Akshar is a Sanskrit word that means both "syllable" and "infinite". Arbol is a Spanish word for "tree". The confluence of the two is what we stand for - Nurturing Young minds by providing a firm rooting to reach out to the infinite growth opportunities.
The seeds for Akshar Arbol International School have been sown by Sri. R Subramanian, a renowned Chartered Accountant in Chennai. Shri Subramaniana's long term dream has been to build a high quality educational institution with values that will mould and mentor children to become world class global citizens. His passion for education stems from his family lineage where education has always been cherished and nourished. Hailing from a family of erudite scholars, he truly believes that education must be holistic, focusing on the 21st century needs of inculcating essential skills and attitudes.
Backed by a highly experienced group of eminent educationists, Akshar Arbol International School is a unique international school with programmes of two internationally recognized boards, where an open-mindedness towards divergent thinking and innovation, backed by sound knowledge is the founding philosophy.
The need to impart this from a young age prompted Sri R Subramanian to take the initial step of establishing a full school beginning with Pre school. In line with this philosophy, the International Baccalaureate and the Cambridge International Examination programmes have been adopted as the pedagogy at Akshar Arbol International School.
The school has two campuses: one that is strategically located in the periphery of Chennai's commercial and business hub and the other in the growing South Eastern suburb Neelankarai.
With the judicious use of space and meeting the high standards of the programmes, our international school provides high quality academics. A fine balance between the use of technology, conventional methods of teaching and outsourcing to professionals, Akshar Arbol International School promises a very interesting mix in schooling.
