Smrti prepares a child for the real world. An age appropriate curriculum, activity based learning, connecting books to real life and “building for change” sums up our approach. The focus is Knowledge, Skills, Values and Attitude. The child learns to compete with herself/himself and works on how to learn rather than what to learn. The child is prepared not only to enjoy Learning but also how to handle challenges in real life. S/he is better equipped to handle change and comes out more resilient.
Activities are a significant part of the Curriculum. The School encourages children to participate in Sports, Games, Arts, Performing Arts and Community Service. The campus is designed to help children understand that they are indeed a part of Nature and that Life is about these inter-connections. The 21st Century Skills, namely, Foundational Literacy, Competence and Character Building are woven in to our Lesson Plans and Activities.
A child centric approach is taken in Learning. The assessment uses the LSRW Method (Listening Skills, Speaking Skills, Reading Skills and Writing Skills) and we do clearly understand that during the first few formative years from 1st to 3rd Grades, the child needs to get contextual understanding of what s/he reads and also writing stamina.
