Our Aims & Objectives
Education means development of personality which is not limited to intellectual training only, but it is the development of the whole child mentally, emotionally, physically, ethically and socially.
Dwarka International School believes that education implies every phase of the process by which it seeks to develop socially significant abilities and characteristics in its students. The progress and expansion of education as the foundation of social stability and intelligent citizenship is our primary concern. We provide our students with a perfect environment to bloom into successful individuals and guide them to select the right kind of experiences which will promote the growth of their personalities and at the same time make them useful members of the society. The school emphasizes on meeting new conditions of life and builds its students with an objective and scientific knowledge of economics and social fact and with critical judgment for life of liberty and responsibility. The aim of Dwarka International School is therefore to enable the children to live a full life so that they can offer useful services to others of the society in the near future.
With each bygone year Dwarka International School has attained a higher step onto the success ladder. The staff and management have worked hand in hand in order to realize the vision of the school and have established a unique system of education which enables the students to interpret, enrich and adapt cultural heritage to new needs and to changing conditions as they may arise with the onward march of the society. The school has always strived hard to give the students a richer and broader preparation for enabling them to become creative human beings, sincere and diligent workers and responsible citizens. The school has encouraged the discovery of new ideas and new ways of doing things and build up progressive development of science and technology. We extend a warm welcome to all the students and parents who have become a part of the DIS family in the academic year 2015-16. We always believe that with each new entrant we get exposed to broader horizons of life, different cultural perspectives, perceptual experiences which foster in us a spirit of positivity and a feeling of long term and valuable associations. We also take this opportunity to thank the existing parents who have always supported us in all our endeavours.
An overview of the School.
Dwarka International School strictly emphasizes on the moral development of the child. It believes that the supreme end of the educative process should be the training of characters and personality of students in such a way that they will be able to realize their full potentialities and contribute to the well being of the community. It is education which can impart the ability or power of better judgment and build strong characters. Desirable qualities of head, heart and hand are ingrained through our system of education. Students here acquire these qualities not passively or theoretically but by in and through activities. They participate being led by their self- interest and with an eye to the meaning in connection with real life. Acquiring life skills is thereby a very essential and integral part of our educational process. Our ultimate concern is not only to cultivate wealth of muscles, fullness of knowledge or refinement of feelings but also strength and purity of character.
Education at Dwarka International School is child centric as well as life centric. The curriculum of the school has been rationally conceived with the aim to bring the child into the centre and to help him growing through the graded phases of development, physical, mental, moral and social. The syllabus of classes I and II is activity based and focuses on the needs of the students and changing conditions of society. The curricular of Classes III, IV and V emphasizes on the theoretical study of branches of knowledge as well as nourishes the creative imagination of the child, develops free thinking, reasoning and judgment. The syllabus of classes VI-VIII lays stress on the principles of correlation and coordination. The curricula also includes various types of useful experiences like music and fine arts, physical activities and other necessary social experiences. The syllabus of classes IX-XI is in accordance with CBSE guidelines which emphasizes on the joy of discovery, of creative activity as the child gets satisfied with the travail of his own soul. In such a well planned educational system, opportunities are provided at every level to the students for the exercise of their reflective powers, artistic abilities and practical work.
Dwarka International School adapts a modern evaluative approach which is a teaching cum testing process used day in and day out to access the real growth of pupils. As per CBSE directive and within the boundaries of CCE norms the planner provides detailed syllabus. The progress of the students is assessed through specific formal as well as informal devices. Informal devices include classroom questions, class room exercises, home work, weekly tests and club activities. Formal devices include the Summative Assessments. However, students of classes I-V do not have summative assessments, they are evaluated on the above mentioned informal devices. CCE (weekly tests) for all the classes is held on every Wednesday the schedule of which is given in the planner. Parents are requested to strictly adhere to the given schedule and discourage the child to remain absent on that day. However only on medical grounds, retest will be held on the coming Monday. Club activities play a pivotal role in evaluating the child. Various club activities of each subject are distributed day wise and have been listed in the planner. Students should plan these activities well in advance in order to perform well. For classes Vi-XI, Summative Assessment will be held in the month of September and Feb-March. A Comprehensive Report Card will be handed over to the students twice a year. The Report Card will carry only grades and not marks as per CBSE norms. We believe the above mentioned criteria evaluate the student’s progress and indicate the dynamism of their growth
Our Partners in Education
Modern education gives emphasis on the immediate needs, interests and experiences of child and considers individual differences. There is the need of establishing effective parent- teacher cooperation. It is the home which lays the foundation and then the school builds up the edifice of the child’s life. Parent- teacher cooperation is highly encouraged at Dwarka International School. Parents participate in school functions, teaching activities and volunteer on special occasions. In order to make parents more responsible for learning and well being of their child we motivate parents to offer their valuable suggestions and give necessary feedback either through mails or feedback drop box. Professional parents are urged to share their valuable experiences with children as part of our Guest Lecture Series. The social development of a child is thus made possible by securing parental cooperation. We salute our parents for their unstinted support and cooperation.
