Student-Centered learning is an approach that minimizes instructor s’ ability by allowing instructors to employ a variety of teaching methods versus one single method of teaching. Teacher-centered learning is transmission of knowledge where school teachers are primary information giver and evaluator and student’s role is passively receiving information. The objective of the study is to observe the five comprehensive aspects of one s’ growth: namely personal, professional, social, environmental and temperamental. It is also to compare the holistic learning of the student in all the five areas at student-centered and teacher-centered learning institution respectively. The focus-group interviews & thematic analysis of 30 students and 20 teachers was the medium to conduct the study. The results emphasized on the cooperative, collaborative and supportive learning patterns in schools & also concluded that effective use of technology, dynamic teacher education, and intensive training program for teacher and parents can improve the quality and quantity of learning to the increasingly diverse student population. The results declared more holistic learning in student centered learning institutions.
