The IDEALS in our school

With boundaries fast merging into one another, students are exposed to myriad international experiences through exploration trips that provide a 360 degree experiential learning. A democratically-elected student council is encouraged to voice the concerns of the community. A strong awareness of the environment is created through water and power audits, rain water harvesting, composting, cleanliness drives. The school strives to keep the flame of curiosity and adventure burning through various activities such as mountaineering, camping, rappelling, rafting, that nurture the love for outdoors. The elected school captain body plans and initiates projects, inspire their team of students to co-exist as a community with utmost responsibility and mindfulness, thereby demonstrating remarkable leadership. Community service is an integral part and students are consciously made aware that they are part of the larger community and that one must give back in any way one can.

What being a Round Square school means to us
