Syllabus Guidelines

Learning is an ongoing and continuous experience and every small nugget of information adds to the child’s general awareness of the world around him. The syllabus has been planned to give a rich educational environment to the children without burdening their minds. It is a creative blend of contemporary and conventional methods and the school is projected as an ‘Open Book’. The students are given ample opportunity to learn from their immediate environment in which even the plants and building become the educator’s teaching aids. There is special emphasis on current affairs and knowledge of major events which form a major section of the curriculum.

Assessment

As with the other academic programmes assessment is both Formative and Summative.

Individual portfolios of student’s achievement are kept ,which serves as an important mechanism for documenting progress. However, there is no formal examination till Foundation Stage-III, we keep accurate records of what your child is doing at school and base the academics on individual skill and interest. We do have report cards and have parent/teacher conferences regularly and work hard to establish open communication with every parent. Setting goals for success at school is important and we take into account every child’s family expectations and wishes, as well as the child’s own interests and abilities.

There is a concerted effort to establish a fit between the teaching styles and methodology and the learning patterns of our students. Great care is taken to ensure that personalized and customized action plans are drawn up to accommodate those with special requirements. Parents receive a comprehensive report that includes a qualitative assessment of all those aspects outside the scope of the classroom.

FOUNDATION YEARS (Children aged between: 2 – 5 years)

Children need to feel safe, and have classrooms that combine wonder and energy, while fostering a tone that allows even the most quiet and sensitive child an equal opportunity to interact with the teachers and helpers. For the Foundation years we have a beautiful park providing Swings, Sliding Chutes, Rocking Boats, Attractive & Educational Toys, Play way system and teaching aids. We have advanced multimedia gizmos and gadgets as well as the arrangements for providing education through a well equipped Computer Lab, so as not to give feelings to the small children that they are burdened in any way.

Cheerful interiors and specially designed furniture, clubbed with individual and laughter.Teachers ensure that learning experience is joyful, effortless and fun for children. Development and growth with careful planning and consideration to ensure a love for learning is our main criteria in the Foundation Years. Each child is encouraged to develop academically and socially through play way, phonics, discovery and thematic study. Assessment is continuous, comprehensive and informal.

STAGES I-V (Primary) :

The Primary curriculum is specially designed to lead seamlessly into the senior school programme. We have prepared our own creative curriculum drawn from the guidelines laid down by Indian and Cambridge certifications it is student-centered, project-based, and incorporates the multiple intelligence concept.

We aim to give students a broader, deeper, richer educational experience by recognizing each student’s strongest talents and building on them in order to ensure that all the areas of talent are developed. Different individuals have different aptitudes. By using the strongest aptitudes or “intelligence” as a starting point we can educate more effectively by teaching different students the same topic in different ways according to their particular “intelligence”:

Teaching is project based and incorporates the multiple intelligence concept. Linguistic skills are developed through activities such as creative writing, literature, theater, elocution and public speaking Homework is given to encourage and develop independent study skills and to complement particular fields of study.
