Message from the Founders of Brilliant Stars English Medium SchoolBrilliant Stars English Medium School (BSEMS) is an endeavor inspired by the teachings of the Bahá'í Faith - which exhorts its followers to serve mankind with the purpose of bringing about socio-economic equality, material and spiritual prosperity, justice and unity in the world.
At BSEMS, our goal is to empower students to become torch bearers who will lead tomorrow´s society into a future characterized by socio-economic prosperity and equality. We believe that good behavior and high moral character must come first, for unless the character be trained, acquiring knowledge will only prove injurious. Knowledge is praiseworthy only when it is coupled with ethical conduct, virtuous character, and a desire to serve mankind. Hence, our efforts are geared towards developing and implementing a model of education which lays a strong emphasis on moral development and social action.
Brilliant Stars English Medium School is a first-of-its-kind effort in Northeastern India, and we believe that we will accomplish our ambitious mission and vision with the help of our trained teachers, innovative curriculum and progressive educational tools, constant guidance from international educational experts, and of course, the parents.
