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.
CBSE Curriculum :
Schools of MDN Edify Education adopt and adapt the CBSE philosophy to practice education for all without discrimination of any sort, this addresses the needs of the age groups being addressed. To a great extent the prime focus of Edify schools is the same as the CBSE Board. Our Edify Schools practice a skill based curriculum and is content driven as well. The examination and evaluation processes are extremely dynamic to keep pace with the changing trends of research in education. We at MDN Edify work continuously on innovations in teaching-learning methodologies by devising student friendly and student centered systems.
MDN Edify Education believes that in their Schools, education is for life and not for passing the particular Grade examinations. And so the curricula, the pedagogical practices and the wide choice of subjects offered are such that children grow into competent, qualified and productive human resources of the workplace of tomorrow. Children are given enough freedom as well as space along with a democratic set up to enable them to develop the power of introspection and the belief that along with freedom comes responsibility. They must know that they are responsible for the choices they make, the decisions they take and the actions they get involved in.
Children learn to solve all sorts of problems through teamwork. They learn the skills of learning for continuous improvement. The classroom transactions are designed to generate inter-disciplinary knowledge through interactive sessions by creating opportunities for processing information. In today’s technology driven knowledge era, the above mentioned components are integral to the holistic development of children. Teachers in Edify Schools are facilitators in the true sense of the word. They guide and assist their students while providing the students with the required scaffolding so that the children can bring out their best potential.
MDN Edify Schools truly believe that as a ‘healthy mind can be found in a healthy body’. Similarly a conducive, positive environment encourages a sensitive, self motivated and goal oriented citizen, who is proud of what and how he/she is. Our Schools open windows for the children to the outside world through Guest Lectures, Field Visits and Open Forums, through which children become more perceptive of the tough competition in the real world. We counsel our students to choose careers intelligently to ensure that children excel in whatever they do, all this again by introducing them face to face to people from all walks of life.
