Equipping Students With Self-Knowledge and Real World Skills
We have noticed that students' creativity, confidence and learning ability grows by leaps and bounds when we 'hear' them.
We listen, we observe and provide a tailor made personalised learning program for each child.
How we differ from most schools
Planning the Day
Each student has a planning diary and the first thing they do every morning is plan what they will achieve during the day.
These are scheduled individual meetings between the mentor (teacher) and each student to discuss where they are: academically, creatively and personally. Our ratio is 8 students to a mentor. The mentor is the child's guide in school just like the parents at home.
We believe that parents know their children the best so we make sure to learn as much as we can from them. As an education institution, we want to continue the journey of education that you have started at home.
Teachers as Coaches
The role of a teacher here is that of a coach. We work alongside our students, get to know them individually and coach them to their full potential. We work as a cohesive team to ensure that every student is being heard.
Like our learning, we believe that self and group discipline should happen as a result of being motivated intrinsically. To encourage that, every rule is discussed 'democratically'. Students participate in outlining rules and boundaries.
Our Learning Program has 2 elements:
The Personalised Learning Program (9am - 12 noon)
Electives (1pm - 3pm)
The Personalised Learning Program will cover the academics while the electives will cover the extra-curricular areas.
You can register for either element or both. Further information (schedule, fee etc) is on the Program Information Sheet.
Assessment for Learning & Exam Prep
Assessment for learning is done through formative assessment tools. For English and Math, we use the IXL continuous diagnostic system that monitors and helps students progress with a personalised learning plan. We also prepare students for standardised exams in line with their goal.
