It has been observed that CBSE till grade 8th is not challenging enough for students, leading to boredom and disengagement. The sudden rise in the study level after grade 8th leads to memorization rather than understanding, resulting in weak foundations. On the other hand, if a student opts for Cambridge curriculum, they may miss out on crucial Indian context.
An integrated curriculum overcomes these issues by covering a broad range of subjects and topics, making learning more engaging and challenging. It helps students develop a strong foundation and a better understanding of concepts, thus avoiding the need for memorization. Mayoor School Jaipur believes that an integrated curriculum prepares students better for higher education and helps them succeed in a constantly evolving world.
"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I Learn."
Mayoor School Jaipur has an innovative approach to learning that coincides with the growth stages of the mind that a child experiences through the formative years.
Joy, elation, laughter and glee are the first emotions a child recalls. They also prime an impressionable mind to accept a teacher. We call this initial phase of enchantment and bliss, 'Ananda'!
Create imaginary worldviews and explore outlandish ideas before sensibility begins to set in. Flights of fancy and dreaming drive the core mental activity. 'Kalpana', the innate power of the mind.
A wealth of experiences leads to healthy interest. This is the right moment for introducing elements of scientific enquiry and research as a growing mind has a growing 'Jigyasa' for knowledge.
The need to showcase skill and talent sets in. Performing to the best of ones capabilities via practice and perseverance enhances the mind and the soul. This phase of 'Sadhana' empowers the self in totality.

"In the future, the great divide will be between those [...] who can acquire skills and discipline their minds and those who are irrevocably distracted by all the media around them and can never focus enough to learn." - R. Greene
Student Development Objectives
Understand who they are and what they value, which is essential for developing a sense of purpose and direction in life. Identity includes factors such as gender, culture, values, beliefs, and interests, and it is shaped by a variety of experiences and influences. By establishing their own identity, students can better understand their strengths, limitations, and unique perspectives, and can make informed decisions about their education and career paths. It can also help students feel more connected to their communities and the world around them.
Find the meaning and direction of their lives. Having a clear sense of purpose can provide motivation, direction, and focus, and can help students make informed decisions about their education and career paths. When students are able to clarify their purpose, they are more likely to be engaged and motivated in their studies, and to have a strong sense of self and identity. Clarifying purpose can also help students develop resilience and perseverance, as they are able to see the bigger picture and the long-term benefits of their efforts.
Become responsible and trustworthy individuals who are able to make good decisions and stand up for their beliefs. Integrity involves being honest, trustworthy, and accountable for one's actions, and it is a key component of good character. By developing integrity, students learn to act with integrity in all areas of their lives, including school, work, and relationships. This can help them build strong, positive relationships, be respected by others, and make meaningful contributions to their communities.
The primary objective for students is to acquire the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in school, work, and life. Competence includes both technical skills, such as proficiency in a particular subject or task, and broader skills, such as problem-solving, communication, and critical thinking. By developing broad and deep competence, students are better equipped to navigate challenges, adapt to change, and make meaningful contributions to their communities and make progress towards personal goals.
Helps them regulate their behavior, cope with stress, and make healthy decisions. When students are able to manage their emotions, they are better able to concentrate on their studies, maintain positive relationships with peers, and handle conflicts and setbacks in a more constructive way. Developing emotional intelligence and self-regulation skills benefits in their personal and professional lives by helping them communicate effectively, make sound judgments, and build resilience.
Develop independence and self-determination for success in school and life. Autonomy involves taking ownership of one's own learning and decision-making, and it is an essential part of becoming a responsible and self-sufficient adult. Students learn to think for themselves, take initiative, and set and work towards their own goals. This can lead to increased motivation, confidence, and self-esteem, and can also help students develop a stronger sense of purpose and direction in life.
