A: Many parents were concerned about whether they will need to provide additional support to students who will be beginning anew at Venkateshwar Signature School. We would like everyone to be rest assured that all the incoming students are in very good hands, though our curriculum and learning environment may be very different from their previous schools, there is absolutely no need to worry about students being able to cope up. We are well aware of the differences in students' abilities and speed of learning. One of the things that make our practices different is that there will be no pressure on students for being able to recite facts or regurgitate their knowledge. Since our educational philosophy is focused on learning, the best way for parents to support students is to ask them something like "What did you learn today?"
A: Students will learn Indian culture and history through an inquiry model, asking and answering questions. Students will also be made aware of Indian history and culture in their other subjects. For example, in their Mathematics classes they might learn about Brahmagupta's calculations. In their Arts classes, they might learn about Indian Classical Dances. In their Humanities classes, they might be asked "How does Mumbai address water treatment and sewage?"Indian history will be explicitly taught through units of inquiry in the primary years and Humanities classes, but the approach will be different than the traditional approach of board exams.
A: Information and communications technology is here to stay, and there is no doubt that the ability to utilize Computer Technology effectively is an immense advantage to students, job-seekers, and businesses today. We will teach children how we use technology safely and effectively. The most important point is that we must proactively teach children to use the internet properly. There will be regularly scheduled lessons, at least once a week from Grade 3, about internet safety and security, appropriate use, and netiquette. Children will be closely supervised and every teacher is trained in how to use. Students will not be left unsupervised to surf the web but they will be closely supervised by teachers who have been trained in issues of cyber-safety.
A: We will use a lot of vigilance and the sustained commitment of a creative and well-educated teaching staff and leadership team. We need to develop a school culture of creativity, holistic education, and lifelong learning. We at VSS, create safe stress-free classrooms and spaces where students and teachers can enthusiastically pursue and develop their ideas without fear of failure or the pressures of short-sighted competitions for marks and results. It is important to recognize the role that parents must play in developing such exciting and creative spaces. Like teachers, parents must model creativity and lifelong learning by shifting focus to ‘learning outcomes’ than marks. If a student is passionate and creative about what she is learning, and if she feels supported by her teachers and her parents, then the good marks will certainly come.
A: Venkateshwar Signature School supports "language choice and multilingualism." Choices offered include Hindi, French and Spanish. The reason for introducing a second language is to ensure that students first develop a basic level of fluency and competence in English, the primary language of instruction at, and then formally study an additional language. We realize that most students and families that come to Venkateshwar Signature School are already multilingual and we want to encourage all students to develop their multilingualism. We also realize that families often have particular needs for pursuing certain languages, and we want to assist families in pursuing their own languages rather than telling them which languages to study.
A: Assessment is a natural part of learning, and the purpose of assessment is to help children improve as they are learning. In the middle years, feedback and assessment form a continuous process whereby teachers help students improve. We use rubrics to inform the students and parents of the exact descriptors for each level of achievement. We use both formative and summative assessment.
