Our School


It is indeed a great honour for me to be part of today’s educational system. From creating “Abodes of Wisdom” – infrastructures for reputed institutions like Zee School and NPS, in 2016-17 I was deeply moved and encouraged by fellow academicians and family to start PNC Cognitio School. The school is named after my beloved parents, which I proudly share with my students, staff and everyone, as a reminder that Parents are our first teachers, and guides for a lifetime and it is indeed the duty of every child to respect them. Over the last decade, Bengaluru city has evolved to be a Resource Hub of talent to the world’s fortune companies and a home away from home for over 150 nationalities that now reside in this garden city. Thus creating a need for a school that resonates with the aspirations of every parent. And today’s parents’ aspiration for education is driven by their own experiences of success. What do they dream for their child and the ever-evolving world? PNCCS is my dream school which aims to provide the “Lung Space” in the heart of Whitefield, Bangalore which today’s generation of children are deprived of, and which 60’s to 90’s children cherished.

The 7 acres campus gives ample opportunity for my students to enjoy the freedom of learning in spacious classrooms, learning labs and research points. It is our aspiration that PNC Cognitio School will be a birthplace of future Change Makers and Sports Icons. With the help of Technology, we are keeping our parents informed of the Learning Milestones their child is achieving at the end of every learning cycle.

This is the power of AFL – Assessment For Learning – which means the learners, strengths, and learning areas are identified and bridged during the learning process rather than at the end wherein a result is given, which could be of little use. In the last two years and this academic year 19 -20 we have undertaken such strategic steps towards our vision of a Quality International School. Resources teams from both India and abroad are now part of our Mentors Team to enhance the teaching-learning skills of every Cognitian Facilitator. As much as a Facilitator you too my “Parents” are an important part of your child’s learning. This academic year we have partnered with our parents as they have become mentors for the Navrathna Club thus together we can build a “Model Society ” by instilling the values and providing the avenues to build Gen Z skills that future model citizens, that is our students, should possess.

I thank all my parents who have entrusted their children to PNCCS. We are committed to creating and nurturing each one of their Unique Skills. I’m glad that your child will be one more Gem who will shine and shimmer his / her way through the learning platforms of PNC Cognitio School and the world at large. I strongly believe PNCCS is a school with “An Indian Mission and a Global Vision”.

The birth of a new era of learning with the world-renowned Finnish Pedagogy as our inspiration and Cambridge International School as our board pathway happened in 2017. PNC Cognitio School opened its doors to 269 young learners across the grades to a hub of a happy, experiential, and safe learning environment in its inception year. Set 7 acres campus, surrounded by greenery, it has become a home and flagship to the 21st Century learning experience. Thanks to the commitment and leadership of our Chairman Mr. Ramanjaneya S. R . B and other board members of the Pilamma Nagamma Chinappa Educational trust for establishing PNC Cognitio School as “Spacious” state of the art school in making and based on the cutting edge of student-driven learning. Today, in our third year we share a growth story of 589 students and still growing strong. In this century, schools carry responsibility for shaping and preparing children not only for content mastery but also to extenuate skills, values, and core competencies which will accelerate their opportunities in this digital age after their secondary learning. Cambridge Curriculum accentuates this vision of PNC Cognitio School. “Unique You” is the signature of our school’s pathway to create students who can write their own stories of success and leadership in avenues today we are aware of and the unknown that they will explore. As I move on to our fourth academic year in 2020-2021, we continue to provide the following support framework to help students get on board with the international curriculum and to be successful which includes:
  • The English Language Learner Program
  • Differentiated Learning Approach to support students with learning differences, and
  • The Accelerate Program helps gifted learners
PNC Cognitio School is an abode for learning wherein every child’s learning journey speaks about laughter, fun and mastery learning of every concept, which is supported by our tailored assessment tools, to evaluate every child’s learning. Our four pillars of Education are to inbuild the 4Cs – Creativity, Critical Thinking, Collaboration and Communication. Thus at the end of the learning journey at grade 10 or 12, every Cognitian is a Confident Child ready to move out into the world and create a niche for themselves, as each of them is “Unique You”.
