Principal, DPS Panvel

Urban population in India can be called “Education centric”. As soon as a child is born, parents start discussing about which school they will put their child in, and sometimes it is right from when the child is in the mother’s womb! Given the importance given to Education, private schools in India are trying to match this spirit and provide Education that equips students with 21st century skills. The young ones we are nurturing today will be global citizens in the true sense, connected with each other like never before.

Apart from academics and staying abreast of technological advances, they need to understand global cultures and respect different belief systems. The world is facing tremendous resource pressures, and global warming is a big threat – children need to embrace sustainable ways of living and help create a better world.
