Vision / Mission:

Our mission is to foster a transformative educational journey that empowers students to excel academically, thrive personally, and contribute meaningfully to society. We do this by cultivating a dynamic learning environment that embraces progressive educational principles, whole child development, and the pursuit of academic excellence.  Our aim is to empower students with the values of inquiry, knowledge, care, critical thinking and intercultural understanding, ensuring they are globally and locally prepared to contribute positively to a better world. 

Fishtail Academy is dedicated to cultivating an atmosphere of inspiration, empowerment, and lifelong learning. We aspire to create an educational environment that not only produces outstanding academic achievers but also well-rounded individuals who are prepared and willing to make meaningful contributions to society.


Our Values :


We cultivate courage in students, giving them the confidence to be themselves and a push for them to take the leap of faith. Encouraging the students, we make them brave enough to stand up for themselves


Academic integrity gives the students and faculty, the flexibility to think outside the box, gather knowledge and create innovative work while also appreciating and acknowledging the efforts of the others.


Respect, as a key value in schools, strengthens the school's overall culture and, as a result, contributes to more individual success as students feel safe and secure in their surroundings. As a result, we create an environment conducive to the growth of respect and learning.


We represent and advocate for our community, putting students' and the general public's needs and interests first. We set fair goals and provide a favorable learning atmosphere for the students in five dimensions of their growth; moral, academic, physical, social, and creative, and help them grow into rational adults.


Better bonding with teachers and administrators can significantly boost the confidence of the students and encourage them to learn more. We form strong relationships with students for more academic engagement, better social skills, and good behavior.


Students who develop resiliency are more capable of dealing with disappointments, learning from failure, coping with setbacks, and adapting to change. We polish children's drive, tenacity, and perseverance in dealing with problems and coping with the difficulties and life.


We help the learners stay focused on their studies through a disciplined system. This trains children to focus in different ways throughout time. As a result, students can concentrate on their objectives and prioritize their work.


An open mind allows youngsters to learn how people from all over the world interact despite their differences. Open-mindedness sees opportunities to reconsider beliefs, uncover false information, and examine alternate options when making decisions. As educators, we foster an open-minded climate in which pupils can think critically.
