St.Joseph's High School

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”
– William Arthur Ward

Well Qualified and trained Teachers

Teachers are the pulse of any school, the indispensable factor to make education happen and crucial to any educational reform. The teacher’s purpose is not to create students in his own image, but to develop students who can create their own image. They are the sculptors of the child’s future, and hence any compromise on teacher quality can be seen as a compromise on the child’s destiny. Education must become an effective instrument of social change, and therefore the teacher has to be an agent of this transformation. This is, in a nutshell the impact that teachers have on the macro system.
The teacher, like each student is the showcase of the school; whatever values are seen in the teacher would be intercepted as those propagated by the school. Faculty is selected on the basis of enthusiasm and self-motivation level to undergo personal/ professional development. Staff is motivated to take up courses in professional/ leadership training. The well-qualified staff constantly undergo professional development through knowledge, skills and a attitude based programmes. In—Service Teacher Training programmes and seminars are regularly conducted for professional upgradation.
The School, through its teachers provides excellence across a wide range of academic disciplines with its outstanding teaching and research assessments leading to zero dropout rate and overall student satisfaction. The teachers maintain high standards by our long established internal training & quality assurance mechanisms.

Teacher’s resource Centre (TRC)

Another exclusive feature of our school is the Teachers’ Resource Centre (TRC). It provides resources such as Internet facility, reference books, educational CD’s, cassettes etc for teachers. The Teacher Resource Centre also conducts workshops and seminars for teachers’ professional growth.
The TRC is open to other educational institutions and individuals who would like to avail of our resources. Apart from the quality educational reference material available in the TRC, it also serves as a platform for various participatory fora, such as teacher development meetings etc.

Looking Beyond The Ordinary…..

As we move forward in the 21 century, in a world of unpredictable change, the survival of society will depend on the depth and breadth of children’s ability to learn, unlearn and relearn. In a shrinking world, they will need to know more than we know and possess more sophisticated skills than we possess. To this end schools must build their capacity to become learning communities.
As Mahatma Gandhi aptly put it –
“The real difficulty is that people have no idea of what education truly is. We assess the value of education in the same manner as we assess the value of land or of shares in the stock exchange market. We want to provide only such education as would enable the student to earn more. We hardly give any thought to the improvement of the character of the educated. Education must be of a new type for the sake of the creation of a new world.”

Educare Development Trust (EDT), through its schools, is committed to improving the quality of the educational process by developing a more rigorous theoretical understanding of this process and of the social, political and cultural contexts in which it occurs. To this end, it conducts teaching and research which are informed by the values of rational inquiry, intellectual independence and respect for evidence and which will foster critical and informed engagement with educational theory, policy and practice.
Dombivli is home to lakhs of people from all walks of life. The area is well planned and the footfalls have been increasing to alarming extents. Such large populace needs, among other things, mass transit systems, water and other civic facilities. But, perhaps the most important and emotionally driven need is the need for good schools where our children can learn to think and grow. Given these facts there is definitely a need and urgent demand for good schools; Schools with the purpose of imparting high quality education at reasonable prices.
“Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not.”
–George Bernard Shaw
Education Tenets
1. Every child is potentially an independent thinker, with an infinite capacity to acquire knowledge.
2. Child-centered education is the achievement of learning outcomes, wherein the pace and content of learning is directed by the child and supported by the facilitator (teacher).
3. Given the space, children are capable of constructing activities that would lead to effective learning outcomes.
4. To see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child. EDT’S Philosophy
We, at the EDT’s Community Resource Centre would like to:
See a society that is liberal, progressive, healthy and educated, believes in the principles of Equality and humanitarianism, with citizens who are devoted, happy and honest ; Develop proactive, reflective and confident individuals who are capable of creating, contributing and growing through enhanced participation, mutual co-operation and sharing and in turn upholding trust and empathy, dynamism and genuineness to sustain the process of learning and living!!
Present market research shows that many schools in this area do not have their systems and policies in place. Moreover many schools in the area seem to be run with a philosophy of imparting literacy and hardly any school is focusing on all round holistic educative models for children which prove most significant for the development of live thinking minds. Schools based on EDT’s philosophy and teaching methodologies are strongly advocated and appreciated. The market today needs such a school with the right balance of the body, mind and the soul.. .and EDT being firmly grounded in the field of education, has all the resources for such an institution.
