What are the facilities available for co-curricular activities?

At DeepJyoti School, co-curricular activities would be an integral part of the School environment. This implies that co-curricular’s would not be something that we would need to look at separately but rather something which is so intricately interwoven with academics, that it would be a way of life for students and faculty at DeepJyoti.

The School has provision for Music and Dance Rooms, performance areas in every class, activity areas on every alternate floor, a huge multipurpose hall along with an entire skip floor to be used for various activities by students.

 
 

Visits

Before I decide to put my child in, do I get to see the campus and speak to the teachers?

What would be the School policy on volunteering by Parents?

At DeepJyoti School, we not only encourage but actively seek Parental participation in school activities. You are invited to attend a day at your child’s school, be a part of the process and volunteer for any of the umpteen activities at School – Art sessions, Story crafts, sport sessions or any other activity that you would love to be a part of.

What’s the idea behind having lesser number of students in each class?

The idea is to allow for maximum engagement and interaction between teachers and students. We would be practicing 'Differentiated Instructions’ so that each child’s unique needs are taken care of in a way that suits him or her.

Our aim is to empower our teachers so that they can create free flowing and intellectually stimulating classroom experiences.

DeepJyoti School would have a healthy teacher- student ratio that would be in-line with best-practices.
