WHY INDUS WORLD SCHOOL / Value for Money
Value For Money
Indus World School fee is at least 20% lower as compared the fee to any other school in similar location with similar infrastructure and facilities. We are able to achieve lower fee due to the following reasons:
- Higher Teacher Utilization
- We aim to have a higher teacher utilisation
- Our staff works harder than their peers in most other schools.
- We use technology and professional development to equip our teachers become efficient.
- Smarter Planning
- We use smart planning and cross utilisation of resources for getting more out of less.
- While planning any activity, we take cost of the activity in mind and carry out a detailed cost benefit analysis.
- Innovation in Cost Control
- We have deployed a number of measures to control costs of services, consumables and other costs to achieve lower cost for the school.
- Being cost conscious for us is a way of life. We aim to lower the cost of every transaction and pass on the benefit of lower costs in the form of lower fees.
- Centre of Excellence - Academic Planning & Assessment
- At Indus, Academic Planning is done centrally and hence the cost of planning is lower as compared to a stand-alone school.
- Similarly, unlike Indus World School, most private schools either spend a lot of time on assessment or compromise on quality of assessment. Due to the Centre of Excellence at Indus, assessments are of high quality and low cost.
- Higher Number of Working Days/Year
- Most schools have 190 working days/year to 215 working days/year.
- At Indus World School, we strive to have more than 225 working days/year, at least 10% more than the average of other similar schools.
- Lower Land and Building Burden
- Most private schools are forced to charge higher fee as their real estate (land and building) costs are extremely high.
- At Indus, we believe that the real estate returns can come over a very long period of time if we have to provide value for money.
- Our land and building costs are lower and hence we are able to pass on the benefits to the parents in terms of lower fee.
- Shared Resources
- Indus World School being a national chain, there are a lot of resources that we use across locations.
- With shared resources, the cost of running the school comes down.
- Centralized Shared Services - HR, Recruitments, Training, F&A
- At Indus World School, we have HR (employee engagement, payroll etc.), recruitments, professional development and Finance and Accounts centralise.
- This helps each school in being fully focussed on ‘Academics First’ and ‘Student-at-the-Centre’ instead of getting bogged in routine administrative work and yet retain the benefit of a high quality support system.
