The Shriram Millennium School offers a broad and balanced curriculum designed to match the educational needs of the children within the requirements of the ICSE, ISC, and Cambridge Lower Secondary and IGCSE Boards. Our objective is to equip the students with knowledge, skills and values which will enable them to take their school leaving examinations with responsibility and effectiveness, gain life skills for their personal and professional development and grow into young adults who are socially aware of their responsibilities.
A carefully planned academic syllabus ensures that the child enjoys the years spent in learning and discovery and acquires a sound understanding of concepts in Mathematics, Science and Technology, languages, Social Studies, Environmental Education, arts, social and physical education. The syllabus is enriched by teacher designed worksheets and subject integrated projects. Emphasis is placed on learning by asking questions, problem solving and through application. This is reinforced through curriculum related trips, workshops, seminars and films.
In the Pre-Primary years we follow a non-formal, yet structured approach to learning. The Class teachers provide a challenging academic program that includes languages, Mathematics and project work. Children are encouraged to explore the environment around them and their place in it, through projects which integrate art, craft, technology, music and dance.
Activities are designed to develop their fine motor skills and encourage sensorial development. In a nurturing environment, they develop an awareness of themselves as responsible, capable learners. In short, they begin the process of learning by loving it
The Primary School builds on the spirit of exploration and emphasis is placed on acquiring sound language skills, clarity of mathematical concepts and the discovery and understanding of scientific principles.
Through extensive project work, students are given an awareness of the richness of diverse peoples’ history and culture. The children acquire all the building blocks of scholarship, along with good study habits and a love for learning.
In the Pre-Primary and Primary School there are no examinations and teacher evaluations and assessments are continuous and ongoing.
Middle School – Classes VI to VIII: Academically, the challenges increase with the inclusion of a third language – Sanskrit / French / Spanish, the detailing of History and Geography as separate subjects and all the excitement of their weekly/Cluster tests and Checkpoint Exam for the Cambridge Lower Secondary students, at the end of Grade VIII.
Guidance and support through the transitional adolescent years is provided through an innovative, formalised mentoring programme. The school will have full-time counsellors overseeing the emotional needs of children and adolescents through individual case work, group sessions, workshops, family counselling, referrals and networking with professionals. The school works closely with parents to help young adolescents come to terms with all the joys and pains of these growing years. In the middle school, the curriculum includes annual projects; Dimensions of Learning (DOL) study techniques and programme to develop strong communication skills through debates, elocution, extempore speaking and drama (DEED).
