“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
– Benjamin Franklin
The foundation of education is immensely important for every child, as it is here that the skills of literacy, numeric reflection, and critical thinking are nurtured for the future. At GDSPS, we aim to groom skilled, confident children who are inquirers, both within the classroom and in the world beyond. We address every facet of their existence – social, physical, emotional, cultural, and spiritual – in addition to academics.
- GDSPS aims at nurturing individuals with paramount values and multivalent competencies. As we continue our vision, a dynamic new curriculum for Montessori and primary students named LEAP (Learning Enhancement Awareness Program) developed by an accomplished team ensures not only academic excellence with pedagogical discipline but an entirely new approach to education. The best practices of an interactive and creative shift in learning and teaching are reinvented for the progressive engagement of the students. We believe that every child is special with unique abilities and learning styles, interests, and strengths.
- The school delivers Concept-based curriculum (CBC), which is an approach to curriculum design that moves away from subject-specific content and instead emphasizes “big ideas” that span multiple subject areas or disciplines. We concentrate first on the student’s aptitudes, then on the skills and knowledge she/he needs to acquire. Traditional education tends to value a limited range of knowledge and skills but more recent research suggests that intelligence is not unitary but multiple. At GDSPS, we aim to give students a broader, deeper, richer educational experience by recognizing each student’s strongest talents and building on them in order to ensure that all the areas of talent are developed.
The highly trained faculty at Salwan focuses on leveraging the potential of the learners. Creative tasks and assignments focusing upon capacity building and skill- development are conducted to maximize the learning outcomes. Stress is also laid upon personalized teaching according to the needs of the students. Effective feedback mechanism plays an important role in enhancing and improving individual academic performance.
The school curriculum is based on a harmonious blend of academics, sports, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities encompassing a self-empowerment program, with emphasis on character building. We believe that the most effective learning environment is secured when the best of traditional methods are combined with tested and proven modern approaches; where children are happy, motivated, challenged, and inspired. Children possess varied styles of learning. We, at GDSPS, seek to adapt our teaching methods to suit individual needs. The institution believes strongly in the benefits of a broad education system through which individual strengths can be discovered and nurtured.
