LGS plans to solicit Cambridge to have a viability study for its Business Management School on the campus

Where is Laxmi Global School positioned in the current education sector of India? And, how are you leveraging the best of emerging education opportunities for the growth of the establishment?
We have more than a decade in the provision of curriculum delivery of CAIE and have carved a niche in Western India.

The Smakerspace, a very innovative idea of our dynamic Edupreneur Ms. Kinjal Gajera has brought a special place to Laxmi as well in the educational map of India. We as an institution are on the frontline in blending academics with co-curricular activities, which is one of the core parameters of NEP as well.

Provide some insights on the admission process and various academic courses that you offer at your school.
We provide a wide range of courses for Cambridge IGCSE subject. We build a curriculum around their specific needs with a wide range of abilities, including those whose first language is not English. Encouraging learners to engage with a variety of subjects, and make connections between them, is fundamental to our approach.

We offer a flexible and stimulating curriculum, supported with excellent resources and trained staff that helps in developing skills in creative thinking, inquiry, and problem solving among students. Admission is open to learners from any Board. We conduct the written test in English and Maths. If the performance is satisfactory, it is followed by admission counseling and meeting with the Principal.
Tell us the most effective methodology & technologies used in your school to ensure better learning experiences for your students?
Our only Methodology & Technology is promoting “Learning by doing”. Incorporating technology into our teaching is a great way to actively engage our students, especially as digital media surrounds young people in the 21st century.

We encourage students to ask questions and investigate their ideas, helps improve their problem-solving skills as well as gain a deeper understanding of academic concepts; both of which are important life skills. We differentiate our teaching by allocating tasks based on students’ abilities, to ensure no one gets left behind. Also, assigning classroom activities according to students’ unique learning needs means individuals with higher academic capabilities are stretched and those who are struggling get the appropriate support. We have clinics open for slow learners, which is very rare.

How are you updating your curriculum models to increase your school’s repute as compared to other international schools? What is the future roadmap set for your school?
We have included Global Perspective in our curriculum. Global perspective (GP) is an informative subject that is a blend of issues of global significance and individual, local, national, and global point of views on it and I believe it will help students to build their confidence and articulate their arguments using concrete evidence on various issues. They will not only gain awareness but this will also go on to help them in future grades or when they enter the ‘real world’. We have the plan to register with Cambridge for its Early Year Program.
