About the program:
Yellow Train is a school, founded on love for children.
We are a school that believes in the promise of a brave new world. And we believe that the children are the bringers of that dawn. We believe in an education that is forming, life giving and nourishing.
We work towards reclaiming the sacred in education. We believe education must meet the child. And it must meet the whole child.
We are inspired by the work of Rudolf Steiner and offer a Waldorf Program in our kindergarten and in the Primary Years. Our Middle School is a bridge between the intensely child centered Waldorf Program and the academically rigorous High School. Our High School and Senior School offer the IGCSE and A Levels by Ed Excel. Located in an organic farm, on the outskirts of Coimbatore, the school is a growing community of teachers and parents in search of holistic education.
Yellow Train is an International School offering IGCSE and A Levels located in Coimbatore. Yellow Train is consistently ranked in the Top 10 schools in the country by many bodies such as Education World, India Today, Better India, All India Education summit and many other platforms. Yellow Train is recognized amongst the top Waldorf schools in the country and is the only Waldorf School in Coimbatore. The founder, Santhya Vikram is constantly invited to speak about reforming education in many forums such as The UNESCO conference, the National Conference of CBSE Schools, Top 10 innovative schools at IIM Ahmedabad, Centre for Civil Society, School Choice National Conference etc. The building has been acknowledged and conferred with the Design and Architecture Award in 2015.
About the Role:
The Yellow Train Family. The Family of Teachers.
Teachers are society’s heroes.
India is a land and a culture where the place of the teacher was held sacred. Bringing back the reverence for the teacher and the task is something that inspires us at the school.
Revitalising the social identity of the Teacher and discovering passionate and talented teachers has been our pursuit. The school has an eclectic community of teachers from all walks of life – artists, doctors, dentists, healers, architects, engineers and various other professionals who have relinquished their careers to discover a teacher in them. The school offers various developmental programs for teachers and people aspiring to be teachers.
The school works to serve the children who come through the door to meet us each day. And at the heart of this endeavour, stands a circle of teachers, bearing the deepest conviction that they are supported by the spiritual world. And they, stand there, with an ability to intuit what the times are asking of the school today.
