Way back in 2005, when a group of enlightened souls came together with a single vision of bringing on to the soils of India a school that was like no other – unique in concept and approach, Sadhbhavana World School came into being. They realized that every school has three common takeaways – intellectual content, humane content and social content. However, some schools are mediocre, some good and some are great. What is that distinguishing factor that makes schools great? So began their quest – they visited some of the best schools in India and abroad, to research what makes a school great. This study gave then 444 quality components of a great school. They also realized that no school has all of them at the same level. While in some schools academics is “great”, in another administrative systems are and yet again in another the infrastructure. Nevertheless the group decided to strive to make as many as possible in the “great” category at Sadhbhavana and thus the 444 quality components were divided into 10 distinct baskets based on the broad category they belong to. With this wealth of knowledge and a vision to make the school one of the top 10 schools in the country over a period of 10 years, Sadhbhavana World School was established in 2008. Situated on an expansive campus spanning 29 acres, Sadhbhavana World School soon established itself as a unique school in the city of Calicut within a few years itself. And then in 2014, 5 years before the makers of the school envisioned it, the school became one of the Top 10 schools in the country. Over the past 5 years Sadhbhavana World Schools is continuously ranked in all the popular rankings in India in the Top 10 category.

Social Responsibility - COSS Club As the current system of education is disconnected from the needs of society, Sadhbhavana reconstructs the pillars of social and humane learning. For creating a collective impact on society, Sadhbhavana has a special club that fosters emotional intelligence and empathy. COSS Club enriches education through projects which build social responsibility by contributing towards community. The club designs and implements projects in diverse areas like entrepreneurship, agriculture, research, city navigation, health, relationships, racial equality and environmental conservation.
Career Center - With the rapidly changing scenarios in the world of work and education, the need for counselling and guidance for children to choose the right path has become critically important. This is because career guidance and counselling build lifelong skills in making well-informed educational and occupational choices. The choice students make at this point of their life is the start of the journey to the professional they are yet to become. Sadhbhavana Career Center provides this service to its students from grade 9 and above with the aim of transforming students into career aspirants. Personalized guidance enables the students to access the information which help them create a framework on the career they are interested in as well as where and how to apply to the top colleges in the country and abroad.
Radio Doodle - Operating a school radio has far-reaching benefits for achieving educational outcomes across various key learning areas. Sadhbhavana World School has its very own radio called “Radio Doodle, Nothing Serious About It…” Radio Doodle is a platform that allows children and staff to freely express their views. It also provides entertainment on campus during the school break times. For instance, “Fresh Morning” is an entertaining talk show by the RJs. This show feature interviews, songs, movie reviews etc. The radio is run by a team of staff and a group of RJs, writers, researchers all selected from among the students.
Talento - Building life skills is essential in helping children develop good habits for long-term stability, wellness and success. Sadhbhavana’s Talento Program is meant to impart essential skills to students. Talento strives to provide exposure to those skills students will require when they start living adult lives. Activities like tyre changing, plumbing, safely using kitchen appliances, changing the fuse, and so on, all go a long way in making students independent.
Real Life Experience - Mannappam - To understand traditions and cultures, it is important to experience them. However, today students have little or no exposure to such a thing. Digitalization is a killer when it comes to tradition routes and the benefits of such routes. Mannappam is Sadhbhavana’s unique summer camp where many early traditions are practised. Children are taken on an experience that focuses on their traditional roots with traditional craft, art forms and lifestyle. This includes activities like a visit to tribal village, creating and tasting traditional dishes, experiencing some old art forms, historic games and crafts besides other fun activities. This helps teach the campers important life lessons and have a huge impact on their lives.
