The School



We provide the perfect education for your child every day



R amana Vidyalaya was established in 2005 by N.S. Educational Trust with the aim of providing quality education to children from varied socioeconomic backgrounds. What started off as a free after-school tuition center is now a well-established institution that provides holistic education to more than 1200 students from all family backgrounds - families from the Tsunami rehabilitation projects to returning expatriates.

We are affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) (affiliation number: 1930268) and admit students from Pre-Kindergarten to Class 12.

Along with the academic program, the school also ensures moral education and character building of the students. The infrastructure has been created to nurture the overall development of the child with experienced and committed teachers. We strive to keep our teacher-student ratio is 1:30. Our students enjoy learning in well-ventilated, comfortable, stimulating, wifi-enabled tech-classrooms; a student-friendly library; well-equipped laboratories and a spacious playground. All of this is set in an attractive natural environment wherein our students also have created horticulture beds for growing vegetables.
