Khaitan Public School holds position in top 10 schools in Ghaziabad as an institution where innovation is key and the student always comes first. It is our honest endeavor, as an institution, to equip our students for global citizenship. The world is becoming smaller and more connected each day. A person living in a remote village is as much a global citizen as someone from a metropolitan city. We have always aimed at helping our students develop a global perspective by giving them exposure and enabling them to think about the changes they can bring about. That positions us in the list of top schools in Ghaziabad with a strong focus on overall growth of our students.
Education is not merely academics, but an experience of sorts. I believe in the journey, not the destination alone. KPS believes in a much larger definition of success wherein the process is enjoyable and treated with sanctity, not merely as a chore that needs to be forcefully completed.
Aristotle rightfully claimed, “We are what we repeatedly do, excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”. My vision is to make every person associated with KPS acquire the habit of learning. I strongly believe that if we can inculcate the joy of learning in our students, we will have achieved our goal and fulfilled our mission.
