I studied in a private English-medium co-ed School in Dhar wad, Karnataka from Kindergarten to the 10th standard. As I moved to eighth standard, A and B sections were combined to form one section. Therefore, the teacher-pupil ratio our Class became 1:56. Our School started in a decades-old girls' Kannada-medium high school building. I remember moving to our own school building in the same campus in the 8th Standard. Two combinations were available to the eighth standard students and those, who chose Sanskrit as the first language would have English as the second language and Kannada as the third language. The students who chose English as the first language, would have Kannada as the second language and Hindi as the third language. For all the other subjects namely Mathematics, Science and Social Studies, we would sit together in one class. Our school had several factors conducive for education such as sufficient number of teachers, well-ventilated classrooms, a big playground, open spaces, toilets and drinking water facility. Our school was also close to home and the fees were affordable
