Commitment to Excellence
Academic excellence is certainly the priority for Siddartha School. At Siddartha we believe that all students are capable of learning and progressing. We also uphold that, education becomes actually meaningful when students are autonomous learners with abilities to understand, and acquire knowledge independently.
The learner is the focal point of the entire educational programme at Siddartha, and students are active learners who reach out to and permanently internalize knowledge through their spirit of inquiry and creativity. The curriculum, which is delivered through an innovative combination of classroom and activity-led learning, is a structured means to develop a whole range of skills, aptitudes and abilities that help students to process information into knowledge and knowledge into wisdom that can be applied to life.
An inquiry based integrated approach forms the core concept of curriculum transaction. It allows the students to explore, gather, process, refine and present information. The learning is therefore relevant and purposeful. The curriculum integrates content areas like Science, Social Studies, and Technology with process areas like Language, Art, Mathematics, Drama, and Music. These are also dealt with as standalone subjects to help the students acquire necessary skills. Inquiry approaches allow the learners to take control of their learning. They build on their prior knowledge to make and test predictions, to gather and organize information and to synthesize their findings. These conditions encourage the development of abilities like exploration, reflection, risk-taking and making an informed choice.
Siddartha, as an institution, aspires to provide its students with the best possible resources to develop into the kind of human beings that the world needs today and in future. We wish to send out young ladies and gentlemen who
- Construct their own knowledge creatively by asking questions, reading, exploring, dreaming, formulating and testing hypothesis and apply the same meaningfully to life.
- Are capable of initiating, affecting and responding effectively to all kinds of change.
- Are deeply in love with and sensitive to all the varied dimensions of life.
