Our World is Different
A new genteel world conceptualised by the go getters
The early years of learning are made student friendly. Students of Standard I – V carry minimum text books and note books to the school. They are not only freed from the heavy burden of books but also from swallowing heavy subjects by cramming or by the force of tests. A concept is taught for a month and the student is thus gradually introduced to the concept; this helps perfect assimilation wherein the learning process becomes devoid of strain and stress. A special feature at New Horizon Gurukul is the one-to-one relationship between the teacher and the taught. With a lot of patience, care and concern, the teacher makes the classes interesting and inspiring. The classrooms are not characterized by monotonous monologues, but by highly interactive sessions. Digital classrooms have been setup to make the classroom sessions more interactive and interesting to lay sound foundation for understanding difﬁcult concepts.
