To explore the
full breadth and richness of India’s cultural tradition we
have built an art school which will offer lessons in
painting, graphic design, pottery & ceramics, batik, screen
painting and lithography. The music school offers tabla,
sitar , sarod, flute, piano, violin and guitar lessons.
A vital part of
the cultural life at AVS depends on the Dance School. The
AVS Dance School currently offers 3 classical dance forms -
Bharatanatyam, Kathak and Satriya. Students of all Classes
can opt for their preferred dance, be it as an Academic
Subject, an Activity or even as a Specialization.
Individual attention, interactivity emphasis the
student-centric approach of the school. It promotes hands on
learning and cutting-edge methodology. The use of
educational technology, the sprawling library with over
10,000 books and an audiovisual room, are all geared towards
stimulating curiosity and the desire to know, rather than
turning learning into an unpleasant chore.
A new initiative is the introduction of e-learning that
tutors candidates for the IITs and medical school entrance
examinations. Performances are evaluated across a spectrum
of qualitative parameters, rather than traditional
percentages. Students are encouraged, not intimidated. After
all, while academic rivalry encourages excellence, excessive
competition can daunt the young mind.
