Savitri Public School, Sangam Vihar, is one of the most prestigious schools in South Delhi, India. Founded as a Public School in 1990, the school campus, having an excellent layout, is supported by an academic complex, constructed beautifully.

Medium of Instruction: English
SAVITRI PUBLIC SCHOOL curriculum is based upon a 48 – lesson week schedule according to the following timings (Monday to Saturday):
Classes: From Pre-School (Nur) to Class XII for both boys and girls
- Curriculum : Our curriculum is aligned with the recommendations of the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT). We prepare our learners for the All India Secondary School Certificate Examination (AISSCE) conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for class XII.
- Teaching Methodologies- The goal of education in SAVITRI PUBLIC SCHOOL is to provide advance knowledge and disseminate truth. The methodology that the school follows for the teaching is:
- Authentic : to draw on the learner’s strengths and interests. Material and resources are drawn from and connected to the child’s world.
- Interactive : to foster participation and collaboration and to allow learners to interact with the real world.
- Child-Centered : to provide opportunities for learning through discovery so as to encourage creativity, thinking and problem solving. This also includes the learner in the development of lessons and the assessment process.
- Continuous: to give learners opportunities for acquiring knowledge in a holistic way by building on a variety of disciplines and learning environments.
- Process-focused : to teach subjects as ‘ways of thinking’, that rest on Intelligent Behaviours, so that the child can apply thinking models and diverse strategies, developing communication capacity as well.
- Integrated : to national consciousness as well as orientation in relation to India and the world.
- Junior School (Classes I-IV) : When a child is five years old and is ready for formal learning he is promoted from Elementary to Junior School level. The syllabus becomes more broad based at this level. Gradually, the young learner is exposed to a wide range of subjects and study material based on the CCE pattern. Apart from Mathematics, English, Hindi, E.V.S., Social Science, Science and Computer Education, students also learn subjects such as General Knowledge and Moral Science.
As early as Class I, students work on computers in a Multimedia Lab equipped for the needs of young learners.
From Class V onwards, a third language- Sanskrit- is introduced. Students have many choices for Work Experience, including pottery, public speaking, cookery (without fire) and clay modelling. Last but not least, to inculcate moral values and to promote general awareness among students, we organize regular inter-active and counseling sessions.
- Middle School (Classes V-VIII) : The Middle School program is designed to nurture the intellectual, ethical, social, emotional and physical development of youngsters during their transition from childhood into adolescence. We offers ample opportunities for the latent faculties of children to develop in harmony and in tune with their own potential. We believe that this is important for all-round development. Our School Curriculum grows out of a continuous striving to understand children, their talents and their requirements at each stage of life.
We are committed to providing an educational environment that challenges and inspires each child to achieve his or her true potential. A balanced and creative curriculum meets individual and common needs. Our endeavour is to ensure that each student is encouraged to learn, to feel empowered, to build confidence and self-esteem, to discover individual strengths and needs and to achieve success. From Class V to Class VIII, the curriculum as well as a variety of co-curricular activities continue to encourage creativity and a desire to learn. All students study English, Hindi, Mathematics, Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology), Social Studies (History, Civics, Economics and Geography) and a third language, Sanskrit. Co-curricular activities include Socially Useful & Productive Work (Art, Music, Dance, Science Club, Eco Club, and Literary Club), Physical and Health Education besides Computer Education.
Towards the end of Middle School, students start understanding their talents as well as strengths and can begin selecting subjects for their senior years at school.
- Senior School :
Classes IX-X- By the time the students reach Senior School, they have a clear understanding of what their choice of subjects might be in their final years in school.
The school follows the scheme of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) required by CBSE. The scheme consists of Formative and Summative Assessments over the entire year rather than a single examination at the end of each academic year. The Formative Assessment includes Class activities, oral assessments ( ASL), debates, projects, role-play, etc. These assessments provide continuous feedback to both teachers and learners for diagnosis and remedial measures regarding transactional activities and learning. The summative assessment is a pen and paper examination, at the end of each semester, that measures or ‘sums up’ how much a student has learnt during the term. The overall assessment of a child covers both scholastic and co-scholastic areas that include life skills, values and attitudes, physical education, art, SUPW, and work experience. Performance in scholastic as well as co-scholastic is part of the grades. For Classes III to X, CCE assessments based on a ten-point grade scale are recorded in the Report Card.
Classes XI-XII -These are the two most crucial years in every school student’s life on campus. They now find themselves on the threshold of choosing a career for their coming years in college and eventually a professional life. Students are required to select from one of the fields of study offered in which they can opt for four main subjects of their choice based on their past performance, aptitude and interest.
Students of Class XI and XII may take Commerce or Humanities course, each of which cover 5 subjects.
