India’s first residential school with globally acclaimed Singapore curriculum

Added On : 11-May-2018

Every parent wants their child to have a sound education and private boarding schools are emerging as a popular choice among today’s discerning parents.

Although the elite private boarding school model was first introduced by the British in pre-independence India, the concept of residential schooling was deeply embedded in ancient India's culture in the guise of the gurukul system.

In today's highly competitive and constantly evolving education landscape, a well-rounded boarding school education can give your child a headstart in life. Progressive boarding school education has been proven to offer several advantages vis-a-vis day schooling such as better learning outcomes owing to  smaller class sizes and close interaction with the teacher-mentors, highly qualified faculty, globally benchmarked sports and co-curricular education, nurturing independent thinkers and doers, ensuring better grooming for university life, among others.

To cater to the steady demand for holistic 21st century residential schooling in India, serial entrepreneur Jaspal Sidhu, founder of the Singapore International School/Singapore Global School Group, has joined hands with the IFIM Group of Institutions to launch Vijaybhoomi International School - a wholly residential school, offering the widely acclaimed Singapore curriculum. Centered on life skills and experiential learning, the Singapore curriculum is regarded as the best worldwide by the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, as well as the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) test.

Sprawled over 20 acres of immaculately landscaped greenery in Karjat - a picturesque hill town sited almost equidistant from Mumbai and Pune, the green pollution free campus of VIS hosts top-notch facilities for sports and co-curricular education. As part of the Singapore International School Group, VIS is a truly international school committed to nurture well rounded global citizens of tomorrow. The fully residential school also offers a weekly boarding plan - making it a perfect choice for young aspirational working couples in Mumbai and Pune. A weekly boarding plan can help the child save commute time during the week days and spend quality time with the parents on weekend.
