Walden’s Path | The Magnet School facilitates learning from Grade I to Grade XII. At The Magnet School, our intent is to encourage students to explore areas of interest so that he or she may discover what they really love to do. Students will be equipped with the skills to earn a livelihood. More important, our intent is to help them come upon the clarity and confidence to face life’s complex challenges. At the school, students will be part of decision making, learning to take responsibility for the community and for themselves. When they go out into the adult world with that sense of responsibility, we hope they will be able to respond sensitively to whatever comes their way.
We would like our students to experience the satisfaction and confidence that comes from understanding academics. We seek to emphasise the thinking processes that underlie the various disciplines. With this understanding, we believe, comes an appreciation of the beauty of all these varied and interconnected aspects of human thought and insight.
For this to happen, students have to gain a skill and knowledge base in the core areas of language, mathematics, social studies and science. Our curriculum includes rigorous engagement with independent thought and work, as well as routine drill and practice. We equip students to learn from a variety of sources: texts, lectures, discussions, experiments and observations. With all of this in mind, we have drawn up core curricula based on Cambridge IGCSE framework. The curricula give the teachers a base and guideline on which to develop classes creatively. At Walden’s Path | The Magnet School, teachers have the flexibility and autonomy to teach in their own style, while keeping learning outcomes firmly in mind.
Research-based frameworks, practices, and tools that promote outcomes such as understanding, critical thinking, ongoing assessment, creativity, and professional development in school and other learning environments.
The framework helps
- identify topics, concepts, and skills that are worth understanding
- frame goals that help students focus on the most important aspects of those topics
- engage students in challenging learning experiences that help to build and demonstrate their understanding
- develop assessment practices that help to deepen student understanding
ICSE / Cambridge IGCSE
Students can take either ICSE at Grade X and ISC at XII or Cambridge CIE IGCSE examination at the secondary school level and the Cambridge CIE GCE ‘A’ level examination at the senior secondary level.
Nursery – Grade V
We have adopted various frameworks and tools developed by Harvard University Graduate School of Education that enable us to look at teaching analytically, develop new approaches to planning and make informed decisions about instruction.
Grades VI – XII
Assessment will be both formal and informal. We also document the student’s work in a portfolio.
Classes are organised formally and informally in small groups of 5 – 9 students for a quality learning experience.
Admissions are open for Nursery – Grade III. Students can choose to pursue ICSE/ISC Central Board Examination or Cambridge ICE International Examination in Grade VII.
