To create educational systems of ‘useful-individualised’ learning and direction that stimulate the passion and brilliance in every child.
To accomplish our mission we shall reconnect our perception of the world by a fundamental shift in human consciousness. We inspire students to think, connect and share – using tools, technology and curricula of literacy to help them dissolve boundaries, fulfil their potential and create a better society.
We build non-competitive, multi-age learning spaces of individualized direction and pacing, areas that remove limitations based on age, subject, complexity and time-frame expectations.

While at Greater Valley School, we make sure that our children have state-of-art IT infrastructure, outstanding sports facilities, advances laboratories and well equipped libraries. We focus on teaching them that it is thinking and participating that matter. Education at Greater Valley School is education for a lifetime.
The school will be affiliated to the CBSE Board in Classes 10 and 12. In the junior classes, the school draws from the NCERT’s National Curriculum Framework and enriches and expands it to use a creative interdisciplinary approach.
The school offers specialized facilities both to those who wish to participate at a competitive level and those who play for fitness and health. For the Nursery students, there is a separate play area, sandpits and cycling space where they learn floor exercises, balancing beams and climbing frames.
Sports facilities for senior classes include a gym, tennis courts with astro-turf, a squash court, a field for soccer and cricket, basketball courts, and a climbing wall and a small skate park.
There is a special provision for creating an outstanding tennis academy and training for national level cricket.
Assessment is carefully used to strengthen learning and to prepare students for the needs of the outside world. A process of continuous assessment is followed. This means that varied learning activities are assessed - oral exercise, projects, student portfolios, class presentation, practical laboratory work, mathematical investigations and artistic performances.
We are the change you would like to see in a classroom. A classroom where the teacher is a part of the learning process as much as the young students.
A special sacred space in a child’s life that does not shield a child form reality, that does not educate for obsolescence, that is not based on fear, that does not induce alienation, that does not punish creativity and independence.
Instead, a sublimation of thoughts and deeds occur leading towards perfection in education. You are the change that we would like to see in a relationship between the home and the school. A synergy that will transform India into a knowledge society with responsible parenting, cutting edge teachers and outstanding scholars.
So, if we become the change that disperses light in the service of mankind – of ‘Manava Seva’, or life beyond self, then the Greater Valley School’s ideals will aptly symbolize a new progressive wave that the nation will ride on.
THE FINAL WORD
It is our endeavour that every student who graduates from the Greater Valley School, has with him passion, an exceptional track record and a demonstrated gift, talent or a nurtured skill.
To this commitment, we will pursue guidance and placement until our student is in college, career, industry or activity of choice.
The Greater Valley School is designed by Learn Today, the promoters of the Vasant Valley School and the B.A.G. Films Education Society. It is located at a sprawling 6 1/2 acre campus opposite the Knowledge Parks at Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh.
