RI School is a large school campus in a small town in northern Gujarat. It intends to become a hub for various students from nearby towns. It is a residential school campus including a large sports arena with facilities for cricket, tennis, basketball, swimming among others, and the main school and administrative blocks along with hostels to stay on campus.

 

In the academic block there are essentially three buildings sitting over a large podium. This part is focused on the school blocks. The largest block (Block P) is the main school, with kindergarten, primary and secondary classes. The middle one (Block A) contains the administrative facilities along with a library and AV room. While the smallest one (Block H) contains classes for higher secondary students along with science labs. The podium over which all these blocks sit, contains a large auditorium for school level gatherings, along with a few other services and a teacher’s lounge. A large plaza is created by the podium that acts as a spillover place for all the students when there’s a break or after school hours.
