The schools follow the CBSE syllabus which can be integrated with the International Baccalaureate IB PYP Primary Years Programmes from Kindergarten to Grade V. The uniqueness of our schools largely lies in this blended approach of offering the best of Indian content using the best of the International Methodologies. The MDN Edify Schools follow the internationally approved convention of a 12:1 student teacher ratio to optimize the learning process.
Regular field trips are organized based on our 3C Curriculum to help children understand the Inquiry Module in progress. Throughout the learning process, both the students and teachers are actively involved in assessing the student’s progress. Students regularly assess their own work and reflect on their own learning process. Teachers support the students in assessing their own work by providing assessment criteria’s. Students go through all the assessment steps through the Pre-Assessment, Formative Assessment and Summative Assessment.
Parent teacher meetings are held regularly in which the teachers show through different mediums how the students perform and behave in the class and how the students have progressed over a time period and the parents too provide their perspective.
Students maintain what they consider their best work collectively in a student’s portfolio. This helps the students self-assess their performance and learning. The portfolio is shared by the students with their parents in a Student-Led Conference. This conference allows the students to play an active role in reporting their progress to their parents. The students also put – up an Exhibition in which they showcase their Inquiry Module which also shows the action they would take and it focuses on the global issues too.
The subjects are not compartmentalized and the curriculum offers a seamless integration of classroom activities with other essential Life-skills necessary for students to emerge as leaders in the real world. Equal importance is given to developing the cognitive and psychomotor skills of students. Differentiated and child specific teaching methods help the facilitators and students by letting them move away from regular bookish knowledge, to include the amazing world outside the campus. Instead of being tied down by information provided in the classroom, the students of Edify Schools are allowed to explore their intellectual facilities, by seeing and doing things themselves.
