The curriculum at Tree House High School is unique in its weave of inventive thinking, multiple intelligence and differentiated learning, we have taken the best practices from both progressive as well as traditional schools, and created a curriculum with student achievement in and out of the classroom, as the primary focus. Our learning programme prepares children for life; it inculcates skills of creative and independent thinking, and the ability to view an issue from multiple perspectives. The school’s curriculum framework allows children to continuously engage in learning experiences that encourage inquiry, reflection, communication, and application of their learning in wider-world situations.
At Tree House High School, learning is segregated into four different units:
- Pre Primary School (PC to Sr.KG)
- Primary School (Class I-V) which will grow into
- Middle School (Class VI-VIII)
- Senior School (Class IX & X)
In the Pre-Primary section (Playgroup to Sr. KG), the school admits tiny tots from 18 months onwards and we have the much acclaimed “Tree House” curriculum which is a combination of Play way and Montessori methods. “Tree House” as a brand stands for its best and innovative standards and is an ensemble for professional setup, trained and experienced teachers and the use of contemporary teaching strategies. We try to link the child’s home environment to the classroom activities. The play way and Montessori methods undertaken at ‘The Tree House’ helps children to develop confidence, self-reliance, discipline and also help to develop the distinctiveness of each child’s personality. Our team continuously works to bring in the latest whether it is in curriculum, or theme based learning or the activities which helps faster assimilation of learning and experience.
Overview of the ICSE:
The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination was set up in 1958 by the University of Cambridge Local Examination Syndicate to ensure that its examinations become adapted to the educational needs of India.
To provide effective teaching – learning process the Council has set up a curriculum framework, syllabus and assessment system to make the education imparted absolutely pertinent and contemporary, so that students find it exciting and challenging.
The ICSE is a school level examination presupposing a school course of ten years. The entire syllabus has to be covered in English expect for the other languages offered by it.
The system enables students to think beyond the syllabus and encourages them to apply these thoughts to their day to day living. This also enables them to look at multiple options at every walk of life and to weigh the pros and cons of any situation. As a lot of stress has been given to the all-round development of the child physical education and Yoga has found an important place in the curriculum. ‘Socially Useful Productive Work and Community Service’ also forms an integral part of the ICSE curriculum and is mandatory for each student to attain a pass grade so as to be awarded with an ICSE Pass certificate. In short, the syllabus brings up enlightened individuals with an all-round development.
