The Paras World School India education aims to inculcate skills for 21stCentury, in a world creating new knowledge at lightning speed. Students need the skills to understand the new and unknown independently and challenge, refine and evolve personal beliefs in the new light.
Inquiry-based learning begins with a significant question relevant to the student’s own life in a universal context. As one of the top international schools in Gurgaon, The Paras World School is geared to ensure that the student engages actively in a process of research to find answers and formulates a personal world view rather than being a passive recipient of inert information.
The spirit and process of inquiry are enhanced and nurtured by rich opportunities for exploration, building hypothesis and experimenting to develop problem-solving and critical-thinking skills in our skill development labs. An inbuilt life skills program also instills social, self management and communication skills.
The Paras World school we use a thematic approach wherein acquisition and application of knowledge, principles and values is integrated simultaneously in more than one subject through interdisciplinary curriculum planning. The Thematic approach culminates with each child collating and documenting the process of arriving at knowledge and skills and outcome of learning in a personal theme booklet which is an authentic record of the student’s growth and development in all dimensions. This approach has earned us the reputation of being a thought leader in child development amongst CBSE schools in Gurgaon.
Today Information Communication Technology has become what the pen and pencil were in the previous century.

It is one of the most respected and renowned education approaches all over the world and more so by international schools in Gurgaon . Every child has the right to get the best. Every child is capable of learning. We just need to create an environment where children are inspired to use their hundred languages and explore whatever the environment offers them.
At The Paras World School India, we ensure environment in class and outside as an integral part of the everyday learning process.
Inquiry based learning will become visible in original creations, considered choices, knowledgeable decisions, changed responses to situations, new approaches and attitudes, formation of authentic personal beliefs and worldview.
So, a student’s learning is assessed in conventional and unconventional evaluation but more importantly in the spark of further curiosity that leads to another and yet another inquiry in a lifelong process. The objective of Making Learning Visible is now practiced in leading schools in Gurgaon as it creates sound learning with understanding, and empowers the student with confidence to take responsibility for self and the environment.
