At present the school has classes from Toddlers to Class XII. Elaborate lab facilities with separate rooms for Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, Geography & Entrepreneurship are housed in spacious rooms.
School is the learning center, teachers are the facilitators, they facilitate the children to learn. Children, especially the young kids respond to elementary shapes clubbed with vibrant colours.
Our concept for the school interiors emerges from the five basic elements or the Panchamahabhutas –
- Akash (Space)
- Vayu (Air)
- Jal (Water)
- Prithvi (Earth)
- Agni (Fire)
and further we have incorporated educational elements in different rooms Universally, the five elements are mixed in an infinite variety of relative proportions such that each output is distinctly unique. Although each element has a range of attributes, they maintain their presence felt at all times. Constantly changing and interacting with each other, they create a situation of dynamic flux that keeps the world going.
These elements reflect in every aspect of our life and the same are depicted through pictorial representation on the school floors. The lobby area is exclusively demarcated into five distinct zones, each zone representing these five elements. The distinct character of every element would catch attention of the child entering the school on a daily basis and the deep rooted philosophy behind these five elements would be subtly absorbed by the youngsters. This specially themed flooring would stimulate the child’s intrinsic brain and help develop a learning curve towards nature in general.
Every class room is equipped with an interactive Board with multimedia projector, Pin-up Board, Green Board, White Board etc.
IVWS has an exceptional Computer Lab with a 1:1 student computer ratio and all-in-one machines.Computer Labs are designed as per the age group so that the children are tech-savvy from the earliest age. It is rightly said that a single picture speaks a thousand words. Thus to make understanding an easy process through multimedia each Lab is equipped with adequate multimedia facilities.
The students have a ready access to a well stocked library to empower their minds and to think beyond their prescribed texts.
The initiation of a digital library is yet another novel move towards facilitating education for gen-Next. Apart from books and journals, visual, audio and video materials will also be made available to the learners. In keeping with the rapid expansion of educational multimedia, the school has endeavoured to create this e-library. Virtual learning materials have now been found to augment learner comprehensibility. Digital library has a great deal of potential for the academic sector and we are certain that this will motivate learning.
