Love Dale Central School (LDCS) was established in June 2003 with a vision to impart quality education recognized by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The school was started as a pilot project in Belgaum City to introduce the CBSE curriculum for the very first time. LDCS continues to be a school known for its innovative techniques in education, which functions with the aim of imparting a sound, holistic education with special emphasis on character building of the students. The objective is to turn out young men and women with all the good qualities of leadership, a keen sense of discipline and responsibility, initiative and self reliance. At LDCS we are committed to inspire both the gifted students and the less gifted ones so that they rise to their true potential.
The school is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education and provides a recognized curriculum for pre-primary level (2.5 years to 5 year olds), Primary level (5 to 10 year olds) and High school level (10 – 15 year olds).
