Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902), the great founder of the worldwide Ramakrishna Mission, used to say that education is the panacea of all social evils. But by education he did not mean merely book learning. He said, “We must have life-building, man-making, character-making, assimilation of ideas.” And added, “What we want is that education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which one can stand on one’s own feet.” It was his conviction that only through the right type of education, individuals can be transformed. It is by imparting man-making and character-building education, an individual becomes a complete man, a responsible citizen, which is the pressing need of today’s society.
This is the ideal of education which we try to put into effect at Ramakrishna Mission School, Uripok.
The School, therefore, endeavors to educate the students, in its charge, according to the best traditions of the country, while instructing them in modern arts, science, and crafts, etc. Students are encouraged and helped to grow in all directions – physically, mentally, intellectually, and morally. As it grooms the students in academics, it also tries to attend to their all-round growth and development so that they become strong and healthy citizens of the country rooted in sound moral principles, learn to respect the higher values of life, and become aware of their obligation towards the society and its citizens.
