Vidhya Peetham, a CBSE School is in Salem, Tamil Nadu. It is located in Mannarpalayam, a serene, picturesque place, just 8 km away from the New Bus Stand, is a home away from home for the 400 children studying there. The school’s kindergarten campus is in the heart of the town, at 2nd agraharam. Vidhya Peetham,  started in 1996, has concocted potent techniques like hybrid phonics, ladder reading, mathemagix etc, rolled out a massive e-learning program that deploys thousands of online e-sheets, e-books, e-lessons and almost paradoxically has been rooted in cultural orthodoxy that belie its technical and pedagogical prowess.

Features Unique to Vidhya Peetham

Concept Learning

Children learn math, grammar, science etc by understanding the underlying concept. This helps them learn more with less effort. Rote learning is confined to few areas like multiplication tables, spelling etc

Multi-sensorial E-Learning

Children do classwork and homework online from grade 1 to 8. In kindergarten only homework is posted online. The integrated, customized, e-learning program boasts of over 18,000 e-sheets, many embellished with colourful pictures, audio and video and helps children navigate the CBSE school curriculum with ease.

Intellectual Infrastructure

Though the school has a verdant 4 acre campus, spacious, ventilated classrooms, two lavish computer labs, a posh science lab and swanky toilets, it does not harp about its physical infrastructure. Because, all the steel and concrete in the world, will not make a kid smart. The school’s pride is in its intellectual infrastructure like Ladder Reading, Mathemagix etc., which kindle children’s intelligence.

Hybrid Phonics

Perhaps the easiest spelling program in the world, it helps children from LKG onwards spell effortlessly. By the time kids finish kindergarten they can spell 350 words. From grade 2 onwards, children spell challenging multi-syllable words using this technique.

Ladder Reading

This 4 year program, comprising of 10 levels, starts in LKG and finishes in grade 2. Each higher level has been calibrated to be more challenging than the previous one. By the time the program culminates, grade 2 children will be adept at reading newspapers and quite often even grade 10 books.

Monster Reader Program

A challenging reading-cum-comprehension program with a heady concoction of direct and twisted questions, in open test format. Starts from Grade 1.

Zinglish

Zinglish is English with a zing. Its components are reading comprehension, jiffy comprehension and multimedia comprehension. It imparts English fluency even to children whose parents don’t speak the language.

Signature Teaching Designs

Teaching programs unique to the school like Hybrid Phonics for spelling, Ladder Reading, Grammar Slammer, ‘Zing’lish, Mathemagix etc enable children to learn more with less effort.

Burden-free & Tuition-free

Thanks to concept learning & e-learning, children learn a huge amount of skills with deceptive ease. Tuition is not required for two reasons, one because it is superfluous and also because most tuition teachers are ill-equipped to handle the school’s challenging curriculum.

Yoga

Yoga is taught to children from grade 4. Daily children do yoga for thirty minutes at school, as a part of the curriculum.

Technology & Tradition

Children possess technology prowess (they use computers from when they are 31/2 years old) and are also entrenched in tradition. Even the attire (those expecting ties & belts will be sorely disappointed) and greeting (Namaskaram) are traditional!

Indian Cultural Ethos

Children learn Sanskrit shlokas, Thevaram, Bhagavad Gita etc from kindergarten. A typical Vidhya Peetham child has technology at the finger tips, English on the lips and Indian cultural ethos in the heart.
