Our curriculum and methodology is designed to sharpen thinking processes by building foundational skills. Students strive to enhance and apply their knowledge in a hands-on, meaningful way. This learning is not restricted to the classroom. It impacts the students’ environment, their societal interaction and builds responsibility and initiative. The curriculum emphasises the essential unity of knowledge, and promotes an interdisciplinary approach to learning.
Children learn better when they are taught in their ways and the ways that interest them the most.
All activities are an integral part of the curriculum and we aim to provide a plethora of experiences when exploring core subjects and otherwise.
Our curriculum therefore has plenty of hands-on experiments, where students learn as they play, are creative and engaged in exciting lessons. We encourage reading, over and above the prescribed syllabus and provide regular exposure to life outside of school.
BEYOND THE CURRICULUM
nurturing lifelong learners
Learning how to learn is more important than the lessons on the blackboard and copious words in notebooks. Curiosity, critical thinking and an open mind are central to individual goals. Our school follows different methodologies that provoke a child’s imagination and curiosity.
Lifelong learners, learn to reflect on their learning. Along with using it to their benefit, they ask: how will society be affected by the decisions they take? These, with personal integrity, and responsibility make for the global citizen which is our primary goal. Here is how it pans out for different age groups.
secure and fun
From Kindergarten to Class 4, the physical and emotional well being of every child is the primary goal of every educator during these formative years. The aim is to make school a positively favoured activity for minds that are just being introduced to routine and discipline.
The methodology is based on developing language acquisition, sharpening numeracy skills and encouraging enquiry for science and creative arts. Engagement is everything, so that children make connections and develop confidence to deal with the structured system in the years that lie ahead.
making informed choices
From class 5 to 8 the goal in the background can be distilled to assist students make a stretch, and help them develop interests that will guide them to choose their subjects later.
The core subjects English, Hindi, Mathematics, Science and Social Sciences are coupled with electives in the study of a third language (French or Punjabi) and several enrichment clubs and activities which they can take up over the year.
preparing for taking flight
Classes 9 to 12 Students are reaching a level of learning and personal maturity. The goal is to counsel and support them as before, but with a focus that now shifts to post-school outcomes.
These outcomes are both academic and non-academic, where professional goals and higher objectives of learning are considered. Aspiring sportspersons, entrepreneurs, writers and artists are guided and encouraged to pursue their passion with fervour.
option of an international curriculum
The International Baccalaureate is currently offered to Class 11 and 12 students. For some parents and students, the IB programme offers a choice that allows for greater freedom in combining subjects, and a formal, more rigorous emphasis on aspects that are otherwise imparted at Strawberry Fields. The system encourages critical reflection on school subjects, service, and activities. In addition, the Extended Essay brings out independent research skills that are needed for higher learning.
At SFHS, Career Counselling is more than just helping students decide which careers or subjects to choose. In keeping with the school’s prerogative of holistic development, the department works in synergy with the rest of the school to ensure that students experience various aspects of scholastic and campus life in order to make an informed decision for the future.
