Our overall journey has been a fulfilling experience and our teams’ commitment to offer the best learning experience to the students has helped us to build a positive reputation in this segment. We are IBPYP and IBMYP authorized school and this is something unique in itself. Our students also apply what they have learned in real-life problems, find solutions and then evaluate their effectiveness. Also, we make sure that our students develop their international mindedness so that they can reach for greater heights. Our students also participate in various curricular and co-curricular competitions as well as regular field trips as part of their learning process.

In your opinion how is the IB program helping you to offer a holistic learning experience to your students?
The IB program is adopted by schools worldwide whose emphasis is on developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring learners, with the ability to make a difference in the world. The program is in itself unique owing to the fact that the curriculum is focused on the approach to learning and teaching, rather than only the content involved. It encourages ‘student agency’ where students are able to take ownership of their own learning enabling them to consider the opinions and viewpoints of others around them. IB provides the learners with extensive opportunities to apply the process of learning to global issues and reallife contexts and make a positive change. We believe that, no other curriculum is better suited for churning out the next generation of global leaders.
