A name to reckon with

india Updated: Dec 27, 2010 11:29 IST

With the junior wing in Vasant Vihar and the senior wing in Gurgaon, The Shri Ram School became a name to reckon with within a few years of coming up, in 1988. What began with five tents, 64 children, a handful of determined staff, has, grown slowly and steadily, holding its own among the oldest of schools in Delhi, to a school strength in excess of seven hundred children and a hundred and eight staff. TSRS is one of the two ICSE schools in Delhi (the other being Frank Anthony Public School).

To ensure that every child’s individual need is catered to, TSRS has a Special Needs Department, which has been in existence since 1997. Shreya Kumar, an alumna of the school and currently doing her Doctorate in Psychology (PsyD) from Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology, says, “The academic pressure was not so much and we had the freedom to express our views. We were treated as young adults rather than immature kids.” With equal emphasis on co-curricular activities, it’s easy to guess why it one of the most popular choice among parents for their children.

The school invests a lot in teacher training programmes, with the teachers attending regular workshops and seminars, to constantly upgrade their skills. TSRS lays a lot of emphasis on students with special education needs and these students engage in many extra and co-curricular activities throughout the year.
