factors that make a complete person; we concentrate on them," said RP Devgan, principal of YPS.

St John’s High School, a recipient of National Computer Literacy Award in the private schools’ category, has three well-equipped science labs for students of Classes 6 to 12; it also has a “maths activity room”, two computer labs and a multimedia room for students. At Sacred Heart Convent School, the focus continues to be on the students, sister Nisha, the school’s principal, said, “We are striving to be the best and groom our students into leaders of tomorrow.”

But, what sets Vivek High School apart is the opportunity it gives to its students to work at a radio station. ‘Vivek 90.4 FM’ focuses on bringing the community together. “At our school, education implies more than just imparting knowledge,” said PK Singh, the school principal.
