are two lasting bequests we can give our children:
One is roots. The other is wings." —Hodding

A wise person once described a school as a building that has four walls…with tomorrow inside. The focus of education at The Brigade School @ J. P. Nagar embodies this idea—by giving its students the strong roots they need to soar successfully into the future.
A co-educational institution, affiliated to the CBSE Board, The Brigade School @ J. P. Nagar has over 1100 students, across Nursery to Standard 12 levels.
Located in J.P. Nagar, The Brigade School @ J. P. Nagar began its first academic year in 2004. Young in years and spirit, yet rich in academic experience, the school has already earned the reputation of being an institution of excellence. The results speak for themselves: all the batches that have graduated from Std 10 and Std 12 have achieved 100% first class results.
The school is managed by the Brigade Foundation.

We believe that:
child is a unique individual who possesses inherent potential
of different types. Our objective is to identify,
tap and develop this
potential. To do so, we have to ensure that the child
not only learns well, but also learns happily and, in the process,
develops into a confident,
complete person. Our philosophy is realised through the
attention we extend to each child and our encouragement
of open lines of communication
between students and faculty.
- Our students should have
firm roots in our land, our culture, our language
and our ethos. At the same time, we want our students to develop
a world-view and become universal citizens who
are aware of, and at ease with, other cultures, religions, viewpoints
- Education involves far more than the acquisition
of knowledge. The real achievement of education is teaching students
to enjoy the process of learning and to apply all that they learn
to real life situations.
- Cocurricular activities and a collaborative
learning and working culture are as important as academics.
Our school motto and logo are an extension of our philosophy:
let the spirit fly, let the mind soar into new horizons…
O nanna chetana, aagu nee aniketana
O my spirit, transcend all boundaries
Our school motto is taken from the first line of the poem Aniketana, written
by Karnataka's poet laureate Kuvempu in 1956.
In this poem, Kuvempu seeks to break out of the narrow confines of home,
religion and country, and to reach for the eternal and the universal.
|A household name wherever Kannada is read and spoken, Kupalli Venkatappa Puttappa
(K.V. Puttappa, 1904-1994) is revered as one of the great Kannada
poets of the 20th century. He has written over 70 books, including
poetry, novels, essays and plays.
Kuvempu believed in “manuja mata, vishva patha” (mankind's
religion is the universal path of all people), a philosophy reflected in several
of his poems and essays.
