Philosophy

Each child is unique and is treated differently. One method of guiding and disciplining may work for one child, but not for another. When your child socializes with other children in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment it will aid in enhancing:

  • Social skills
  • Physical development
  • Emotional development
  • Creativity
  • Cognitive development

Each child is special and unique;children are special in their own way and they grow and develop through universal stages at their own pace.

Our students do not experience the tedium and frustration of typical readiness program. We encourage the students to discover the joy and fulfillment that comes through the creative process. Our role is to safeguard the children in the present and to prepare them for the future. In doing this, we provide positive modelling and guidance and we respect and acknowledge each other’s feelings.

Guidance and Discipline philosophy

We believe that children should be treated with respect and that the child’s self image is the most important part of the learning process. Children need to perceive themselves as worthwhile, capable and significant, and therefore their experiences should be positive and reinforcing. By allowing such experiences to occur, they will develop self-confidence and high self-esteem. It is also important that we as caregivers communicate acceptance and allow a child to develop a sense of belonging.

Children must be allowed to make mistakes. This is all part of the learning process. As a caregiver, it is our responsibility to listen and acknowledge children’s feelings and frustrations and to offer calm positive guidance when situations arise. Developmentally appropriate expectations and limits are set. One must remember to be firm, to be kind; but to look at what the “real” problem is. Under no circumstance do we physically or emotionally abuse a child.

Rathinam International Public School is committed to cultivating curiosity, excellence, and creativity.

Our students learn how to take risks, fail, persist, and succeed. The average class size is 20, and the learning environment is interactive and inclusive. In every class, students share their opinions. They speak up. They learn from their teachers — and from one another.

Our academic program offers a breadth and depth of study. Guided by thoughtful, engaged instructors, Ripscions push themselves intellectually and form deep bonds with their classmates — whether they’re discussing environmental issues, examining global trends, or analyzing literature.

Ripscions develop clarity of thought, confidence, and facility in expressing ideas, artistic and aesthetic sensitivity. Our students leave RPS with a commitment to public service and environmental stewardship, informed by a greater understanding of themselves and their role in a global society.

1Pre-School

Our main focus is to develop adequate muscular coordination and basic motor skills, to develop good health habits, to help the child understand, accept and control feelings and emotions, to motivate group participation by providing opportunities to think and create. Children are allowed to explore and discover freely and express their interest and fascination to their new discovery.

2Kindergarten

Our multi-dimensional approach enhances optimal child development and helps our children grow as intellectual, confidence and healthy individuals. Our creative curriculum and specialized method of teaching enhances cognitive and emotional development, communication , knowledge and understanding.

3Grade 1 to 10

We emphasize on reading , writing and arithmetic skills. Exploration and discovery is the method of our teaching, to help students learn conceptually. Students are given ample opportunity to work together, discuss possible solutions and speculate about theories. They are encouraged to look at many possible ways to solve a problem. The outcome is more learning, new ideas and curiosity satisfaction.

Children learn about the values of learning at this age of self discovery. The students work along in small and large groups to address the differing needs of students and explore facts. They are given opportunities to understand, experiment in broader dimension to apply their knowledge to solve problems.

The institutional life of young people is interesting and successful only if there is purpose and integrity associated with education. This can happen when students are considered as resources. At RPS, channelizing of a student and resources happens by emphasizing on twin objectives.

1Strong academic foundation:

Language skills, Environmental study and Numeric Talent

2Strong social foundation:

Responsive class rooms – manners, discipline, ethics

Culture cohesive group – More effective in enhancing individual performance and group productivity

Leaders of tomorrow – Evolving children into culturally civilized and compassionate human beings

3Our Teaching Methodology:

Children are naturally curious. They love to explore experiment, discover, touch and ask questions. What we do is teach them in a manner that hooks into this natural desire to learn and use methods that encourage, rather than dampen children’s enthusiasm.

Learning styles research tells us that children learn in many ways. Visual learners watch closely and like to draw and play with shapes and puzzles. Auditory learners understand ideas and concepts because they remember information they have heard, follow spoken directions well and remember songs easily.

Although all children learn through touch, some learn especially well through touch and movement (tactile/kinetic learners). Some children like structure and some learn more easily in an unstructured environment. We are aware of learning differences and offer a variety of activities and experiences.
