Kelvin International School believes in the philosophy of all round of the children through training all faculties of the mind and body through round the clock engagement. We maintain an unwavering commitment to academic excellence and entire development of our students. By providing the right academic inputs and an effective developmental environment, we make the journey of the child from the first hesitant steps enjoyable, enlightening and memorable.

The school underscores building up the general character a lot of the kids through a comprehensive program that urges them to take an interest in a wide scope of co – curricular exercises, games and sports.

To praise the scholastics program, the school as of now offers a wide scope of co-curricular exercises which incorporate Indian and Western Music, Folk and Classical Dance, Art and Craft, Dramatics and Public Speaking. All of these are conducted under the proper guidance of expert instructors.

The school perceives that the current repetition learning and chalk and talk methodology needs critical upgradation in the current day situation. Hence the school focuses around the idea of experiential learning that connects with students in Critical hinking, Problem solving and Decision making in context that are personally relevant to them. It inculcates these through an interdisciplinary program that is hands on and application skills oriented. This way to deal with learning includes activity, reflection, conceptualisation and reapplication.

Apart from the unit tests, results of which are implied to guardians, terminal assessments are coordinated twice every year. The half-yearly assessments take place in October/November while the final examinations are conducted in March each year.


Houses at Kelvin International School


We have the proper mix of academics and extra-curricular activities to promote the universal development of children. Activities like quiz, sports event and other competition are aimed at helping them discover their true potential. These have been proven to improve skills, boost self-confidence, and remove stage-fear, among others.

For this purpose, the students have been divided into four Houses, named after Constellations (Group of stars). They are: Orion (Red), Aquila (Blue), Lyra (Green) and Cygnus (Yellow). The various sports and other events are conducted among these four Houses to ensure maximum participation from the students, while encouraging healthy competition among the Houses.

Each House will headed by a House Leader who is ably supported by a Vice- Leader. Every teacher is allotted a House too. This promotes bonding and inculcates a healthy team spirit among the teachers and students alike. It also ensures that the children are trained for the various competitions by teachers from different disciplines.
