Academics and Curriculum
There is growing awareness among teachers, parents and workplaces that standardised tests which judge the capabilities of students are one-dimensional and education systems need to develop the 21st century skills required for children to successfully negotiate dynamic and uncertain demands of today’s workforce.
The future we envision for each child is of her becoming a conscientious world citizen, a learner for life and a creative, connected and collaborative problem solver. The assisi child learns to look at the world from many different perspectives, through the language and nuances of different subjects integrated together and through the context of real world interests, needs and challenges.
At the Assisi Central School, we believe that every child is unique and we nurture that uniqueness – through a stimulating environment that breeds curiosity, freedom and encouragement to pursue passion, practice of self-reflection to know where their sense of meaning and mastery comes from, and a plethora of opportunities leads to acquisition of skills and capacities to fulfil that dream and also to flourish in this constantly emerging interconnected world.
The child is at the centre of all that we do and we keep revisiting the needs of this child in tune with what is demanded from him/her. We aim at the attributes that this child should possess, and the practices and pedagogical tools provide us with the behaviours, actions, measures and structures that is a translation of intentions
