At HEBRON ENGLISH SCHOOL, BAGDOGRA Education for Life, Excellence in Education and Commitment to a meaningful Education are of prime importance. Quality education is provided to each and every child. HEBRON believes that love for education should be developed for children in the initial years and conditions should be created for them to pursue a positive approach in life.
A unidirectional teaching method is being increasingly substituted by a multidirectional group workshop method. Here the teacher becomes the group co-ordinator initiating work, nurturing students without the phobia of examinations and homework. Emphasis is on development of oral and written expression. Home assignments are not a carry-over of classwork but oriented towards honing individual talents.
HEBRON ENGLISH SCHOOL,BAGDOGRA is affiliated with the COUNCIL FOR THE INDIAN SCHOOL CERTIFICATE EXAMINATION (CISCE), which is duly recognized by the Department of Education, Government of NCT Delhi.
