Our 4 cornerstones
The Flourish School is built on four core beliefs:
Every child is a genius and capable of changing the world
We truly believe that every child that walks through our doors will one day leave a mark on the world.
Whether it is in the field of arts, sciences, sports – we all have extraordinary abilities that need to be nurtured with love, care and support.
At Flourish, we hope to discover these abilities within our learners and equip them with character and a mind-set which teaches them to work hard, persevere, fail, learn and be the best version of themselves.
Asking the right question is more important than knowing the answer
In today’s world, the speed at which you can accumulate information is the speed at which you can whip out your phone and google your query.
Today, knowing the right questions to ask is more important than knowing the right answer.
We at Flourish hope to hone this skill within our learners via daily Socratic discussions, critical thinking challenges and trying our best to never simply answer a question.
Learning for mastery and not test scores
Learning for the sake of doing well on tests is a waste of time and resources for everyone involved. How much do you remember 2 months after the test? Exactly!
At Flourish, we will equip our learners to dive as deep as their interests take them. In subjects that they love.
We do not have tests at all. Our learners have 2 – 3 hour slots to deep dive into material and really master concepts and fundamentals, rather than switch context in short 40 minute periods when the bell rings.
Great education should not be exorbitant
At Flourish, we strongly believe that we owe it our community to provide our young learners with the best possible learning experience that money can get them. We aim to be transparent in how we spent the fees, in addition to being extremely cognizant of the value that we can extract from it.
We will actively look to delegate things that can easily be outsourced, instead of building infrastructure that will be used fractionally.
We promise that we will:
Spark the joy of learning
Your children will be lifelong learners that look at the world with curiosity, wonder and amazement.
We will not chase marks, grades and standardized tests. No mugshot of your child on our website for scoring a 95% in the board exams.
Instead, your little learners will learn to dig in, take stuff apart, get their hands dirty and figure out how things work.
They will learn to learn, learn to do and learn to be.
Kindle a growth mind-set and celebrate failure
We believe that hard work and perseverance is the only way to be world-class in something.
Talent will get you only so far if you do not know how to practice and work hard on your strengths.
Your child will struggle and fail many times but learn how to pick themselves up and try again.
At Flourish, failure will always be celebrated. We will all learn from it together and try to be the best version of ourselves.
Help your child find their calling
We strongly believe that every child in this world is destined to change it for the better.
There is no such thing as an “average” child. Every child is unique and has the ability to change the world in their own unique way.
Through a plethora of real world experiences, projects, internships, field-trips and more, we will strive to help your child find their calling in this world.
