Our Pedagogy

Our teaching methodologies incorporate the best of various systems, from ancient traditions like outdoor learning to the most modern experiential learning approaches. Our teaching methodologies focus on the dynamic combination of knowledge, skills, creative thought and international-mindedness. The sources of learning are varied - reading, field trips, guest talks, observations, discussions, debates, research projects, presentations and hands-on experiences. Our international curricular standards create a collaborative work environment that nurture intellectual diversity and prepare students for some of the best institutions of higher learning.

The tasks our students do in class incorporate the Multiple Intelligences- Verbal, Mathematical, Visual Spatial, Kinesthetic, Interpersonal, Intra personal, Musical, Naturalist and /or Existential.

Our teachers provide effective help or 'scaffolding' to learners when they face difficulty. We aim to provide taxonomical depth of understanding in class, namely, Knowledge, Understanding, Application, Analyses, Syntheses, Evaluation and Creation.

The Curriculum

NPS International School offers two exciting Early Years learning Programmes, the Montessori and the Kindergarten for children between ages 3 to 6.

An integrated global curriculum is offered from grades I-VIII and is based on the requirements of both Indian and international education systems. While this is geared essentially to the needs of the students in the primary and middle schools, the focus in the secondary school is on achieving important, externally recognised standards.

Students from grades I to VIII acquire skill sets and a knowledge domain that prepares them for entry into either the international IGCSE (International Cambridge Certification) or CBSE International. Both these Programmes prepare them for more advanced study Programmes such as the CBSE (Senior secondary), AICE (Advanced International Certificate of Education) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBD) Programme.

The curriculum encompasses core subjects i.e. English, Science, Mathematics, Social Studies and Languages in addition to subjects like Computer Science, Art and Design, Music (Western and Indian), Dance, Drama and Physical education. Specialist teachers provide instruction and guidance in the latter group.

Language options include English, French, Spanish and Hindi. Other languages like Korean, Japanese, Tamil would be offered if the numbers of students make it viable.

NPS International School is committed to integrating modern information technology into the middle and senior years curriculum.

The ECA Programme is considered an extension of the Foundation Physical Education and Arts Curriculum at NPS International School. The Programmes and activities are typically offered after school for a duration of one term (10 - 12 weeks) and have a separate activity fee.
