The Student of Prashant Public High School are taught to always “Look up”, i.e. to look up to God for help, strength and reassurance in toils, trails, temptation and troubles. “Lift up” means that every PPHSINS, be it students or teachers, have to set for themselves high standards, goals and aspirations in every sphere of life.
The School is a place where children are encouraged to say “I see it, I get it, I can do it.”
Our philosophy of education has always been meeting the needs of the individual child. Children acquire skills and knowledge easily if we can make the surrounding stimulating and purposeful. In the 21st century, the Digital Revolution affects us all. Quite simply, it is changing everything: a brilliant barrage of information, entertainment, companionship and education is speedily available. In such a surrounding when work and effort is valued, the child’s self-esteem is heightened, and from this results self-motivation. We try to understand and work with each child, and we firmly believe that it is our responsibility to enable the child in our care to develop as a whole.
In this era of cut throat competition, it is of paramount importance to impart an integrated education to the future citizens of the Nation for successfully facing multitasking. The Prashant Public High School, therefore, lay special emphasis on both co-curricular and extra-curricular activities providing students an edge over others to be a leader in their respective field of activity. The wheel would also be a true reflection of all these diverse achievements and progresses made and being made by the school in fulfilling the coveted goal of imparting disciplined and quality education.
Our goal at PPHS is to provide an enriching, engaging, and challenging curriculum that will prepare students for success while at PPHS and for the years that follow. We believe that students, parents and teachers all play a vital role in helping students reach their greatest potential. Parents are encouraged to check their progress regularly on our parent portal, which can be accessed via our school website. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the many resources available to them- their teachers, the library, the computer labs, and the smart classes.
To channelize the creative aspect of the child the school has come up with the school magazine. This is not just a means for a school to communicate its thought but it also highlights the success and achievement of its pursuits. It gives an insight to ones thought and creativity through varied expressions. Our children have been able to leave their imprint in the path they have walked till now and the school has carved a niche of its own in the educational hub.
The school where the quality matters the most we have tried to reflect the kaleidoscope of learning, adventures, creativities and positive approach of our young minds through writing and drawings. I hope this effort of our minds will serve as a stepping stone towards the many miles stones we have to cover in pursuit of excellence.

Prashant Public High School is a Dream school! It is trying to translate a dream and an ideal into reality. The dream is of a resurgent India, which can bring back the glory of ancient India, where material, intellectual and spiritual advancement went hand–in-hand .The India of Buddha and Shankaracharya, Vardhamana and Guru Nanak.The India of Askoka, Chanakya, Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi. But where are we now? We are a nation of 850 million struggling for existence. Many are very pessimistic about a revival for India. I beg to differ from them! India can have a glorious future if only we find out all that is good in our past and put into practice at least one idea of any one of those eminent men of ours. This is one of the things Vivekananda said among hundreds of things, “ Take up an idea, think of it, dream of it, let all your veins, brains and muscles be full with that idea and just forget all other ideas; success will be yours!“ Let me say, our future is assured. Yes, a glorious future is assured, if we have the will to do it!
Prashant Public High School has already achieved high standards in academics and we are proud of it and are thankful to God Almighty. We are aiming at much more to achieve – totality of all round education. We realise India’s future is being moulded in India’s classrooms. And we are trying to create excellence in our classrooms.
Every boy and girl has to show his or her excellence in the classrooms, activity rooms or play grounds. For this we offer a lot of curricular activities. Every year we add more facilities.
We teach the “May I help you?” attitude or “What can I do for you?” attitude in life. We do take a lot of care to inject and instill virtues. With these qualities, in them and the latest educational technology at hand, in computers or any branch of science they study, we are sure our children can excel anywhere in the world. We expect our children to “Spread the Light”, which is our motto. The Indian Prayer “Thamaso Ma Jyotirgamaya“ may be interpreted to mean the same. We are pledged to produce the best out-going students among Udhampur Schools. We want them to excel in whichever vocation they choose and to become truly useful citizens and good human beings. We want some of them to take leading roles in the country to bring back its ancient glory.
