“Education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.”– Malcolm Forbes
As the School is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, it adheres to NCERT/CBSE Curriculum
The curriculum refers to the lessons and academic content to be taught to a learner in school. It typically refers to the knowledge and skills, the students are expected to learn. In empirical terms, it may be regarded as the sum total of a planned set of educational experiences provided to a learner by a school. The curriculum at Shanti Asiatic School is designed in such a way so that the students become a complete individual and independent lifelong learners, motivated to seek true knowledge which is experiential and transformational.
I3 Learning Ladder
I= Inquisitiveness I= Inquiry attitude I= Innovation
I= Step one of learning is to get the child inquisitive about a subject, topic, object, concept. It is truly believed that unless one is not curious enough to learn, the sole purpose of learning is diluted.
II= Step two is to ensure that the curiosity developed is sustained. This is achieved by giving constant encouragement, to him/her to inquire, ask random or relevant questions and in the process build a healthy inquiry based learning approach.
III= Step three, is free the mind of the child to think, recreate and re innovate making it an experience that he/she cherishes for life. At the end of the day learning is all about remembering one’s own experiences.
This methodology is supplemented with teamwork, project methodology and interactive learning. This ensures that the classes are vibrant, cooperative, cheerful and overflowing with ideas.
