HISTORY

VISION & MISSION

To create a learning ecosystem that enables students to explore their heritage, discover their potential and understand their responsibility as global citizens. Our mission is to provide triggers that ignite a student’s creativity and curiosity, encouraging them to question boundaries. Our environment will instil in students the desire, capability and self-confidence to pursue excellence.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Shreyas is an integration of the philosophies of Gandhiji, Rabindranath Tagore and Madam Montessori. Self sufficiency, humility, co-existence, empathy, courage and the ability to recognise your true potential and spirit; are our primary goals.

gandhij

“Literacy in itself is no education. Literacy is not the end of education or even the beginning. By education I mean an all-round drawing out of the best in the child and man-body, mind and spirit.”

““We cannot know the consequences of suppressing a child’s spontaneity when he is just beginning to be active. We may even suffocate life itself. That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendor during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of religious veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life.”

Rabindranath_Tagore

“Education begins from birth, not with the alphabet but those early responses which the child receives from his environment.”

DESIGN & STRUCTURE

Shreyas Foundation was designed by the famous architect Shri Balkrishna Doshi. Later, additional buildings were designed by Shri Kamal Mangaldas.
