A deep sense of curiosity is what drives the people at Lancers. With a strong focus on values including creativity and empathy, the leadership team at Lancers have created a safe and nurturing space where students have the liberty to ask questions, pursue problems in a way that makes sense to them and defend their conclusions by explaining their thinking in a variety of ways.
We believe each child learns best not by relying solely on normative standards, testing or passively consuming knowledge, rather that each child learns best by actively constructing their own understanding based on his or her knowledge, skills and experience. We view mistakes as important opportunities for both learning and assessment.
Our school leadership team is led by Mr. Y.K. Sindhwani, a visionary, whose strong faith in critical thinking, communication and collaboration has been crucial in ensuring that each child’s curiosities, abilities and learning style have been given their due space in designing the teaching methodologies.
