We are delighted to learn that Lawrence, Sanawar is ranked India #1 in the survey’s new category of vintage legacy co-ed boarding schools. This is welldeserved because the Board of Governors and successive headmasters have taken great care to preserve our 175-year-old school’s rich heritage while simultaneously modernising curriculums, pedagogies and infrastructure. During the past two years of the pandemic in particular we made determined efforts to upgrade the school’s digital infrastructure and trained our teachers in latest online pedagogies and technologies. Now with resumption of in-person schooling we have gone the extra mile to provide improved academic, co-curricular and sports education to our students. We have also upgraded infrastructure and built new facilities including a new indoor shooting range and sports complex. This justifies our top scores on the parameters of sports education and infrastructure provision. Moreover, we are especially thrilled that the school is ranked #1 for quality of alumni as our graduates have contributed immensely to nation building.
