Parveen Shaikh
Greetings from The Somaiya School !!
The Somaiya School is a learning space designed specifically keeping in mind the needs of today’s students. It is a place where students feel safe, both physically and emotionally, where all types of learners experience, explore, question, design, innovate and create their own ‘Aha’ moments!!
We offer the CBSE curriculum, which is enhanced with the best practices from around the world. The students are given a range of opportunities to achieve excellence in academic, creative, social, cultural and sporting pursuits. Our teachers work with a growth mindset and believe that all students can learn and be successful, that each one of them is unique, a powerful learner who is challenged and rewarded for taking risks and rising to challenges.
Learning at TSS goes way beyond the books and the classroom. Our conscious endeavour to shift the paradigm from teaching to learning takes many forms. Students learn by doing, while working as a team, on stage debating, by doing in-depth research, while painting a picture, writing a poem or making an impressive presentation. Our students are emerging as confident, young thinkers who freely speak their mind. They are groomed with the skills, mind set and attitudes to face the challenges of the future.
Professional development helps the teachers of our school to stay ahead and implement the latest trends in education. We spare no effort to make the educational experience of our students meaningful and relevant to the needs of the time.
We value relationships and connect and encourage our parent community to support our commitment to provide quality education.
I am honoured to lead this growing learning community.
