A Dream Becomes Reality: The Sri Sarada Niketan Public School In 2009, Sri Sarada Niketan Public School opened its doors, with the aim to provide free education in a boarding school environment for impoverished children, including orphans and street children in India. Our goal is to “level the playing field” by giving these children a strong foundation that will enable them to pursue a higher education or obtain vocational training.
We are an independent school that nurtures not just students’ intellectual ability and curiosity but also their personal and social growth and civic conscience. Opportunities extend well beyond the classroom to athletic competitions, artistic pursuits, and school leadership experiences.
Along with a classroom education, we create a home environment, providing guidance and teaching life values. Our holistic approach to caring for these children incorporates nutritional, medical, and psychological services to ensure that their specific needs are met by qualified providers. Many of our children have experienced the overwhelming loss of a parent or family, and benefit from much needed psychological counseling. A school nurse is readily available to provide urgent care, immunizations, and preventative care services.
Instilling the concept of self-reliance versus co-dependence is critical to the success of our mission. We aim to develop well-rounded students through exposure to a balanced curriculum which includes math, science, and the liberal arts.
