At RK Modern Senior Secondary School in Noida, we believe in providing a nurturing environment that fosters the growth and development of our students’ self-esteem, confidence, and resilience. Here are ten strategies that we use to help raise confident and resilient students:
Celebrating students’ achievements, no matter how small, helps to build their confidence and self-esteem. At RK Modern Senior Secondary School, we celebrate students’ academic, sports, and extracurricular achievements regularly.

Encouraging positive self-talk is an effective way to boost students’ confidence. We teach students to use positive affirmations and to replace negative self-talk with positive self-talk.
Opportunities for Leadership
Providing opportunities for leadership, such as student councils, clubs, and sports teams, helps students develop confidence, teamwork skills, and leadership skills.
