CBSE School in SalemVidhya Peetham i-School
A haven that offers meaningful, burden-free education moored in concept learning, emotional intelligence with a plethora of curricular & co-curricular activities, preparing children for higher education and life.
About the school
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. E-learning is an important tool in our quest to be the best CBSE school in Salem.
Though this CBSE 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.
Signature Teaching Techniques
Tradition & Technology
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.
Invaluable Resource For Parents
