About KHS Baner

About Us

Dr. Kanchan Deshpande

Principal

John Dewey’s philosophy of education highlights the importance of imagination to drive thinking and learning forward, and for teachers to provide opportunities for students to suspend judgement, engage in playful consideration of possibilities, and explore doubtful possibilities.

 

He says, “Education is not preparation for life, but is life itself”. This philosophy is followed at KHS, Baner.

We at KHS – Baner provide ample opportunities to all our students to explore and identify their own potential. Every child gets exposure and creativity is nurtured by providing safe and competitive environment.
We are committed to realize our vision and mission and create global citizens who are driven by values and academic excellence. Recognizing that each student is different and special, we cater to each child as per their capacities to truly empower them and bring out the best in them.

Our Vision

To be a joyful learning community, nurturing creativity for a sustainable future.

Our learning philosophy is based on three principles:

OVERALL DEVELOPMENT

We develop the child in a holistic manner through academics, co-curricular and extracurricular activities. Our activities boost academic learning as well as develop interpersonal and leadership skills. We take great care to inculcate emotional sensitivity, compassion and a sense of social awareness in our children to help them grow into balanced individuals.

BUILDING CONFIDENCE

We believe that an environment which is free of fear and full of opportunities is a prerequisite for optimum development. We encourage collaborative learning and provide a multitude of experiences through school life. Our teachers empower the students to have confidence in their abilities and believe in making their dreams a reality.

STUDENT CENTRIC EDUCATION

Every child is different. Our teaching methods and activities make the student the centre of the education model. We acknowledge the variety in learners in terms of needs, abilities, interests and learning styles. The teachers give their best to guide every student as per his or her need.

“At the primary level, a teacher has a permanent impact by shaping a child’s life and perspective. We take great pride and care to fulfil this enormous responsibility. We learn and grow together in the process of helping our children learn.”

Our staff is truly the heartbeat of our the school.

All our teachers are very enthusiastic about their work and are always willing to learn, explore and experiment. They have an empathetic attitude towards the students and strive to make their teaching methods interactive and student centric. Teachers take the initiative and frequently attend outside courses, workshops, orientations as well as in-house trainings. They do extensive research, undergo evaluations and adopt current and best teaching practices and subject knowledge. At KHS, we are committed to staying on par with the rapidly changing needs of the world. We encourage peer education amongst our teachers. Sharing the ‘AHA’ moments during the quality circle is one such activity when teachers learn from each other’s experiences through sharing it and offering feedback.

Counselling unit

Our counselling unit conducts interactive sessions and activities to help students cope with issues like emotions, attitudes and peer pressure in healthy and assertive ways. Our counsellors play an important role in helping secondary students and their parents during the transition from childhood to adolescence and onward to adulthood. They guide and help children at both the ends of the learning spectrum.
Our ‘Special Needs’ programme caters to children with learning disabilities. The ’Gifted and Talented’ programme provides guidance to children with exceptional abilities in one or more areas, the opportunity to explore/nurture their potential. It is only through encouraging our young geniuses that we can truly progress.
