Holistic Education: Reverence for Nature: Community Engagement
The Krishnamurti schools were founded with the aim of bringing about a radical transformation in human consciousness. While imparting academic proficiency, the schools attempt to awaken intelligence and sensitivity in the child in a non-competitive environment.
Over 80 years old, the school was born out of a vision of Krishnamurti to set up a spiritual institution that will transform minds. The school is located at the confluence of river Ganga and Varuna in Rajghat, Varanasi. The school is residential and co-educational, with English as the medium of instruction. It is affiliated to the CBSE, New Delhi. The school has approximately 350 students in Classes IV-XII. A teacher-student ratio of 1:7 and class strengths of less than 25 across the school promote greater classroom interaction.

RBS Information Video
“First of all there has to be an atmosphere of immensity; the feeling that I am entering a temple. There must be beauty, space, quietness, dignity. There must be a sense of all- togetherness in the student and teacher; a state of floration, a sense of flowering, a feeling of extraordinary sacredness. There must be in him a quality of otherness.”
RBS Academic Theme
Learning in the Junior School is mainly through activities, especially arts and crafts story telling, plays, town watching and assembly presentations that are crucial for academic excellence.
At the level of Senior School, children are accorded higher levels of responsibility with the curriculum reflecting the onset of qualifying exams.
RBS Hostel Theme
Students reside in simple and comfortable hostels. There are separate hostels for boys and girls and usually students of two classes share a hostel. This encourages peer learning. Typically, about 15 students are looked after by a resident teacher-house parent. Indoor recreational facilities and activities keep the children engrossed in the hostels, preserving the familial warmth in an informal, caring environment.
