Vidyaranya High School was established in 1961 in Hyderabad, India by its founder Shanta Rameswar Rao, located at the foot of Naubath Pahad. According to the school, its underlying philosophy is derived in part from the teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti, and a reason the school is special is that "the teachers are as open to learning as are the children".
While the ICSE based syllabus is followed in the higher classes, the school functions with a unique ideology. The competition is deemphasized, in an unconventional teaching format "beyond a syllabus and examinations", which are administered from class VIII and upwards. There is no prescribed uniform for the students; children are taught to dress appropriately. Although Vidyaranya is an English-medium school, great importance is given to Indian languages, Indian music and culture as well as English literature, Indian History, literature, Western music (singing), multi-cultural activities, crafts, student plays, and sports. Students are encouraged to learn and play by questioning and thinking—all of this in a spirit of cooperation and compassion rather than competition.
The 5 acre school campus offers an ideal atmosphere for academic and extracurricular pursuits of the students. The campus hosts 28 spacious classrooms. It believes strongly in human interactions and does not depend on ICT learning and other electronic gadgets for imparting education.
The school offers separate, well equipped laboratories for Physics, Chemistry, Home Science and Biology and a Math Lab/Puzzle Lab, besides lab rooms for the hands-on science skills workshops.
The well stocked school library features an exhaustive collection of books and subscriptions to almost all daily newspapers, weekly/monthly journals and magazines. The school offers play fields for sports activities such as volleyball and basketball and does not encourage students to use computer, internet or Wi-Fi, these being restricted to office use only.
The school canteen serves healthy, nutritious vegetarian food. Each floor of the school building offers first aid facility and all teachers are trained in providing first aid treatment to their students during emergencies.
Vidyaranya High School is affiliated with CISCE and offers classes from kindergarten to class X. The school discouragescompetition that aims only at scoring higher grades than your peer and rather lays emphasis onlearning with a mind free of fea.
Extracurricular: The school promotes extracurricular activities such as drama, craftwork and group singing, all of which are considered important part of the school culture. The school also organizes hands-on science skills workshops and educational trips for its students.
