Vidya dadati vinayam – from knowledge comes humility.
Learning is never complete and the true desire to learn is lifelong. This belief, the mission statement and the core values of The Shri Ram Schools define the learning process at TSRS. When a Ramite graduates, it is a confident, skilled individual with a sense of personal and community responsibility who walks out of the school portals. The starting point, from the day a child enters these very same portals, is respect: respect for the student. No child, no interest, no skill is inferior and disparaged. The learning process is such that it acknowledges the difference in aptitudes and abilities, and aims to provide reassurance to each that there is the willingness to explore and polish.
Directed by the academic parameters laid down by the CISCE for the class 10 and 12 board exams, the curriculum is planned and delivered after taking into account the foundation to be laid for skills necessary in life. Academic and study skills for the board examinations, the first tests of a school-going individual of his or her ability to handle a scholarly challenge beyond the comforts of the school, are well in place to take on this challenge. Teachers of junior and senior schools meet to familiarise themselves with what a child entering senior school will have to face and what he or she is equipped with up to that stage in his or her life. The transition in class and outside is made as smooth as possible.
Learning opportunities throughout senior school are varied. Inter-disciplinary connections, books, assignments, projects in class are teaching channels as also activities both in class and as part of the co-curricular calendar. Every individual on campus becomes a part of the learning give and take. There is no ranking of children; a child is not expected to measure himself or herself against another but only against his or her own potential. Everyone at TSRS, students and teachers alike, is respected for challenging himself or herself to strive for the excellence each is capable of in diverse fields.
