Chairman MESSAGE

Educating my two wonderful children in the very best of schools and my own education in a residential school led me to believe that we need many more such good schools in our country as our huge resource of youth deserve it. My father's thoughts were no different. He beckoned us to start a quality school. Encouraged thus we built KOTHARI INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, (KIS) our very first, in Noida in 2006.No sooner were the doors open, the school had an overwhelming response. Today KIS has about 1600 students with 100+ teaching staff.Since inception, KIS has been continuously receiving favorable ratings for its quality education delivery, infrastructure, and holistic approach in tranacting multiple curriculums.

The confidence we gained with KIS has inspired us to bring MANSUKHBHAI KOTHARI NATIONAL SCHOOL, (MKNS) to city of Pune. The choice of Pune was easy as we were already a part of city's endeavor, through H&M Royal, for providing quality housing. MKNS is an opportunity for us to join Pune's education initiatives and reap the benefits of its culture and history.

We looked at MKNS from the context of our nation and possible needs of our youth for their future successes; and decided on a model to serve those causes and bring good education to neighbourhood communities.

Join hands with MKNS Pune and secure your child's future. By entrusting your child to us you are ensuring safe, caring and learner friendly environment.

The school offers a variety of learning opportunities. I hope the school prospectus will give a clear idea of values and facilities that will be available to the students of classes from Play Group to class X. The entire purpose of education is not to restrict itself to imparting bookish knowledge only but also to inculcate humanitarian values like wisdom, compassion, courage, humility, integrity and reliability in a student.

I can very proudly say that we, at MKNS, prepare each child to become independent thinkers and develop integrated personalities. MKNS is at the doorstep of a new challenge and opportunity with a pledge of making itself a centre of excellence where a stress free and caring environment is there for nurturing the young minds. For this, we seek your vital co-operation and support for all times to accomplish the high standards.

We are confident that this school is the best place for your child. We welcome your active interest and involvement in the progress and activities of your child. We look forward to your continuous support.

Message From EDUCATION ADVISOR

In a nation's economic growth, new knowledge shall be the key driver to attain highest quality of life for every citizen. Nations that borrow or buy knowledge and know- how will be at a disadvantage in competition with the creators. Our country once known to be innovative in creating new frontiers of knowledge drifted away somewhere down the time. It is in this context that we need to re look and redesign the ways in which we transact learning in our classrooms . We at MKNS realize the need to empower our youth with the abilities to visualize and create.

We need to engage our students in learning with the purpose to enhance their higher order abilities to think. It is, therefore, imperative for us to shift from rote- memorization centric learning to learning to think and do. We plan to make our schools digital and support learning progression to ensure that every student learns effectively at every stage. The focus of assessment will be to identify the learning levels of each student and personalize teaching through flexible transaction of curriculum. We will strive to provide opportunities for our students to explore and discover the depth of concepts and application skills. As a need in the current times and for the good of students' success, parent partnership is the key to good schooling.

At MKNS we recognize this and invite active parent participation in the education of your child. We believe that this partnership will help the evolution of school into progressive educational innovation. While we feel delighted with the progress made, we assure you that we will not rest and laurels but work towards improving the quality always. By entrusting your child to the care competent MKNS fraternity, you will be making a life time choice!
