Creating a Community Of Life-Long Learners
It was the year 1997, when Subhadra Educational Society started on its lifelong journey of imparting quality education, and thereby the SNBP group of institutions was founded. SNBP became a brand which endorsed the ‘how to think and what not to think’ learning methods, excelling in providing the best academic/co-curricular learning in the state of Maharashtra. The group of institutions openly preached the ideas of classroom discussions, which included topics not only from the curriculum, but also from topics like global affairs, sports, and other platforms, enabling higher GK quotients among the students. Running successful schools which provide best education across the major educational boards available in our country, the brand envisions growing and starting schools and institutions in other parts of Maharashtra as well.
The SNBP group of institutions believes in the concept that education is a harmonious process, which involves active participation and development of physical, mental, social, spiritual powers of an individual, and therefore the management is always at the forefront helping students develop into complete well-learned independent thinkers. Best methods are adopted at SNBP, putting in impressive efforts to make sure that all the institutions under the umbrella of SNBP have the best infrastructure, and a congenial environment for learning.
Further conceptualizing and reinventing unique yet uniform means of teaching across various branches of the group, SNBP started an International School in Wagholi. Excelling in every aspect of providing a thorough schooling experience, and coming as a proof of acceptance and excellence, SNBP Wagholi was awarded for providing exceptional talent development programs, and it came as a boost to the already existing positive workflow at the SNBP group of institutions.
