Primary Years Programme (Nursery - Grade 5)

The Primary Years Programme at Apeejay School International, comprises the essential elements of knowledge, conceptual understanding, skills, attitudes and actions that encourage international mindedness and global citizenship. These elements feature collaboratively planned units of inquiry which follow six trans-disciplinary themes. These themes allow ‘traditional’ subjects to be explored through interconnected personal, local and global perspectives.

Core subject areas including Languages, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Art, are integrated around these themes which make the programme of inquiry trans-disciplinary in nature, enabling the learners to explore different concepts across various subject areas. The pedagogical approach is focused on the principles of constructivism, encouraging learners to construct their own meaning and take the responsibility of their learning process. A variety of assessment techniques such as group projects, presentations, quizzes, blogs, etc. are used to measure progress and knowledge-acquisition of students. Together, teachers and staff create an engaging curriculum based on research, exceeding international standards.

These elements interconnect to meet the personal, social, emotional and physical needs of the child as a whole.

Primary Years’ Programme at Apeejay School, International Wing, encourages students to:

  • Become inquirers and thinkers
  • Understand international mindedness
  • Reflect on issues important to them
  • Develop better perspectives
  • Take action
  • Learn how to learn
  • Understand the complex world around them

Middle Years Programme (Grades 6-10)

The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of this particular developmental stage. Students will gain knowledge and skills with rigor in a stimulating environment that promotes inquiry and encourages development of conceptual ideas and creative thinking.

Learning and teaching in the Middle Years Programme, Grade 6-10 at Apeejay School International is based on the understanding that students learn best when the learning is:

  • Engaging and challenging
  • Based on rigor and relevance
  • Enhanced with collaboration
  • Empowered with feedback
  • Takes care of diverse student needs
  • Values and respects student voice
  • Encourages new thoughts, ideas and connections between other disciplines

All this is achieved through practice of innovative teaching methodologies like the Harkness Method, Flipped Teaching, and Socratic Seminar, etc.

International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (Grades 11 & 12)

During their final two years of senior secondary school, students will study the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP). The IB Diploma Programme is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education that prepares students, aged 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond. The programme is taught over two years and has gained recognition & respect from the world’s leading universities. Research reveals that universities in the UK and USA have a high regard for IB graduates, and the skills and attitudes developed.

The IBDP curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP core, comprising Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) and the Extended Essay. Through the DP core, students reflect on the nature of knowledge, complete independent research and undertake a project that often involves community service.

Widely regarded as one of the best pre-university courses in the world, the IBDP aims to develop students with excellent breadth and depth of knowledge. The inquiry-based pedagogy along with heavy focus on application, prepares students to flourish physically, intellectually and emotionally. The students will have many out-of-classroom activities and experiences, through Learning Enhancement Programme, such as theatre, photography, film review, Indian and western music, robotics, coding and sports like Golf, football, cricket, tennis, basketball & taekwondo, to name a few.

Community service in an integral part of the curriculum. We believe that inculcating human values is essential for building ethically and morally sound individuals. Through a number of programmes under CAS, students are encouraged to understand the challenges faced by the less-privileged which sensitises them about the importance of being compassionate.
