The Middle School Program is structured to meet student's varied intellectual and developmental needs. The curriculum builds on concepts and skills learnt in the Primary School. As per Cambridge guidelines, we ensure that the students of grades 6-8 are provided with a significant understanding of each subject and form a strong foundation. Once the foundation of learning is established in the primary classes, they are further provided with the required academic rigour to prepare them for the upcoming challenges. Curriculum content is delivered to our students in an easily comprehensible manner through our unique teaching methods. It ensures progression and continuity across various stages of learning in the school and incorporates continuous evaluation and review of children's performance.
For Grades 6-8, for current academic session, please take note of the following:
Sixth graders embark on a challenging journey in their first year of Middle School. Problem-solving skills and thinking skills develop a lot at this age. Students also start to pay more attention to decision making and to organizing ideas, time, and skills that they have previously learned.
Students in seventh grade are usually 11-12 years old. It is second grade of the middle school. Seventh graders are working towards developing certain skills by the time high school rolls around. Students in grade 7 start to understand concepts like power and influence, they start questioning things and don't take everything at face value. Students start to think about how current actions affect the future and may worry about things like climate change.
The curriculum promotes an enquiry-based approach to learning, to develop thinking skills and encourage intellectual engagement. Eighth graders use flexible thinking, like checking work and changing approaches as and when required. Students in grade 8, begin developing a worldview and a basic set of values. We provide a challenging and supportive environment, resulting in students who are confident, compassionate, passionate and bound to succeed.
