They have a chain of schools in Houston and having achieved success in providing quality education there, have come to India to further their passion. Their experience of more than two decades has helped them shape a vision that is extraordinary and unique. Dedicated to nurturing excellence in spirit and a deep love for life, Excelsior to them is a milieu in which the larger existential issues could be explored in an atmosphere of freedom and responsibility.
