Philosophy of Teaching
The school believes in engaging the students actively in the teaching-learning process. Students are encouraged through activities to analyse and apply concepts. Learning environments which facilitate asking questions, making self-discoveries and persistent problem solving are deliberately created.
While rote memory is not encouraged, creative and critical thinking skills are intentionally nurtured by engaging in experiential learning. Curiosity, confidence, ability to reflect and higher order thinking skills are some of the benefits of the interactive teaching followed in the classrooms.
Teachers use a 5 step process for teaching all concepts across all age groups – aim, action, analysis, application and assessment. Teachers have access to excellent teaching resources and undergo regular training sessions. Students use application practice workbooks for every subject in addition to the usual textbooks. The workbooks require the students to apply the teaching content while encouraging them to work independently. Students are equipped to ask questions and make discoveries independently.
Experiential teaching followed in our classrooms increases curiosity, confidence, ability to reflect, and higher order thinking skills in children. It also helps the students to develop their own responsibility in learning which increases the interest in the subject.

In Nursery and Pre-primary departments, the class teachers teach all the subjects. For the other classes, the departments are based on subjects – English Department, Languages Department, Maths Department, Science Department, Social Science Department, Computer Science Department, Commerce Department. The heads of department lead their team of teachers in curricular and co-curricular activities.
The report cards provide more than the traditional, one-dimensional academic assessment of marks. The school seeks to provide parents with a more holistic understanding of their children’s academic progress. The report cards include information about the class position of the child in each subject, along with personalized comments about their test performance. They also include a graphic representation of where the student’s score in each subject stands in terms of the class average and the class topper’s marks.
