Dr. (Ms.) Chandrakanta R Pathak (CEO)
HVB Global Academy is a prestigious IBDP and CAMBRIDGE INTERNATIONAL authorized school in South Mumbai offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (since 2010) and the Cambridge Assessment International Education (since 2014). In its 55 Golden Years, HVB has been a foremost educational institution and HVB students are aware learners who seek key leadership roles in the complex process of how and what education should deliver to their lives.
The HVB student profile is the school’s mission statement translated into a set of learning outcomes for the 21st Century Learner. HVB Mission Statement holds attribute values that infuse the whole school ethos and encourages our students to imbibe a value-based learning culture that in turn harnesses a skill based understanding of the curricula. HVB Mission Statement is to offer a meaningful, globally connected and comprehensive educational programme to its students regardless of personal circumstance, so as to empower them to explore their natural curiosity and creativity.HVB students are global citizens who are internationally minded and are willing conductors of positive change in society. HVB students are expressive about their need to find themselves and their understanding of the world around them in all they learn at school.
My role as a visionary educationist is charted along the two-fold path of methodology and mentoring. HVB promotes smart and ethical students who are proud to call themselves global citizens of the future. HVB endorses a project based learning approach and takes initiative pathways towards Students asking the big questions in their classrooms. Experiential learning and conceptual inquiries at HVB form our classroom narrative along with numerous other projects facilitating the teaching-learning process. These projects are for students as well as parent stakeholders and seek to influence HVBians towards championing an integrated curriculum experience at HVB. I am a dynamic educationist, self-driven and passionate about my school. I celebrate unconventional innovations and evolving methodologies that accentuate the teaching learning process. My students are my true brand ambassadors. Along with my team of teacher-mentors, I work to establish an enquiring mind-set for teaching and learning at HVB. Students are immersed in several projects sensitizing them to nation-building activities. This I believe is essential for instilling pride as well as accountability towards our local context and in augmenting our students’ nationalistic pride.
