We at Chitkara International School understands that choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decision a parent has to make. Before the parent decides whether a school is the right fit for his/her child, we emphasis that it is essential to understand what a school wants to achieve for its students and how it intends to do that. Following are some of the qualities we look forward to instill in our students during his/her educational journey with CIS:
Skills to Succeed in the 21st Century
With the pace the world is changing it is hard to teach children everything they will need to know to succeed when they graduate from school. That is why at CIS we focus on equipping our students with a skillset that will allow them to adapt to the ever changing needs of the world around them and succeed in any field of their choice. Our curriculum is built to give every CIS student the ability to:
- Think Critically
- Work in Teams
- Be Creative
- Collaborate with Others
- Make Global Connections
Learning doesn’t stop when you finish school. Or for that matter ever. That is the number one lesson students will learn at CIS. The project & inquiry based nature of our curriculum work in conjunction to create an open learning environment that fosters curiosity in our students and encourages them to learn independently from the teacher. These qualities will stand CIS students in great stead for higher education where the focus ability to learn beyond the classroom is what propels a student to the top of the class.
Ethics & Values
We recognize that good grades matter, but being a good human being matters more. Our Core Values will act as a guide for the actions of everyone at CIS and in doing so will be imbibed by our students.
Physical Health & Well Being
At CIS we give equal importance to the physical and mental well being of our students. In the modern world the children are increasingly shut off from the great outdoors and physical exertion. To make our students more open to physical fitness, we have regular sports and outdoor activities during the school and after school hours as well.
Low Teacher-Student Ratios
In order to ensure that individual attention is paid to every child we are committed to catering a fix number of students in a section.
Teachers are the most important in-school factor in a child’s education. In order to ensure that CIS always has the strongest faculty, we not only offer the salaries best in the industry; we’ve also developed the most rigorous recruitment process, that enable us to look beyond just academic merit to a love of children and passion for teaching.
Curriculum Development: R&D Team
Access to Chitkara Education’s repository of curricular knowledge built over 16 years from experience in higher education gives us a great advantage when it comes to developing a curriculum. Chitkara International School has been able to meet the high aspirations of our students with the rich academic curriculum. The R&D team at CIS is subject matter experts who work solely on the curriculum development and ensures that it is relevant and engaging for students.
