Akanksha schools use innovative pedagogy and curriculum to ensure all learners master core academic skills.
Through effective pedagogy and an array of co- and extracurricular programs, Akanksha schools seek to equip students with the character and socio-emotional skills that help them to be responsible and compassionate citizens of their communities, country and world.
Akanksha schools create constructive partnerships between students, parents, schools, and community to ensure children are in a supportive and nurturing environment at school and at home.
Each Akanksha school builds and develops a team of teachers, a school leader, admin, and a social worker collaborating to run the school.
The Akanksha curriculum and Network Support Team empowers teachers and school leaders with best practices in pedagogy, using a skills-based approach and rigorous standards for student learning.
Each school maximises their use of time, money and materials - creatively leveraging government infrastructure, volunteers and a disciplined approach to managing the cost per child annually of an Akanksha School.
Parents actively engage in the process of their child’s development through programs such as the School Management Committee, parent literacy classes, parent volunteerism and community-wide efforts to address key issues such as women’s empowerment, substance abuse, physical violence and others.
All schools undergo a school development review to assess progress and plan next steps for school development. The review is conducted by the school, the network support team, and external stakeholders. Internal and external student assessments along with biannual performance reviews ensure each stakeholder is being held accountable to student growth.
