Apeejay School, International Philosophy

Education is preparation for a meaningful life lived for a purpose.

Every student has her/his own cultural experiences, skills, interests and potential which should be integral to the teaching and learning process.

Students learn best when the learning is based on life experiences and is delivered in a supportive and inspiring environment.

School must cultivate international-mindedness among students and educators so that they see themselves connected to the global community and assume a sense of responsibility to its members.

School must promote awareness among students of the inter-relatedness of all nations and peoples, and recognition of the complexity of these relationships.

School community must embrace diversity and value the integrity of an individual. School ethos must acknowledge and respect all differences of cast, creed and beliefs yet focus on unity in diversity.

School should prepare students for challenges and opportunities posed by the highly connected and fast changing world and equip them with right skills i.e. critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, communication & social skills, to be successful.

School should foster an atmosphere of academic excellence and encourage intellectual inquiry.

A thorough education engages all dimensions of human development and includes the cultivation of the qualities of compassion, tolerance, respect for the peoples of all backgrounds for the peaceful resolution of all conflicts, and the development of environmental awareness.

Quality education must be focussed on holistic development and unlocking potential of all students. It should develop students’ moral and ethical compass through a critical examination of beliefs & value systems to make them balanced and principled.

Educational approach should be broad, challenging, engaging and experiential, requiring the learner to take initiative, make decisions, and be accountable for the results, through investigating, experimenting, being curious, solving problems and assuming responsibility.
