Our Academic Philosophy
To improve quality of education in India, while national policy level adaptation towards a multi-disciplinary approach is being contemplated, this always has been at the core of our DNA. Over many years we have been a pioneering practitioner of this approach.
At TCIS, we believe that teaching a child to question, think and learn is most important to facilitate learning. Our inquiry-led and transdisciplinary education framework challenges learners to think for themselves and take responsibility for their learning as they explore local and global issues and opportunities in real-life contexts which enable them in problem solving and to take responsible actions.
Our pedagogy goes beyond textbook learning and combines the best research and practice from a range of global curricular systems, with a wealth of knowledge and experience from international schools and educators, to create a relevant and engaging learning path. Further, great significance is laid on assessments which is carried out at regular intervals on academic and psychometric parameters and forms an important feedback and improvement tool.
Our outcome based approach is aimed at creating well-grounded successful competitive global citizens combining academic excellence with creative mindedness and physical & emotional wellbeing.
