We recognise that most of our students and their families are internationally minded – keeping options open and taking advantage of the best educational systems the world has to offer can be exciting, inspiring and practical.
That is why DIA offers its own curriculum called The World Curriculum (TWC).
TWC, designed by our education experts, is a broad, balanced and omprehensive curricula that meets the educational needs of every child and prepares them for further study. TWC employs a best of both worlds approach, drawing the best elements from multiple educational curricula available globally especially the Indian, British, American and the International Baccalaureate systems.
TWC curriculum is followed in all DIA’s from Preschool till Grade 8. At the Grade 9 stage, the students are required to choose either the Indian track (ICSE) or the International track (UK IGCSE).
Early Years Education in TWS is about creating a safe and emotionally warm environment to the children through fun and engaging activities. Playtime is an important opportunity to aquire social, reasoning, motor and cognitive skills. Children have the freedom to explore and learn within and outside the classrooms.
Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood
We strongly believe that Early Years Education is the foundation for the child ‘s lifelong learning.
Our experienced teachers have designed meaningful activities and games that make learning fun and enjoyable for our young children. The curriculum is based on personalized learning to nurture holistic child development.
Courses for students at all levels are clearly structured to enable students and teachers to clearly know what the learning outcomes should be. Teachers expose a student to one concept at a time. To ensure that the student has absorbed the concept thoroughly the TWC Point System® has been designed. Lessons will alternate between oral, individual and group work in a manner that ensures that students remain “switched on “and focused.
Students engage in regular assessment using exams that teachers do not see in advance. Accordingly, students learn more in class and have more time for relaxation and fun after school. The school follows a “no homework “policy till Grade 4.
Students who fall behind in their work are advised, motivated, helped, and mentored until they catch up. As long as they manage their own time successfully, students’ time is theirs. Need based time to time help is given to each student.
All courses at TWS are structured.
A system of academic tracking – the TWC AMS (Academic Monitoring System), a scientific method of detecting gaps in knowledge – allows the resource team to closely follow the progress of each individual.
Gaps are pinpointed as soon as they are noticed, and efforts are focused on eliminating them. Valuable time is saved and a gap-free, cohesive structure of knowledge is built in students’ minds.
The Student Life Team® at TWS works hand in hand with the staff as one team.
Members of the TWS SLT are appointed by the administration for their competence rather than elected by the students based on popularity.
SLT membership is open to students of Grade 5 and beyond
