Q. What is the pupil -teacher ratio ?

Q. Why do we not have school uniform?
A. In harmony with its philosophy, Shikshantar has chosen not to promote a uniform clothing policy. Children come to school in simple, comfortable clothes. Once they understand and relate to the school routine, they choose clothes that are appropriate to their routine at school. Individual choice of clothing allows children to express themselves as individuals and also to become more responsible. Parents are encouraged to dialogue with their children about the benefits of clothing choice. Please also discuss the benefits of clothing styles in terms of comfort level. We believe that freedom of clothing choice with a growing awareness about practical elements such as comfort, colour, cost etc. will enable young children to appreciate an evolving degree of responsibility within themselves
Q. Why do we not provide lunch to pre primary classes?
A. The children of pre – primary classes are in school for a short duration, from 8:15am -12:15pm. The children have one Tiffin break during the day which is enough to sustain their energy levels till the end of the day. They go back home by lunch time. Lunch is provided to children from classes I upwards who remain in school till 3:15pm.
