The admission policy will reflect the general ethos and philosophy of the
Springdales Schools run by the Springdales Education Society (Estd. 1956).
The schools are inter-generational, and promote inclusivity, integration
and heterogeneity in their student community. They impart a wholesome
education, which develops in Springdalians good citizenship, social
responsibility and multi-faceted talent. The school motto "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam - the world is a family" permeates the
entire curriculum and elucidates its commitment to an integrated secular
India and a peaceful and a socially just world.
The Management, staff, alumni and parents share a collective vision and
mutual purpose in education so that the students may fruitfully contribute
to the wider society and address the realities and concerns of our country
and of the world.
Springdales has a clear DIVERSITY POLICY in place, which is
reflective of the Constitutional goals of our nation. We believe in the
