We are closely aligning our school curriculum to help children prepare for the IGCSE Examinations. By aligning our work with the Cambridge international Curriculum framework, we can map the progress of students and plan according. The curriculum for the early years mirrors the framework of the primary and middle school programmes of Cambridge.
Students at Life School are encouraged towards thoughtful pursuit of justice, sensitivity to others, formation and understanding of procedures, and conflict resolution within the school and local community. We have a project centric approach for studying the sciences, land, culture and socio-economic nature of the societies we live in.
Learning at Life School is hands-on, contextual, and multi-cultural.
The learning environment facilitates understanding, creativity, wonder, exploration, investigation and communication.
Learning consists of projects, lessons, inquiry based investigations and discussions, class and small group interactions, art and crafts, drama, audio-visual sessions, laboratory work, field trips, reference work and self-study are all part of the learning process.
Mathematics and Science are explored as subjects that exist in nature – dynamic, subjective, creative and natural. Students develop mathematical thinking and scientific temper through an iterative learning process that incorporates curiosity, observations, intuition, hypotheses, modelling, experiment, justifications, consensus building and presentations.
Children are encouraged to experience the beauty of languages by reading, writing and sharing their understandings, feelings and work. Engaging in community service is vital to the growth of the child, expression of life and community.
Life School integrates creativity, imagination, emotions, body rhythms and health as core components of learning. Explorations of social, emotional and natural needs of life are as necessary as academic areas like math, language, science and social studies. Non-traditional learning are essential in developing the being: art and craft, yoga, meditation, affirmations, music, dance, field trips, nature-based work, games and sports. While these are included in math, science, language sessions, students also have sessions that offer immersion in these activities. Specialists from various areas will be regularly invited to give workshops and talks.
While English is the medium of instruction, children have work and activity time in Hindi and Kannada.
