Incepted in 2016, The Modern School, Faridabad is the branch of Modern School, Barakhamba Road, New Delhi.
With a strong legacy of 100 years, the school has thrived for excellence, with an eye of imparting quality education.
At The Modern, scholastic excellence goes hand in hand with character building. A strong emphasis on values and knowledge of our rich and varied culture blended with an entirely global approach to education ensures a holistic development of young minds.
Innovation is the primary driving force behind our school’s curriculum. What sets us apart from other schools is the constant motivation to do something better for our children. We firmly believe that a strong foundation nurtures future development.
We teach our children how to think and not what to think. All experiences are drawn from the real world. Each precious individual will comfortably create his/her own niche, will discover talents, nurture skills, find his/her forte and most importantly will be groomed to become lifelong learner. We perceive cultural, sports and student leadership domains to be as important as academics. The school has a capable and committed teaching staff that believes that effective learning can only take place if there is a harmonious partnership between the home and school.
The school focuses on holistic development of a child, for which it employs various innovative teaching methodologies and strategies. The range of views on a subject is explored through debates, which develop critical thinking skill in a child. Quizzes, puzzles and extempore are conducted to evaluate the students’ understanding and to improvise the instructional methods. Spell Bee is conducted each month for both English and Hindi alternatively for reiteration of spelling and for enhancing the vocabulary. Field trips are organised to places which have a significant relation with the subjects, making the learning process all the more interesting. Audio-visual aids are also incorporated in the form of incidental learning where a powerpoint presentation is run throughout the month on the smartboards. This helps in both active and passive learning. Experiential learning is preferred, wherein the students experience, communicate and learn about the concepts. A word wall is also created in each classroom which aids as a vocabulary bank for the students. The students and teachers add a new word with its meaning to it everyday. Role plays, Recitation and Nukkadnataks are held to enhance the learning process.
Education is a broad term that surpasses the four walls of a classroom. The core aim of education is to foster all round development. To fulfil this objective, there is a prime need of striking a balance between syllabus, curriculum, books and co – curricular activities.
A co – curricular activity takes place outside a pen and paper classroom experience. It gives the students an opportunity to develop a particular skill and exhibit their non-academic abilities.
A Chinese proverb states, “Teach me and I will forget, Show me and I will forget, Involve me and I will remember. To a very great extent, theoretical knowledge is enhanced when a concept related activity is taught. The various co – curricular activities offered at the school are Art, Dance, Music (Indian and Western), Theatre and Sports.
We offer various clubs which are part of regular timetable and aid in grooming a child into a confident individual.
Playing Sports helps students strengthening their immune system, maintaining physical coordination, enhancing body strength, sharp and active with improved concentration. We believe in mass participation, exposing our students to a number of Sports like Basket Ball, Volley Ball, Cricket, Taekwondo, Lawn Tennis, Skating, Chess, Badminton, Yoga etc.
Creativity and innovation is the essence of teaching and learning including in the social sciences discipline. Creativity and innovation bring about interest and motivation to learners, which eventually lead to learning. Gone are the days of a teacher delivering a lecture while standing behind a rostrum in a classroom in a one-way communication mode where his/ her words are words of God and students sit quietly embracing his/her words, busy taking down notes; those days have been replaced with more innovative and creative ways of disseminating, sharing and facilitating knowledge development in students. Our students are tired of the old school approach to learning a language – they want something practical, relevant and useful for their professional life. With computer being their flesh and blood; and living in the era where they are allowed to question on things and they are empowered to be partly responsible for their learning, creativity and innovation have been incorporated in my teaching and learning, assessment and supervision.
Every child has a different learning style and pace. Each child is unique not only capable of learning but also capable of succeeding.
Creating an atmosphere where children feel valued and secure and providing an educational experience which is both challenging and fun, is the main aim which is followed at The Modern School. This supportive and encouraging environment enables all students to fulfill their potential and become confident and independent learners across all areas of the curriculum.
