How to choose the right school

If you look at any successful celebrity or a sports person’s career graph, a large part of their personality has been shaped by some of the lessons they learnt at their alma mater.

Even in the biopics made on famous cricketers MS Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar, the director made sure to portray their journey in the school, showing their teachers, friends and the kind of notorious activities, they were involved in, during the school days. Their schools were not necessarily the most famous school of their town, but students like Dhoni and Sachin made their school a brand in the years to come.

School plays a very important role in developing a person’s career. In most cases, school is a place, where people spend the most precious years of their life, transitioning from adolescence to adult age.

In Mahabharata, Guru Dronacharya School of Archery was so famous that every kid of that era wanted to get admission there, and only Guru Drona could chose whom to pick whom not to.

Look at the turn of the events in the present era, today we have such a large plethora of schools that now a parent has to choose which school will be good for their kid and which won’t!

So, what makes a school a good school? Is it the building or the infrastructure, or the large playground or the posh facilities? The most appropriate answer is; the teachers, the support staff and the atmosphere inside the campus makes a school standout from the rest and at St. Andrews School, Bangalore, your child is in good hands. A team of dedicated teachers work together ensuring that all students get the most from their education at St. Andrews, Whitefield.

The world could have never witnessed the charisma of MS Dhoni’s cricketing prowess if his school teacher hadn’t recognised his potential to be a wicketkeeper-batsman and asked him to focus on cricket rather than football, and as they say the rest is history. His leadership brought India, two world cups and several other trophies.

So, a good teacher’s role is to identify the hidden potentials inside a child and nurture them. School lays the perfect foundation stone on which a student goes on to make a great career in the coming years.
