Greenwood High International School: Unlocking the Doors to All-Round Excellence

Niru Agarwal,TrusteeHard to say, but it the is bitter truth that due to the outdated and traditional education system which is followed by most of the institutions in India, millions of students are becoming the victims of an unrealistic, pointless, and mindless rat race. The need of the hour is a significant academic infrastructure, where students are provided with the opportunity to learn, understand and apply knowledge in real-life situations. This will not only foster creativity, ethos, and values, but help them to become future-ready.

Offering exactly the same, while inspiring and facilitating students as per their passion and intellect, Greenwood High International School, a Bangalore-based educational institution, is rising ahead in the education sector, with an aim to provide the young generation with the bright and fruitful future they deserve.

Founded in 2004, this institution is headed by Niru Agarwal (Trustee, Greenwood High International School), an educationist and a business leader who believes that education must evoke zeal in students to dream, act and achieve their goals. “We work to cultivate a sense of allegiance among students for their cultural heritage, and to instill compassion, respect, and obedience in them to make them balanced learners and responsible leaders,” states Niru. Under her stewardship and a unique approach to education, Greenwood has reached newer heights of excellence in moulding the young minds of tomorrow.

A comprehensive institution with an exhilarating curriculum emphasizing on
acquiring knowledge, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, Greenwood imparts students with the skills required for progress in the competitive 21st century. “We prepare students to compete and cooperate on a global stage by enhancing their skills,” avers Niru. At Greenwood, students are taught in a natural and engaging way, which empowers them to use their academic learning as a foothold for their emotional, psychological and social development. In a nutshell, Greenwood’s pedagogy guides learners to become active, empathetic and socially responsible citizens of the society.

Since its inception, Greenwood offers pre-primary, primary and secondary education. The institute follows IBDP (International Baccalaureate Diploma Program), IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) and ICSE (Indian Certificate of Secondary Education) curricula. But what makes Greenwood different is its unique delivery method, due to which the entire learning process becomes fun and meaningful in such a way that the child seeks it even when they are out of the classroom, and this continues to fuel their quest for lifelong learning and development.

More than Just Academics
Apart from academics, Greenwood lays a strong focus on co-curricular activities and sports that facilitate a child’s holistic education and development, which include basketball, cricket, soccer, badminton, tennis, swimming, and more. It also has a soccer ground, cricket ground, swimming pool, basketball court, tennis and badminton courts, and an athletic field. The school also has chess, yoga and taekwondo as part of their curriculum. Greenwood High is also the first school in India to introduce Chess as a part of their curriculum.

Technology has become an integral part of our lives and hence the institute leverages technology to help students become self-reliant, and to help teachers in organizing their responsibilities. Greenwood has a great reputation globally which is evinced by the fantastic placements that it has witnessed over the last few years. With a placement statistic of 100 percent every year, Greenwood High students gain admission at prestigious universities like California Institute of Technology, Cornell University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Imperial College London, London School of Economics, Brown College and many more. In the coming year, the institute looks forward to continue the good work.

Philanthropy has been an integral part of Greenwood High since its inception. The school under the mentorship of Niru, has been actively involved in directly or indirectly supporting several government schools by providing them a healthy environment and infrastructure to pursue their initiatives.
