I am an educator by choice. The inspiration from the teachings of Swami Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo and J.Krishna Murthy. In my formative years initiated me to sacred the field of learning and teaching. For the last 28 years, I have been engaged in the field of education in various capacities and exploring the possibilities of transformation through education.
I am quite convinced that integral education is the panacea for the all-round development in the society. Holistic education based on a true understanding of the child and his or her culture milieu, guided by the ancient but ever new spiritual values would bring out the right kind of freedom and intelligence in the child and adult as well.

An institution built on the philosophy of “learning to learn happily and mindfully” can be founded only on the building blocks of tradition and technology. When tradition of a 2000 year old civilization, home to Nalanda, Taxasilaand birth place of four major religions join hand with the technological revolution of the 21st Century, Pollock’s Intelli takes shape. An institution firmly rooted in the belief that humane skills have to be harnessed for the betterment of the society and not just for developing scope for employability.
At Pollock’s Intelli, every learning space is curated ensuring a real world connection. Our mission is to develop human minds that will not only lead the world but also impact the society in the most positive way. Ecologically sensitive, world wise future citizens who are prepared to take on the challenge of an unknown future that awaits them.

A typical classroom learning experience for learners in our school often revolves around the ‘Why’ of a concept and seldom restricted to the ‘What’. The ground plus three quadrangle layout of our vivid campus provides the ideal learning environment, where inquiry and curiosity are nurtured with the fivesenses. The sight,sound, touch smell and feel of everything that is life and world around, for our learners is simulated through creative and constructive learning methodologies. The instructional activities are designed to motivate learners in ‘doing things’ so that their thinking becomes visible to the facilitators. This allows timely feedback which helps every learner construct knowledge in their own style to achieve the learning goals of the curriculum. The ‘active classrooms’ provide opportunities to ‘engage with the content’ collaboratively with the peers and reflect systematically to ‘consolidate the day’s learning meaningfully. Over years of such exposure, children grow up to love learning and challenge their own abilities lifelong.

Our learners are armed with life skills that they develop in our futuristic classrooms. A learning space which in principle works on ‘peer learning’. Lev Vygotsky, the world renowned soviet psychologist, strongly believed that community plays a central role in the process of ‘making meaning’ of the classroom information. We firmly believe a range of skills that can be developed in the Zone of Proximal Development with teacher facilitation and peer collaboration. Reason why students at Intelli never spend more than 20 minutes sitting in one position. Learning at Pollock’s Intelli completely revolves around “working together, building together, learning together, changing together, and improving together” not just in academics within the walls of the campus but in real life, interacting positively with people who think differently.
At Intelli, Competition makes us faster; Collaboration makes us better.In the learning landscape of Visakhapatnam,Pollock’s Intelli stands apart not because of any complicated pedagogy but the simple truth that the institution believes in and practices that “nobody can teach anybody”,‘we can only learn how to learn” because learning by nature is an active process. This unassuming idea lays at the foundation of all knowledge edifice. We strive to take this to its excellence through all our endeavours.
