St. Carmel School, affiliated to C.B.S.E., New Delhi, is a spectacular establishment set amidst serene & picturesque environs at the banks of majestic Sutlej River. Situated in the lap of nature, far away from the hustle bustle of the busy city traffic, it provides ideal environment for students to focus on their studies.
In a day and age where wide open spaces are hard to come by, the management of St. Carmel School took an initiative to nurture students in a beautiful green campus in the city of Roopnagar. The school’s approach towards learning is one which focuses not only on academic excellence but also in helping students develop their creativity, values, personal leadership, team spirit, character and entrepreneurial spirit necessary for Carmelains to achieve their full potential as global citizens and leaders of tomorrow.
Lush green trees, shrubs and plants in the lawns, alongside playgrounds are perfect air filters and provide pollution free, healthy air for breathing to the in-mates/students. Indoor plants rich in herbal properties and which purify air have been placed in sufficient numbers throughout the school. Clean corridors, big playgrounds adorned with lush green trees known for their quality to purify air, seasonal flowers and dexterously decorated lawns are a feast to eyes and provide ideally healthy & hygienic environment for our dear Carmelians.
Classrooms at SCS are well-ventilated, quite spacious and airy. Even during normal situations big and airy rooms provide sufficient spacing to our dear students.

Toilets are cleaned twice-thrice a day using a liberal quantity of disinfectant so as to save students from infection. The lawns, playgrounds and auditorium are mowed, watered and thoroughly cleaned. Roof water harvesting is in place in school to reuse our precious resource - Water. Awareness messages/thoughts about preservation of water, reducing, recycling and reusing products, avoiding plastic, segregating wet and dry waste, significance of cleanliness and becoming Eco-friendly are displayed loud and clear in the corridors.

In order to inculcate empathy and senstivity towards environmental conservation, plantation drives are organised by SCS from time to time. In addition to plantation, students are encouraged to adopt one plant and nurture it until it grows to sufficient height and is capable of independent survival. Biodegradable Waste Pit and Kitchen gardens are maintained in school which helps students become aware and empathetic towards the environment.
