Education plays a fundamental role in the making of a man and his development as a culturally well developed social animal. To fulfil these objectives, there is a prime need of striking a balance between syllabus, curriculum, books and also Co-Curricular activities beyond that.
At Sharda Mandir High School Co-Curricular activities like Science exhibition, Olympaid Exams(English, Maths, Science, Informatics, General knowledge, Social Studies), Dr.Homibhabha Balvaidnyanik Competition, NFLAT exam, Drawing Grade Exam, Interschool competitions, field trips gives the students an opportunity to develop particular skills and exhibit their non-academic abilities. Co-Curricular activities actually complement the curricular activities and groom the students in the “Art of living and working together”.
A Chinese proverb very aptly states, “Teach me I will forget. Show me, and I might remember. Involve me, and I will never forget”

Value Based Education
The S. M. High School truly believes that to create responsible citizens of tomorrow it is very important for our children to be deeply rooted in our value systems and our rich culture. To ensure continuous reinforcement of our values, “Value based education” will be imparted to all our students from as early as the pre-primary classes. Regular monthly seminars on social and cultural topics will be organized by the school to impart value education to both children and their parents.
Regular and Effective PTA Meetings
The S. M. High School will dedicatedly follow the organization of regular PTA meetings with allowing an active participation of parents. Open and transparent feedback will be taken in regular intervals for continuous betterment of school operations.
At S. M. High School, we believe in not limiting a child to the classroom but exposing him/her to the prevalent worldwide educational scenario by conducting many competitive examinations which when concurrently run with internal school and classroom assignments test a child’s learning in a world context. It is a great way to introduce conceptual (alternative, lateral) thinking that is lacking in the current curriculum and the teaching methods. Some of the Exams encouraged by school: • Asset • Olympiad (Science, English, Mathematics and Computer) • NTSE (National Talent Search Examination) • IAIS (International Assessment for Indian Schools) • NSTSE (National Talent Science Exam by Unified Council)
