Education is not just acquiring some degrees in life. There is a wider aspect of it. One’s character is built by education and the base of education is built in a school. A major role is played by education received in schools in our future life. The education that we receive in schools plays a major role in our future life. Normally, people view schools as places of student learning but they have now begun to think of schools as learning places for teachers, parents, school support officers and members of the wider community. Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) are the two major boards of school education in India. Among the CBSE schools in Kolkata, Bodhi Bhavans is a well-known name.

Nowadays, a person’s social status and respect depend on his or her educational qualification. If you are well-educated, you will get employed in a good position and be able to earn well.

They not only teach them the subjects but teach them how to become ideal human beings.

We also coordinate with the parents and ask their opinion about our teaching methodologies.
