In order to expand and deepen the skills and aptitudes required for a challenging world, we have taken steps to enhance the curriculum in a variety of ways by bringing in best practices from India and around the world
We, at the Heritage School, are culturally disposed to examining our beliefs and continually seek to evolve as a community of learners. As a learning community of Educators, we have co-created a research-based curriculum that places the child at the realm, and facilitates the child to develop a rational and objective worldview. The fundamental principles on which the curriculum has evolved are the psychological principles of learning, philosophical perspectives in education, demands of the disciplines of study, and self-awareness as an integral human need. Considerable and significant amounts of work has been done to fortify the Curriculum with best practices and insights from studies done across the world in order to develop in the child organic discipline, and human attributes of assiduousness, endurance, interdependence, and empathy.
The Curriculum values the Child as a whole, and not as a sum total of the spirit, heart, mind and body. The goal is to progressively awaken the child to self-awareness and consciousness. Multidisciplinary Projects that engage children in working with their hands, senses and bodies enable them to express themselves while being of service to the community as a whole. Thus, through a harmonious integration of learning across scholastic and co-scholastic curricular areas; attentiveness, a sense of deep observation, and cultivation of aesthetic sense takes place in the child, which leads character transformation.
Beginning in the early years, we focus heavily on literacy skills through a balanced literacy programme that includes phonics and whole language, oral reading, silent reading, vocabulary development (active and passive) and other decoding strategies that help students to master their own progress in reading. We have a clearly articulated language arts curriculum, which recognises that learning to read critically and write reflectively is at the core of the entire curriculum and forms the basis for critical thinking skills across all content areas.
From the earliest years through the middle programme, we collaborate extensively with Jodo Gyan, an NGO that has gained national recognition for its pioneering work in math education. The Jodo Gyan math concepts are grounded in reality, using narratives that invite children to apply those concepts to daily life. Resources also include objects that children can manipulate to understand shapes and measurements —and from the beginning they are encouraged to find multiple strategies for solving a problem. Parents are brought into the picture through extensive workshops on how and why we teach math this way—and the results are as tangible as the methods.
