Academics at DIS

The curriculum at DIS emphasises the acquisition of knowledge, understanding, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities for all students attending the school. We believe that every learner is unique and special and that they all have the ability to learn. We believe it is our responsibility as educators to nurture and develop every learner to prepare them for life. DIS curriculum promotes a strong foundation in the academic disciplines, a broad exposure to liberal arts and several opportunities to pursue individual interests.

The curriculum is based on the Multiple Intelligence Theory. Multiple Intelligence approach develops each student’s strength and creates a deep level of understanding that allows children to use what they have learnt in new and different situations. A typical day at DIS is a mix of academic and non-academic classes, sports, music, dance, art, hobbies, library or Computer.

Fully equipped class rooms with child sized furniture, indoor and outdoor play area and toys have all been developed in such a way so as to bring about the child's cognitive and physical development in the most comfortable manner. A specially designed Pre-school library is our strength.

Pre-School Daily Routine

Our main objective is to make sure that the child has had a productive day in school. We plan our daily routine in such a manner which helps us achieve this objective. The day starts with the Morning Prayer at the Assembly. Followed by child development activities ranging from knowledge enhancing worksheets to dancing, singing, drawing and painting. Songs and rhymes according to the monthly curriculum are also intricately woven into our daily planner. Encouraging children to eat healthy food in company of their friends also forms a part of their day. The day ends with thanking God once again.

The progress of each student is monitored through observations, work samples, photographs, e-portfolios and meetings with parents. We want the students in early years to be confident, successful and have a sense of self and develop their independence. We recognize that each child is special and unique with their own individual needs, abilities and talents. In this caring holistic environment, our staff foster a warm nurturing learning atmosphere in partnership with parents. In so doing, we highlight and celebrate each child's abilities, talent and success.
