GEAR Innovative International School is a DREAM school. The vision of a futuristic education is based on first hand experience of teaching, training and studying leading models of education of many leading countries.
The vision of a pioneering school is backed up by a life-time commitment and dedication of the founders.
The CIPE (CREATIVE, INVENTIVE and PRODUCTIVE EXCELMENT) model of education has been discussed in detail at the NATIONAL RESEARCH CENTRE ON GIFTED AND TALENTED, UNIVERSITY of CONNECTICUT, USA and LWF-UNESCO.
The hallmark of Gifts and Talents development education is INDIVIDUALISING education, i.e to match the learning style and interests of each child with the programs and facilitating strategies.
CIPE is a LIVE Gifts and Talents development education that incorporates current activities and events into its daily activities thus making the curriculum dynamic and responsive.
CIPE model incorporates effective ideas, activities and programs from various quarters of the globe.
The school has built up a reputation by realizing ideas and concepts in the form of activities that have been very effective. Coverage by the media has highlighted the potential loudly and clearly.
Multiple Intelligences, Reggio Model, Innovative and Creative approach to program design, and principles and findings of Gifted Education are some major cornerstones of the CIPE Model.
Main aim is to promote balanced development, help integrate knowledge, skills and values, enable multidisciplinary, thematic and continuous learning and help acquire competencies to cope with Knowledge age.
Development of roots along with the wings is facilitated by a diligent string of activities related to the local events and festivities.
Students are active participants in the learning process. Teachers are active facilitators and researchers. Responsibility and interpersonal relationship are integral parts of a teacher's work.
Individualised self-work helps each child to identify his/her strength area and work accordingly for advanced development in that area.
The large gap between authentic knowledge, curriculum and implementation is avoided by innovations, research based teaching practices and higher order team development.
A promotion of informed, participatory, critical and supporting role of the parents help the school achieve excellence.
Teachers derive spirit, and enthusiasm from their leader, based on the 5 R's for teachers - Responsibility, Resourcefulness, Research, Respect and Reaching out to children.
Rigid boundaries of schools are dissolved to promote interaction and collaboration between real life practitioners and children; the community and the school.
GEAR is a model that promotes a joy of learning, satisfaction of working and a sense of 'purposefulness' in the taught as well as the teachers. GEAR is a positive energy, productive thinking and a 'feeling at home' place.
GEAR has ideas, plans and strategies to stand out as a unique institution of the world. Our children are the indicators of things to be achieved in future.
Our model may be far advanced compared to the mainstream as well as the so called alternative schools. Our aim is to set up an example and help people take initiative to 'change' the rot in schooling.
