High School Program (IX to XII)
The High School Program offered at Edify schools is run for age group of students between 11-17 years of age. The overall outcome of the program aims to instill among the students an increased ability to reason, make educated guesses, sort facts from fiction, start thinking more abstractly, come up with ways to deal with hypothetical situation, begin defining their goals for the future, take opinions into account for decision making, understand consequences of action and develop sense of wrong and right. All of the outcomes are met through objective and subjective views gained through various subjects or disciplines. The curriculum strives to build a bridge of interrelatedness and connectivity among the disciplines to facilitate multi-dimensional thinking. The approach towards teaching various subjects is unique and includes making observations, posing questions, researching, planning investigation, making and testing hypothesis, communicating with evidence, evaluation of alternative explanation, establishing interconnectedness between subject and social aspects of student life. To promote holistic growth and development of the students they are introduced to a variety of innovative programs that go beyond the classroom and help them explore new areas of interest. The diversity of programs include – sports, value education, life skills, community service, visual and performing arts, DEAR (Drop Everything And Read), student-exchange, personality development, foreign language acquisition, etc. Students are also provided opportunities to develop good communication-both verbal and non-verbal through dance, dramatics, art and music which form part of the regular course work. At Edify schools, special guidance on career is provided by a career counseling cell. Apart from this a psychologist is in place to deal with emotional issues, body changes and self-esteem. University fairs are organized to make applications of students easier and ultimately resulting in best university placements.
