About us

Unlocking every child's learning potential

Why Vishwajyot ?

Vishwajyot High School was born out of a passion to reform education in India, in the year 2004. At Vishwajyot, our mission is to unlock every person's learning potential by helping them discover about themselves and around the world.

Learning is all about actively seeking answers and solutions rather than just focusing on what’s been said or read. At Vishwajyot, we believe that this trait is critical in creating leaders of tomorrow - individuals who are equipped to deal with the problems of the next generation rather than the past one.

Our pedagogies are based on the theories of global experts such as Dr. Rudolf Steiner (founder of Constructivism) and Dr. Howard Gardner (Harvard School of Education).
