PPES: In Hindi, Pardada Pardadi means “great-grandparents.” An integral part of ancient Indian wisdom revolves around family; the value-based knowledge and education a child receives from an invested community is a crucial component of her successful transformation into an adult. With that in mind, the school chose this name because it goes beyond basic education; it teaches girls the values and principles that will help them blossom into more well-rounded individuals in adulthood, much as great-grandparents teach their grandchildren how to be moral and contributing members of society.
