Shikshantar is a co-educational day school affiliated with the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CICSE) Board. The school was founded in April 2003 with just three classes – nursery, kindergarten and class I. Since then it has added classes each year and presently offers education till class IX. Shikshantar claims to have evolved from the collective conviction of the core team members about children, their learning experiences and what adults can provide for them. The school believes that there is much more to education than merely teaching a syllabus and preparing children for examinations.
Shikshantar is promoted by Unitech, a reputed multinational company with established businesses in construction, real estate, entertainment and hospitality. The school is led and guided by a core team of three members: Minoti Bahri, Sanjay Prakash and Sunil Batra.
The school follows the principles of integrated education, which enables students to synchronize their physical, emotional, mental, social and inner selves. It claims to provide opportunities for appreciating the relationships between inside and outside the classroom learning experiences with the objective of nurturing the “whole” child, the person.
Shikshantar School is a day school,hence it does not provide hostel facility.
