Today, the role of a school is not only to pursue academic excellence but also to motivate and empower its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive members of an ever changing global society. A school must try to provide its students with an atmosphere for multifaceted development , where children are encouraged to channelize their potential in the pursuit of excellence. This can only be possible in a holistic, student- centric environment. The talents, skills, and abilities of each student need to be identified nurtured, and encouraged so that he/ she is able to reach greater heights. Students need to be provided with a platform to think, confront them, with the teacher being a facilitator.
We often make the critical mistake of considering children, regardless of their age, class, ethnicity, or background , like a blank notebook that is yet to be written upon. In doing so, we often fail to realize that each child has his /her own individuality, special skills, and talents. Therefore, a good educational system is one that helps a child to nurture his / her talents and overcome shortcomings by providing appropriate, all-encompassing education. This enables the child to development his /her personality and equips the child to face the challenges of life.
So, our approach to learning is child-centric, encouraging activity-based learning and inculcating a scientific temper and a spirit of free enquiry. In our curriculum, the student is the primary focus, and each child is involved in the learning process .
