About School
Education Redefined in PCMC Appreciated and admired as a frontrunner in the education sector in Maharashtra, The D Y Patil Group has become a name synonymous with quality education. Equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure, the group has a chain of over 100 educational institutions that encourage individuals to think, question, explore and apply their well-honed minds to scale greater heights of success.

The newest addition to the Dr.D Y Patil Educational Complex, Akurdi is the D Y Patil Dnyanshanti School that opened its portals in April 2019. With this the Dr.D Y Patil Akurdi Complex has courses from Nursery to Ph.D. The D Y Patil Dnyanshanti School is affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education. We are the first and only school in PCMC to freeze our fee structure until 2023. It will revolutionize the concept of school as we know it .The state of the art infrastructure will cater to the needs of the future citizens of a highly globalized world. The school is an emotionally safe and happy space which fosters creativity and innovation.. The School has AC classrooms, a large library, well equipped computer, Math and Science labs, Art room, Music and Dance room as well as student commons on each floor, where students can congregate outside the class . The wash rooms are a highlight as they are many in number and hygiene standards are of the highest order. The icing on the cake is our team of dedicated and proficient staff. A school is only as good as its teachers. The caring and committed staff ensure that each and every child is treated like a champion. Teachers focus on the strengths of every child in their care, encourage a growth mindset and model the qualities of mindfulness, collaboration and compassion. When a student steps out of the portals of DYPDSS he will be equipped to take life full on and lead a balanced and happy life, capable of contributing to a highly diverse and globalized world. Features: Dnyanshanti School is a proposed three section school . Each section from grade I to III will have 2 teachers and from grade IV onwards every two sections will have an assistant teacher. This teacher pupil ratio will ensure that no child is left behind and every child gets individual attention. Academic Program: DYPDSS aspires to stand out as a differentiator in the education scape of PCMC by providing very unique methodology of teaching. The school follows the curriculum and pedagogy as prescribed by the CBSE but goes way beyond it in terms of classroom delivery and content. It is holistic, flexible and multi-disciplinary with a focus on 21st century skills and aims at honing the unique potential of each child. It offers a distinctive line of teaching using multiple intelligences & catering to different learning styles, thus ensuring rapid physical and mental growth of all children. The Foundational years programme at DYPDSS takes into consideration the fact that the period from 3 to 8 years is most crucial for the growth and development of the cognitive abilities of a child . Brain connections multiply exponentially during these years and DYPDSS makes full use of this window of opportunity to ensure optimal development. Co-curricular Activities: To ensure accelerated physical and mental growth of students the school offers an exclusive array of co-curricular activities such as: Art, Indian & Western Music, Instrumental Music, Indian & Western Dance, Sports, Yoga, Dramatics, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Financial Literacy, Health & Wellness, Life skills, Personality development. Assessments: As D Y Patil Dnyanshanti is a CBSE school all norms prescribed by CBSE are followed. However we believe in concept clarity and application of concepts learnt. Promotion of higher order thinking skills will be the driver of our assessments. Safety & Security: The safety and security of all our stakeholders is of utmost importance. Lady security guards are deputed inside the premises and all common areas are under CCTV surveillance. An internal complaints committee and a POCSO committee is in place. Virtual School During these testing times we have not let our students feel left out. When the lock down was declared and we realized that schools were not going to be functioning for an indefinite period we immediately took to online lessons via Zoom and then MS Teams. Both students and teachers have adapted to technology seamlessly. In addition to academic subjects there is Art, Music (Indian & Western) Drama & Life Skills being conducted online. During the summer break, realizing that students would be confined to their homes we organized a virtual summer camp and talent hunt. There was an overwhelming response across grades. Even our nursery students surprised us. The school has also arranged for a weekly class with the counselor so that students got a chance to speak up if they were facing any issues. The counselor makes it a point to engage with students individually in case she feels there is a problem. We all are aware, that every child is a powerhouse of talent. In order to boost their hidden talents, we also planned several activities under the CCA banner. We are waiting for schools to reopen physically so that students can enjoy the fabulous infrastructure and facilities as well as the company of classmates and teachers. It also gives us immense pleasure to share with you that more than 90% of our parents are extremely happy and satisfied with the online classes. 91% of our parents are more than happy to recommend our school to friends and family. We believe that parents and school have a common goal i.e. to see our students being successful and happy. Towards the achievement of this goal if school and parents work hand in hand success is inevitable. Here are Top 10 Schools in Pune.
