FLAME was founded in 2004 as a strong reaction against the rigidity, aridity and empty formalism of a syllabus-bound educational system led to a journey in pedagogic innovation. A desire was born, to enhance formal education with traditional knowledge through a progressive methodology. The pedagogical structure comprising the FSLE, FSB and FSC emerged after substantial discussions with distinguished intellectuals, scholars, philosophers and educationists. This structure is specifically designed to surmount the educational crisis in the contemporary scenario that insists on evaluating educational outcome in quantitative capsules.

This will be the first year of their performing arts programme.
