Academics Learning is a treasure
At K.R. Mangalam, we go by the saying ‘Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.’ Learning is an ongoing process and can be done at any age. The initial years of children form their base for the future. And we strive to imbibe in them a desire to attain knowledge early on, to get their brain juices flowing with curiosity.
The school follows a pre-primary curriculum with a wide range of activities with an intent to nurture the physical, emotional, social, creative development and critical thinking in each student. We want to create an environment that helps children discover their potential to become responsible individuals and not merely restrict themselves to classroom teaching.
Teaching methods are constantly evolving, and to keep up with them, regular training, re-training, and workshops are conducted by an expert to help teachers adapt to such methods and direct them toward new teaching methodologies.
An array of teaching methods are applied to pique students’ curiosity, encourage participation, and challenge assumptions. Teachers use interactive tools like smart classes, PowerPoint presentations, group assignments, and field trips, that form a part of the child-centric methodology and thus, instill in students resourcefulness, street smartness, confidence, and analytical skills. Seminars and workshops are also included in the school curriculum.
Our faculty makes the best use of audio-visual teaching to help bring clarity of thought and understanding to day-to-day classroom concepts. It all comes down to adding to creativity while making the teaching-learning process fun and informative.
Learning in the pre-primary years is done through a systematic approach of recognizing each child’s unique abilities, personality, and styles of learning. A typical school day comprises academic and co-curricular activities with a special focus on the individual requirements of our students.
The school focuses on making students learn by solving real-life problems. We use interdisciplinary project-based learning that helps nurture the emotional health, social awareness, and responsibility of the students. It allows teachers to evaluate students using a broader set of parameters reflecting the individual strengths of each child.
The following intelligence is imbued in our children through play way methods with emphasis on activities:
