Principal's Message


Sown twenty years ago, and nurtured lovingly, a tiny seed grew into a  mighty tree whose spread and reach would draw generations of boys into the shelter of its protective boughs, affording them self-discovery, self-actualization, and some of the happiest years of their lives. This, briefly, is the story of MCKV.

It has been my proud privilege to have been intimately associated with this great school during its most exciting evolutionary phase that ultimately went on to define its nature and character. I have also watched with awe the catalytic role MCKV has played in its immediate neighbourhood, bringing to life Nelson Mandela's famous thought: "Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world."

At MCKV, we try to constantly update the pedagogies, methods, practices, and ideas that go into the teaching of the core curriculum of the Council for the Indian School Examinations. We try to align them with the demands of the times, which are moving farther and farther away from the conventional requirements of memorizing and recalling facts and processes, and high examination scores. We are very mindful of the fact that, increasingly, in today's world, practically all professions demand of its entrants the basic transversal competences of critical thinking, communication, creativity, collaboration, cross-cultural sensibility, ICT expertise, and sensitivity to a sustainable future, in addition to a sound academic foundation.

Therefore, a student joining MCKV would have the added advantage of functioning in a dynamic academic environment considerably shaped not only by the latest in education, but also by the spirit of the age.

We thank you for your interest in our school and look forward to a long and happy association with you.
