How are our schools different

Multi-grade classroom and peer-assisted model.
  • Children from different ages share the same class. They work together in small groups each group containing children from different levels. Within each group they help each other in the exploration and learning process using specially designed material.
  • In this way, children have access to multiple sources of knowledge: their classmates, peers and seniors, the teaching material, and the teachers. This system promotes co-operation and self-motivation. In the conventional system, the children who are fast, get bored, and the slow ones, get frustrated. In our schools each child learns at his/her own pace.
Innovative teaching material devised in-house (runs parallel to the government syllabus). It promotes joyful learning by discovery and experience, and it is related to the practical world.

The teacher is a facilitator and guide to the process of learning and discovery. The Teachers’ role is mainly to create and maintain the atmosphere for the whole system to work.

There is a continuous evaluation system, so there is no need for the stress and pressure of exams. The children are coached only in the higher classes to give successful exams so that they can join the mainstream education.

Other school initiatives include:
  • Practical computer skills from age 8 onwards.
  • Regular physical education classes
  • Music and folk dances
  • Comprehensive arts & crafts /vocational activity every day.
  • English as a language is taught from the age of 8.
  • Gardening and maintenance of campus done by children promoting a sense of ownership and community.
