“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school” - Albert Einstein.
Nowadays education is being limited to four walls, books, pens, and exams, it has gone totally far from actual learning. Rote learning has decreased the actual spirit of education and made marks and grades the center point of the process.
Schools in India haven’t still come out of such poor condition and still remain to follow them. Only very less number of international schools are there to cater to the standards that is expected, but even these sometimes oblige to the rote learning system.
"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of minds to think" - Albert Einstein.
When children undergo this kind of education that solely prepares them to only write tests and crack entrances, they will not be able to handle a real life situation. Education is not just a key to get into a reputed college or any other institution. We acquire basic education from school. It is the place that prepares us mentally and emotionally to face the conflicts and difficulties that one might encounter during their journey towards success in the future.
To change this scenario and to brighten up the future of students, Campus K, a school in Sholinganallur Link Road has its theme based on curiosity, exploration, and imagination. Here students are not subjected to answers alone, they are encouraged to ask questions. It is an international school in Chennai and also is more than just a traditional school.
Campus k, the name signifies deep interconnections between the Campus as a space and its purpose of Knowledge. Campus K follows the IGCSE Board Cambridge International curriculum along with the principles laid out by Project Based Learning and Personalized Learning Plans to ensure that every student thrives to the best of their ability.
This makes it much different from other schools where we go listen to classes, memorize notes and write exams. As every child isn’t the same, their learning abilities also differ. We cannot expect all of them to learn the same course and be the best at it.
“Not every child has an equal talent or an equal ability or equal motivation, but they should have the equal right to develop their talent and their ability and their motivation, to make something of themselves.” ― John F. Kennedy

Not just all this, it is scientifically proven that an institute’s or school’s area also helps a student learn. The more nurturing and empowering the space, the more effective is the pursuit of knowledge.
“Art in the classroom not only spurs creativity, but it also inspires learning.” - Mickey Hart. The school’s vibrant, interactive and energizing spaces will enlighten the learning process and make the student feel more comfortable in the school.
