Grades 9 & 10, 11 & 12
At the end of Grade 8, our educators discuss the road ahead jointly with the children and their parents. We offer both the ICSE and the IGCSE for Grade 10, and the ISC, AS & A Levels for Grade 12.
Students may choose one of these boards based on their future plans and requirements. We offer students opportunities to pursue projects and research activities based on their areas of interest. The curriculum is analysed and lessons planned to not only combine the joy and discovery of knowledge but also to encompass competency requirements. The exposure is to peripheral, linked, interrelated concepts which aid understanding. Learning is not compromised; and understanding is essentially the priority.
Emphasis is on preparing for future education and the steps to be taken towards entering undergraduate and later, graduate programmes.Our faculty is well versed with college requirements both in India and overseas and guidance is given to learners accordingly. Students also spend time with their mentors understanding the contemporary relevance of the subjects they are pursuing. Being able to reach beyond themselves and touch the lives of others, search for new answers to old questions and connect to humanity in general is an important part of each learner’s development.
As a school we also work with counsellors who can guide our students with specific college application processes. Based on what a student is looking for we can recommend a suitable advisor. A number of mentors also visit our school to interact with our students and enrich their knowledge with regard to what is happening in their fields of study at the particular point of time. The idea is to give contemporary relevance to the subject of study. This we believe is an opportunity for the learners to ask questions and help them take more informed and discerning decisions in the future.
Our graduating students have gone on to attend universities in India and abroad. College advisors also work with our faculty to keep them informed about what colleges to look for so that students can have a road map. We have learned that it is important for our students to focus on what they are passionate about and not just engage in activities for the sake of doing so or are not passionate or curious about. It is important to address passion and interest.
Our Primary Programme (Grades 1, 2 and 3) is built on the philosophy and pedagogy of Maria Montessori, which takes into consideration the growing and developmental needs of children of this age group. The mixed age group in each environment (ages 6 to 9 approximately) provides opportunities for wider social interaction, the development of essential life skills such as cooperating with others, turn-taking, understanding the dynamics of a group, and accepting responsibility for one's decisions and actions. Groups of children work on different concepts, unlike in a traditional classroom where every child is doing the same thing.
After spending time in the Primary Montessori environment, children are ready to move to a single aged group from Grade 4 onwards. Our philosophy and practices remain in place, while learners gradually adapt to a more structured timetable. Our Middle School programme is more about a curriculum and not so much about a syllabus. This includes learners’ own unique experiences, and opportunities are given to discover their own potential.
