Learning Pathways

Holistic Development of the Learner!

The integrated curriculum includes hands-on activities to allow children to connect with the environment. Painting and performing arts like elocution, quiz, dramatics, singing, and dance are effortlessly blended into the curriculum. Students are graded on their performance in these various activities. Field trips to places of cultural, historical, and environmental interest are incorporated into the curriculum. Festivals are celebrated each month and the significance of each is explained through small skits enacted on the occasion. Children grow in competence as they are provided with exposure to inter-school competitions. Prominent personalities often visit the school and encourage children on their journeys of growth. Children are taught the rules of etiquette and behaviour to enable them to face various situations they might experience. Children are helped to develop into holistic individuals capable of inspiring positive changes in the society.

Where Wisdom rules the Curriculum

The school follows the CBSE syllabus integrated with the International method of PYP - Primary Years Programme from kindergarten to grade V. The uniqueness of the school largely lies in this blended approach of offering Indian content using international methodologies. The school follows the international convention of a 12:1 student teacher ratio for kindergarten and 15:1 student teacher ratio from grade 1 through grade 4 to optimize learning. Regular field trips are organized based on the PYP programme to help children understand the unit of inquiry in progress. Throughout the learning process, both students and teachers actively get involved in assessing student progress. Students regularly assess their own work and reflect on their learning process. Teachers support the students in assessing their work by providing assessment criteria. Students go-through the pre-assessment, formative assessment and summative assessment.

Parent teacher meetings are held regularly in which the teachers describe how the students perform and behave in the class and parents provide their perspective.

Students maintain their purposeful collection in portfolio. This helps the students in becoming self-assessors. The portfolio is shared by the students with the parent in a Student-Led Conference. This conference allows the students to play an active role in reporting the progress to their parents. The students also put up an Exhibition in which they showcase their unit of Inquiry which focuses on the global issues.

The subjects are not compartmentalized and the curriculum offers a seamless integration of classroom activities with other essential skills necessary for students to emerge as leaders in the real world. Equal importance is given to developing the cognitive and psychomotor skills of students. The teaching methodology often moves away from books to include the world outside the campus. Instead of being merely providing information in the classroom, they are allowed to explore their various intellectual facilities by seeing and doing things themselves.
