"Education", said Aristotle, is the creation of a sound mind in a sound body". It encompasses in itself the all round development of an individual. In a world where the boundaries are shrinking rapidly due to rapid advancement in technology, the children need to be equipped with an analytical mind, broad outlook and a healthy body. Therefore, in keeping with its Motto “Soar to Achieve”, AFHS aims to provide holistic education to help every individual child achieve his or her true potential.
