Hemis (Ladakh) many firsts in its name, Druk Padma Karp School of Ladakh, provides education at par with any elite educational institution in the country. Famous as Rancho School, it shot to fame after it has been featured in the Aamir Khan-starrer3 Idiots.
Most of the students in the school are first generation learners with hardly any or very little exposure to outer world. The students are mainly from the remote areas like Zasnkar and Nubra Valley.
The school was destroyed in the flash floods and landslips that hit the town in 2010. But the zeal of the Ladakhi people has brought the school back to life. The school has many awards in its name. The school building is completely powered by solar panels. The school building is first in Asia to receive the ‘Best Green Building’ award and ‘Best Asian Building’ award by the World Architecture in 2002.
Next to the school is ‘Rancho’s Coffee Shop’. A tourist place which offers Chinese or Tibetan food. Yoga, meditation, and physical education form part of the school curriculum.
