Visionaries

Mr. Ashok Kataria (Founder of Ashoka Schools)

I have always envisaged Ashoka as a nurturer for a community of 21st century learners, where students are encouraged to develop open mindedness, spirit of inquiry, creative and critical thinking skills and self and social responsibility. Our schools collaborate with the community to instil in the students generosity of spirit and integrity of thought, word and action. I have always believed that to be educated means to have a deeper understanding of self and of the world. I envision every Ashokaite to be a contributor and an achiever at the global platform.

Mr. Ashok Katariya
Founder Chairman

Mr. Satish Parakh (Secretary)

We aim to create a global educational community of conscientious individuals who have developed their intellectual, artistic and professional talents to the highest degree, and who have an exalted sense of purpose in their lives, inspiring all around them to transcend barriers, overcome odds and work in unison to bring about positive change in society. Effective schools are founded on a strong foundation of children who thrive when they are challenged and are self-motivated to find solutions. We pride ourselves on our happy and nurturing environment which enables every student to achieve his/her very best.”

Mr. Satish Parakh
Secretary

Mr. Shrikant Shukla (Secretary)

In imparting education, we aim to guide the students through a system beyond pure academic achievement into development of the total personality. The focal point in this development process is the inculcation of attitudes that lead the child to unfold naturally into a well -balanced individual who will effectively meet the challenges of the world, as well as contribute responsibly to global growth. Each child is different, born with a unique set of natural abilities and thus strive to develop their individual cognitive skills by encouraging them in all respects. We aim to go all out to provide the best opportunities to our students to gain prowess in sports, performing and visual arts, oratory skills, art or other skills of their interest.

Mr. Shrikant Shukla
Joint Secretary

Mrs. Astha Kataria (Managing Trustee)

We are making a profound headway in pursuit of excellence in education and our students are shaping into accomplished adults who are embedded with international perspective. We foresee a colossal shift in the social and professional scenario that our students will face when they grow up, hence, we strive to focus upon equipping them with 21st century skills and making them ready to compete successfully in their future challenges. Our ever progressive approach of education is in force for empowered, self-motivated and agile achievers who contribute holistically within and beyond the school. We aim to become a community of lifelong learners, striving for excellence, and inspired by achievement and success

Mrs. Astha Kataria
Managing Trustee

Mission Statement

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQs

How does the school’s assessment system evaluate the skills of a student?

Assessments at our institutes are carried out to gauge the application potential, the retention and comprehension abilities of a student. The structured assessment and evaluation framework focuses not just on Assessment of Learning but also on “ASSESSMENT FOR LEARNING”.

These activities include

  • Quiz
  • Group activity
  • Presentations
  • Projects
  • Conversations
  • Visual Testing
  • Debates

Our continuous assessments help us evaluate the student’s development over a range of skills and also provide us the necessary feedback to hone their strengths and improve performance.

An in-house aptitude test mechanism is in place to test students for special programmes, such as ‘gifted education’ or ‘special education’. Aptitude tests are also carried out to gauge student’s proficiency and what learning methodology suits him best. We also partner with esteemed companies/institutes to provide us with Diagnostic Tests to evaluate students’ verbal reasoning, numerical ability, spatial ability, speed and accuracy.

The schools and the Junior College follow Trimester pattern of evaluation which caters to internal assessment and written evaluation.

Apart from academics, what opportunities do the students get for all-round development?

We firmly believe that along with helping the students develop a perception towards learning and reasoning, the child’s all-round personality development should be focused upon equally. Focus is also on building good behavioural skills and a healthy attitude towards life in their formative years, through values inculcated by sports and other extra-curricular activities.

The facilities and opportunities available at the students’ disposal are:

  • Hands on learning through STEM Lab and Science Lab.
  • Enhanced communication skill through the English Enhancement Lab
  • AUSAO: Ashoka Universal School's Astronomical observatory, first of its kind in Maharashtra
  • Career Counselling Service
  • A plethora of indoor & outdoor activities

Does the school have any mechanism to develop emotional and social skills? Do you have a student counsellor?

Education is incomplete without equipping students with the necessary devices of emotional and mental well-being and empathetic social skills. With this purview in mind, ‘Happiness Curriculum’, Value Education lessons, interview sessions with real life heroes, excursions and visits to support various social causes have been actively implemented as a part of the curriculum.

Our Emotional Literacy Program helps students understand and guide their emotions from a young age.

We have a dedicated Counselling Department that actively engages with students and parents to work on adjustment issues, child care, etc.
