Upschool Project was founded by two mothers, Shona Santhanam and Neha Ryan, who wanted to keep their kids engaged in a fun way while also equipping them with future life skills.
With Upschool Project, they hope to provide kids with an encouraging learning environment where they can upgrade their skills and build the confidence to explore further.
Shona, a Pomona College (Top 10 liberal arts college in the US) and ISB graduate has been instrumental in shaping the computer science curriculum at Sishya over the last ten years with a focus on fun, curiosity and logic. The stellar 10th and 12th grades year after year have been a testament to the quality of the curriculum and the top notch teachers.
Neha worked in the Human Resource Department at Standard Chartered Bank for 5 yrs and was instrumental in hiring software Engineers for Cognizant Technology Solutions in Chennai.
