MULTIDISCIPLINARY 

In today and tomorrow’s world students require multidomain knowledge and skills. We break the mould of teaching by subject. Through our project-based system students are able to learn mathemathics, literacy and history through the arts. They are able to mix knowledge from different domains to come up with a creative solution or outcome. 

ORGANIC LEARNING

Our competence-oriented approach allows students to learn through their own mistakes, reflect and improve. It allows students the space and time for errors and correction. A system which aims to reshape how students portray Failure. 

 

INTEREST DRIVEN

Motivation like in anything else in life is a key aspect in a child’s learning experience. When learning is joyful and desirable, students are hungry to learn on their own, without outside persuasion

Our Mission – a different Ethos

Our aim is to cultivate a culture of curiosity, which allows students to inquire for answers rather than just listen and conform. We want to cultivate diversity by creating the space for different ideas to be shared and individual growth to happen.

The main aim is to generate a learning experience that these children will reflect on and continue to develop for the rest of their lives. To develop a Growth Mindset – that is to teach students to acknowledge that their knowledge, skills and talents are malleable and can be developed-. This mindset opens individuals to endless possiblities.

Another objective that we aim to transcend is about Failure! Many of our children often become sanitized and averse towards the idea of failure by the current ‘schooling’ system which rewards test scores over process. We celebrate failure for it allows students to reflect and think of better ways and solutions. Failure is a critical part of learning which encourages creativity and individual growth.
