“Mentor each child to be an achiever in life”
Discipline – Practice self-discipline, be organized and lead a healthy & balanced life
Discipline is a way of life at The Achievers School and not just preaching. The safe and free environment within the school allows students to feel and react naturally, yet the orderly ambience is conducive enough for a proper sense of direction. Mentors remain vigilant to guide the young minds whenever they tend to go off-track thereby shaping self-discipline in an uninhibited manner. A balance is struck between acceptance and boundaries thus making each student naturally self-disciplined.
Leader – Imbibe strong ethics, rational decision making and leadership with a sense of team work
Children are given ample room to hone their skills which enable them to emerge as an expert in their own field of prowess. Thereon, each child can become a mentor for small group of peers which gives them an opportunity to lead based on individual talent. Thus, in this era of specialization, each student emerges as a leader in his/her own area of expertise and simultaneously discovers and learns to appreciate the other fields as well.
Nurture – Discover, Value and Nurture the individual’s area of excellence
Children are God’s gifts; each being unique is a reason for excitement to discover and cherish. Experienced mentors can actually seek out the distinct qualities of a child by providing individual attention, nurturing through encouragement, love and guidance. The well-cultivated qualities can create confident young minds who excel through healthy competition, not with peers, but with the self, to become a master in self-actualization.
Learner – Take responsibility for learning, develop intellectual curiosity and become life-long learners
It is when the unique strengths of the child are identified and nurtured in the most scientific manner that learning then becomes fun. The developing child’s brain is provided, with the appropriate fodder that further develops his/her intellectual curiosity. Therefore, the environment, along with the highly researched teaching methodology, assists the toddler to develop into an adolescent who is enthusiastic, motivated and persevering, to become a lifelong learner.
Thinker – Be a creative, innovative and logical thinker
Intellect and creativity are no longer confined to genes. Intellect & creativity develop when enough scope and space is provided for young minds to apply analytical skills which they can further elaborate and supplement with meaningful comparisons. These skills therefore naturally create an explorer who can grow up into a wise and independent thinker.
Communication – Think, Speak and Write with precision, clarity and independence
Communication is a process of attentive listening, verbal and written expressions of thoughts along with appropriate body language. It is necessary that ample freedom be given to children so that they can convey thoughts in an uninhibited manner. Mentors prepare well-designed activities to encourage listening, initiate thinking and eventually get appropriate responses from the children. Extensive practice and transfer of required skills assist children to comprehend the art of filtering relevant information and express it in a direct and lucid manner.
Perseverance – The tenacity to hold on to your aspirations against all odds
Perseverance is a necessary factor that drives a child to realize his potential to the fullest and even take the most impossible challenges in his stride. Appropriate mentoring can create the right positive attitude in a child by making him a lifelong optimistic person who remains steadfast in his efforts until the goals are achieved. All these coupled with a ‘Never Say Die’ attitude builds the ample resources to make the impossible possible and therefore each child undoubtedly emerges as an Achiever.
Empathy – Understand others perspectives and grow along
An environment where a small child can find feelings being understood, love being reciprocated and emotions being responded in an appropriate manner is how empathy can blossom even in the young hearts. The emotions and reactions from every individual have to be understood and acknowledged so that responsible responses can be evoked.
Integrity – Adhering to principles and righteousness
Integrity doesn’t develop exclusively from desire. It stems from the daily practice of doing the things in the right way. At The Achievers School, kids learn right behaviour by remaining within an environment where mentors act as reliable adults and exhibit correct behaviour in daily life. It’s an environment where transparency and being true to the self is appreciated and approved rather than being chided even if the truth is an offbeat one.
