Young people desire – and deserve – opportunities to be engaged in challenging, sustained, productive group experiences. Determining the needs of a particular group of children and designing a learning program that addresses those needs is not a simple or obvious task. Our quest has led us to programs that are flexible, require diverse resources (including, for example, specialists who helped with specific or difficult subject matter), and then incorporate all of these elements over a day, a week, or a term.
Our School follows the CBSE curriculum while offering experiential and project-based learning opportunities, we dedicate specific portions of our academic calendar for intense, hands-on learning on topics that are well beyond any conventional high school curriculum.
- The goal of experience-based learning involves something personally significant or meaningful to the students.
- Students should be personally engaged.
- Reflective thought and opportunities for students to write or discuss their experiences should be ongoing throughout the process.
- The whole person is involved, meaning not just their intellect but also their senses, their feelings, and their personalities.
- Students should be recognized for prior learning they bring into the process.
- Teachers need to establish a sense of trust, respect, openness, and concern for the well-being of the students.
