Our son has been exposed to MatriKiran for just about a month now as a part of their Pre-Nursery program. While it is too early to form an opinion on his learning and development, we have noticed that he is happy to go to school every morning, and he comes back happy. I feel, that’s good enough for a child. Learning happens once the child gets a conducive environment and supportive facilitators. MatriKiran, has a simplistic feel, a beautiful environment and desired infrastructure to support the learning requirements and curiosities of a child.
We like MatriKiran because of two simple notions that we share philosophically.
Simplicity is beautiful and most important when it comes to rearing a child. They need very simple and basic things like love and an open environment physically and mentally.
Children are instinctively curious and learners, and to learn, they need nothing else than a conducive environment and loving guidance. MatriKiran, follows these in word and deed.
A child might come to school crying but should always go home happy, they believe and a happy child is what they send. I love MatriKiran facilitators for keeping my child happy.
Jasmine Mishra Mother of Adhrit Mishra Nursery
We first got to know about MatriKiran in 2012 (first year in GGN). We just got married at that time and visited the school for my niece's program. Both me and my wife were delighted and excited to see how MatriKiran was different than any other school. The focus and attention on each student is of paramount importance. They understand each student is different and thus allow him/her to learn at their pace.
Thus when we our baby girl was three years old we choose MatriKiran.
Mehul Mohta Father of Mahika Mohta Nursery
MatriKiran is a school which nurtures each child as if he/she is the most important child in the world.
The moment you enter the facility: right from the guards, the didis, reception and the entire staff is affable and very grounded.
The approach, the method is highly inclusive and focusses on the joy of learning.
Geetika Sharma Mother of Arjun Sharma Nursery
Picking the right school initially was a difficult decision, especially when moving to a fastest growing city Gurgaon. Even though Gurgaon has a vast amount of citizens from all parts of India, it always feels rather lonely to uproot your family. So our primary searches for schools were based on both a school that focused on communication and leadership in the students from an early age, strong academics, and last but not least, a school that was caring and kind and warm to ensure confidence, and a feeling of security for our son Rishank. We found this with MATRIKIRAN.
We chose it because they took a unique interest in our son even before he started. As Rishank joined school during midterm they made an effort to know him and are continuously motivating him to strive to be the best he can be.
We strongly recommend MATRIKIRAN.
D. Nagendra Prasad, Tirupathi Father of D. Rishank Prasad Nursery
One of the best things about MatriKiran is the emphasis on the child as an individual. Teachers help the child explore his or her own growth path. This is unlike other schools, where focus is on creating a homogenised set of learners. Moreover, the focus on co-curricular activities such as art, yoga, clay modelling, and more, help in the balanced growth of the child. At the same time, the child is extremely clear in the core academic principles of phonics, maths, Hindi and environmental studies. Also, there is an openness about the daily activities at the school, with regular interactions taking place between teachers and parents. The teachers identify each child's unique needs and work on them, such as in my case -- helping a fussy eater enjoy food.
Avantika Bhuyan Mother of Varnika Bhuyan Nursery
The personalized attention which is given by the teacher to the kids is excellent. Also in parents teachers meeting a detailed analysis Is given so that we know how to improve our kid. I also like the free flow activities where the kids are allowed to use their imaginations and get more confident.
The minute you walk into MatriKiran you feel the warmth and energy of the school community. The faculty and staff are dedicated and caring individuals who always put the needs of the student first. The love of learning and the spiritual values instilled in our son will last a lifetime. As parents, there is no greater joy than hearing from our child say how much he love his school… it was the best decision we could have made for our child.

IN THE TWISTER OF A FUTURE MEMORY
A child is an echo in the future. A child is - A Free Spirit incarnate. A child is uncontained, unconditioned, unbound and unstoppable. 'Picasso' - the greatest artist of all time said,
"When I was a child, I wanted to paint like a master. When I came to be known as a master, I wanted to paint like a child."
To remain as the spirit and the heart of a child, a lot depends upon the environment one grows up in. We as adults have lost the freedom that we see in our little ones. At 'MatriKiran', this process has reversed. It is not just a school for us, it is an institution, a world beyond, and above all - A friend we trust our child with. It was the last school we came across in the list and the first and only one we went to, the one that lead to instant decision.
'MatriKiran' is an institution of courageous people who have come together with a mission to retain childhood in its glory forever. Their experience is 'DIFFERENT' from conventional schools. Be it any other school in Gurgaon, 'MatriKiran' is simply the best. A brilliant school with absolute freedom for every child. We recommend this school for every parent who wishes that their children remain as pure, independent and courageous throughout their lives as they are in their tender years.
Life is infinite. The future depends on the past. And, the present is just every instant of happiness. While we all as parents work night and day to make life better for our children, we must do so with equal courage to face our twisters of problems just like a child; facing life with no knowledge of the word called- fear, solving with no knowledge of the word called- failure, and looking forward to learn as much with excitement with no idea about the word called- ego. EVERYTHING IS JUST THERE FOR US TO BE NATURAL AND GAIN HAPPINESS FROM... AND MATRIKIRAN EXCELS IN THIS UNDERSTANDING AND PRACTICE! We wish MRS. JYOTI GUHA & all her associates in this endeavor –
Sudarshan Ramakrishna Chetlur & Rajmee Baruah Sudarshan Parents of Idhant Sudarshan Chetlur Kindergarten
I have been a member of MatriKiran family for 4 months now and i am proud to say that i chose the right school for my 4 yr old. Initially i was a bit skeptical about how my baby would adjust in a completely new environment but a few days into the school pushed away all my doubts. The entire staff including the transport staff, school staff n facilitators have been so helpful and wonderful and i owe the team a big thanks as because of your care my son actually looks forward to going school everyday. Above all, the thing i like most is they keep my child in touch with reality which also helps to keep him grounded, with nothing sophisticated complicating his early years. He is enjoying life as a 4 yr old actually should.Keep up the good work.
Dr. Garima Garg Seth Mother of Jaiditya Seth Kindergarten
When I was looking for a school for my boy, who is our first child, I had no experience of school hunting or school selection. There were multiple recommendations regarding established schools by friends, and I was unsure. Then I visited MatriKiran – purely because of it's proximity to my residence. And I was so pleasantly surprised – as I entered the school,
I was greeted by a vast expanse of green, trees and bushes laden with flowers – quiet, peaceful, airy, serene. Just the way it should be- ideal for a place of learning. I met the principal who was kind enough to explain the philosophy of SrI Aurobindo, which guides the learning methodology of the school. My decision was made – I was clear that my boy is going to MatriKiran ! It was three years back ! And he has blossomed into a fine little "gentleman" – caring, sensitive, sauve and able to beautifully express himself is ever new ways, which is so delightful to watch. I am not sure about academic progress as he is too young to be judged in any meaningful way, but I am delighted that he is getting educated in a "rote" free system where the emphasis is on experience rather than memorizing.
Overall a very satisfying experience. MatriKiran, to me is the hidden gem in Gurgaon ! And I am lucky to have found it Kind regards,
Baljit Singh Father of Kabir Singh Grade-1
I moved my daughter to MatriKiran from another prestigious school after one visit, 2 years ago. The reason for the same was that every parent we met who had their ward in this school praised it effusively. The learning approach taken in the school is experiential, which means learning through experience. I see that working beautifully for my daughter. She comes back and shares her learning with us in a completely descriptive fashion which makes us realise the efforts being taken by the teachers to teach effectively. She has also started becoming more independent, in both her views & actions which is very encouraging.
I strongly recommend MatriKiran to any of the parents looking for a positive & different option for their kids.
Himanshu Arora Father of Arayna Arora Grade-1
MatriKiran, the school that changed life of our Kid Dheer Arora (Kindergarten) and that too in such a short span of time that he is studying with you. They do the overall development of your child which is much more beyond the academics. The fact that my kid would start his day with Meditation is simply unique and satisfying that MatriKiran is laying a foundation for such a noble generation to come. The best experience we as parent till date is "Khel Utsav" wherein literally everyone took part from kids to teachers to parents to staff and even security staff of school.
Yamini & Amit Arora Parents of Dheer Arora Grade-1
MatriKiran is one of the new school in Gurgaon with distinct and clearvision under the guidance of principal Mrs Guha. Entire MatriKiran family is very helpful. Visitors may sense the values and calmness on their first visit to school as per my personal experience.
The school has its own way to teach the kids and by the end of the day the smiles on my son's face tell me that how happy and comfortable he stays at school.
As a mother I feel very comfortable to be in touch with the class teacher or office staff whenever required.
We as parents are very happy that Asmit my son who is in Grade -1 is part of MatriKiran family.
Archita Dutta Mother of Asmit Dutta Grade-2
Looking back a nearly a year from today, we feel fortunate to have discovered MatriKiran for our daughter. Having learnt about the philosophy behind the school, our first visit into the calm, positive and warm learning environment of the school made us feel right at home and we knew immediately that we would be happy to entrust our precious child into your loving hands.
With the passage of time we see the amazing effects that integral education has had on our child. Her love for music, nature and sensitivity to all around her are some of the things which have been nurtured in MatriKiran.
Parent meetings with the Principal are a rendezvous which we look forward to as these make our connect with this Institution so much stronger. We feel more and more confident that the school is our perfect partner in contributing a worthy citizen to the world.
Thank You for all your efforts!
Anushka & Vikash Singh Parents of Veda Singh Grade-2
This is our child's third year at MatriKiran. I must say these three years have been enriching not only for our son but for us, parents, as well. We find that the school creates a quiet, warm and an unconstrained environment towards learning. There is a lot of stress on application and on providing experiences in real world situations, and we see our child wanting to practice his learning at home on different kind of things. For instance during a mathematics session of KG the teacher asked children that if they bought goods worth Rs 5/- from a shop and gave Rs 100/- to the shopkeeper, how much money will they get in return. Now we have our child wanting to apply this maths every time we make a payment in cash. We believe this practical and application based approach will lay a good foundation for children to try and grasp concepts than just learn. One of the other aspects that we would like to highlight is the ritual on circle time. This is typically the first activity in the class everyday where children have to share something from their experience of the previous day at home. We think this is a good way to encourage children to shed inhibitions about expressing themselves in front of others and to become patient listeners. From some of the off class activities that we have witnessed in the school and the way children undergo practice for these activities, we see the absence of any measurement/judging mechanism for these activities. We find this particularly good as it puts away any burden on children to perform. I remember that while the Sports Day has races, games and other physical activities but none where children are ranked. In fact, the children were told to focus on their own game/exercise and work towards finishing than coming ahead of the other. Overall, we find the school to be a good platform to get experiential learning and imbibe the values and beliefs that we'd ourselves like to inculcate in our child. We think the curriculum, methodology and belief system of school has been conceived thoughtfully by an experienced and a committed Principal that is quietly and efficiently trying to create a distinguished experience for children.
Ashish & Urmita Sethi Parents of Advay Sethi Grade-2
I have been a MatriKiran parent for 2+ years now and am absolutely delighted with the progress that my child has had at the school.
What is most refreshing is the school's focus on getting the basics of personality building right, before fixating on education or curriculum.
I hope they will be able to build better and more complete human beings passing out every year.
Manvi Diljun Mother of Merwan Diljun Grade-2
We are confident that MatriKiran was the right choice for our daughter. After moving to India from a different country, our daughter was able to adjust very quickly and happily to the school, due to the nurturing and supportive environment of the school. The teachers are truly caring and professional giving individual attention to kids, meeting educational and emotional needs of children. Along with an integral approach to teaching, the school has the availability of a large variety of activities like clay art, ballet, gymnastics, yoga and skating which engages the kids actively.
There is a great balance of learning and activities in a friendly atmosphere in MatriKiran. The school campus with its serene, open and safe environment is welcoming to the kids. The school also organizes field trips frequently which help the kids learn practically. Most importantly the school has an emphasis on holistic development of the child. Our daughter really loves her school and we are very satisfied with "where and how" she spends a major part of her day. We would gladly recommend MatriKiran to any parent looking for a great school for their child.
Snigda Chukka Mother of Sweeya Gandra Grade-2
Mom, Dad, today we did an interesting thing at school...", " how many more days left for school to reopen?", " I cannot imagine missing my gymnastics class". These are just a few of the many happy and excited expressions my 6 year old daughter Ahana uses when talking about her school. No doubt she loves going to school!
As a family that values alternative education and innovative teaching-learning methodologies, we were always on the look out for a school where our daughter would receive holistic education. MatriKiran perfectly fits that description. Their sensitive approach towards children along with an overall attitude for care is extremely reassuring. Ahana joined MatriKiran in Nursery and is currently in Grade 1. As parents, we are happy with her progress both academically and as an individual and hope to continue her in the same school. Our biggest satisfaction lies in the fact that she enjoys going to school and comes back happy everyday!
Bijita Devsharma Mother of Ahana Devsharma Grade-2
My child is in Grade1. My son's journey with this school started 2 years back.
What really drew me to the school at the first instance is the serenity, the calmness that prevails in the atmosphere! I had extensively researched and visited almost all the schools to get a first hand experience. And till date I feel MatriKiran has been the right choice for my son, reasons being :-
Being a doctor myself, it was very important for me that the school environment should be healthy- class rooms in MatriKiran are the most nature friendly, spacious, well ventilated, they open out to green spaces......perfect to stay in communion with nature. On the academic front, the school follows experiential learning format....many schools claim to follow this, but really end up with only rote learning. This is where I have found the difference. They will not make the child boastful and come every other day with a note it tag saying I have learnt three letter word or I can read a sentence . But genuine learning is happening all the while... I was pleasantly surprised to see my son's progress in all the subjects be it maths, English , Hindi or EVS. But you have to put your faith in them and be patient, because as I said the updates don't happen every other day. On the sports front, my son is always excited to play all the fun games.....the emphasis on team spirit, building stamina and developing the basic skills to play any sport like balancing, agility, sharpening reflexes. So when I enrolled my son for lawn tennis or basketball, I could see the results. Also my son loves the sport facilitators, and from his feedback they actively spend the entire time with them, rather than standing in one corner and watching them play.
Most of all, I remember when I first entered the premises, I found the environment welcoming, the smiles seemed genuine....
Most of the facilitators I have interacted with are very warm , and so patient ....in fact sometimes i feel they are more patient then me !!
Dr. Nidhi Gogia Mother of Soham Sharma Grade-2
MatriKiran is a 'concept' which completely believes in contemporary learning without compromising the values which needs to be inculcated in a student. It ensures individual attention to every child in the class and teaches in so many unique ways that my child is able to learn and appreciate the basic concepts by understanding it rather by rote!
By incorporating new ideas in every day routine, learning in MatriKiran to me is comprehensive without losing the element of fun. With a seamless blend of playing and learning my son never wants to miss going to his school!
I am now looking forward to send my second child to this school.
Anuradha Harish Mother of Aaryan Simha Grade-3
MatriKiran has been a journey with us as parents where we have grown with the school every single day. Our philosophy about education aligns with that of MatriKiran where the focus is to keep things simple and closer to our roots yet meaningful and full of learning. The school has contributed to the needs of every single child since inception and thus believes in quality not quantity. As stakeholders we wish to take MatriKiran to greater heights to cater to the growing needs in education.
Mansi & Chandan Sand Parents of Jayati Sand Grade-4
At MatriKiran love, joy, knowledge, and skill work together to bring forth a whole person.
Shivani Gulati Mother of Sara Gulati Grade-4
We speak as very satisfied parents of MatriKiran. We have found a beautiful balance of academics and overall development of a child's personality in MatriKiran. It is a school that gives a lot of exposure to the children yet keeps them very grounded, which is so important in today's world where in our race for success, we forget to be good human beings. The integral approach taken by the school for academics is very commendable and you can see it being carried forward to higher grades like grade 3 were our son studies right now. All in all an excellent school with dedicated staff and a very able leader to guide them right through…..
Vimi & Asheem Rath Parents of Ashvin Rath Grade-4
MatriKiran has a fresh new approach in imparting knowledge to children. It is adopting a creative way of ensuring the holistic development of children. Every day in school for my daughter comprises a unique mix of curricular and extra-curricular activities which makes each day a wonderful learning experience. My child is happy at MatriKiran and that is what matters the most to me. Hope the school continues to adhere to this innovative approach in helping children grow up beautifully. We wish MatriKiran all the best in its future endeavours!
Anirban & Amrita Chatterjee Parents of Abhidi Chatterjee Grade-4
We are one of the many happy parents of MatriKiran for sure. We are very glad that we decided to admit our both sons to MatriKiran School. MatriKiran is a special institution which has given our kids freedom to express themselves without any hesitation, to do what they like to do, to learn and apply not just to memorize.
The whole Eco system is very soothing and kids prefer to be at school vs staying at home even when they are not well. Principal madam, teachers, all supporting staff are responsible and care about our kids like their own.
Gagandeep Singh and Manpreet Bajaj Parents of Harshmeet Singh and Armaandeep Singh Grade-4 & Grade-6
My children have been a part of the MatriKiran family from its nascent stage. However when we first saw the new campus it felt so complete. It felt like an extension of the junior school and the atmosphere was fresh, positive and nurturing.
The facilities at MKHS are modern yet traditional. It lends itself to the holistic development of the child.
The personal interaction and involvement of all the facilitators enhances the quality of education here.
I would recommend MKHS as an essential part of your child's growing years."
Upasana Mahtani Luthra Mother of Nanak Luthra and Nritu Luthra Grade-5 & Grade-7

Our son Ronit Wasan has been in your school since class 3rd and now he is in Grade 6. He loves going to school and has never lost the daily morning excitement to catch the school bus. This means he is very happy and comfortable in the school atmosphere which is a great feeling for any parent as we are rest assured that our kid is in safe hands.
MatriKiran is a great institution and a place of learning and the credit goes to the higher management to keep the standards and ethics of a good school.
Harjeet Wasan Father of Ronit Wasan Grade-7
MatriKiran school focuses on overall development of their students. Along with Good infrastructure & latest lab equipment, the environment is clean and green. The students are encouraged to be well disciplined & demonstrate the taught topics by self as a facilitator. Totally concept build up education by using illustration methodology. I am happy and satisfied that my child's future is in secure hand. I would like to thank you for providing an overall development to my child.
Sanjay Kumar Father of Tanish Gupta Grade-7
MatriKiran High School is a boon for those parents who want to make their children smart and confident young adults ready to face the challenges in life. While adhering to Sri Aurobindo's ideology of how children should be groomed, the school continuously strives to incorporate the best of the educational innovation from Western models. The school lays stress on health and physical fitness of its students while giving them sound academic development.
This is the fourth year for my daughter in this school and the positive changes that have come in her personality is a testimony to the competence of MatriKiran High School.
Ruma Nagpal Mother of Mehek Nagpal Grade-7
This is the best School for my children's. It was an easy decision because it is the best school in Gurgaon. The school has innovative and caring teachers which is important to us. MatriKiran offers high standards of education across a broad range of subjects. Small class sizes mean my children's are learning at a phenomenal rate.
Rakesh Pawar Father of Riya Pawar Grade-8
After coming back from Scotland in 2011 we were struggling with our 8 year old daughter Mili's ( now 12 years) school admission in Gurgaon. We visited a school who took her test and Mili was looking at papers with repulsive face. School suggested us to enroll her in class which she already passed. We were not happy the way her academic performance was getting assessed. While doing random google we found MaitriKiran.
In our first meeting Principal gave a drawing sheet to Mili and made it clear that she want to know us; parents than knowing child.
In last 5 years school has dealt with all child related issues involving us. School has also called us on few occasions to have special meeting if there are issues. In any of our meeting, it was never a blame, but the approach was trying to understand our parenting.
There were occasions because of our busy schedule and both parents travelling, we thought of sending our daughter to boarding school. But my daughter Mili absolutely rejected any idea of changing school. She loves MatriKiran .First time in life she is in a school that she love school days than her holidays.
MatriKiran has taught my daughter value of inclusion & cooperation. She has developed special bonding with her facilitators. School has made her very expressive & confident child.
Ajatshatru & Jyoti Sharma Parents of Aalokini Mili Grade-8
School is excellent in academic, my daughter feeling comfort in the school. School is providing education in a practical way rather than theory.
The last event dated 23.07.2016 was very good even parents also learned something new from the event and the faculty of the school also very experienced & knowledgeable and give their best to the students.
Overall feedback is satisfactory
Balwinder Sharma Father of Harshita Sharma Grade-8
