Through the use of dynamic teaching techniques and expert facilitation, our school cultivates independent learners who consistently exceed the expectations of the core curriculum and achieve recognition at national and international levels.
SOS's blended learning atmosphere lets students learn from interactive online content and participate in classroom discussions and direct instruction, allowing them to improve their digital literacy and self-directed learning capabilities.
SOS employs Google Classroom as its Learning Management System (LMS) to support blended, personalized, and differentiated learning, with an emphasis on developing innate curiosity and self-learning. Teachers have found creative ways to utilize this tool, including facilitating doubt-clearing sessions, achievers classrooms, and self-paced learning environments.
The cultivation of critical thinking skills is vital for academic achievement and career advancement. The course of study at SOS features the scientific approach of CRAFT (critical reading, analysis, and fact-checking), which offers intriguing activities and experiments to promote critical thinking in the classroom and beyond.
The SOS approach to education encourages students to pursue learning in a comprehensive way, enabling them to gain a deeper understanding of concepts through cross-disciplinary assignments that incorporate research and technology. By promoting critical thinking, analytical skills, and problem-solving abilities, as well as reading, writing, speaking, listening, and presentation skills, students receive a well-rounded education.
With SOS, students can learn science through hands-on experiments that enhance their understanding of science subjects, develop scientific reasoning abilities, and practical skills. They also develop a scientific attitude through joyful activities that make science accessible and engaging.
By adopting the flipped classroom approach, SOS students watch pre-recorded video lectures or read materials before class, while class time is dedicated to interactive discussions and problem-solving activities. This approach helps students to gain a more thorough understanding of the material, engage in collaborative learning, and receive personalized instruction from their teachers.
SOS is a pioneer in Vidarbha, having integrated computational thinking (CT) into their Math and ICT curriculum since 2018 by adopting the CS Pathshala program. Unplugged activities like puzzles, games, coding, and the Tower of Hanoi enable students to acquire problem-solving, reasoning, analytical thinking, critical thinking, and ideation skills in an enjoyable way. Additionally, SOS students earn recognition on the Wall of Fame for their outstanding performance in the Bebras Challenge - Problem Solving Challenge.
