Middle School

Grades 6 to 8




MIDDLE SCHOOL
By the time a child enters middle school, she has built a strong foundation in basic science, math, language and social studies. She now requires a higher degree of stimulation and is ready to assimilate sophisticated concepts. Our school enables this through several avenues such as math labs, composite labs, practical work outside of the classroom using real world material etc.

The Foundation School at Gunjur has a middle school section from grade 6 to grade 8. Classes in the middle school will continue to follow the schools core learning methodologies such as experience learning, catering to unique learning styles, helping the child reflect, encouraging social interactions and allowing the child to pursue interests through projects and self paced learning. 

Focus Areas

  1. INSPIRE TO ASPIRE - Role models are very important during one's formative years. At The Foundation School, we expose students to inspiring leaders, their thoughts and their lives. This will help them aspire to reach greater heights in their future careers. We will also have lectures by various visiting faculty on subjects such as Science and Humanities
  2. EXPOSURE - The middle school years offer students sufficient amount of time to expand their capabilities. The school promotes this through a wide variety of exposures including opportunities to participate in several school events and visits to various types of organsations through field trips.
  3. PROJECTS - The school offers opportunities for students to participate in several projects that promote innovation and social causes. Students work in groups to develop these programs 
  4. PREPARING FOR FUTURE EXAMS - Preparation for important exams such as the board exams, require students to understand how to answer questions of various types. For example, to what detail should one answers a 1 mark question, versus a 3 marks or a 5 marks question? Similarly, there are various other techniques for answering questions that will help them better express their knowledge, and help them with better grades. A great foundation at this age will give them a leg up in preparing for any exams at a later point in time.
  5. PYTHON PROGRAMMING CLASS - The school offers free Python Programming classes for students from Grade 8 onwards. These classes are in addition to the regular IT/Computer curriculum classes that are held as part of the regular academic schedule.
  6. BUS LEADERSHIP - Leadership opportunities abound everywhere if one looks for them. At The Foundation School, we have introduced the concept of Bus Leadership, where students in the middle and high school, are given an opportunity to take responsibility for younger students, monitor them, and help them when required. Such opportunities provide avenues for students to inculcate leadership qualities through practice.
