The curriculum is based on the Multiple Intelligence Theory of Dr. Howard Gardner. We cater to students with different dominant intelligence through our multi-sensorial lesson plans. According to Howard Gardner, each individual has a way of learning and engaging with the world, which is unique to him and this he refers to as ‘intelligence’. There are a total of eight intelligences:
- Verbal-Linguistic (word smart)
- Logical-Mathematical (logic smart)
- Bodily-Kinesthetic (body smart)
- Visual-Spatial (design/picture smart)
- Musical-Rhythmic (sound smart)
- Interpersonal (people smart)
- Intrapersonal (self smart)
- Naturalist (nature smart)
Our curriculum abounds in experiences that cater to each of the above intelligences. These experiences help the students to learn faster as it teaches them in a way that they learn.
Our ‘Beyond the classroom’ initiative also arranges field trips on a regular basis to planetariums, zoos, factories and other relevant establishments. Students at OIS learn from their surroundings, environment and nature while on excursions to botanical gardens, places of historical and cultural interest and other planned activities.
