Background & History
Born in a family (headed by Doon Ratna Chaudhary Satyendra Singh, a great veteran freedom fighter and social worker) where Values, Principles and Good ‘Sanskars’ mean the most, Mr. Shaleen Singh, the Founder President of Sanskar International School™, believes that India’s past and great history has, time and again, taught and proved to the world, the importance of its Rich Culture and Heritage.
He believes that for ages, the great men and women of India have proved worthy of its Cultural Values and created history by their unmatched acts and gestures of love for all living beings; respect and regards for their Gurus’, elders and superiors; sacrifice of precious possessions, beloved ones and even life for the benefit of humanity; compassion, service and ‘Sewa’ towards the weak, the poor & the needy and many such acts that became exemplary lessons for the World, bringing about great reforms and transformation in people of India and other nations.
The only thought that bothers him the most is that the cultural and human values, which a true human being could be proud of, are deteriorating in today’s world when science, technology and development are at their highest pace, advanced education and hi-tech research is producing brains of extra-ordinary intellect. He feels that the youth of today must realize that knowledge and talent without good human values and good ‘sanskars’ could be most dangerous and disastrous!!
Ancient times enjoyed value based environment in Royal Court, ‘Ashrams’ and ‘Gurukuls’, where legendary warriors, philosophers and great learned personalities got true education, away from homely and palatial comforts. Similarly, the Founders, Mr. Shaleen Singh and Ms. Anita Singh have made a very successful attempt by a fine-blend of modern education with Indian culture to give healthy and controlled surroundings, having moral atmosphere for the children to breathe in.
Sanskar International School™ has begun this Reformative Movement with the support and blessings of its Patron Chaudhary Satyendra Singh to set the right tone for International Standard Education with an Indian Touch.
The Founders are very confident that this school will grow from strength to strength each day and constantly achieve its goals of producing confident, cultured and Good World-Citizens with healthy, intelligent, spiritually awakened and positive thinking minds.
To accomplish this difficult task they have with them a dedicated team of staff, experts and a panel of highly qualified and experienced advisers of International stature.
