Message from the School Director
Choosing a school that is most appropriate to the individual needs of a child, is a major decision for parents. Many questions arise but the most important is whether the school’s educational and social philosophy meets the parent’s own expectations and standards.
Excelsior American School’s philosophy is based on the principle that each child will achieve their personal best in all areas of their development! Children are like flowers, they blossom when nourished with love and care. At Excelsior American School, we believe that each child has qualities that will help the child to become like a sweet smelling flower so that he/she can add value to environment around them.
At Excelsior, education involves the development of self inspired children. It is important for all children to acquire skills that will help them survive and grow in the society. It is also equally important for them to help the society grow along with their individual growth. And that is why we encourage our students to be intellectually curious and morally strong.
Excelsior being an international school with students from diverse cultures, our students learn sensitivity and respect for different religions, traditions, languages. Students get a unique opportunity to truly engage with and learn from others who may be different in myriad ways, including national origin, socioeconomic class, race, ethnicity, or disability status. Our students work independently as well as cooperatively, learning to respect the needs of others as well as their own. All this takes place in a multicultural environment that embraces diversity and teaches children to celebrate their cultural heritage as well as of others!
As they are gently nudged to grow into responsible and compassionate global citizens, the school emphasises on every student being honest, fair and ethical. Their confidence in their own convictions will give them to courage to stand up for what is correct as they face the tough challenges of today’s competitive world.
A child’s school should be an extension of their family, providing a safe environment in which they can explore ideas and feelings. Excelsior is a closely knit family that allows it’s members to bond and care for each other.
I wish all members of the Excelsior Community a very constructive and a happy year ahead!
Message from the Admission Director
Selecting the right school for your child can be a daunting task for parents today, especially, when there are a plethora of options available for them. The most important factors that parents look for in a school are quality of education, extra-curricular activities, well-trained faculty, sound infrastructure, safety and security and a warm and caring environment.
At Excelsior American School each student thrives in a nurturing environment that creates a balance between social and emotional well being besides academic success. They have the confidence to solve problems, collaboration skills to work with others and the resilience to stay on task when things fall apart.
As Mahatma Gandhi said, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”. Excelsior promotes a motto of ‘Self Inspired Learning’ that helps the child to become a life-long learner. Our trained faculty encourages children to put in the effort to learn and be capable of doing things in a confident manner. The low student-teacher ratio supports individual attention for each student.
Excelsior provides a multicultural environment with students from diverse cultures that help them learn sensitivity and respect for different religions, traditions and languages. We value each student as an individual and ensure that each child reaches his or her full potential not only intellectually but also emotionally.
At Excelsior, we maintain the right balance between academics and co-curricular activities. Our state-of-the-art Sports Complex and trained coaches for each sport encourage children to participate and excel in their favourite sports.
We endorse a strong parent-teacher relationship and encourage parents to be active participants in school events. We also organize ‘Coffee Mornings’ regularly for parents that give them an opportunity to meet and interact with other parents to build a strong bond. The coffee mornings are also an informal platform to meet the leadership team of the school.
Please contact us to arrange a tour of our school and to meet our sincere and dedicated teachers.

“The aim of education is knowledge, not of facts but values.”
~William S. Burrough
Education is not about becoming a bookworm but becoming knowledgeable day by day. Today the role of a school has drastically changed from just facilitating knowledge to one that imparts values, contributes to skill building and provides opportunities for the holistic development of each learner.
Excelsior’s vision and philosophy go hand in hand and this accelerates the growth of students individually. It teaches students to work together in a group for their self-development, and in turn, grow together. We always follow the “KEY” path- Keep Educating Yourself, and this is what makes our school different from all others.
We equip our students with the values of passion, compassion, and desire to learn. We at Excelsior strive to give your child a growth-oriented environment to work together and provide them with the best possible educational experience. I welcome you all to be part of this great endeavour.

Message from Vice Principal
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
Education is undeniably the key to eliminating many social evils, to reducing poverty, to creating a sustainable planet, to preventing needless deaths and illness, and to fostering peace.
The real education has to seep in deep and reflect in the behaviour of the child. A child in 21 st Century needs to be nourished with an ancient concept of “Vasudeva Kutumbkam”, raising them as global citizen. The role of the schools has extensively changed in the recent times. Today, schools are not only expected to literate the child but in fact educate and carve a global citizen who is ready to take over the world, is emotionally and intellectually balanced and is happy and resilient. At Excelsior, we provide a conducive environment that helps children to become the best version of themselves and fall in love with the process of learning. We allow them to stay curious and ask more questions by providing abundant opportunities for hands-on activities as opposed to cramming and making students future ready by keeping them updated with the latest trends in education. Other than these hardwares of the school which are visible, we also lay emphasis of the software known as life skills. One of our primary focus is to provide unceasing opportunities to the students for developing critical skills like, adaptability and optimism and try to prepares them to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of life.
We never underestimate the power of few kind words; a caring touch and right motivation and believe that these are needed to make a difference in the life of children and we, at Excelsior are determined to do so. I welcome you all to be part of this great endeavour.
