Kimberley is perhaps the first school in Chandigarh, and in North India, to offer an exclusive international curriculum. The School is affiliated to Cambridge International Examinations, United Kingdom. The curriculum and pedagogy focus on international perspectives of learning and teaching, while insisting that students fully explore their home culture and language.
Students work alone or in groups and within a modular framework – all guided and trained so that the end result is joy in hard work, passion in achievement and a feeling that learning is such great fun.
Some of the most effective learning does not come from coaching or lecturing but from “controlled chaos” where students get the opportunity of working together to solve a problem or achieve a goal. That’s when learning becomes special.
Why are we offering an international curriculum in an Indian scenario?
The school is deeply proud of its Indian heritage and, at the same time absolutely conscious of the fact that, at its core, it has global outlook and world-class standards. The school draws from the wellspring of the best of Indian as well as international values to mould the character of its students, preparing them to be outstanding members of global fraternity. The school also aims to finely balance the yearnings of children to be global in their outlook while retaining national moorings. The students are prepared to carry the light of the best of their national cultures and illuminate the part of the world they will inhabit.
The school has adopted an international curriculum because through it, the two-pronged approach of understanding and application can be best fostered in young minds.
