“While educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts”, said by Dalai Lama is the guiding force which the Chairman of Aravali group holds as firm belief for his team to follow religiously. Aravali chain of educational institutions is his vision turned reality. He believes that students are heart and soul of the school and for their all-round development it is important to transform experience into knowledge. He believes that emhasis should be laid on active experimentation, keen observation of self and surroundings and clear understanding of the abstract and concrete concepts by the students.
Sh. Bhadana believes his team of educationists i.e. principal and teachers should have clear vision as any organisation advances when a clear and widely understood vision creates tension between real and the ideal, pushing people to work together to reduce the gaps, aiding decision making, attracting and motivating talent, maintaining focus, instilling strategic leadership and creating a legacy. He is of the opinion that for shared learning goals and collaboration it is important that community should walk hand in hand with educational institutions. It will not only support personalised student learning but also helps in nurturing collaboration and reflective practices.

According to Ms Deepti providing a space to flourish and realise their potential is the goal with which Aravali International Schools open their gates every day for the new age learners.
These great minds and souls are the global citizens of tomorrow. To provide them with methods, materials, their values, putting together the elements and application of abstraction in particular situation is what she looks forward to everyday.
She emphasises, “Times are changing, lets change with them and accept them with open arms.” She wants all the parents to be partners in this endeavour.
Education today is in the metamorphosis phase in economic, social and technological spheres. At Aravali we ensure that during this transition, education must continue to deliver its mission of supporting students to develop as persons, citizens and professionals. A better understanding about the ways our world is changing is a key first step in this direction. For that, Ms Gurvinder Sohi, believes that offering the latest updated curricula and atmosphere becomes pertinent and helps students tremendously.
She emphasises that an amalgamation of blended and experiential learning at Aravali enables students to progress at their own pace with first hand learning. State-of-the-art infrastructure, NEP aligned pedagogy, well trained and seasoned staff empower students to learn, grow and lead a successful life.
According to her, “Discipline, moral and ethical values at Aravali are like breathing organs as these build integrity, credibility, leadership and strong decision-making skills amongst our students.”
