Located on a 15-acre complex, the philosophy of Amity International School is vidya dadati vinayam (knowledge engenders humility).
“Our fundamental objective is the full development of every pupil — academic, physical, cultural and spiritual,” Amity International principal Renu Singh told Hindustan Times. “Amity develops in its pupils qualities of skill and care. There is also an active concern for the environment, and in tackling environmental problems.”
Besides a busy academic life, students’ calendars are packed with sports and co-curricular activities.
“Having spent five years (at the school), I feel that (joining Amity) was one of the most important decisions of my life,” Vellure Suharsh, a Class 10 student of Amity, said.
Aishwarya Singhal, who passed out from the school in 2009 and is now pursuing a management degree in Singapore, said self-discipline, responsibility, and freedom of thought and speech were encouraged at Amity International and “students learn to appreciate the value of cultures, languages and religions other than their own and see themselves as genuinely international citizens”.
