Welcome to Anisha Global School(AGS),Pune !Inspired by the Future Schools@Singapore programme, we, together with the Singaporean partners,Heulab & Alpha CEOlution, have undertaken this wonderful schooling initiative,that aims to create a learning nation empowered by research & values embedded competencies & driven by the theory of Karma; a learning nation that educates the children to be ahead of change & to create a world of infinite creative & productive possibilities, a world of happiness, progress ,prosperity & love. As Robert M.Hutchins put it "Education is not to reform students or amuse them or to make them expert technicians.It is to unsettle their minds, widen their horizons, inflame their intellects, teach them to think straight, if possible."
At AGS, we are all efforts to promote such education.

In all our sincere efforts,we aim to offer education that parallels the best of world’s schooling but we do value & nurture the culture of Indianness that has inspired the civilisations across the world.Max Muller once said "whatever sphere of the human mind may be selected for special study,whether language,religion.mythology,or philosophy, whether laws,customs,primitive art or primitive science, we must go to India, because some of the most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up there, and there only." .It is a known fact that strong foundations build great future. We have invested all our efforts & thought processes to build a campus that promotes our vision of blended integrative learning, balancing the traditional pedagogy & modern technology, e.g.real time collaboration,Learning on the Move, Anisha on Mobile, Next Generation Interactive Books& more.
Events & Enrichment programs happen to be the integral parts of Anisha.The National Robotics Championship , Exchange-Link for a week from the Students from Andhra Pradesh ,French Independence Day ,National Science Day, the Play on "A passage to India", Agri & Bio-culture & Informatics were some of the events held in the last academic session. These events encourage the students to appreciate the diverse culture, civilisation and community & celebrate global citizenship.We understand & appreciate the uniqueness of each student. The team members at the school focus on identifying each child’s strength & nurture the passion for excellence. After all Anisha also signifies .
As Tim Fargo said "If we spark a student’s passion, we unleash a powerful force upon the world." We together with you,the parents, should try and ignite that passion in every student.We welcome you to Anisha & look forward to building a meaningful collaborative society of learning!
