Middle School & Secondary

Middle School and Secondary at Shishuvan

The Middle School section comprises of Std V and VI and the Secondary section comprises of Std VII and VIII with 4 divisions each called Karma, Shraddha, Dhyaan and Neeti. It has pre-teen children, not quite ready for their independence of a teenager nor totally dependent on their parents like the Primary School children.

The Middle School students must straddle the space between structure and freedom such that they can make independent choices and learn to take the consequences of their own actions. To enable this, the School Council membership is automatic. The students view the Council as a space in which they express and shape their voice. They share difficulties, discuss differing points of view, generate solutions and try to implement them.

The team of qualified and highly motivated teachers work to integrate learning across two broad areas - Sciences (Science- Environment education) and the liberal Arts (Social studies-Languages-Art). This is executed using Inquiry-based learning. The inquiry questions are generated by the students and the Inquiry Based Learning sessions are then planned by teachers ensuring the inquiry questions are answered to or explored by the students in the process of teaching learning. The learning process engages students by making real-world connections through exploration and high-level questioning. This approach helps the students to engage in problem-solving and experiential learning.

The Middle School and Secondary students work towards excellence in all activities and accomplishments through co-operation and the ability to compete responsibly. The week long educational field visits out of town and the local field visits ; Club activities; Sports teams; Music, Dance, Art and the Socially Useful Productive Work (SUPW) enhances the student’s learning, development and personality.

The students showcase their talent in the Annual Day, Sports Day as well as the Fair/Project Demonstrations held by the school.
