Pathways group of Schools has become the first and only chain of schools in the world to be conferred with the highest accolade for Environmentally-Responsible Design with the Platinum certification for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings (LEED-EB) by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). The USGBC is a prestigious non-profit organization that promotes sustainable building design and construction in the world through its leadership of the World Green Building Council. All three Pathways Schools (Aravali, Gurgaon & Noida) have now earned the LEED-EB Platinum rating.


The series of these prestigious achievements started back in 2014 with Pathways School Gurgaon being recognized as the Highest Rated Green Building (Educational) on the planet with its LEED-EB Platinum rating. This was followed by Pathways School Noida receiving the same certification in 2015 and now Pathways World School Aravali in 2016.


At a time when environmental protection is an increasingly pressing issue all over the world, LEED through its green building certification program recognizes best-in-class building strategies and practices.


On receiving this certification Director of Pathways group of Schools, Mr Prashant Jain, said, “We at Pathways truly believe in an environmentally friendly world and have hence built all our schools as Green Buildings. Spending most of their active time in school these young children are sensitized to be one with nature. We take pride of being the first and only school chain in the world having all the campuses rated LEED Platinum by United States Green Building Council.”


Among all the educational facilities worldwide who have achieved this top distinction which includes another High School and a small number of Universities, Pathways Schools are the highest rated.

CAS trip to Auroville

Majda Jabeen Fatima, Grade 12 Student at Pathways Noida shares her interesting journey of teaching as well as learning during her CAS activity program.

I have very fond memories of my amazing trip to Auroville. It was indeed a lifetime experience with great learnings. The most interesting aspect of the trip was the excellent cross-cultural interaction with the local rural peers as well as with the Turkish co-participants. Both the cultures were equally new to me.


It has always been my passion to teach young school kids and the 12-hours of teaching at the school in the village Edayanchavdhi, in Auroville, was very interesting. The language barrier never bothered me. I was surprised to see the discipline, enthusiasm to learn and some great talents in these young children. I found the aspirations of these children no different from the children of Sai Bal Sansar School in Noida, whom I teach during my CAS service lessons.


Some of the other highlights of the trip were the full moon walk in the forest. It was a very different experience with a mix of fear and quest for exploring something new. The forest was exceptionally quite, which according to our guide was not normal. The musical therapy was again a first time experience and was very relaxing and refreshing. It was also good to learn about the cross-cultural experiments that are being conducted in Auroville. Lastly, I managed to make some very good cross-border friends from Turkey with lot of exchanges about the Turkish culture.


The arrangements of logistics by MindVisa was very good. There was never any lack of coordination and the hotel and food arrangements were great. The variation in the cuisines was also in line with the overall cross-cultural experiences during the trip.


Overall, I would rate my trip experience as an outstanding one with great cross-cultural learning and renewed feeling of responsibility towards the underprivileged and the community as a whole.
