MISSION OF OIS
To evoke in the children a deep sense of goodness and beauty, that can make them stand apart in our present society in an uninfluenced manner.
LOCATION AND CLIMATE
The school is about 25 kms. from the ancient temple town of Nasik and the famous Jyotirlinga of Trimbakeshwar is 6 kms. down the road. It is located amidst the beautiful and hilly terrain of Anjaneri Hills
Orchids evoke a delightful sense of amazement, joy, refinement and innocence. As a school, we draw a few essentials of our educational philosophy from this awesome evocation and hence our name, Orchid!
CANVAS OF EDUCATION
We believe that every individual is an integral part of the cosmos, not a separate entity, and that he or she is truly unique. We believe that the job of an educational institution is to help every child to identify and bring out his or her own abilities and talents.
WHY to Choose OIS ?
IN THE LAP OF NATURE, HOME AWAY FROM HOME
Our school is green and rich in flora and fauna throughout the year. Majestic mountains with breathtaking waterfalls, visible in monsoons, surround our school. Due to the undulating landscape and the many trees, the school is quiet and serene at all times, truly in the lap of nature. Our well-qualified and caring staff is modest, simple, and affectionate.
HEALTH AID & SAFETY
SAFETY, CLEANLINESS, FIRST AID AND EMERGENCY
We have a round-the clock guarded campus. Our Residential Medical Officer and Nurse live in the Health Care Center. A Consulting Medical Officer visits every evening. We take the students to specialists in the town, if required, in our ambulance. We keep the parents informed. We have an ambulance and residential drivers for any emergency.
NO JUNK FOOD
WHOLESOME, NUTRITIOUS, VEGETARIAN MEALS WITH EGGS
We provide nutritious, wholesome, and tasty vegetarian meals covering different regions of our country with a sweet at lunch. We serve milk twice a day and eggs at breakfast. We would not like to indulge the children in junk and fast food, which is obesity prone. We also do not permit chocolates due to the detrimental impact on the teeth and the adverse effects on the eating habits and patterns of children. Our campus is cashless and we do not have a canteen for children to buy items.
UNIQUE ALL ROUND DEVELOPMENT
We would like our children to excel academically with an overall, multi-dimensional competence, confidence, and understanding of matters, so that they might experience life in a responsible, complete, and beautiful manner. We give them a taste of our ancient and eternal humanistic and human values with a modern, rationalistic, and scientific attitude.
CHILD CENTRED AND ORIENTED ENVIRONMENT
We engage our children co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, which over a period develop in them a deep relationship with nature. After a few years in our campus, many children do not crave for stimulating technological gadgets, which can lead to attention deficit, hyperactivity, and reduced attention span. We provide many opportunities to the students to explore their talents, and capacities.
PARENT TEACHER MEETINGS
The school arranges PTMs’ and other curricular activities where the parents are invited to witness. Parents may meet the students on these occasions. The school also allows the parents to visit the campus on their ward’s birthday and have lunch on the campus premises with the child.
INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION TO STUDENTS
The number of students per classroom never goes beyond 25 to maintain an overall staff to student ratio is 1:5. In our homes away from home also we have a maximum of 15 children in the care of each house parent, who are affectionate teachers engaging children in enriching ways to improve their emotional and intellectual wellbeing. The students receive an almost individual attention in all domains of the school.
