The school counselor has a session with each student at the start of the program and she facilitates regular sessions on stress management, goal setting, self management and mind power through out the year.

Parent teacher meetings are held after every assessment to apprise the parents about their child’s progress. Parents are encouraged to meet the counselor for guidance on how to motivate their ward and help in stress management.

Joining Akshara in 9th was not at all my plan at that time but I’m so glad that I did. I took away with me so many special memories and friends. You are never left alone
I joined Akshara in 2016 to pursue Science stream in Senior Secondary, and that is when my beautiful journey of JEE preparation started and culminated in IIT Delhi Computer Science Engineering.The arduous task of being balanced and focused during my two-year tenure was made easy by the constant support and encouragement given by our Director Mr. Jayesh Rathore, himself an IIT Mumbai Alumni.
I also take this opportunity to mention that my success is a consequence of the symbiotic relationship between my teachers and parents who endeavoured hard collectively to make my dream become a reality.”
I still remember my first day in Akshara clearly, as if it were just yesterday. It was a major switch! I was not only changing school but also shifting to a new board CBSE after having been in an ICSE school for 13 years. I was not scared but was very nervous and excited at the same time. As I entered my new school and proceeded towards my class, I saw many students and teachers, many faces all of which seemed quite friendly, yet unfamiliar at the same time.
Trust me, the warmth that they had extended to us that day remains today. The entire Akshara family is the sweetest family in this world, and I feel fortunate to be a part of it. The whole faculty is very sweet, supportive and caring. My journey in Akshara International School has been beautiful indeed and enriched by the presence of such amazing people around me. I look forward to making my school and teachers proud by achieving a very high score in grade 12 examinations.”
I want to start by saying Akshara International School is a fantastic school and I do enjoy it here. I joined Akshara in eleventh grade, and I noticed that the school focuses a lot on academics in class XI and XII. The learning experience is incredible, and every student gets individual attention. I have realised that I can grasp the concepts better and learning is more fun.
They say that school life is the most pleasant period of a person’s life. Well! Being a part of Akshara International School itself is an experience to cherish. I joined Akshara in grade 11 to pursue Commerce.
The experience at Akshara International School has so far been colorful. The school has made me more responsible, confident and disciplined. I am proud to be a part of this beautiful family where I am creating a strong base for my future.”
