DROP EVERYTHING & READ
DEAR is an open space where our students and staff nurture their love for reading and broaden their perspectives. We encourage every reader to participate in book weeks, special readings, paired readings, sustained silent reading challenges, review panels and other school-wide reading challenges.
Emerald International School (Under the aegis of The Academic City Foundation) provides an opportunity for students to Make-Break-Innovate. We equip students with an array of tech and constructive tools to deepen their critical and creative thinking skills across science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) allied fields.
We believe in holism, and our enrichment programme allows one to explore it as an expressive medium which combines both mind and body. Students can choose to learn a fusion of different dance styles, including elements of classical dance, ballet, jazz, and other fluid dance traditions and routines.
At The Academic City, we created an engaging programme through Robotics by making learning and working with robots interesting. It enables our students to participate in a series of competitive robotics design challenges within the school and beyond. They can also collaborate to 'build & program' that will help them develop their capacity for STEM thinking.
Visual Arts Programme encourages our young artists to experiment with a wide array of visual media and techniques that foster creative expression. It sensitizes our students to critical interpretation and analysis through different frameworks and theories.
YOGA AND MEDITATION
We are committed to ensuring our students’ physical, emotional and spiritual well-being through our enrichment programme. One can experience guided yoga and meditation sessions that boost body awareness, flexibility, agility, and mental & physical strength.
ZUMBA & FITNESS
We motivate our students to dance their way to fitness through fun and engaging workouts, choreographed to international music. From burning calories to engaging in high & low-intensity interval workouts, these workouts boost cardiovascular health, balance, coordination and overall well-being.
Our gaming arena has a monitored gaming culture through an array of age-appropriate video games that provide educational and entertainment value. We help students improve attention, concentration, hand-eye coordination, and visuospatial skills. Through this programme, we provide them with cognitive and emotional benefits.
Community Outreach Programme includes voluntary, unpaid initiatives, like the championing of causes, research-based advocacy and awareness campaigns, service projects, and other activities. These enable reciprocal and experiential learning through the student journey.
The Mathemagics Programme inspires a deep fascination with the world of pure and applied mathematics. Learners are encouraged to probe concepts such as beauty, symmetry, ratio, vectors etc through hands-on explorations. Mathematical tips and tricks also form an integral part of the programme.
