Satya Bharti Schools provide quality education to children in rural India, most of who are first generation learners. Keeping this in mind, the school curriculum has been designed to help children better understand what they are being taught. Encompassing both classroom as well as out-of-class activities, the program aims to develop students holistically by inculcating in them the correct attitude and life-skills that will hold them in good stead later in life. While innovative Teaching Learning Material (TLM) enhances their classroom experience, special programs like The Physical Education Curriculum (PEC) are used to make outdoor learning more meaningful. Other interventions like the English Phonics Program and use of education software aid the delivery of English and computer education.
