Mallya Aditi International School, which was founded in 1984 by Anne Warrior, Geetha Narayanan, and a pioneering group of committed teachers and parents, remains true to its values and to the continuous development of its core competence: teaching and learning.

The school strives to create a learning environment that is child-centred, international in perspective, engaging, active and critical. Its ways of working are democratic and decentralized. The school celebrates student and teacher-led initiatives and values creativity, excellence and a social conscience. Aditi graduates attend some of the best colleges and universities in India and around the world.

Aditi recognises that each student learns differently and that these differences must be acknowledged and supported. The school’s Counselling Team  and Learning Support Laboratory have proven expertise in addressing these differences.  Members of the school’s outstanding Counselling Team routinely conduct research and present papers at national and international conferences.

Aditi believes that developing a sense of community and a social conscience lie at  the very heart of education. Students of the school have also recently become involved with the Spastics Society of Karnataka as partners. Other community involvements have included the HelpAge India, Samiksha and CRY.

Another of the school’s enduring commitments is to the creative and performing arts. We believe that art, music and drama are not extra-curricular at all but an entitlement of all students and, profoundly related to learning. The school’s innovative Creative Arts Department has produced critically acclaimed plays, musicals and concerts. More importantly, this incredibly talented department has led several initiatives to integrate the creative arts into several other parts of the curriculum. The result has been the creation of riveting learning experiences that have proved invaluable for students.

Aditi has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to the liberal arts and humanities. Thanks to excellent faculty, subjects like Economics, Sociology, History, Geography, Literature and Political Science have always enjoyed a high status in the school. The commitment of teachers in these subjects is to develop a sense of critical enquiry in students. Questioning conventional wisdom is common in Aditi classrooms. The school is equally committed to excellence in sciences and mathematics. Biology students have participated in tiger-censuses; turtle walks and extended research projects on local eco-systems. Mathematics is augmented by exciting extra-mural lectures by practising mathematicians.

Teachers are the school’s most valuable resource. Aditi’s emphasis on the professional development of its faculty is legendary. A dedicated Professional Development Centre creates opportunities for continuous professional development. The school offers teachers opportunities to update their skills in institutions in India and abroad.

Never resting on its laurels, Aditi strives constantly to be a community of learning.
