Creating a superior learning experience
Vega Schools are based on a superior 3 in 1 learning method whereby CBSE is delivered through progressive teaching methods. These include experiential learning, inquiry based learning and project based learning.
It is for this reason we are ranked among the best schools in Gurgaon. The approach is to provide children with freedom in education within a prepared environment. We respect the fact that children, as individuals, are different from one another. With a focus on each student’s potential, we allow each child to explore, interact and collaborate with their peers for greater learning opportunities.
Some of the things we take great pride in are:
- Happy Learning
Our main concern is that every child’s schooling must be a happy experience. Happy children are successful and ambitious learners who achieve their full potential. We have created a safe and positive environment for our learners where everyone encourages and celebrates each others’ achievements.
- Progressive learning
The process of ‘learning by doing’ is at the heart of progressive education. Experiential learning is a method that helps learners learn by actively participating in activities and experiences. Learners can better understand a subject and its implications by applying what they've learned to real-life settings, reflecting on their learning, asking their own questions, and collaborating with peers and teachers. This allows them to improve their problem-solving, communication and investigation abilities.
- Intrinsic motivation
In progressive learning, instruction is differentiated, and each child is well known. Small class sizes allow for close student-teacher relationships. Teachers encourage learners' natural curiosity by fostering peer-to-peer interactions and linkages between learners and their subjects. Instead of traditional grades, standards-based evaluations and continuing assessments are used. As a result, students find fulfillment in the development and mastery of academic tasks rather than be driven by short term external rewards. Being one of the top schools in Gurgaon, we aim to work towards providing a learning that is not only limited to academic prosperity but also towards personality development and self-improvement.
- Collaboration and Futuristic thinking
We always encourage group work and collaborative projects. Collaboration involves deciding goals together with others, sharing responsibilities, and working together to achieve more than could be achieved individually. As an equitable practice in the learning space, teachers invite and provoke different perspectives and approaches to problem-solving. Learners learn to build on the ideas with experts and peers while recognizing and respecting opposing viewpoints.
- Differentiated Learning
We believe that each child has unique emotional, social, intellectual needs, varied personalities, and learning styles. In order to help every child attain optimum potential, we empower all our learners to become aware of their capabilities and areas of improvement.
Overcrowded and closed environments are known to impact learning. Open, ventilated and spacious learning spaces are research proven to support learning.
- Extracurricular Activities
A variety of extra-curricular activities help in improving holistic development, social skills, confidence and self-esteem, while having a positive effect on mental health and well-being.
- Teachers and support staff
A positive attitude and a positive relationship between students and teachers is the most important thing needed to ensure effective learning. Each child has different educational and emotional needs. We must ensure that a child gets the required amount of attention.
- Meals at school
A vast body of research shows that improved nutrition leads to increased focus and attention, and better classroom behavior. Healthy meals need to be provided at the at school in order to encourage learners to taste and enjoy different varieties of food by sitting together with their peers and teachers.
Various facilities in the school such as a school infirmary, counseling services, auditoriums and multi purpose halls, tinkering studios and labs, age appropriate indoor and outdoor play areas are a must for the holistic development of a child.
