KVA, The Name
Besides the mountain river, Kanger, The Kanger National Park was established way back in 1982. In tribals’ colloquial language the word Kanger also means pure water. The name “Kaanger Valley Academy” owes its origin to the famous Kaanger range of forests located in the Bastar region of Chhattisgarh, which is the second most dense virgin forest in the world.
KVA’s classrooms with fewer children having a high teacher-students ratio sets the stage in fine fettle to provide for a rich learning experience. Focused attention on individual needs blooms as a natural consequence in this small school setting. In our efforts towards humanising the subjects we teach the well researched concept plans do come handy for teachers. Through a multi-disciplinary approach the cohesiveness of classroom transactions is achieved which makes learning sustainable and futuristic for the students. IEC (Interactive enrichment classes) quotidian not only helps in clearing the subject-related doubts of some children but also takes the gifted ones to a higher level of competency in their intellectual pursuits.Areas of interest, potential, and growth are identified by the teacher mentors easily to build a robust comprehensive portfolio management system serving the interest of all concerned, the parents in particular. With this kind of personal touch, the depth and dimension of communication between parents and the school reach a new level of satisfaction. At a school with a petite body of students, each one enjoys the luxury of participation whether in group activities like hobbies, sports,projects for leadership development or meditation in the school’s pyramid for self-inquiry. The outreach programs such as field trips,exhibitions, community services account for the overall development of children what parents seek for their wards in schools. In such a blessed educational space teachers’ partnership with parents respecting each other’s emotional integrity becomes an ongoing commitment for life. It’s not just about schooling, but Education for life!!!

MR. ABIJIT DAS
The current Principal has spent 35years in academic teaching-learning and academic administration, at different levels. The varied experience of 21years of ICSE/ISC exposure and 14 years of CBSE working as a Teacher, House Master, Associate NCC Officer, Sports Incharge, Social Service Club Incharge, Mess Committee Member, Evaluator, and Master Trainer has added a unique dimension to his team building ability. Excellent communication skills, ability to strike a rapport with colleagues, students and parents, backed by a supportive & understanding nature, makes him very approachable. The benevolently strict disciplinarian in him makes him particular about the slips and slides along the schooling process which he expects everyone to avoid. The child-centric educator in him stands for students needs first and of course then the requirement of the rest. KVA wishes to gain from his vast experience and also looks forward to his leadership to deliver what this esteemed institution needs.
The Road Ahead
The purpose of school education is not merely to make students pass a few exams to earn a living but to help them succeed in leading a harmonious life. As a weak foundation cannot sustain the building for long, a meaningful life cannot be lived with inappropriate schooling at its base. Creating socially contributing, environmentally sensitive and globally responsible citizens is what we aspire for our children to be. This requires nurturing and preservation of the innate originality and primal innocence of every learner which unfortunately has been over clouded by compulsive ambitions of the contemporary policy makers in the field of education. Knowledge is useful but without the right attitude towards its application it becomes destructive in several ways, and modern times bear its testimony. Accumulation of information cannot be the be all and end all of students’ lives. Promoting ability to empathize with regard to one’s understanding of relationships with men and material both remains the cornerstone of KVA’s curriculum. Teachers and students alike, endeavour consistently to create such experience for each other in a mutually beneficial learning platform through ever-evolving indigenous concept plans and portfolio management. Our aim is not to churn out mechanical conformists but life-ready individuals who would be fearless enough to question the status quo and change it for the greater good.
