“Children starting school today, will enter careers that do not yet exist, using technology that hasn’t been invented yet.”
The purpose of schools is to prepare children for life. We, at Modern School, have built our core exactly around that mission – ‘Education for Life’.
At Modern School, the purpose of education is not mere passing of exams. We focus on what the child ‘can do’ rather than what the child ‘can recall’. We are building in our children the right capacities, skills, attitudes and values to lead a happy life. The role of education at Modern School is to develop lifelong learners and thinkers who are courageous, compassionate and reflective.
The IB and Vidyatree curriculum focuses on developing 5 skills and 10 attributes among children. The 5 skills include Self Management Skills, Communication Skills, Research Skills, Social Skills and Thinking Skills. The 10 attributes include Enquirer, Thinker, Knowledgeable, Courageous, Principled, Communicator, Open Minded, Caring, Balanced and Reflective.
