Secondary School

These are the most inquisitive years of a child’s life, and we at Schola Nova not only appreciate curiosity, but encourage it. Our focus is on making them aware of not only themselves but also their surroundings. It is necessary that a child learns to interpret situations and rise to meet the challenges ahead. To engage their interest we offer a variety of programs.

Schola Nova is a selective enrollment high school and an international model for global teaching and learning. On any given day, one would find students of Schola Nova eagerly embracing the rigors of advanced placement curriculum, working collaboratively with their peers and teachers. Although Schola Nova takes great pride in its proven ability to prepare students for success in postsecondary institutions – and beyond – it is the deliberate attention given to the process of cultivating the whole child that separates Schola Nova from other peer institutions of learning. Our Secondary school curriculum encourages children to have a good character, to be self confident and to be creative so that they will grow up to be competent global citizens. Through a rigorous Academic programme and rich array of learning experience like sign language , french language , LearnOBots ,Public Speaking and Nazra that focus on specific domains , ample opportunity for both outdoor and indoor games and an emphasis on nurturing and collaborating, we foster learning, growth and preparation for the world ahead .

Secondary school to O’levels: Focus Based Learning depends on:
  • Personality development via programs like, Public Speaking, visits to orphanages, donation drives for the flood affected
  • Exposure to different cultures enhancing the acceptability levels towards different dialects by introduction of French.
  • Character building via critical thinking and problem solving abilities strengthened by the Robotics program
  • Compassion and empathy instilled in students by events like Dignity day, community service, sign language
  • Grooming activities like manners & etiquettes taught to students to turn them into well-rounded individuals.
  • Exploring hidden creativity by focusing on arts and craft.
Respect

Different people have different likes and dislikes. To emphasize that point, you might invite each student to share something he or she likes very much. That could be a food, an activity, a place or anything else. After students share, you might ask some of the students to identify things that other students like but they don’t like as much. Conclude the discussion by emphasizing that people should treat one another respectfully in spite of their differences.

Responsibility

Teach traits such as responsibility, fairness, and integrity through 20-minute creative lesson plans that provoke conversation and reflection. Thirty character education mini-units, created by teachers for middle school classrooms, contain critical thinking, group interaction, and application of philanthropic principles while students explore ten different character traits. Great for a year of Advisory!

Honesty

Honesty is defined as fairness and straightforwardness of conduct. Synonyms include sincerity, integrity and trustworthiness. They’re all good qualities to find in a person and certainly worthwhile to learn. After all, honesty is the best policy, right? It’s true. However, teaching that concept to youngsters can be a challenge. There’s a fine balance between preaching and teaching when it comes to basic morals and behaviors. That’s where useful and creative classroom resources can come in handy.

Kindness

Kindness matters. It can turn a child’s whole day around, and when you have children who are kind, the day is brighter and more productive too. How can we as teachers improve our kids’ behavior and attitudes towards each other and create a pleasant learning environment through teaching kindness? ideas and activities for encouraging kindness in the classroom are so easy to implement.
