Our students are the next generation of inventors, problem-solvers, and game changers. It is our responsibility to ignite their curiosity and passion for critical thinking. We seeks to empower our students to become intellectually curious and critically reflective. We strives to make students confident and creative builders of their future.

An outstanding curriculum must be meaningful (to student), and engaging (thereby exciting student). At Roots, our concept based curriculum does just this. Traditional education focuses only on knowledge and skills, whereas our concept based curriculum goes much further and deeper, focuses on making sense of facts instead of just stating them. A lot of research and development goes into creating these concepts and imparting the same to the students.
An old adage states: "Tell me and I forget, show me and I remember, involve me and I understand." The last part of this statement is the essence of inquiry based learning. Inquiry implies involvement that leads to understanding. We adopts the IB Learning Framework incorporating inquiry based learning styles that encourage students to think deeply about what they are taught, to challenge concepts and theories and to question things they don’t understand or agree with. Adopting an inquiry based learning approach has turned our classroom into high-energy learning center.
Games have been used as a learning tool for centuries. Chess was used to teach strategic thinking as far back as the Middle Ages. We take this same concept and applies it to teaching a curriculum. Using game-based learning in the classroom helps engage students by directly involving them in the learning process. The result? Improved retention of material, increased student engagement, and an overall enjoyable learning environment.
Innovation and creativity are the hallmarks of our teaching philosophy. Our study material includes innovative ways of learning to allow greater understanding of the content that will guide students in their efforts of pursuing success. We bring aspects of creativity into all subjects, be it accounting, taxes, or economics.
“The first step in teaching students to innovate is making sure that educators have opportunities to be innovators themselves.”
