GREEN WOOD HIGH at Bannerghatta aims to outdo current academic standards in the category of International schools in South India. Our institution promises a variety of opportunities to tap into one’s true potential during the formative years. GREEN WOOD HIGH has been cautiously fashioned to suit newer generation’s needs and educational requirements.
Our infrastructure includes but is not limited to:
Apart from the well-researched and CISCE/ISC curriculum, the school offers a wide range of extracurricular activities like Cricket, athletics, aerobics, swimming, basketball, Volley ball, Badminton, taekwondo, football, Table Tennis, Gym, Music, dance, drama, yoga and chess for a student’s holistic development.
As the child enters the teen years (Grade V to X), the pace of academics is gradually accelerated. The student’s intellectual, aesthetic, physical and cultural growth is strengthened. Academic challenges become the focus as the students start preparing for the ICSE and ISC Board Exams.
Throughout these formative academic years, our consistent effort is to prepare students for the real world. Hence, a host of projects and field trips further augment classroom instruction, where great emphasis is laid on the development of positive attitudes and healthy habits. Students are encouraged to question, hypothesize, analyse and be creative.
At GREENWOOD HIGH, we pledge to take education to a different level for our students. Thus, our focus is on unrestrained exposure through experiential learning.
Greenwood High is one of the few schools that strikes a perfect balance between academics and extra-curricular. Here, the management is in tune with each child’s unique needs and skills, and one that prepares the child to become a well-rounded adult.
Greenwood High ICSE School at Bannerghatta strongly believes that we are not born with a set intelligence level which cannot be changed. It is a continuous process of stimulating and unlocking the potential of all our students. The students are made to perform many creative and logical activities that challenge their brain. In this way, students can create new pathways for a better functioning mind and reinforce the old pathways.
Activities like THOTS (The higher order thinking skills, GAIT, CHESS, Art, Yoga, Music, Sports like basketball, football, swimming, reading, travelling) are all part of every child’s curriculum. Entailing these activities as part of the curriculum has not only helped students focus on academics but it also helps them with time management skills that is very crucial for later in life.
The perfect correlation between academics and extracurricular activities help our students to get better grades by teaching them character building lessons, teaching them lifelong skills and helps students develop social skills. While focusing on communication skills, we also aim at developing critical competencies such as collaboration, creativity, and collaboration in our students.
All these are vital to a human being’s life and being able to function in a real-world scenario.
The first few weeks of the academic year is focused on determining students’ learning style and intelligence potential. The school imbibes American cognitive psychologist and author Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences.
“We have this myth that the only way to learn something is to read it in a textbook or hear a lecture on it. And the only way to show that we’ve understood something is to take a short-answer test or maybe occasionally with an essay question thrown in. But that’s nonsense. Everything can be taught in more than one way.” — Howard Gardner, 1997
