Philosophies and Philosophers

Tattva

We find that the parental dilemma has only increased over the years in terms of the “philosophy” parents want to follow in their educational decision for the child. Choosing a school would be the easiest thing to do if the decision was purely based on tangibles like property, infrastructure, or financials. It is the intangible, priceless underlying philosophy of the school that makes this decision-making process very brutally tough.

Tapas follows a holistic model that allows parents to dabble in and explore multiple philosophies that have proved to be successful across decades, across geographies, and most importantly, across cultures. Tapas School has been constituted to overcome the challenges that plague today’s education system. Tapas is an innovative space that combats the twin problems of learner disengagement and low academic achievement.

Taking inspiration from our ancient wisdom, extracting the best of the current proficiencies, deeply rooted in a vision for a sustainable tomorrow, Tapas is a micro institution with macro ideals.
