WHAT SETS ‘VKE’ APART
VKE gets “MODEL SCHOOL” tag from International Baccalaureate. Bringing an international perspective to education is essential to ensure lofty standards and equitable outcomes for the journey to the future for all children, for all students.
Saarada Ghosh: VKE offers the blend of IB curriculum along with Vedic wisdom concurrently nurture and strengthen the intellectual, emotional, physical, and social development of a child. If we study about education from 5th Century BC to the 21st Century, from greatest philosophers, poets, educators, historians, theologians, politicians and world leaders, we will get deep insights that very clearly spell out what actually matters for the 21st century children. It is not the grades, standardized testing or teacher evaluation that matter at the end of the day.Hence as Swami Vivekananda says,“We want that education, by which, character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which one can stand proudly on one’s own feet”.
The graduates have received offers from world prestigious institutions such as- Edinburgh University, University College London (UCL), King’s College-London, University of Sydney-Sydney, Erasmus University,among many others. Our aim is that every student be well placed in an institution where they can gain practical knowledge, hands on experience, unlimited opportunities infused with creativity in thought, offering rich cultural heritage and diversity thus creating beautiful human beings. Our entire spectrum of teaching and learning pedagogy is based on IB coupled with Vedanta, “One lion can make India proud, rule the world and not millions of sheep”.

She says, it has been 4 years since my journey at VKE ended; nevertheless, its teachings are engrained within me. VKE helped shape my identity and nurtured me to realize my true potential. After graduating from DP, I became an inquisitive, responsible, and confident learner. As a designer, I believe my strongest tools are empathy, respect, integrity, and open-mindedness; all of which were nurtured in me through the many years I spent as an IB student at VKE. As I enter the world of jobs and professionalism, I have no doubt these skills and abilities would continue to advocate my steps to make this world a better place.
