MLZS Amritsar becomes the 8th Mount Litera Zee School in Punjab

With a view to strengthen its educational presence in the Punjab market, Mount Litera Zee School, India's fastest growing chain of K-12 schools launched its 8th branch in the state.

It boasts of a state of the art campus which houses a professional size football field, twin tennis courts, a huge open air auditorium, a music and dance room and 2 well-endowed libraries for the junior and senior students. Besides the world class infrastructure, the school has also partnered with star brand names such as Mahesh Bhupati's Tennis Academy for Tennis, Ace Bollywood Dance Shiamak Davar for Dance, UK based football team Arsenal for soccer coaching and Oxford Reading Program for their technology oriented reading program.

For the past couple of years, the Mount Litera brand has been steadily expanding its presence in the Punjab and Haryana Market as there is a demand from the market for a good educational institute. The market has also shown a positive response with enrolment numbers across all the schools growing 20-25% YOY.The launch at Amritsar is the first among 10 launches stated to happen across the country during the months of December and January. The new schools are slated to open in Bihar, Tamil Nadu and Pune, Maharashtra.

"As per the 2011 census , there are around 40 lakh children in the age group of 0-6 in the state of Punjab with 5 lakh in Amritsar itself.  Moreover, a bulk of this population looks at higher education opportunities abroad post their schooling. Staying updated and competitive while seamlessly integrating into the global curriculum requires an educational institution that is forward looking, holistic development oriented, conceptually solid and culturally rooted to the local society. We want to be that institution for the children of this city and with Mr. and Mr/.s Dhillon, we have found the right partners who embody this philosophy whole heartedly. Together, we are sure that we would achieve our goal of delivering good quality child centric education to every child of the city. We look forward to work with you and the people of this city to make Mount Litera Zee School, Amritsar a beacon of excellence for the children of Punjab.” said Mr. K.V.S.Seshasai, CEO of Zee Learn Limited.

The key differentiator for Mount Litera Zee Schools across the country is its unique pedagogy, the 'Litera Octave" which ensures that every child learns the way they want to learn. This ensures that the child not only becomes academically smart but also discovers and develops their inherent potential. To ensure that the pedagogy is delivered right, MLZS teachers undergo 60 hours of mandatory training and classroom observations. This ensures that teachers move away from the usual chalk and talk method and learn to effectively blend technology with the curriculum.
