Company Profile: The Heritage School (THS)

 

The Heritage School (THS) is an experiential learning school focused on deeper, authentic and inter-disciplinary learning. Based out of the National Capital Region of New Delhi, has over 6200+ students and 650+ teachers across its 3 campuses. Although THS is just 13 years young, it is consistently been ranked among top 10 day-boarding schools in India. Known for its progressive pedagogy and community bound curriculum, THS is also one of the few inclusive schools in India with a well-integrated special needs program.

Although THS offers 3 curriculums (National Board, IGCSE and IBDP), it attempts to be curriculum agnostic through its own organically developed curriculum that stretches the boundaries of prescribed national and international curriculums.

Being an experiential Learning School, the 3 R we emphasize on are: Relationships, Relevance & Rigor (in the same order). We are deeply inspired and committed to the philosophies of Kurt Han, Vygotsky, Rudolf Steiner, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi, J Krishnamurthy etc. Our curriculum has been designed and curated organically over the years and they are some of these core learning principles – for our Students, Parents and Teachers.

Our learning principles include: Children Learn by Doing Connected to the real world through community bound projects Content is an excuse to build to Craftsmanship, Culture and Character Productive and Creative work as medium of teaching and learning Children as active partners in learning Real freedom, empowerment and citizenship through classroom pedagogy and corridor culture Children learn from each other.
