Late N.C. JAIN
“The purpose of education must coincide with the larger life purpose of those being educated.” This firmly held belief is what drove the founding father of The Heritage group of schools, Shri N.C. Jain, to enter the field of education almost 30 years ago. The Heritage School, Vasant Kunj, the first school from the group was set up in 1994 under his guidance and direction. His philosophy, passion and belief have been the guide for countless people to find their own truth in their lives. A true visionary, he inspired the next level of changes in the education ecosystem. Known for his immense work in philanthropy, he contributed to multiple social causes, with a focus on education and healthcare for the underprivileged.
Heritage Xperiential Learning School (HXLS), with its commitment to an experiential project-based pedagogy and integrated curriculum, has established a formidable reputation for itself as a progressive, innovative school in just over a decade that it has been operational.
It stands apart as perhaps the only example of a progressive school that offers alternate education in the mainstream, disproving the perception that experiential education can only take place on a small scale. HXLS has regularly found representation in the top 10 schools of the country as much for its academic reputation and infrastructure, as for its focus on students with special needs or those from economically weaker sections. Other areas where the school has been cited for excellence include: co-curricular activity, leadership and management, sports education, life skills education and conflict resolution, and parent involvement. The school has always invested heavily in its teachers’ professional learning and development and, today, many of its teachers are trainers and facilitators who are making other schools aware of its experiential learning methodology.
Quite apart from all this, the school offers the best value for money. With a fee structure similar to other day schools in the NCR, Heritage Xperiential Learning School stands out in terms of the quality it offers, not merely in terms of infrastructure but, most importantly, through the quality of teaching and learning. It has the best teacher-student ratio at 1:9 in the NCR. Its fully air-conditioned campus is spread across a sprawling 11.3 acres and is equipped with one of the best infrastructures among schools in the NCR. Its leadership team consists of three alumni from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, an alumnus of the Harvard Business School as well experienced educators from around the world.
