Founded in the year 2007, the school unfurled its first feathers under the enabling guidance of Mr. Harinder S. Juneja and Mrs. Rajni S. Juneja. Both are highly qualified, well-travelled, and have over 20 years of experience in education, counselling and skill development. This, complemented with their ardent passion to educate the new-age children through most contemporary methods, has resulted in them having been successful in creating a salubrious place for children to dwell in and to prepare their minds and bodies for a blossoming life ahead. They believe that a school is meant to be a place where the students learn about totality, the wholeness of life.
"Academic excellence is absolutely necessary, but a school includes more than that. It should be a place where both the teacher and the student explore, not only the world of knowledge but also their thinking, their own behaviour."
"When going to school becomes pleasurable for children, ‘learning’ is not conceived as an effort; it rather flows."
It is important that the school reinforces and builds on this positive attitude by offering varied stimulating and enjoyable experiences. Mr. & Mrs. Juneja chose to introduce the very powerful, well-researched and meticulously developed Maple Bear TM curriculum from Canada to the parents and children of Dehradun. Through this internationally successful Pre-School program, which is designed to educate the child in a wholesome manner, using integration of subjects, they provided a rich and stimulating environment in the school which encouraged creativity, imagination and self-expression. Their constant whole-hearted effort is to not only make children better individuals, rather responsible global citizens. With their visionary fervour, diligent and determined efforts, and administrative acumen and with their inclination towards building lives, Mr. and Mrs. Juneja have palpably created a second home for the young.
Mr. & Mrs. Juneja are not the ones to rest on their laurels. Excited with the wonderful response that they received with Maple Bear TM, they soon started with the elementary grades from Class I – VIII with 'Adroit Progressive School'. The school uses progressive methods of education with emphasis on learning by doing, hands-on-projects, and experiential learning. Integrated curriculum focussed on thematic units are the basis of this kind of education. They aimed for the students not only to become academically smart, but also strong in concepts, with better communication skills and awareness of the importance of health and environment. The school introduced many activities which encouraged students to critically think and become problem solvers.
With the clear thought in their mind that ‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’ the progress of the schools under the promoters goes on.
