Salient Features Of AIS

 
My Day Book :
 

Concept of Writing "My Day Book" is a regular practice for all the students. The idea behind this is to cultivate the habit of writing and develop independent thinking abilities. The students are required to write a few lines about what they did on that particular day. Their emotions, feelings, activities and any other important event can find place in the daily diary.

This is specially meant for Pre- Primary students. Every Monday morning, children are given 15 minutes to narrate activities done speak in public. It also helps the child in developing an emotional bonding with the teacher.

 
Field Trips:
 

The greatest possible gift we can give a child is the freedom to grow. Let the child head for the mountains if he wishes to touch snow, for no amount of reading or talking about snow will allow him the immense pleasure of reading to the top after grueling climb and experiencing fresh snow himself. Field trips are important as the world around true knowledge is imparted outside the four walls of the classroom.

Every year the school will conduct an Orientation where new parents and children would come together and celebrate the partnership between home and school. Parents will interact with the school in many ways: every month, parents will be invited to review their child's work and meet with his/her teacher/s through an OPEN DAY HOUSE.

Parents are welcome to spend a day at school and observe their child at work.

The school will conduct workshops for parents regularly on various subjects.

Besides, parents are encouraged to partner with the school by taking a cooking class, storytelling, assisting teachers, offering student interns placement, planning a visit for the students or in any other way.

Teachers/coordinators/Principal will be available for any kind of consultation or discussion with parents - at one day's prior notice.

 
 
Tuition Policy :
 

Since the school follows a progressive and sophisticated methodology, external tuition and coaching classes are not advised. In the event you would like to send your child for external classes on any subject, we strongly urge you to discuss it with the school in advance.

 
 
Financial Assistance :
 

AIS offers the Fellowship to offset part of the fees in special cases. Parents wishing financial assistance must fill up the form and comply with all the factors for assistance.

Parents wishing to sponsor children either in full or part, are requested to get in touch with the Director.

 
 
Bright Mind Shine :
 

Bright Mind Shine is a platform where students showcase what they have understood over a term to parents, teachers, and peers. Choice and voice is exercised as students pick their area of strength to present. There are three components to each Bright Mind Shine: visibility of knowledge (through charts), process of learning (through demonstrations), and understanding (through presentations and interactions with visitors). It is an opportunity to celebrate each student's learning which makes students feel proud and special.

Cultural evening is one such project wherein school intends to provide platform to school children to perform anything.

 
 
Buddy Interaction :
 

Buddy interaction is driven by the understanding that learning can take place independent of age and gender, because when you listen carefully you will always learn. A community is enabled by sharing competencies.

Buddy Interaction promotes an extended relationship between students of different age groups and levels. It makes children step out of the 'my class' syndrome and regard their school as one community. Buddy interaction essentially promotes strong relationships within the school.

 
 
Camps (proposed) :
 

Camps provide an opportunity to get students out of their comfort zone. The comforts that students are normally accustomed to are taken away and they must cope and adapt to this new environment.

Spending time in a natural setting helps students build awareness and appreciate nature better, which can translate into behavioural changes in their daily routine.

 
 
Students Exchange Programme (Proposed) :
 

Amicus has entered into an agreement with Georgea South West University of USA for caption subject. Exchange programs with other schools in the city, state, country, and around the world moves students from self to the world and vice versa. Students are able to experience different cultures, ideas, and thoughts. Through interactions and dialogues, students expand their vision of how connected they are and yet how to celebrate differences. Sharing their own experiences and learning from others keeps ideas alive and helps them to grow. This helps students reduce the fear of the unknown and allow them to be more competent and less helpless.

 
 
Funderstanding (Proposed) :
 

Funderstanding provides a platform for students to demonstrate their understanding to an audience. It helps parents to get an idea of the learning level of their child's class in each domain, without depending on a quantitative assessment in the form of grades and marks. This experience helps the child to build confidence since presentations are in front of a large and unfamiliar audience. The students become the ambassadors for the school as they showcase the philosophy and values of the school.

 
 
Internships (Proposed) :
 

The best learning is the one where skills are applied in a real life context. During Internships, students assume the role of apprentices in a professional set-up. When students experience a real life working situation, they need to call upon various skills learnt in school and develop those not learnt. Seeing the relevance of skill sets they learnt at school helps students to take ownership of their own performance.

Designing learning experiences where the students are answerable to or working for a genuine client’s specifications provides the best motivation for enduring understanding to take place. Enduring understanding takes place when a student adapts, improvises and multi-tasks between skills and intelligence to solve problems or create products in a meaningful and genuine context.

The focus shifts from developing skills to understanding work ethics in a professional set-up.

 
 
Learning Embedded in Real Life :
 

Learning is not done in isolation. Using authentic materials and experiences brings the real world into the classroom and learning into the real world. Students are able to apply a range of skills and content knowledge across domains. Authentic experiences establish relevance to what is being learned in the classroom, allowing learning to be deep and meaningful, rather than superficial.

Learning is superficial when information is memorized and regurgitated to pass a test. Learning is internalized when the student experiences and applies the concepts of skills in a real life situation. They become more motivated when they see the practical application of skills and concepts.

 
 
Making Learning Visible :
 

The overall goal of Making Learning Visible is to create and sustain powerful cultures of learning in and across classrooms and schools that nurture and make visible individual and group learning. It makes the complex world simpler and creates awareness of the school's work and the student's learning process among the parents. Making Learning Visible is NOT a 'reporting' but a sharing. Over time it enables parents to contribute in positive and meaningful ways for their child's growth.

 
 
Provocation and Installation (Proposed) :
 

Learning happens when interest is provoked in some area and a student is motivated to explore further. Curiosity is the first step that starts the learning process. It may be sparked by chance or constructed intentionally in a learning environment. Although children are naturally curious about many things, learning will only take place once that curiosity is deepened into interest. Interest leads to real learning. In the natural progression of learning through the years, this may be followed by passion that can result in self-actualization. True education should lift students towards that self-actualization, whether it is coming through dance, sports, or classroom activities.

The natural process of learning can be integrated into the framework of the regular curriculum. Exposing students to a variety of inspiring influences at every stage of their growth in school provides the “hook” that opens up the curiosity and potential for every child.

Provocation is the means by which curiosity is sparked. Exploration helps teachers to identify in what areas the students’ interest lies. As the teacher encourages the class to persist with an idea, an installation is created. The installation is the end product of their idea. Emphasis is on the process of creating the installation since it is this process that leads to meaningful learning.
