Our Philosophy, Vision, Mission & Values
Learning never stops. Commencing from the time we draw our first breath till we let out our last, we are always learning and adapting.
We believe that Education simply cannot be imparted through rote learning alone. It has to blend concepts with investigation and practical learning. We also believe education encompasses teaching children to remain well-grounded despite their privileged background.
Bloomingdales Pre-primary, which follows the play-way method of learning, exemplifies this philosophy, where our young learners are taught academic concepts through a practical and self-exploratory hands-on approach.
We carry this forward at JML School, where experiential learning plays an important role in the understanding of concepts, be it through project work, in the laboratory, on a stage, or on the sports field.
The words of Albert Einstein, “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one learned in school”, best sums up our philosophy.
To fill a niche in the education system which provides a good blend between academics, and skill-building, whilst inculcating in students, both Indian traditional values and International contemporary thought.
To ignite and nurture the spirit of inquiry in young learners.
To build an ecosystem that promotes thinking and learning by providing excellent curricular and co-curricular programmes.
To continuously upgrade teaching skills through ongoing training programmes for teachers.
To inculcate amongst its students, a relevant value system.
To be in all things, contemporary.
Blend of Indian Tradition and International Contemporary Thought
We introduce all our students to the great sages, warriors, teachers, and kings who have been a focal point of Indian history, culture, philosophy, and values with the endeavour for them to imbibe their greatness. Blending these values with contemporary learning methodology helps our students apply the wisdom of the past, to handle the challenges of the 21st Century.
We shape our students to be global citizens with awareness, empathy, and sensitivity towards our environment and planet. With climate change and the health of our planet, being a burning issue in the 21st century, as never before, we teach our students from the toddler stage about being mindful of our surroundings and the environment as a whole. Caring for all life, be it human, plant or animal, and instilling a sense of responsibility and duty towards them all, is a value that runs through the very fabric of our institution.
We recognize that childhood needs to be full of joy and thus we strive to ensure that our young learners are in a cheerful environment conducive to holistic development and growth.
In the words of our Founder, Dr. Madhuri Shah,
“The purpose of education is to cultivate the whole man, develop a desire for goodness and a concern for others. Individual growth has to be harnessed with social and ethical values. JML School strives to develop in students a lifelong love of learning, responsible citizenship, and personal integrity. We are a community based on trust, mutual respect, and compassion. We know that our students will leave the school with a commitment to service to others and to environmental stewardship, and with a greater understanding of themselves and of their responsibilities in a global society.”
It is around this fulcrum that we have developed our school, in all spheres, from academics to co-curricular, extra-curricular activities, and sports.
