While K8 School is designed to prepare learners to embrace and overcome challenges that the modern world poses, it doesn’t disregard or neglect the principles and tenets of conventional schooling system. Schools have always been the go-to-place for developing the young minds academically and providing them a structured approach to build, polish and strengthen their knowledge and understanding of primary disciplines of learning. While the ways and means of accomplishing this objective of making the learners academically rich may have evolved over time, there is no denying the fact that all learners must be inspired to become academically sound and knowledgeable. No school can shy away from the primary requirement of being academically strong and capable. At K8 School all teachers and support members are encouraged to polish their academic knowledge from time to time so that even they remain at the top of their concepts and fundamentals. How else would they provide academically-enriching content and support to learners? Every teacher at K8 School is expected to consistently engage in knowledge-building exercises with learners, provide them personalized academic interventions and ensure that learners are engaged in an academically rigorous and high-performing environment.
Besides enriching the academic content of all learners, school education must also create a strong base for their careers. To make sure that this base is strong and solid, K8 School provides exposure to all areas of career-skills to learners. These areas include exposure to various kind of career-supporting skills needed at the workplace such as team-building, co-operation, communication and collaboration. There is also a concerted effort to ensure that all learners are provided relevant career counseling and guidance so that they know what to expect in a particular field of work. K8 school also believes that learners must be provided opportunities to understand and relate to the demands of other careers besides their own. This also promotes empathy and sensitivity towards other people and professions. Our career guidance and support wing also indulges in regular activities to know more about each learner and introduce career choices and opportunities accordingly. For us, academic enrichment must be supported by relevant and updated knowledge about how such knowledge could be applied to succeed in career and professional sphere.
To prepare the learner to become a good human being and cultivate good moral values is an integral component of the ethos of K8 School. It is one thing to be academically and professionally sound, it is another to be humane in your approach towards people around you. Our aim is to provide each and every learner with a teaching environment that stresses upon the importance of being kind, caring, empathizing and compassionate. Our teaching objectives also include the importance of imbibing the significance of honesty, integrity, punctuality, respect and tolerance, regard for elders, appreciation, gratitude and many such moral values. Our teaching objective drives this message to the learners in a way that becomes a part of their personality and daily interventions. Our motto is that all our learners will individually and together make this world a much better place for all of us and for the next generations.
Preparation for life
A combination of academic, professional and moral strengths is incomplete unless learners know how to apply and practice them in the day-to-day routine and in the larger walk of life. This teaching objective is aimed to develop in all of them, an appreciation for each of the other teaching objectives. Moreover, it is imperative to nurture them into individuals full of confidence about self, their abilities and skills and yet understand that learning is a continuous and comprehensive process that is life-long.
