At ASPIRE, we believe learning needs to be fun and engaging. Our teachers do not merely impart knowledge but also mentor students, helping them discover their imagination, creativity and self-identity, as it builds and unfolds through the school years. Education is not just about covering the syllabus but about embarking on a continuous adventure of learning and playing with ideas.
ASPIRE wants to create an environment where both students and teachers feel that expanding one’s horizons is fun, and that taking an educational risk is something worth doing. Children should have intellectual fun, be excited by ideas, and challenged to acquire new knowledge. Cramming for exams and the fear of failure are old-school methods which have no place in today’s world. ASPIRE brings new age delivery of education that promotes learning without compromising on inculcating a spirit of competition.
The school only deliver International (IGCSE) syllabi, 1st International School in Nagpur with IGCSE syllabus delivered in a student friendly manner with focus on enhancing understanding and retention. In academic year 2018-2019, the school offers admission for Nursery to Grade 9 and more grades will be added each year.
We expect our students to demonstrate age-appropriate, mature behavior. Learning respect, integrity and accountability are as much a part of our curriculum as academic subjects.
IGCSE focuses on knowledge and understanding of the subject from first principles. It focuses on learning concepts and applying them to real life scenarios, rather than just studying for marks.
The IGCSE is a globally recognised qualification taken at class 10. A student who has done his/her early schooling from any other board can join the IGCSE programme at the class 9 level.
IGCSE is a comprehensive two years program spread over 9th and 10th Grades with final examinations offered every year in March, May and November. Like other modern programme, IGCSE offers a wide range of subjects and encourages high academic standards through a practical approach to teaching and learning. Assessment is not limited to conventional written papers and they consist of variety of test e.g. oral and listening test. The focus is on all-round development of child and to test student knowledge and not their memory or speed. Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) conducts the assessment.
IGCSE is a balanced curriculum with a flexible course of study. There are six Subject Groups in IGCSE with several subjects to choose from each group. For completing the IGCSE programme, one must take English and four other subjects at least.
