Smrti Learning Program
Learning @ Smrti - Connecting Books to Real Life
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 come 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 new campus is designed to help children understand that they are indeed a part of Nature and that Life is about these inter-connections.

Learning @ Smrti Academy
The Foundational Stage covers Pre-Primary to 3rd Grade. Our Integrated Montessori Approach takes this stage up to 3rd Grade which is the logical point as regards Child Development.
The Preparatory Stage covers 4th and 5th Grades. In this Stage, Smrti Academy moves to an Activity Based Approach helping children grasp abstract concepts through activities.
The Middle Stage is for the Age Group of 11 to 14 years. This is a transition time for children as they move from being children but are still not in adolescence. There is a shift in energy levels as children change physically, get more robust, and hormonal changes are beginning to set it. There will be a need to bring a lot of physical activities into the curriculum so that energies are expended constructively. The mind and body need to be kept active through various physical activities. This is the period where they need to shift towards self-learning. For this to happen, children need to be reflective, confident, and willing to take responsibility. They should think through situations using inquiry and be able to assess information for its relevance. The Smrti Middle-Stage Curriculum is tailored to meet the needs of children. They move to High School as confident adults.
The Secondary Stage covers 9th to 12th Grades. There is not only a need for children to understand the basics very well but also practice the techniques well so that they can attempt the 10th and 12th Grades Board Exams and the competitive exams like JEE, NEET, CLAT, etc.
