Beyond Classroom Boundaries
In our premises, education goes beyond the four walls of the school. We believe education is a lifelong process that should also build in student’s strength that would stand them in good stead through life.
We aim to give our students values that would help them to be self-reliant in their decisions, responsive to changes in the environment and circumstances, develop the ability of taking calculated risks where required, manage complexity, be self-directed, creative, ever- curious and sound in reasoning.
Learning here is developed by way of participation and unconventional modes using practical, visuals, enactment, web-based themes, projects, presentations, experimentation, problem-solving, etc. which attract the tender minds. These hands-on activities, regular reinforcements and exploratory methods of learning not only makes it exciting but also yields better results. Learning with understanding creates interest and inquisitiveness in them and at the end, children learn to enjoy learning without the burden scores.
Children acquire skills and knowledge easily if we can make the surrounding stimulating and purposeful.Students need to be provided with a platform to think, express, and exhibit their skills. TreeHouse Kondhwa has taken education beyond the classroom boundaries and tried to reflect the kaleidoscope of learning, adventure, creativities and positive approach of young minds through various academic activities. “Knowledge is limited, imagination encircles the world”.
The need for imagination, the quest for knowledge – these are the three forces which are the very nerve of education. At TreeHouse Kondhwa, we aim to instill in students the ability and conviction to realize their full potential and excel anywhere in the world. We believe that each child is unique and has infinite potential. Wednesday activities like: Cooking without fire, mental math, spellathon, storytelling, recitation, etc. provide ample opportunities to the children to showcase their talent individually and as a team. We also believe that working in a team towards common goals furthers increase this potential.Multiple opportunities for students develop distinctive identities as well as help them discover and own their individual roles within the group.
The unique method of introducing concepts through “Socio Democratic Plays” to elaborate and explore daily scenarios involves complex play abilities where the very young children through pretend play, interact with their world and express their expectations from the world. They learn and understand more about their everyday life and encounters with other people which help them to be aware and sensitise them to the needs of other people.
“Emon deshti kothao khuje pabe nako tumi, shakol desher rani she je amar janmo bhumi” (You will not find a country like mine, she is a queen of queens amongst all the nations of the world). – Rabindra Nath Tagore.
We take pride in our diversity and celebrate each festival with equal fervor and gusto. The most important religion for us comprises of – Respect, Humanity and Brotherhood. Inculcating values steeped in our rich culture and secular traditions and love for country is an integral part of our curriculum. At the same time, we ensure that the children uphold the spirit of humanity and grow up to the philosophy of –“Vasudeiva Kutumbhakam” (the one world family).
Curriculum & Affiliation
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.
The school’s curricular framework as per IGSCE allows children to continuously engage in learning experiences that encourage inquiry, reflection, communication and application of their learning in wider-world situations. The internal curriculum comprises of three inter-related components:
