In early 2013, the children of Aruna's Orphanage transferred schools and started at the Emile Academy. We are so happy to see how the children are improving in this amazing environment. The Emile Academy uses the Montessori method of teaching, and focuses on different talents and strengths of each child. There is also an wonderful student-run greenhouse and garden that provides much of the produce used for the hot lunch program. The strong academics helped the school place in the first division of the Nepal Excellence Examination last year. After the first-term results, many of our children are showing great improvements in their grades and we expect that trend to continue.
