Career Guidance:

We believe that while a child is in school, a teacher is expected to act as a substitute parent with all the normal forms of parental discipline open to them. We look into how a child develops the inner strength and character that endows his life with order and coherence. We try to build an independent man appropriate to a free republic of coequal citizens, capable of making decisions within a rational, self-consistent framework - a person treating and being treated with respect. Career guidance is imparted in each of the child to assist them in their choice of subject. Our Career guide also offers advice on course options after school. Team spirit and the desire to give the best performance possible are our watchwords. Glenhill Public School is a full fledged institution imparting the best possible education and all other related activities in building a nice career for each student. The new millennium has brought about a revolution in terms of career options. Guidance and counseling services are given utmost priority.
