Right to Education
The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act is important for the future of India. We must nurture our children with the right education to secure India’s future as a strong and prosperous country. The RiversideSchool has embraced the spirit of the Right to Education Act and opened its heart, mind and campus to 13 children (25% of the intake) starting from the 2011-12 academic year.
This is an ‘inclusive’ programme for the children from a less privileged background, NOT an after school or remedial programme. We believe that this step towards inclusiveness will add to the school’s diversity and increase holistic learning for all – children from more fortunate backgrounds, teachers – everyone!
In addition to the regular Riverside curriculum, students are supported with Home Visits(twice a year), 1-on-1 interactions(twice a week) and a Summer Program(thrice a week).
Furthermore, for students to get maximum support from the home front, Riverside offers tutorship in English and Computers for parents. It is also a fantastic opportunity for parents to hone their skills and enhance their knowledge. Sessions are held three times a week on the Riverside campus.
