Miss Reynolds' KV School - Infrastructure & Land
The school is laid out on a beautiful piece of land. It is like being in a modified jungle. When we first drove up, I saw wild monkeys, dogs, cows, squirrels, and a peacock ran across our path, which is a sign of good luck. It is very green and the students take great pride in their gardens and natural ways to preserve the environment. I was very impressed with how the students could articulate their involvement in keeping the campus "alive."
They playground equipment needs to be updated, but the students, and Miss Reynolds, has a positive attitude about getting outside and being active. It was wonderful to see students playing together from all different ages.
This community of learners is very proud of their hands-on projects and they post bulletin boards to show their students' work. We were fortunate enough to have students give us a tour and present their work to us. This was a valuable activity because the students were sharing pieces they were proud of and practicing their English simultaneously.
The environment is very different from ours, so it was almost surreal being on campus with the students.
