Director Profile

The Himali Boarding School, since its inception, is founded on the premises that each child is different and effort must be made to discover and nurture this individuality. A school obviously demands a certain degree of uniformity to run smoothly, thus rules and regulations cannot be twisted to serve each individual child. A standardized curriculum and routine has to be ensure homogeneity. But the basic nature, the basic emotional structure, the child innate talents, his/her inherent dislikes and weaknesses, will be considered and weighed and through diagnostic assessments, formative and summative assessments the uniqueness of each child will be assimilated and addressed. Parents have placed their faith in the Himali way since 1978. Hundreds have passed out of its portals and have achieved excellence in their field of specialization . Whether in India or abroad Himalians hold prestigious posts in the World Bank, the UN, Intel, Dell, Microsoft, Reliance, the Civil Services, the performing and fine Arts, are doctors, entrepreneurs, but most important of all are human beings who embody the values we have revered and instated - a sense of justice, of compassion, of fairness and truth. The four fold path 1. The Clarity of vision To think , the wisdom and courage to Act, the knowledge and expertise to create to make and the ability to visualize, to foresee and Change.
