Our curriculum consists of well-planned, purposeful activities to engage the children totally in the learning process, so that the children enjoy their studies and extra-curricular activities while steadily progressing in a wholesome manner. We follow the IB’s PYP curriculum and methodology from Pre-Primary to Grade V; and that of CBSE for Grade VI to X.
We offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP) of International Baccalaureate at this level. In order to make it more meaningful, we integrate Indian elements and values into it.
For children aged 3-12, the PYP provides an international curriculum framework and also guidelines in terms of learning outcomes, teaching methodologies and assessment strategies. Using these guidelines, we have developed a comprehensive curriculum including all essential elements according to the standards set by the IBO.
The inquiring mind leads the child into exploring various themes such as:
Who we are
Where we are in place and time
How we express ourselves
How the world works
How we organize ourselves
Sharing the planet
The PYP provides purposeful inquiry which actively involves students in their own learning process. Their classes are built around these themes of inquiry and include:
Science and Technology
Personal, Social and Physical Education
The school is affiliated to the CBSE. This board closely follows the guidelines of the National Curriculum Framework. For this reason, it is becoming the curriculum of choice all across India.
I-3 Focus is a unique concept that we emphasize on at Niraj International School. It combines the three most powerful aspects which contribute to the learning efficiencies of the child.
Intelligence focus is when the student’s core intelligence and flair is identified. The famous Multiple Intelligence Theory, developed by Howard Gardner describes an array of different kinds of intelligences exhibited by human-beings. Gardner suggests that each individual manifests varying levels of these different intelligences, and thus each person has a unique cognitive profile. Everybody can be intelligent, if his/her intelligence is identified and developed correctly. Intelligence focus zooms in on this point.
Inspirational focus is understanding the dreams and aspirations of the children and giving them the support needed to realize them. At Niraj International School, we encourage and motivate the children to dream and work towards converting their dreams and wishes into tangible realities.
Individual focus is about giving personalized attention to all students. Individual focus is about giving personalized attention to all students. To achieve this we limit the number of students per class. It fosters a direct and harmonious relationship between the teacher and the child. This also teaches the children the significance of individual focus, and they begin to show and feel empathy, compassion and respect towards the needs and feelings of others.
