Contemporary teaching methodologies and infrastructure further facilitate faster and better learning. The curriculum is also scientifically designed to coincide with the key personality areas. The aim at the end of the day is a smile and undoubted pride on every Gurukulite.

Personality Development

A Crucial factor that moulds the personality of a child is the environment to which they are exposed. Need not say that no place can be a better place than school for personality development. Gone are the times when school used to be mere chalk and duster classes. Now a day’s school is becoming more activity oriented and interactive. School gives a broader perspective on life, more knowledge and broader platform to share views and gain experiences. More importantly, they help in development of cognitive, behavioural and emotional intelligence part of one’s personality. At our school we take full care to provide a nurturing environment and that inculcates good values and provides an opportunity to the child to develop a personality that will make him stand out in the crowd.

School Events

Educational Trips

Students are sent on field trips to have a better grasp of the content that they theoretically learn in class rooms. They visit places like industries, construction sites, dairy farms, bakery, banks, supermarket, parliament etc. This helps the child to develop the insight and inquisitiveness to learn things with ease. These trips are properly and meticulously planned by the team of teachers and experts.

Our pristine playgrounds and prodigious basket ball courts are essentially designed to provide rigorous training regime during and post school hours.

Pre Primary

Development of Language

This is the first exposure of the child to a school system before his formal schooling begins. The emphasis here is on the development of language through the four skills listening,speaking,reading and writing . The activities and days are planned in such a way that the child learns something new every day. The activities are meticulously planned and the expectations of the child are kept in mind so that the child waits and does not want to miss the school even for a single day. The facilitators “make” it a point to reach out to every child.

Nutritious Meals

Children are provided with rich and nutritious meals to inculcate good eating habits. This also instills in them the skills like knowing about healthy food, table manners, sharing and other important values which becomes the foundation for the entire life of the child.

Values Driven

The Birthday of every Gurukulite is celebrated in the school in the form of monthly Havan being performed by the children whose birthday falls in a particular month.

Story Telling

Kathashala is our story telling room. The reason to have a specific story telling room named as Kathashala is to bring the culture of storytelling back to the childhood. Children relive stories and give wings to their imagination here. They listen to stories in a very informal atmosphere and share a special bond with the story teller. Retelling stories, role plays, making props and reading books bring out the best in each child and facilitate cooperative learning. Telling stories using puppets is the closest to the heart of all.

3 C’s Concept

The observations of the teacher about every child she is dealing with are recorded in the student profile register which shows the progress in his development over the session. The child competes with himself.
They learn the "three" C's -
- No complaint,
- No competition,
- No comparison.

Primary

For 1st & 2nd-grade children, the program builds on the skills already developed and children continue to learn in a nurturing and hands-on learning environment.

GPEP program

Primary School is a comfortable place for children to learn through exploration, while instruction becomes increasingly more structured as each child develops and matures. One of our major goals for students is to find joy in learning while developing specific skills, applying concepts and exploring ideas. The GPEP program emphasizes the development of language, writing and arithmetic skills, while integrating Sci. and Social Studies(EVS).

Learning in multiple ways

In addition to learning core academic subjects, children need to grow in other areas that are equally important in the development of a well-rounded individual.
Teachers who have been specially trained in their subject area provide an enriching experience to all students through a curriculum that includes regularly scheduled classes in English, Math, EVS, Hindi, French, Computers, Art, Music and Physical Education.
Classroom activities in a rich environment are supplemented by a variety of additional experiences that includes visiting artists, performers, and authors, field trips, drama, role-play and story-telling, life skills, library activities, extracurricular opportunities. Parent volunteers are encouraged to participate regularly both in and out of the classroom throughout their child’s Primary School experience. They are invited as judges in interclass competitions.

Conducted continuously and at regular intervals, our dynamic assessments, comprise of four Unit tests, at regular intervals and the bi- annual Summative Assessments, that summarise the child's growth in both the scholastic and co-scholastic domains.

Inter and Intra school competetions

Our operational imperatives, work on the identification of each child's uniqueness through project based, interdisciplinary and analytical approach to teaching and learning. Avenues of various Intra Class, Inter Class and Inter school competitions, are created to let the students prove their mettle by rubbing their shoulders with their counterparts, explore wide horizons while steering clear of unhealthy competition.

Teaching Methodology

We relentlessly work on the identification of every child's unique intelligence, and commit ourselves wholeheartedly to create opportunities to optimize their potential. Various avenues of learning and exploring inside and outside the boundaries of school are created to foster an independence of thought, and appropriate decision making.
With a fine underpinning of our vision statement, ‘education empowers the child, influences the home and transforms society’; Gurukul Progressive Educational Program,(GPEP) is designed, and evolved continuously in accordance with the global trends.

All the four Cs, of our school- Classroom, Corridor, Campus and Community, teamed with our insightful teaching pedagogies, work hand in hand for the creation of skillful and contributing citizens of society.

Teaching self-discipline

We have redefined our house system, and launched an all- new Class Ranking System, where each class - under the captaincy of Class- teacher, contests for the 'Best Class of the Year' trophy by participating in various competitions, and an array of activities such special assemblies, speaking walls, information boards and participation in scholastic and co-scholastic competitions. The meticulously conceived parameters of assessment encourage a preference for self-discipline over imposed discipline. The students grow up with the realization of accepting the responsibility of their actions, on-guard or off- guard.

Senior School

Preparing For Life

The undergrads who are on the threshold to move into colleges and about to leave the Alma Mater get ‘hands on experience’ to a series of activities and events which prepare them for life. These students are given experience and excitement of discovering their capabilities through classrooms activities, stagecraft, International Exchange Programs, Sports activities, Class Presentations, Techspree, Orientation Day Program and many more such events thoughtfully mapped in the School Calendar.

International Exchange Programmes

One of the primary reasons why students choose to participate in student exchange programs is for the learning opportunities they provide. These students learn to analyze the things around them in a constructive manner and learn how to solve problems on their own. By having the opportunity to discover themselves in a place that is unfamiliar to them, students develop self-awareness and self-esteem in a manner that cannot be duplicated. These students learn the ability to confront social challenges outside of their comfort zones and deal with problems head-on. Also, exchange students learn to live in their host families’ households, and this increases the value they place on home and family life. They will also learn how to form their own opinions about the things that matter most to them.
The school has successfully conducted the student – teacher exchange program with Poland, Indonesia, USA, Germany, China, Ireland and many more.
