The school has been founded on the core belief that the objective of learning in the 21st century is to raise mindful, conscientious individuals who root for competence over competitiveness and aspire to live a life of happiness and fulfilment.
We wish to kindle a positive change in the country’s prevailing education system and be a school where children are inspired to be happy every day, living meaningful lives and creating value for themselves and for those around them.
No Limit Curriculum
A no-limit person has no internally imposed limitations and they refuse to allow outsiders to place any limits on them.
Our ‘No-Limit Curriculum’ is about children discovering their own ‘No Limitless’. The curriculum will provide a nurturing and stimulating space for children to learn and grow.
Your Child’s New Journey Begins With A Small Step
While most other schools are still focussed on knowledge and grades, Pragyanam’s focus is on developing key life skills and making the children life ready
We have different spaces for individual study/reflection, indoor and outdoor study, small and large group activities, indoor and outdoor performance areas.
Our class size is a maximum of 25 students. For Nursery and Kindergarten, there are 2 teachers to every section. From class 1, there will be subject specific teachers in the class. The staff-student ratio of the school will be 1:10 as there are additional teachers for specific domains.
The School is affiliated with the CBSE board. While we understand the value of International Boards, the mainstream in India is still CBSE. Being affiliated to CBSE, we pursue the methods of learning prescribed by various successful curricula. Affiliating to International Boards would have increased costs for parents and also reduced options for them, therefore our decision to remain with CBSE while innovating on all other fronts.

- Pottery and Sculpture
We provide air conditioned buses and cabs as transport. However, parents can directly pick and drop their children if they so wish. Wherever allowed, the buses will drop children to the closest point possible. For specific pickup points, please discuss with transport department at the time of admission. Also, the buses we have are GPS-enabled.
Security of children is maintained at international levels in our school.
Normal school hours are from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. After this, we offer daycare till 6:30 pm (charges extra). During this time, children are free to do any activity that interests them, for example, creative arts, performing arts, sports, doing research, homework support, nap time, etc.

Our pedagogy approach is based on neurosciences – ensuring learning is effective (relevant, deep with long term retention). We focus on student work with real world connect – primarily projects that address an essential question; the process of completing the project covers selected parts of the curriculum, and is then publicly exhibited. This also embeds teamwork, higher order thinking skills into the curriculum. Most importantly, the learning approach at Pragyanam aims to create effective lifelong learners that are comfortable with their own selves and the use of technology as it evolves – to hit the ground running (when they graduate). Pragyanam offers a transformational learning experience to students with the help of a robust and inventive academic curriculum called the ‘No-Limit Curriculum’.
Students are given a problem/challenge to solve (e.g. what happened to the missing malaysian airlines flight) or a project to create (a public exhibition of egyptian artefacts).
In either approach, the students are guided through the curriculum bits (what they need to learn) in order to create the project or solve the problem. So for example in the MH137 problem, they will learn geography, atmospheric pressure, seas and oceans, distance, speed and velocity, fractions and percentages (no. of passengers vs capacity), buoyancy (archimedes) and so on. It is the pedagogy team that decides the minimum scope and depth of concepts to be covered in a particular problem – but children often go beyond.
Don’t forget that a project is only a visible demonstration of “inter-related concepts” learnt, individual concepts are learnt using various other methods.
Teachers are specifically trained for 3 months in our methodology and philosophy before the start of the session. Apart from initial training, there will be ongoing training.
