Navigating High School: Junior & Senior Divisions
Self-learning & independent thinking
The students are supported to take initiative in self-learning activities from the experiential environment made available by the school, be fully involved in all the available school activities, both inside and outside of school, and adopt positive attitude with empathy towards self and others.
Our High School students value freedom, safety, student leadership and the positive atmosphere present in their school atmosphere. They all are aware to have respect towards self and others, and while exercising democracy and understanding it’s all about freedom with rules, maintain school’s norms and code of conduct.
The teachers are flexible, understanding and encouraging, while the students are expected to collaborate and cooperate with faculty members in all aspects of learning.
Teaching at Nisarga focuses on the individual and encourages students to think for themselves independently in preparation for the world of work and life beyond. We value and strive to develop the skills our students need for their lives.
