History

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”

In 2001, Shevantabai & Shankarrao Trust was formed. For the trust, the aim was to develop a school that can be run as a laboratory for testing the best teaching practices and modifying them suitably for enhancing their relevance to given situation. With their noble intentions in place they then founded Vishwajyot High School in June 2004. With more than 12-year-old legacy, and over five batches of students passing out of 10th grade, Vishwajyot has proved that through its unique pedagogy and methodology, excellent results (100% first class) can be achieved. Students at Vishwajyot High school are testimony to that fact that a school can develop children’s minds, bodies and hearts, to create the leaders of the future.

Philosophy

Vishwajyot High School, Kharghar is a school with a difference. We believe in the philosophy of constructivism and we actually practice it. We practice - Learning by doing, learning by discovery and learning by understanding. The school is inspired by Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligence theory - Linguistic, Logical-Mathematical, Spatial, Bodily Kinesthetic, Musical, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, Naturalist. 

In our school, we emphasize on – 

  • Learning by doing - experiential learning, 
  • Learning by understanding- Meaning is personal and unique and students understanding is based on unique experiences. 
  • Learning by discovery- Purpose of learning is to construct meaning and arrive at conclusions, not just memorize the right answer.
