Philosophy & Core Values

Through more than a century's experience and changing times, JB has remained steadfast in its mission: to encourage students to continually strive for excellence by providing an educational experience that is challenging yet supportive, broad but well-informed, contemporary yet rooted in our rich Indian culture.

Education, at J B Petit, is regarded as a process of liberation, bringing forth from within abilities which the child already possesses, and helping her to express these freely, and at her own pace. Recognizing that childhood is a journey, not a race, students learn in an environment that is nurturing, and acquire an education in the true sense of the word. Ignoring the rat race of ranks and marks, the school instills values of co-operation and team spirit, deeply rooted in the idea of ubuntu - I succeed, if we succeed.
