About Baroda Public School-Por
Education is a sharp tool for self-realization of an individual. A soul-searching mechanism is automatically generated in the mind of a person, who has gained proper education. However, the process of gaining education is a never ending activity. Evolution of mind, through education naturally “ignites” the soul and the “sparks” from it , will help the person to become a pilgrim in “search of truth”.
A holistic approach in this field helps in the overall development of students, which will enable them to contribute towards the formation of a bright career, which in turn will lay foundation for a constructive nation building.
Welcome to Baroda Public School-Por
Here comes the important role of schools and educators. Appropriate ambience for education in schools and proper training and guidance by the educators can easily achieve the goal of generating “sparks” in young minds. A holistic approach in this field helps in the overall development of students, which will enable them to contribute towards the formation of a bright career, which in turn will lay foundation for a constructive nation building. The Father of our Nation has rightly said, “The heartbeat of India lies in the rural population and to understand India, it is better to understand the rural sector of India”. Like whatever aspirations, the urban population possesses, the same aspirations can be observed among the rural population also. But opportunities are limited to fulfill their dreams and aspirations. So it is the primary duty of every fortunate citizen, i.e. those who are fortunate enough to fulfill their dreams and aspirations, to contribute, in whatever little way possible, to raise the standard of living of the rural population. Education plays an important role as far as the quality of life is concerned. With this objective in mind, a group of academicians joined hands, under the banner of a trust named, “St. Stephen’s Foundation Trust”, Vadodara, to take up the MISSION of serving the rural masses by providing true education through the medium of English with NCERT curriculum prescribed by CBSE, Delhi. This School was established in the year 2006 with a motto of “Leadership, Teaching & Service”. During this short span of service in the field of education in the rural sector of Gujarat, the school could achieve excellence in various fields like academics, sports & games, awareness of hygiene, awareness in nutritious food habits, awareness of exercise for a healthy body and a sound mind etc. In academic field students have excelled, achieving 100% success with 100% distinctions in CBSE exams, since the inception of Class X in the school.

Under “Beti Padao Abhiyan” and “Rural Girl Empowerment Scheme” our school has taken the initiative to spread awareness among the rural families, to send their daughters to school for better education and in turn for a dignified life in future.
