We understand that these three years are those of discovery and experimentation when the children are engaging with a variety of skills and knowledge areas to explore their latent talents and passions. They are encouraged to narrow down the disciplines of study into areas they would like to explore further and possibly make a career in as well as those with which they would definitely not like to interact with in future. They are exposed to varied opportunities which help them discover their hitherto unknown and untapped capabilities and hone them to their advantage in terms of their academic and personal achievements.

We, at Prometheus, believe that it is crucial to build the children’s self-esteem and confidence in these years. In keeping with this belief, we create multiple opportunities for the children to discover themselves and build a positive self-image. We also aspire to inculcate the attributes of self-reliance, creativity, empathy, a balanced approach and most importantly resilience in our students as life skills which will prepare them for the real world.

In each year of the middle years programme* emphasis is laid on interdisciplinary teaching and learning and interdisciplinary learning is the process by which students come to understand bodies of knowledge and ways of knowing from two or more disciplines or subject groups and integrate them to create new understanding.

Young learners to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective.*
