“The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing and arithmetic… music, dance, painting, and theatre are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment”.

Teaching students how to learn is just as worthy as teaching them what to learn. Mayoor School, Noida in collaboration with Mayo College General Council, Ajmer, believes in holistic learning approach by giving equal importance to scholastic and co-scholastic areas. Students are encouraged to think for themselves, ask questions and pursue their interests through independent reading and research. Our objective is to inculcate in our students’ ethical values, nurture critical thinking and develop a sense of global citizenship. Curriculum in scholastic areas based on core subjects focuses on knowledge, concepts, skills, and ideas.

The Scholastic area mostly includes test marks, notebook upkeep and subject enrichment. A test that measures verbal and mathematical abilities and achievement in a specific subject. Scholastic areas include all those academic activities which are associated with various subjects. It works as a mission to boost the intellectual and individual growth of all children.  Students are gauged on various features during the term for all topics, including oral and written examinations, cycle tests, activities and daily class performances. With effective co-teaching, students are exposed to daily lessons in encouragement, politeness, teamwork, and support without having to open a book. It is rightly said by Martin Luther King -

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically, Intelligence plus character- that is the goal of true education”.

Mayoor Excels In Co-Curricular

Students are encouraged to excel in music, dance, drama, art, sports in broader terms Scholastic aspects consist of curricular or topic-specific areas. While co-scholastic consists of Co-Curricular activities, Life Skills, Values and Attitudes. These activities transform and shape the personality of students by making them more confident and expressive. These activities are designed to awaken cultural awareness and the development of aesthetic sense. The art programme is offered through a multiplicity of Performing arts and Visual Arts. It provides students with an opportunity to engage in innovative collaboration, exchange, and express ideas.

Co-Scholastic is given equal importance in area of assessing students’ personality development. Learning outside of the standard academic curriculum involves a variety of activities that aid in a student’s overall development that goes beyond academic brilliance. The aura of Mayoorians is reflected in empathy, cooperation which makes the students ready for the obstacles of the outside world. It fosters the growth of interpersonal skills, self-assurance, and a feeling of civic duty.

Scholastic performance is the magnitude of student achievement across various academic subjects. At Mayoor we believe that both technical skills and socials skills plays a vital role in students’ life. We support spiritual development through teaching children how to meditate, yoga techniques, and prayer.
