The Jain Schools

In the Jain Schools, students are taught the basic principles of Jainism. They are also taught to study the Jain granthas (scriptures). These schools are generally situated where Jain families live in large numbers. The teachers chosen and appointed in these schools always teach not only children but also elderly people to study the Jain scriptures. In these schools, an attempt is made to develop the innate potentialities of children and to bring about a harmonious development of their personalities. In some Jain schools situated in some cities arrangements are made to teach Sanskrit and Prakrit to students. Even Sadhus and Sadhvijis can study there. Some cultural activities are also organized for children in these schools known as Pathshalas.
