The Early Years Program is a blend of experiential learning and a gradual building up of skills for the Foundation Years. While we realise the importance of nurturing the natural curiosity of a child and letting every child develop and learn at their own pace, we also believe in step by step building up of skills so that the child is ready to take on the academic and other challenges of a higher grade. Our early years program is testimony of that.
The Foundation Program is exactly that, a foundation. This is the stage where all the basic concepts are taught through multi modal instruction. Concepts which are taught are drilled through various means of expression such as worksheets, class activities, games and interactive circle time so that the concepts are embedded in the child’s mind before we expand the concepts to the next level.
The Foundation Years Program moves the child from a phase of exploration to a phase of knowledge where all the skill - sets are taught separately but integrated and applied in real life situations through projects and demonstrations by the children.
This laying of the foundation is crucial to the edifice of knowledge that we will be building in the Middle Years Program.
The Middle Years Program transfers the child from the phase of knowledge to the next phase of application.
At this stage we start building on the foundation and add the bricks of skill sets to this theoretical knowledge base. Children will carry out experiments in simulated and real time laboratories in Chemistry and Physics. They will also explore the physical region and climate of Africa and Australia through Geography and the cultural and social aspects of the same countries through the Literature emerging out of these continents. In the Middle Years we challenge the children to look beyond, compare, critique, question and contribute!
The middle years are also an exploration into the child’s natural inclination towards a particular stream which helps them hone their talent and academic skills in the direction of a professionals or a passion for life.
At JGM School High we understand the implication of these three years. Our higher education program brings in subject matter expertise teachers who pool in their years of knowledge and expertise to ensure that students are prepared for the academic challenges that await them.
The curriculum has been created to give horizontal relevance to the student, i.e. it is meaningful to them at the time of learning and has vertical alignment with the broad goals of the national and international systems of education so that every concept is a building block for the next concept.
We create opportunities for the young adults to interact with various professions and receive an in depth counseling to help them select their avenues for life. Our expert faculty doubles up as their friend and guide to help them deal with the pressure of these years.
Our constant endeavour to ensure complete understanding of the concept by the child drives us to seek new means to deliver the curriculum.
Our team strongly believes in the right blend of tradition and modernity. We have developed our own content which is relevant, current and broad based. We have integrated most of our lessons with media tools like power point presentation, videos and interactive games.
Our curriculum is delivered effectively through multi media teaching where classrooms become an interactive area of learning rather than a passive one. Each lesson is planned so that media becomes a supplement to the teachers not a substitute for them.
