Two years ago, my son Agastya had to leave his old school because he missed managing an entry into the science stream of high school. Though he was passionate about Physics, something had made him give up trying.
When we stepped into The Samhita Academy, the first encounter with the Principal and Vice-Principal filled me with immense respect for the school, giving me confidence that my child would be in great hands.
In the past two years, I have witnessed Agastya bloom like never before, displaying confidence in his abilities which we had not seen earlier. Not just academics, but he revived his love for music just after school gave him opportunities to perform.
This year he left school to join Manipal Institute of Technology to pursue a B.Tech in Computers and Communication, something he aspired for passionately. He also secured 3rd rank in the school, topping in Maths, Physics and Chemistry.
The education, they say, is not filling up of a pail but the lighting of a soul. I have the utmost respect for the institution and its teachers, which ignites the young mind.
