The Green Acres Academy Educating Students for Life


Mumbai 26th September, 2016 (GPN) : Parents are now keen on providing their child with a holistic education. The Green Acres Academy, is a school that provides a nurturing ground for responsible and sensitive citizens of tomorrow.

The Green Acres Academy (TGAA) is a proposed ICSE school established in 2011 with over 1150 students from Playgroup to Class 5. The school already has a sprawling campus at Chembur and has started a new branch at Mulund last year for pre-primary classes.

The Green Acres Academy focuses on ‘Play+Learn+Grow’ method of learning for their Pre-Primary section that results in students developing confidence & discipline, becoming more independent and also fosters their individuality. The Pre-Primary curriculum focuses on the 5 areas of developmental domain with cognitive development which includes language and mathematic, thematic development, personal, social and emotional (PSE) development, physical development (fine and gross motor) and Creative Development.  Pre-primary programs are taught through several diverse mediums including interactive smart boards, music, dance, play enactments, trips and other fun activities. 

At the Primary level, The Green Acres Academy (TGAA) breaks the tradition of rote learning and focus on imparting contemporary holistic education, through their 8:4:8 (TM) method. At this age when the blooming minds of the children are full of wonder, curiosity and inquisitiveness, they are provided with the superb platform to establish a useful relationship between the curricular and extra-curricular activities. The school curriculum includes exposure to areas like sports & wellness, music & dance, drama and speech as well as reading & creative writing. In the classrooms they learn to think, and participate in activities to learn academic subjects where in teachers adopt the 5A cycle of teaching i.e. “Aim, Action, Analysis, Application and Assessment”.

The Green Acres Academy actively invests in their teachers. Teachers play the all-important role of fulfilling the vision that TGAA has set out to achieve. A closed circle meeting with teaching group to discuss problems faced and solutions; meetings with academic advisors; customized academic training modules; child psychology and developmental psychology workshops – are techniques through which a teacher helps ensure all-round development of a student at TGAA. Every student’s development is carefully monitored.

At the helm of affairs at Green Acres Academy is Ms. Manju Mehta, the driving force and Principal of the school. With over 30 years of rich experience Ms. Mehta has been driving The Green Acres Academy towards its goal of excellence. And the proof that we are on the right path is that Ms. Manju Mehta was recently ranked as one of the 100 Most Influential Principals of Indian Schools by the World Education Congress on 24th June 2016.

TGAA’s Chembur campus has been adjudged winner for Architecture by ‘Artists in Concrete Awards” (AICA) Asia Fest 2015-16. One of the key deciding factors was the school’s environmentally conscious design and focus on energy conservation. The school building has been developed along the lines of environmental design that will work with and save natural resources.
