Our Approach

The 4Q approach to holistic learning

According to mainstream psychology, IQ contributes only about 20 percent to the parameters that determine an individual’s effectiveness and success, which leaves 80 % to the other factors. However, our conventional education system puts a disproportionate focus on IQ largely ignoring the other important dimensions of human well-being.

At BWIS, we lay emphasis on all the 4Qs (PQ, IQ, EQ and SQ) of development to better prepare our children and to equip them to face the world, beyond facing tests and exams.

Preparing the gen-next learners for the industrial entrepreneurial world.

Leaders become great, not because of their power, but because of their ability to empower others. As resources become scarce in a planet whose population is expanding, smarter and more efficient solutions are needed at all levels.

We aspire to create leaders in every sphere of the society who can positively contribute towards solving the challenges of the world and to inspire more ‘job creators’ than just ‘job seekers’.

The C’s that matter the most!

Curiosity, Compassion, Character, Competence and Culture. These values form the bedrock of the journey of learning for all the students at BWIS.

Timeless education for the new world!

The more things change, the more we need to embrace things that never change. BWIS intends to provide a transformative learning experience rooted in foundational Indian values and universal ethics, which can truly address the needs of today’s generation of children. We aspire to identify and nurture various naturally existing talents and inclinations in a student and facilitate in developing them. 

On the academic front, the proposed curriculum is Cambridge which is global, challenging and at the same time flexible.

“Hello, we are the parents of Rithika Stagi of class 4 A . Way of teaching methodology is very impressive. The life sublime program is good. So far online classes are happening & I am so happy as the number of students is less & teachers are giving attention for each & every child. Child is missing the physical classes, but teachers are so nicely managing them with activities. Infrastructure wise the building structure is very innovative & its attractive, kid-friendly. This school is going to be a buzzing school within a few years. Teachers are excellent in cocurricular activities & my child is learning a lot. I would recommend the school to all the parents & will give a five star. “

But they have adjusted & they have learned a lot. Here in the school everything is involved for child development, there are many club activities which are awesome. Kids are becoming interactive, they are learning how to interact. Life sublime classes are very nice. they are reciting the Shlokas, they are understanding many things from stories. Bhagavad gita contains many Sholaks , they are learning & telling me, which is amazing . Teachers are very much interactive – focusing on each kid’s development. They are calling each kid’s name in the class to make them attentive. “

The environment provided is really enriching, children are really getting benefited with this. Teachers are very open minded & loving. I am so happy as social communication skills have gone up in my children, Thank you so much BWIS team. “

“Since the beginning we were looking for IGCSE school. My son was in the US & was in IGCSE school. We definitely have trust & confidence in The brand of ISKCON . And it is the first time we have come across ISKCON’s school. We were very confident & the process of admission was very smooth. Teachers are very cooperative. They are focussing on each & every child’s development & taking special classes also to boost them. Life sublime is really remarkable. Kids are engaged in different activities. We Definity recommend parents to visit the school. Faculty is well informed. Kids who are lagging, they are focusing on them, which is not found in any other school. As the school is ISKCON’s school, lots of value-based education is happening here, which I could not find in other schools. Being an Indian we should know our value & tradition. Both IGCSE – truly international approach & on other hand ISKCON’s values are making my child’s future very bright. I am very satisfied .”
