Mindspark:

To aid learning through understanding and that the education lasts for a lifetime as a tool to help them in all their endeavors, VES has introduced an interactive study program called Mindspark, an initiative by the EI (Educational Initiatives) group .

Mindspark is a computer-based adaptive learning system which primarily uses questions to help children learn. The questions are ‘finely-graded’ which helps students learn Maths by employing a constructivist theory of learning by answering questions that are appropriate to their current understanding.

Questions are specially designed to test understanding and to help students clear misconceptions.

Abacus

Abacus is considered the most effective way to initiate math for young children and sharpen math skills.

Learning abacus provides stimulations that are socially responsive and intellectually congruent for the growth of brain cells.

It promotes multisensory integration and also helps in academic performance of students by elevating memory and attention span. The school facilitates abacus programs after school hours for interested students.

The abacus program enables students comprehend and establish strong mind math skills.
