How different is the ISE curriculum from the traditional school curricula and
how does it help the student?
- The curriculum and teaching
methodology are delivered in a student-centric, and students share the
responsibility for their learning and with teachers as facilitators

are largely textbook-driven and teacher-directed and the students are, by
and large, passive learners. The emphasis is on teaching and testing, is
on the end product, and on the results rather than learning and the
process of learning.

integrates recreation, sports and life skills like Music, Dance, Drama,
Arts, Robotics Technology, Sports and Community Service into its timetable
because as this leads to holistic education without compartmentalization
which will create responsible and competent adults.
