    A NOTE FROM

    Head of School

    Surekha Dodmani

    At Utkarsha, we are geared up to use the best instructional practices to support the first generation learners. Our teachers work hard towards teaching these children how to learn. Our goal is to ensure that every child is provided with a clean canvas to explore, make mistakes, learn and grow.

    Our children need role models. You can support our children by visiting us and interacting with them and help our children to weave a dream.

    Our Teachers

    The teachers at Utkarsha are trained to handle the learning needs of first generation learners. They are aware of the emotional baggage and other related issues that the children come with to the school. The teachers focus on learning rather than completing the syllabus. Learning to understand and use it in everyday life is what Utkarsha stands for. Our teachers are ever ready to learn and share their experiences with anyone who has the interest to know more about our methodology.
