The DORD School is located on the golden silicon soil of Daudnagar along the eastern bank of Sonbhadra River. The campus looks clean and green with fear-free learning environment. The medium of instructions are in four languages; English, Hindi, Sanskrit & Urdu. The DORD School Faculty comprises of a team of highly professional and experienced teachers with great expertise. The faculty was carefully selected to embark on this unique educational endeavor because of their strong commitment to raising educational standards within marginalized communities.
The DORD School was initiated by the special award grant funded by Hewlett Packard (HP), The Indian Council for Integral Education (I.C.I.E) and the Education Innovation Fund for India (E.I.F.I). The initial objective was to provide free & quality education to the deprived & poor Muslim girls but the DORD management has extended free & sponsored education facilities to selected students from other deprived sections too. The sustainability of the initiative has been assured by other community students, who are paying nominal fees. In the current session, the total number of students has increased to about 300 out of which 87 are free & sponsored Muslim girls from poor section of society.
DORD School believes in the philosophy that education should unfold the latent talents and academic abilities of all students in a progressive manner. This can be accomplished by giving students a vision of their immense conscious potential. Such a vision of possibilities will inspire and maintain feelings of progress which, invariably leads to greater comprehension and scholastic success.
