YOUNG SCIENTISTS

PROGRAM FOR THE STUDENTS OF GRADE 6 TO 8

Welcome to the world of MIDDLE SCHOOL YEARS

Focus is on creating love for science and technology by inviting scientists from reputed research organisations & by providing exposure to innovations happening around the world, through videos & guest lectures and project based teaching and learning methods.
The Middle School Program is structured to meet children’s varied intellectual and developmental needs. The curriculum is a blend of concepts and skills learnt in the Primary School. It ensures progression and continuity across various stages of learning in the School, and incorporates continuous evaluation and review of children’s performance.

The main aims of the Program include developing skills related to writing, reading, reflecting, critical thinking, public speaking, fostering initiative among students and a desire to acquire knowledge. Academic subjects include English, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, Mathematics, Science, History, and Geography. Drama, Computer studies, Music, Yoga and Dance are integrated into the mainstream curriculum and are further strengthened as optional co-curricular activities.
PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education) helps students address their age-specific interests and concerns, builds awareness, and promotes compassionate and ethical conduct. Physical Education is offered in a more formal manner and sports skills are fine-tuned.

The Integration Project showcases the knowledge and skills acquired by students in various subjects, and serves as a concrete step towards developing inter-disciplinary approaches in later years. Field trips and excursions aid in developing social skills and in raising awareness about the world. Projects, presentations and group activities are more formal and research-based. Inter-house cultural and sports competitions encourage healthy competition and team spirit. Students begin to contribute to class assemblies, concerts and drama productions, and take up roles of responsibility. Community service is offered through School initiated programs and partnerships with NGOs.
