Thank you for entrusting your ward to Learners Own Academy. Our objectives are very clear from the mission statement of the school. Indian Learner’s Own Academy is a family in which each individual matters and we strive for excellence in everything we do at school.
We believe that all the individuals have the capacity to improve and learn. All people develop at different rates and have expertise in a wide range of subject areas with unique learning styles. Our programme focuses professional attention on each student and challenges them to achieve their maximum potential.
The whole child is our focus, learning and academic achievement form a significant part of the development of a loving, compassionate, healthy, and thoughtful world citizen. Assessment of this learning takes a variety of forms. Formative assessment through daily learning work, class participation and discussion, classroom learning activities, project work and peer interactions presentation, quizzes occupy a significant part of creating a child’s learning profile. Summative assessment is made in the form of online or pen and paper tests, and exams. It helps in determining specific content knowledge, concept mastery, and ability to apply knowledge. Throughout the curriculum, we focus on the ability to communicate understandings and to apply knowledge to novel situations in order to learn problem solving skills.
All children develop at their own pace-a pace which we accelerate for all students when they are ready. We don’t believe that single sittings of examinations should judge the future of our children. Our rigorous approach to assessment in knowledge which cannot be put into practice is futile. So we believe in hands on experience and application of knowledge.
We are unique in this adventure of learning. This school is committed to continuous improvement. We hire only the most qualified teachers and seek students and families to join our community who are committed to the development of the whole child. We believe in hand holding whenever child experiences difficulties. Parents have been made partners in education of child and each make holder contributes towards enrichment of learning experience.
Our school to a large extent accomplishes this with a larger perspective of education. Our philosophy is of reducing pressure and retaining a student’s hope and self esteem, without which education loses its purpose. Parents are oriented regularly, CCE & SEWA have become regular part of learning process.
At our school, students are not competing with each other but with themselves by constantly raising their expectation and successfully achieving those targets. This makes them not only highly “individual driven” but also sensitive and empathetic to other’s failures, a very important factor which shapes them into fine human beings.
Our school carefully nurtures the tangible and the intangible strengths of each student, carefully preparing them to face challenges in a competitive world.
We trigger their curiosity and encourage them to step into unfamiliar grounds without fear. This gives a student an edge over their peers, as they are taught not to fear failure and that failure is an important step towards achievement.
As per New Education Policy we aspire to strength social, emotional, intelligence, adaptive and adversity quotients of all the learners. We want to curate, build and polish 21st century skills, design thinking application creation of knowledge and metacognition to propel high order thinking.
We make learning an enjoyable experience that can never be forgotten but provides points of reference in one’s future.
