What makes Rato Bangala standout
We motivate students to be life-long learners. We believe that academic excellence should go hand in hand with social and emotional growth. With its rigorous and stimulating curriculum, we help to develop confident and articulate individuals who are committed to justice and development.
We believe that experiential learning is the best mode of learning for children. Working and interacting with the material and collaborating with people helps them understand concepts deeply. These experiences help them make sense of the world and prepare them for life.
Thus, the Rato Bangala Approach focuses on:
Nurturing Critical Thinkers
The rich experiences that form the learning activities across subject areas in the field are designed to teach students to think critically.
Developing Life-long learners
We motivate our students and teachers to be life-long learners by recognizing individual aptitudes and strengths. We consider the interests of the students when designing the lessons. The emergent nature of the curriculum provides opportunities for teachers to learn along with the children.
The developmental-interaction approach pioneered at Bank Street, guides our curriculum and practice. Children grow socially, emotionally, and cognitively through diverse and nurturing experiences when they engage with the material, reflect on ideas, and interact with people.
Project-based learning, Material Rich Classrooms, and Field trips
Project-based learning enables students to become aware of real-world issues and solve problems. A multiplicity of skills are honed as students plan, research, engage, write, present, and publish their projects. A material-rich environment provides overall learning opportunities for children. Field trips provide opportunities for students to immerse and learn from our rich geography, climate, culture, and history.
The school believes that academic excellence cannot happen in the absence of social and emotional learning. Curriculum planning is done with social-emotional learning as a frame so lifelong competencies are developed and nurtured.
Service Learning is an intrinsic part of the school's learning program. Students are involved in community service from Grades I through XII.
Parents as Partners
We have observed that it is essential for children to have supportive parents who believe in the philosophy of the school to enable them to reach their academic and social potential. Therefore, Rato Bangala works very closely with parents to achieve the shared goal of educating our children.
Teachers and Staff Members as Learners
We believe in lifelong learning and our faculty is provided with continuous professional development opportunities. Our teachers and staff members are experts in their respective fields and are committed to providing excellence
