    The children here are taught to rely on their own powers and abilities through the following practices: Yoga, gardening, weaving, book-binding, contribution to the society, community service, environmental protection

    A community of best &

    inspired learners

    At the primary level, all the scholastic subjects which are taught such as English, Hindi, Bengali, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science, General Knowledge, Value Education, are dealt with the process of ‘learning by doing’.

    For each of the subjects, an emphasis laid on the following:

    • Thought provoking interaction.
    • Correlation of past experiences with the present situation.
    • Usage of appropriate resources available for catering the inquisitive tender minds.
    • Application of technology in various activities.

    My son has been reading in the school for the past 13 years. I’ve seen the school from the times when it had lesser students. From there, we as a family grew upto being one of the best schools in the area. Academics, sports, co-cirricular activities – you name it and we got it. And with the current modernization and improvisation of the infrastructure, Douglas is all set to write a golden chapter for itself.
