Self-excellence (Utkarsht-ta)

Self-excellence is one of the most important philosophical foundations for all our work at ELMS Foundation. Our philosophy of self-excellence is based on individuals’ journey of continuous self-improvement and is thus not a destination like winning medals. We believe that by providing the right understanding and learning environment each student is capable of achieving success and realizing their full potential within and beyond the classroom.

We emphasize that "becoming your best" is important than being “better than the competitors”. To this end, we advocate:

  • Teaching the growth mindset - and that no one is perfect, everyone is growing.
  • Emphasizing on effort - give children the opportunities to learn and serve to see the results.
  • Encouraging practice - that helps children connect actions to events that help them repeat results.
  • Preventing the use of competitions as the basis for measuring success.
