Neev Academy is an IB Continuum School located in Bangalore, India. Our vision is to create the benchmark of excellence in education in a changing India. Our mission is to build knowledge, self-awareness and relationships with people & the environment to seek happy, healthy, impactful lives.
Neev is an intellectually challenging, creatively vibrant, and diverse community of children and teachers set up to meet the needs of a changing India – with the return of neighborhood schools where children don’t have to make the trade - off of 2 hours of commute for 30 minutes of sports, schools which move beyond either/or, focusing on academics and creative thinking, recognizing that what has helped some of us succeed as global Indians will not meet the needs of our children in a rapidly globalizing world, where value moves from resources to knowledge to ideas; a world where joining the dots is as essential as the strength of those dots.
Neev seeks to build knowledge, self-awareness and relationships with people and the environment to seek happy, healthy, impactful lives - keeping in line with the IB mission of producing global citizens.
We see education as being transformative in that our aim is to instil in our students the knowledge that will make them better learners and better people. And how can we ensure that we send them off into life with the skills they really need to grow and develop in a successful, happy way.
To that extent we offer three IB education programmes, each for a different age group. Together, the programmes provide a critically engaging, intellectually stimulating, personally uplifting and inspiring continuum of education.
Research plays a central role in the development, quality assurance and assessment of IB programme outcomes. Outcomes research to investigate the impact of IB programmes on students, teachers and schools, and Curriculum research to support the development and review of all programme curriculum and pedagogy. The Head of each department at Neev approaches his or her subject across grades with this same outcome focus in mind to build a wholesome learning experience.
