During my days of childhood, opportunities were far less as they are today. The children are fortunate that there are ample prospects of growth. Our duty as a school is to ensure that the students achieve the zenith of their success with all the values intact. We emphasize that success will be cherished if it is achieved by proper means and that is why we value ‘VALUES’ at Lexicon.
Education and learning is a continuous life long process. There is no age limit for learning, the moment learning stops, growth stops. We are striving to make our students understand the importance of being lifelong learners. I believe that the basic education given to the students at Lexicon will also teach them the importance of humility and they will remember this even when they become successful leaders tomorrow.
‘Believe in yourself’ is the motto of the school. These are three simple words but there is immense depth in these words. There is nothing that can stop the growth of Lexiconites. The students of Lexicon would display knowledge and wisdom in the times to come. The motto ‘Believe in yourself’ would be the mantra of success and when the student would come back - owing his success to school, and when he would narrate his days of school with a smile on his face and a glitter in his eyes, that is when I would feel that the school has played an important role in a student’s life.
Dr. Monisha Sharma, the Director of the Lexicon Group of Schools is a charming, unassuming, and soft spoken visionary. Her penchant to attain new milestones in education and her innate love and affection for the student community has made her push herself to explore new academic adventures within a short span of less than a decade. At the helm of three CBSE High schools, Prof. Monisha Sharma is a B.Tech, MBA,Ph.D and an approved Prof. from University of Pune. She has a keen eye for the latest technological innovations and strives hard to get them functional in our educational setup. Her far sighted academic vision has helped The Lexicon Schools to come up with unique concepts such as Jolly Phonics in Pre-Primary and Class I. Caterpillar to Butterfly or C2Bs, as they are popularly known, is again the brainchild of our dear Director through which she has envisioned of providing every student the opportunity to hold a mike and display his/her innate talents. This activity, from classes L.K.G. – V is hugely popular with our patrons too. Her desire to get the benefits of scientific innovations in education has helped us to come up with the innovative projects in secondary classes from VI – X wherein students work in groups on given topics and display path breaking ideas and inventions.
She strongly believes that, “quest to explore, thirst to experiment and self belief are the traits every achiever on this planet has shown! These are the traits we want to develop in our students along with values. We feel that with an onslaught of technology, it is more important now than ever to make our students not only understand but respect family and relations! Our endeavour is and will always be to equip our students with all the skills needed to make them a complete person, professionally and personally; wanting to learn, grow, excel and innovate while being sensitive to the needs of fellow beings and environment.’’

Her message to the students of today is that, "Nothing stands in front of a willing heart and strong determination. Have a goal in mind, for goals give direction, purpose and meaning to life.
