Embracing Robotics and coding in Education!!
Coding is essentially written instructions that a robot or computer program can read and then execute. Students must determine the task they want to complete through a robot, design the code to make it happen, and then send it to the robot to view the outcome. Robotics allows students to see their thinking in a real way as they go through trial and error until the task is accomplished and the robot's motions are performed as originally intended.Perseverance through struggle, problem-solving, a sense of agency, and collaboration (when working in pairs) are all encouraged, fostered, and achieved through such projects.
Vasishta students have begun their coding exposure by laying a foundation for understanding that failure and frustration are a part of the creativity and exploration process.
Vasishta school gives equal importance to Extracurricular activities!!
Vasishta is focused on your child's extracurricular interests which give a push to their self-esteem and confidence. It allows students to follow their passion and nurture a new skill.

Middle school students are catered with educational and developmental needs. An inquiry-based approach for conceptual learning ensures the integration of skills into the teaching-learning processes. The balanced and structured curriculum helps students explore the relevance of their learning in the real world. At VSE, the concepts taught are woven into units, driven by a statement of inquiry, and explored through inquiry questions revolving around a global context.
A digital smart classroom provides enhanced teaching and learning experience. At Vasishta, we try to make lessons come alive through smart classes, providing audio-visual exposure to the students. The smart board in each classroom enhances a student's learning experience by allowing them to see diagrams, charts, videos, and maps on a large screen in front of them in real-time. This makes learning more exciting and easier to understand. Learning through visuals helps the students to learn and memorize the topic for a prolonged period of time. It boosts the confidence of the students and encourages them to think beyond their imagination.
Assessments are designed to ensure continuous engagement of the students with the concepts and content in a real-world context. The feedback from teachers and student reflections pave a path for improvement in not only performance but also the teaching learning practices.
