At Ecole Globale we believe that both family and school work collectively to ensure a child’s development. In order to achieve this, we have a very transparent system at place that helps us work as a team with the parents. Our boarding is an extension of home and we want our students to love their schooling experience with us
We understand the need for student- parent interactions and ensure that our students stay connected with parents through regular phone calls, letters, emails and even Skye calls. However, we limit these interactions to twice a week phone calls and once a week emailing and Skye calls, in order to help the girls make new friends and find a new life away from home. We enable effortless communication between the two but in a controlled and disciplined manner.
We keep the parents apprised and connected to their child’s development by regularly sending their progress reports to them. In case of some problem or emergency, parents are contacted immediately and taken into confidence. Our web page is also kept up to date with the latest news and happenings in school. We also make an effort to send individual mails to parents if there is something to keep them informed about.
The rest of the time, the pastoral staff and the school PR department are available for any queries or problems the parents might want to address
The school believes that social exposure contributes to a child's development and grooming. It provides them a stage for experiential learning and Independent thinking, while teaching them time management, team work and fosters bonding beyond the school boundaries.
We believe it provides the girls the opportunity to interact with people from diverse cultures and at the same time makes them confident young adults.
We understand the need of student- parent interaction. We enable effortless communication between the two but in a controlled and disciplined manner. This is also monitored.
We have built excellent resources to enable this. Our liaison is multilingual in order to reach out to international students. Our admission staff helps students get comfortable in their new learning environment. All our departments meet once a month to discuss every child’s performance and well being individually. In case of some problem, parents are contacted and taken into confidence. The latest news is updated in our website where as mails are also sent for recent updates.
There are scheduled outings every alternate weekend, which is led by a member of staff. The girls are allowed to have a day out on ten Sundays in one academic year. They are also entitled to have one night out with their guardians once in a month. The recreation program also provides for practical pursuits that support a boarder’s transition to the world beyond.
The cost involved with outings is closely monitored to inculcate respect and value for money amongst students. A series of low cost activities are always included in the module, at the same time they are planned to provide children the exposure to newer environments.
At Ecole Globale, we aspire our girls to be global citizens. To facilitate this we have designed inbound and outbound exchange programs, which widen the students’ perspectives and help them understand the dynamics of management in other countries. We also invite teachers from across the border to interact with students and help them gain a global perspective. These exchange experiences provide our girls with a chance to meet a wide variety of people, visit beautiful cities, learn different ways of doing things and have diverse opportunities to expand one's horizons.
In an era of global ambitions and shrinking distances, today’s student is bound to get internationally involved in his lifetime, with most of them aspiring for university admissions abroad. That is why we believe that International exposure is the key for a student to gain an edge over the competition and also have a more global perspective.

The program helps students learn about international relations, United Nations and diplomacy. Through this program students acquire leadership abilities and the art of good public speaking. Along with this they become good debaters who think critically and can actively participate in discussions on social issues faced by the world.
The school picked up MUN right from its inception. The students first participated as observers and later on as active delegates. The school has now already participated in MUNs hosted by schools in Singapore and India.

Everyone around is very caring, genuine and we have real educationists for teachers. After studying in Ecole, I have more confidence and higher self esteem.
As a teenager, I feel my issues are very well addressed by my teachers. We are in very safe hands as our teachers and extended staff is very caring and affectionate.
