It is with immense pride that I participate in the contemporary educational landscape. Having contributed to the establishment of esteemed institutions like Zee School and NPS, where I orchestrated the creation of bastions of wisdom in 2016-17, I found inspiration and encouragement from fellow academicians and my family to embark on the journey of PNC Cognitio School. This institution bears the name of my cherished parents, a name that I proudly share with my students, staff, and all stakeholders, serving as a perpetual reminder that parents are our foremost educators and lifelong guides. It is indeed the sacred duty of every child to hold their parents in reverence.
Over the past decade, Bengaluru has blossomed into a wellspring of global talent, attracting fortune companies and becoming a multicultural haven for over 150 nationalities. This transformation has underscored the need for a school that aligns with the aspirations of modern parents. These aspirations are often shaped by personal triumphs, which in turn fuel their dreams for their children in an ever-evolving world. PNC Cognitio School represents my visionary dream, aiming to restore the “Breathing Space” that today’s generation of youngsters often lack, a sentiment deeply cherished by those who grew up in the 60s to 90s.
Spanning 7 acres, our campus provides a generous expanse for students to relish in the freedom of learning within capacious classrooms, innovative labs, and dedicated research areas. PNC Cognitio School aspires to be the cradle of future Change Makers and Sports Icons. Leveraging the power of technology, we keep parents well-informed about their child’s Learning Milestones achieved at the culmination of each learning phase.
I extend my heartfelt gratitude to all the parents who have entrusted their children’s education to PNC Cognitio School. Our commitment lies in unearthing and nurturing the unique talents of each individual. I am confident that your child will shine as another precious gem, illuminating their path through the educational avenues of PNC Cognitio School and the global stage. I firmly believe that PNCCS embodies “An Indian Mission and a Global Vision.”
