We Believe: "We believe that every human being is empowered to develop her/his best potential".
We See: We see empowerment as the distinguishing feature of all our educational effort and are convinced that it takes place best in a school which is a dynamic entity involved in discerning the needs of our times and flexible enough to readjust its structures and activities to respond to them.
We Recognize: We recognize that it requires an atmosphere where all the values of selfless service, man-making and nation-building are lived out by all and where striving for excellence at the level of one’s potential is an essential element.
We Accept: We accept that this demands a certain level of awareness at administrative and staff levels so that it becomes a continuous process affecting staff, student and parents and taking precedence over all other motivations.
We Recognize and Strongly Affirm: We recognize and strongly affirm that the special thrust of our Institution becomes credible in India today, where ‘Service before self’ is lived out both in attitude and structures.
We Prioritize: We prioritize the practice of the important human values and encourage Students to gain confidence so that they grow as the responsible citizens of the country.
