Multidimensional Environment

At Foundation School, we believe in cultivating a multidimensional academic environment that goes beyond conventional learning. Our approach to academics encompasses a holistic perspective, recognizing that education is not limited to textbooks alone. We strive to provide students with a rich and diverse learning experience that includes not only theoretical knowledge but also practical application, critical thinking, creativity, and interpersonal skills. Through interactive projects, hands-on activities, real-world connections, and innovative teaching methods, we create an environment where students can explore their interests, develop a deep understanding of subjects, and prepare for the challenges of the modern world. Our commitment to a multidimensional academic approach empowers students to thrive academically, socially, and personally, fostering well-rounded individuals who are poised for success in their educational journey and beyond.

The student-teacher ratio in a school refers to the number of students enrolled in the school divided by the total number of teachers. It is an important metric that can impact the quality of education and the level of individual attention students receive. A lower student-teacher ratio generally indicates a more favorable learning environment with more personalized attention for each student.

STUDENT TEACHER RATIO

Conventional class periods, typically ranging from 30 to 45 minutes, serve as brief introductions to subjects. Nevertheless, this duration often falls short in facilitating profound comprehension. Consequently, endeavors are undertaken to extend these sessions to up to 60 minutes, allowing students to immerse themselves in a topic. This approach aids in nurturing sustained focus and delving deeper into subject matter, thus enhancing the learning experience.

EXTENDED LEARNING SESSIONS

At The Foundation School, we firmly uphold the belief that true fulfillment stems from the ability to engage with society. Hence, excelling solely in academics or sports falls short of holistic development. A complete individual should possess the capacity to connect with diverse people, express herself adeptly, and adapt seamlessly to different settings. Our music, arts, and dance programs serve as avenues for students to establish these connections. Furthermore, our students benefit from exposure beyond the classroom through field trips to a myriad of destinations, contributing to their multifaceted growth.

SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT

The landscape of the future doesn't solely encompass traditional roles like engineers, scientists, doctors, and historians. Instead, it revolves around professionals from diverse fields collaborating to devise comprehensive solutions using multidimensional perspectives. A historian now justifies insights through statistics and analytics, while an engineer crafts products cognizant of their societal implications. Knowledge of material science empowers artists to transcend creative boundaries. Hence, at The Foundation School, we've seamlessly woven design into our curriculum to nurture this holistic approach.

INTEGRATING DESIGN INTO CURRICULUM

Achieving excellence is rooted in cultivating interest and focused learning. At The Foundation School, our academic milieu is tailored to nurture and refine children's interests across diverse domains. Should a child's curiosity lead to a fascination with dinosaurs, there's no restraint on delving into the subject's depths. Our classrooms host libraries brimming with diverse books for exploration, while abundant computer resources fuel further investigation. By empowering a child to dive deep into their interests, they cultivate the confidence to explore any subject in the future. Learning at The Foundation School knows no arbitrary bounds; it's about fostering a lifelong passion for discovery.

CULTIVATING INTEREST AND EXPERTISE

Inquiry-based learning is an educational approach that encourages children to learn through exploring scenarios, tackling challenges, and dissecting questions. Unlike rote memorization, this method offers a more potent avenue for comprehending and retaining concepts. At The Foundation School, we employ this strategy to impart numerous concepts, fostering a deeper understanding and facilitating lasting retention among our students.

INQUIRY-BASED EDUCATION

While students might be acquainted with their parents' professions or those of close associates, the realm of careers is expansive and diverse. Recognizing this, our school extends opportunities for students to explore various career paths. Talks and field trips aimed at introducing a multitude of professions are incorporated into our curriculum, starting from Grade 7 onward. By doing so, we aim to broaden their horizons and equip them with insights into the array of opportunities that await beyond the familiar.
