Education involves not only the rearing and training of a child, but also the strengthening of the powers of the body & mind with which the child is born. This is an integral part of development of the faculties lying dormant in humans.
It is the motto of “Calcutta Public School” to impart Quality Education that teaches the students to learn the values of integrity and honesty, to think rationally & to judge logically. In this institution we believe that pursuit of knowledge is not the only aim of education. Staffing of the child with facts related to Science, Literature, History and Geography is useless until we can teach the child how to use this knowledge. Thus, acquisition of knowledge from books is not enough. One must be taught how to modify and mould this knowledge to suit one’s need. Knowledge must be acquired with the mission of using it not only for one’s own benefit but also for the uplift of the society & prosperity of the country.
Though success in life is the ultimate goal of education, yet success is not to be achieved at the cost of the basic values. Person who can rightly understand what is to be attained and what is to be abandoned is fit to be defined as a man of character. Thus “Calcutta Public School” aims at building up the character and personality of the students, for we believe that the essence of education lies in the development of a well rounded personality that combines the virtues of strength and humility. In fact, a child, like a seed, has a bundle of faculties hidden in him. It is the teacher, the gardener who has to nourish, protect and help the child grow to the full in order to be a good citizen.
Our school is a special place where the students, teachers and guardians work together to establish an atmosphere ideal for the development of the personalities of the children. Consequently, our students have made a marks in their chosen vocations, be it in the field of education, public service, as sportsmen, in liberal arts or in the fields of engineering and medicines. The pains that we take in their grooming show in the blossoming of their talents in diverse fields.
We are already recognized as one of the premier schools in the comity of schools not only in Kolkata but in the eastern region of the country as a whole. Our students secure consistently brilliant results in ICSE and ISC examinations making all of us proud, year after year.
Our teachers are all specialists in their respective fields and take utmost care to ensure that the diverse student community benefit from their expert handling. Our role as a teacher is varied, it is not solely to impart knowledge, it is to inspire, motivate, develop self belief frameworks, help the students to experience and to inspire them to be creative, and using that creativity find solutions of their own. We are more of a facilitator than the old fashioned class room teachers. We are forever bringing in newer concepts in teaching commensurate with the requirements of an ever changing and evolving society.
