J M International School, an unconventional and innovative school was founded on 26th November 2004 with the blessings of great philanthropist Shri Jhori Mal Ji, on the premise that every child is special in his own way and has a special ability to learn. The learning program in a good school must ultimately result in a happy and successful life for each child who must grow up to be a confident, responsible, and sensitive individual with a mind of his own and with the courage to speak her/his mind and the open-mindedness to accept the reviews of others.
With the vision and progressive outlook of our school Chairman Mr. R B Gupta and the dynamic Director Mr. Yogesh Gupta, today J M International School stands tall on its quality education with state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities. JMIS has an innovative culture of its own and it is on its way to becoming the finest learning hub for children for the pursuit of excellence not only in academics but in all walks of life.
The curriculum at JMIS is guided by the principles of child-centered experiential learning and holistic education and also learns from progressive international practices in school education. Our curriculum designing is inspired by the works of. . . Sri Aurobindo, the mother, Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Swami Vivekananda, Howard Gardner, Maria Montessori. . . and our own experiences as teachers and school leaders.
JMIS has evolved from the collective conviction of the Core Team of Educationists, about children, their learning experiences, and by constant progress, discovery and self-exploration. The respective Core Team members have been involved with complementary aspects of innovative school education for all these years.
We believe that there is much more to education than merely teaching a syllabus and preparing children for examinations. It is in fact not only the preparation for life but it is the life itself.
True education begins with knowing and understanding the child and letting her/him train the head, heart, and hand by the virtue of experiencing the multidimensional perspective of a holistic and child-centered curriculum, which is not only dynamic but also ever-evolving. At JMIS, the child and the educator are both life-long learners. Together, they weave a world of sharing, discovering, and constructing new hopes and new vistas.
"The teacher should not be a book that is read aloud, the same for everyone, no matter what his (the student's) nature and character. The first duty of the teacher is to help the student to know himself and to discover what he is capable of doing. For that, he must observe his games, the activities to which he is drawn naturally and spontaneously, and also what he liked to learn, whether his intelligence is awake, the stories he enjoys, the activities which interest him, the human achievements which attract him… The old method of the seated class to which the teacher gives the same lesson for all, is certainly economical and easy, but also very ineffective and so time is wasted for everybody.
