A mere academic excellence is not only one parameter of an effective school climate. Unless human excellence is nursed and nurtured, the schools would be failing to achieve the major objectives of the educational process. Vivekanand Public School (VPS) is not just a school but an institution where children are taught in an unmatched academic environment. The school aims at making “harmonious personality” by all round development of the students. To make the school climate effective, each and every aspect of a child is taken care of. The school provides facilities not only for intellectual growth but physical growth also. With a view to ensure comprehensive growth to mind and body, CBSE has initiated paradigm change in evaluation system by including a well defined process to cover physical education, games and sports. Accordingly the school has regular activities round the year and students are accessed and adjudged on the pattern adopted by CBSE in CCE scheme.

There is also extensive use of technology. The computers and the internet are used for teaching, self learning, interactive mental maths quizzes and speed calculation competitions. The geometer sketch pad and the handheld calculators are used to explain concepts from coordinate geometry to calculus, to learn and understand quadratic equations; conic sections and trigonometric curves etc.
