Rajarshi Gurukul is dedicated to providing students with an ideal learning environment, where they explore their individual potential and develop their unique talents.Rajarshi Gurukul has carefully enhanced the national curriculum designed by the Curriculum Development Center, as provided by the District Education Board of Nepal and IPC (International Primary Curriculum), London. We have adapted this curriculum to balance theoretical and practical knowledge in a way that optimizes each student’s aptitude and learning style. We follow a progressive learning style which is child-centered and highly personalized, where each child actively participates in their own learning. Instead of striving only for academic excellence, we aspire to educate and develop the whole child by considering the future skills the child will need in society. We believe in experiential learning which employs hands-on activities in the learning process.
Rajarshi Gurukul is a progressive independent school for children ages four to Eighteen. RG was founded by Mr. Rajesh Chaudhary who envisioned an engaged and socially responsible community of active learners. RG School has small class sizes and staff dedicated to supporting children as they become confident in their abilities to explore, learn, demonstrate compassion, and be inspired. Our students are directly engaged with the world, from growing plants in their community garden to connecting with people who work and live in Nepal. We provided open-ended materials and experiences and emphasize inquiry in the classroom. We understand that realistically it is a challenge to operate an independent school with low tuition rates, but are committed to working toward our goal of having RG School be a viable option for members of our community without tuition being a barrier.
Our History: The idea of Rajarshi Gurukul began with the promoters, founders and friends who were looking for a progressive school with small class sizes, International Standard of Education in Nepal. As the notion to create a new school took hold the planners wanted to ensure that the school is of International Standard. In the fall of 2013, the first class of twenty two students started with Grade I to V students started learning together in Rajarshi Gurukul. RG School is located in a beautiful and spacious building at Bhaktapur, Nepal.
Our teachers, hand-picked from among the best and brightest teachers that Nepal has to offer, have a deep understanding of academics, child psychology and cognitive, social, and emotional development. They act as guides rather than dictators, allowing the children to become independent, creative and perceptive thinkers and preparing them to step out and face the challenges of the world.
The vision of Rajarshi Gurukul is to create an encouraging environment where children will be able to recognize and achieve their fullest potential. At RG, children are valued as individuals with unique talents to contribute to the school, community, and eventually, society at large. Children who are guided to think with creativity and innovation will view life as a challenge in excellence: they will constantly examine their surroundings for opportunities to make an impact. They will have inquiring and ingenious minds impassioned by research and problem solving. A positive atmosphere of discipline, respect and tolerance nurtures the socialization skills needed in society for harmony and development.
As proponents of a child-centered education, we do not believe in dictating to our students nor encouraging rote learning and regurgitation. Our teachers, from among the best and brightest teachers that Nepal has to offer, act more as guides along the path of education. We believe in a personal education and accordingly, our class sizes are very small, with only 26 students in a class. Thus, our teachers are able to provide students with the proper time and encouragement they need, especially in younger grades when guidance is most important. The healthy student teacher ratio also means that students have more opportunities for personal interactions with the teachers to develop their inter-personal and communication skills.
