Ms. Anjali Chopra (Head Mistress)
Education can never be static, it needs to constantly change in order to be relevant to the need of the hour. At Lakshmipat Singhania Academy, we are trying to do the needful. Our focus is the "child". The curriculum design ensures that all aspects of a child's development - emotional, intellectual, moral, physical, spiritual and social, are interwoven. Through an "activity-oriented" teaching approach we are constantly stirring to broaden their range of experiences, introducing new possibilities, helping in developing skills (especially thinking analyzing and synthesizing) and empowering them to take responsibility of their learning.
We glorify what a child "can do" rather than "cannot" and this does wonders for their confidence. Our endeavour is to groom compassionate and conscientious young citizens of tomorrow, capable of taking the world in their stride and displaying the verve and vigor essential for every venture for every victory.
Ms. Ganga Sinha (Co-ordinator for Classes IX - X )
School is not an institution merely meant to impart education but has to shoulder far greater responsibility in terms of adding value to the society and the nation as a whole. As a teacher, we are not only responsible for imparting education but also ensuring holistic development of a child. It is of utmost importance to the society to have a “good and mature human beings rather than academic geniuses” who can drive the nation to prosperity and provide a congenial environment which can facilitate learning and strive for excellence. A child should not be judged merely in terms of his/her academic performance rather the evaluation should be based on overall growth and development in areas of interest. As an Academic Co-ordinator, I have the task of instilling discipline and motivating students to strive for excellence. I strongly believe, that judgements cannot be based just on the grades rather it is the efforts of the students which is important. Triumphs and Failure are part of life, while the former brings joy, the latter makes a person more determined towards his/her goals. Students should be nurtured and taught to give their best in anything and everything they do, and success will definitely follow.
Ms. Santosree Bhattacharya (Coordinator for the Examination Department)
A school is a transitional home in which children dwell while they are still young and tender; therein they are pressed over into certain standards and covered from head to heels with official rubber-stamps of ‘good’, ’better’ and the ‘best’. The most damaging phrase in this journey could be: “It’s always been done that way.” If everyone is thinking alike then somebody isn’t thinking. As a teacher, the most interesting thing to do is to ignite the spirit of being different. Let us all vow as teachers that we will redefine our roles as social reformists. Reformists who not only cover the syllabus but also discover it, reformists who not only form rules but reforms them, reformists who not only complete the portion but also ignite the desire to venture into the incompleteness of conventionalism, reformists who not only mature into leaders but also have the heart to forgive the immaturities in their students, reformists who settle down in a class only to unsettle the precipitated initiatives dormant in the young minds of their students. Let all differ, confer and offer. As an Examination Co ordinator of a school that looks beyond, my privileged responsibility is to make examinations, an activity that measures how much the examinees know than to measure how much they do not know. Between the two, the harder thing to handle, is the power of success than the blow of failure Examinations are intellectual eye openers whose outcome is not pass and fail. The outcome lies in an experience of an ‘attempt and rejoice'. Here at Lakshmipat Singhania Academy our motto is to inspire examinees to ‘attempt' all the questions of the undefined curriculum of life and ‘rejoice’ in the limitless and infinite experience.
Ms. Anju Munshi (Communicator)
There is a tendency to please the children today, by the parents. We see demands for expensive androids and tablets being met with by the parents. Branded laptops, iPods, iPhones, iPods, name it and they have it all . A thirty seven year old father fears his one year old child," it is better to hand over my cell phone to him, or else he will scream and shout. On being asked if the child knows how to use the phone, he beams in pride and says "he presses random numbers, fakes a conversation and stops crying". Quite a number of parents today express a kind of a helplessness when it comes to dealing with their toddlers .Pacifying children all the time is a also a peek-a-boo in the parents’ psyche .They don’t want to hurt them and in doing so they are covering up an inadequacy of their own. Comfort of the child is prime in our minds and rightly so. The intentions are noble but somewhere along, this model parenting is taking its toll on the well being of the child, making him feel insufficient and insecure with no sense of self worth and pride. A yes parenting is a form of over parenting and this interferes with self reliance and self worth of the child. Give them space and yet be the force they need behind them.
Children are a reservoir of energy and curiosity. They can use these traits in building up their knowledge base. They can practice integrity, honesty, patience and kindness in their everyday being and there by aim for a well - rounded personality.
Mr. Darshan Singh Gill (CCA Co ordinator)
At Lakshmipat Singhania Academy, good education is not merely academic instruction; it involves harmonious development of physique, a balanced development of emotions, a fair degree of socialization and the acquisition of a set of moral values which can help one throughout life. All this is not acquired in the class-room alone so the co-curricular activities also contribute its share in moulding a personality. Co-curricular activities provide numerous situations in which students may gradually get increasing responsibilities for their own direction. Through equal balancing of curricular and co-curricular activities, the students have the chance to exercise their rights and the opportunity to be multi-talented which helps to develop the holistic personality of the students to face the world of future.
Ms. Mitali Mukhopadhyay (Coordinator of Pre-Primary Section)
Ask a hundred kids to write or draw a picture of 'home' and some ideas that would come up will be comfortable, undamaging, enjoyable and pleasurable. These attributes are required by any individual to play, to rest, to grow and to work. Keeping this idea of 'home' in mind, we, at Lakshmipat Singhania Academy are working towards creating a similar conducive atmosphere of 'Home away from Home'.
As LSAites, we are loved, nurtured and raised to be equipped with confidence, imagination and discovery of ourselves which helps us to move towards a bright future. We are provided with the right inputs to grow into caring and sharing individuals, prepared to make the right choices in life and grow up to be responsible citizens.
We provide a positive environment in which children are encouraged to achieve their fullest potential. In an atmosphere of mutual support and dignity, each child is given the opportunity to aim for excellence within the framework of a diverse curriculum.
Each one of us has some talent and the grooming of that talent begins in this esteemed institution. We are encouraged to dream our dreams and to explore the opportunities that are offered on our journey called 'life'.
We aim at recognizing the individuality of each pupil and make learning a joyous and creative adventure.
Ms. Sohini Jain (Coordinator of Primary Section)
Education should turn out the pupil with something he knows well and something he can do well. We, at Lakshmipat Singhania Academy, are committed to providing our students with an enriching and stimulating learning environment. We acknowledge 'student voice' as central to the learning experience. In order to promote a holistic growth and development of our students, we believe that mere restriction to the confines of the classroom is not enough and therefore must not be an end in itself; rather, we strive to bring about a harmonious development of the child’s personality through a reflective humanistic approach to education.
At our academy, we strive to nurture the cognitive and critical skills of each pupil by breaking the monotony of the 'Chalk and Talk' method and venturing into a more creative and innovative method of learning. Our academy is a haven for these little ones, who, equipped with the finest infrastructure and guided by a team of enterprising teachers, find themselves pursuing their dreams and propelling steadily towards the realization of their goals.
Ms. Sunitha R. Dey(Coordinator of Middle Section)

Ms. Pronita Gupta (Coordinator of Classes XI - XII)
At Lakshmipat Singhania Academy we believe that students should learn best in a positive & supportive instructional environment. Learning continues when curriculum is presented in the students' best modality. A loving and caring environment is provided where individual personalities can develop and where students develop an appreciation of their personal worth. Attention is given to the intellectual emotional social physical and moral development of each student.

LSA being a child centric school the involvement of parents & the community as educational partners provide role models to help students become productive citizens and life-long learners.
Ms. Jaya Misra, PRO
The USP of our academy is innovation. Free flight of imagination is sought both by the teacher and the taught. The teacher gardeners sow the seeds of imagination today knowing full well that the same seeds will bloom into the leaders and innovators of tomorrow.
Our students don't fear to err. In fact, they believe in the power of the eraser and are aware that erasers are meant for those who are willing to correct their mistakes. Students are allowed to make new mistakes and learn from them, but not repeat the same one.
We celebrate the wonder and awe of childhood as a glimpse of God. Our aim is to instill in our students a feeling of self-worth and appreciation of their own and other people’s ethnicity, culture and language in a multi-cultural society. We are the architects, who are shaping humanity’s future, and the torch bearers carrying the light of knowledge and passing it from one generation to the other.
We have a strong Alumnus and we are confident that each batch passing out will bring about a change in society.
Gyanam Amritam !
