According to Amma’s teachers, She was the brightest girl in Her class and never failed to flawlessly memorize a lesson. Amma says it was easy for Her to do so because She only had to read things once to know them by heart.
However, when Amma was only in the fourth standard, Her mother became ill, and She had to leave school in order to take care of all the household chores. From then on, it was Amma who made sure all Her brothers and sisters went to school on time and that each day they properly completed their lessons.
Majority of the Amrita Vidyalayams across India follow the CBSE pattern. 34 of them are affiliated to CBSE out of which 27 are senior secondary schools upto plus two level.
A healthy body promotes a healthy mind. Amrita Vidyalayams encourage children to be healthy in both body and mind.
