" We know the secret of your success "

Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow” - Anthony J. D'Angelo

The School is a place where children are encouraged to say “I see it, I get it, I can do it.” Every day when I walk down the hallways of the school, we hear the chatter of young and eager minds, their shouts of excitement, the thump of dancer feet and the melodious voices harmonizing the environment and creating a perpetual energy, movement and enthusiasm permeate the atmosphere at Sorath International School. We have the vision of creating a safe and supportive environment for its students – to provide a perfect balance of academics, sports, artistic and social opportunities. Childhood, youth and learning should be a joy and Sorath International School strives for that.

Our Beliefs

Learning categories for Knowledge, skill and Attitude

We believe education is based on 3 things: Skills, Knowledge and Attitude. We feel committed in pursuit of excellence to impart the basic moral values along with the intellectual and physical developments leading to total development of mind, body and soul.

Explicitly teaching reading, speaking, and writing skills is the best way to prepare students for exams, college, and their future careers this has been long followed traditional method of teaching mostly adopted and followed at school level. The skill-based instruction ensures that a good amount of instructional time is dedicated to teaching students how to read, think, write, and speak in all subject areas. They are taught practical aspects of theory. Through explicit teaching, students develop the ability to read complex texts and express sophisticated ideas on their own. Skill-based instruction will move students toward independence and teach them how to think at high levels, solve problems, and perform on various academic tasks with great success.

Throughout elementary and secondary education, courses are designed around the world which is based on development of skills which are based on the information we want students to know. What our students learn in History, for example, is quite different from what they learn in a life science class. The content is different. Each class has its own set of facts, vocabulary, and concepts that students must learn in a short period of time. But what skills are students learning in these classes? They are expected to know a wealth of information, but what are they able to do as a result of taking the class? Skill-based instruction moves students toward independence as they learn how to make meaning on their own.

Skill-based instruction is about planning, implementing, and assessing literacy skills. In a skill-based classroom, a good amount of instructional time is dedicated to practicing, assessing, and reflecting on skills. As students practice skills, they are reading non-fiction texts, discussing ideas, and summarizing essential information. They are learning how to think critically, analyze ideas, and speak and write with insight and sophistication. The focus in the classroom is on developing students’ into independent readers and thinkers so that they are prepared for the rigors of college and careers. Content knowledge is critical, and using reading, writing, and speaking skills to access that knowledge helps students learn it and retain it.

An Educator’s role in skill-based instruction is simple: set high expectations, facilitate skill practice, and support all students so they can be successful. In essence, teachers become more like coaches leading a team. They introduce a skill, model it, and ask students to practice. After a few weeks of running drills, students perform and the teacher evaluates their performance. Then, they come together as a team to go over the results and use that information to draw up a new game plan for the following week.

CAS (Creativity Activity and Services)

Children acquire skills and knowledge easily if we can make the surrounding stimulating and purposeful for them. At Sorath International School we work continuously to create factorial bodies with 50 hours of practical training for CAS. Creativity Activity and Services (CAS) is designed to promote the basic skills, impart knowledge and create positive attitude among our students. The School’s genuine concern is to ensure that that the students have both emotional growth along with intellectual excellence. This helps in developing their self-esteem, self-awareness and self-confidence. Sharing ideas, analyzing situations and expressing them confidently are essential skills which are honed here, through Experiential Learning.

Inclusive development

We are very focused on physical development of our students and therefore lay special emphasis on both co-curricular and extra-curricular activities as it is of paramount importance to impart an integrated education to our students and making them future ready for multitasking world ahead.

Students are engaged in numerous activities like drama, singing, dancing, theater, art and craft, painting etc to develop articulate thinking and harness the creativity within.

At Sorath International school we try to reflect the kaleidoscope of learning, adventures, creativities and positive attitude and serve as a stepping stone towards the many miles stones for our students, to cover in pursuit of excellence.
