Kotak Salesian School, Visakhapatnam Review
Kotak Salesian School is one of the priority schools in Visakhapatnam. It is one of the missionary schools of Saint Francis de Sales. It is known for the quality education and discipline it imparts to all its students. Located in Chinna Waltair, it has 2 campuses, each facing the other. It also has a church in one of its campuses.
The school is divided into 2 campuses, one for primary school and the other for middle school and high school. The primary school campus consists of a church apart from the school building where regular prayers are organized. It also has a good playground for children. The middle school and high school campus is the largest campus with 4 buildings, two for middle school, one for high school and the fourth one is for Science Laboratory. This also has a football field, a basketball court and a huge dias where daily prayers are offered. There is a canteen to quench the thirst of students and to give them some snacks during the break time. Unfortunately, there are no hostel facilities available. The school doesnt provide any transport facilities to the students. They are expected to arrive to the school all by themselves. But parking facilities are available for the cycles. Motor bikes are strictly not allowed.
The school is managed by SFS missionaries. They are very particular about the language that is spoken in the school, i.e, english. Other languages are not to be spoken in the campus for which there are various punishments. The school starts from 9:00AM and goes on till 3:45PM. There are 2 breaks apart from a 1 hour lunch break. Every year all the festivals are grandly celebrated in the school. Most importantly the Teachers day where senior students take the responsibility of teaching their juniors.
The students are divided amongst 4 houses. The Red, Blue, Green and Yellow. These compete with each other inorder to win the overall performance. This school is known for the basketball team. It trains its students for basketball right from seventh class onwards.
The quality of education is given the highest priority. The teachers are all atleast B.Sc degree qualified and hence impart very good knowledge to the students. Many of the alumini of these schools have settled abroad or are studying in top engineering and medical colleges in India. Every year, the school organizes picnic tours to relieve the stress of academics.
Kotak Salesian school is therefore one of the best schools in Visakhapatnam. It is an awesome place to develop the overall personality of an individual right from childhood.
