Welcome to DRS International School, a highly progressive and enterprising International school in hyderabad pledged to provide quality education with great emphasis on traditional values. At DRS, we are re-inventing education by breaking old moulds of thought. This progressive thinking has led to progressive teaching methods and brought about a tremendous change in how education is imparted.The students of The DRS International are encouraged to develop the habits of mind in a joyful learning experience. To that end, school offers a broad, rich and challenging curriculum. Academic offerings are traditional in structure yet, with a broad exposure to the liberal arts like theatre, dance, drama, singing, art & craft, designing, animation, adobe, multimedia, sports academies and selective opportunities to pursue individual interests.Here at DRS International the effort is to provide challenging classroom experiences designed to encourage curiosity, self-expression, joy, and aesthetic sensibility. Classes are small and teachers encourage students to participate actively in discussion, to work together creatively to solve problems, to communicate their ideas effectively, and to learn from each other.International School curriculum can be demanding, but the culture of the school is also caring and supportive. Students build personal bonding with their teachers. The atmosphere is one of cooperation and a shared endeavor in the pursuit of learning and growth. Extra help outside of the classroom is an important element of the school culture as teachers recognize their students’ individual needs and learning styles. We believe that students learn best when they can trust in their teachers’ kindness and understanding and when the classroom is a place for all questions and ideas. The underlying philosophy of multiple intelligences is evident in the curriculum as it weaves its way through inter curricular links.What to teach and how to teach are the two most important decisions the faculty makes. The DRS International has always viewed program evaluation as an important ongoing activity in the school to ensure effective delivery of the academic plan inside the classroom. Curriculum revision has always been orchestrated by departments or by individual teachers under the opinions and guidance of expert educators.While always accepting the value of student-centered learning, the school embraces a variety of approaches to teaching and content, from a traditional lecture and discussion format to a range of more experiential approaches and teaching strategies like QAXP, RAFT, Reciprocal teaching, JIGSAW, Think Pair & Share, Four Corners etc. to name a few.We define ourselves as a community of learning, one that educates students from diverse backgrounds to a full measure of their talents and humanity. Together, we seek to :• Foster the courage to live and think as distinct individuals who embrace their responsibilities in the larger world.• Expose every student to the deep satisfaction that drives from service to others.• Enlarge the education experience to include the creative joy & aesthetic sensibility of the artist, and the vitality & competitive spirit of the athlete.• Develop in our young minds the habits of mind of scholars as the foundation for a lifelong love of learning.• Nurture the development of character to leading a purposeful life.The DRS International School is a contemporary realization of these centuries – old ideals.Academic Support Program at DRS International School has two distinct objectives: first, to provide academic support for students and second, to provide a resource for faculty as they work with multiple learning styles and individual needs in the classroom.The Academic Support Program provides support to students identified by the teacher inside the classroom. For this a support process is in place which includes student, parents, teacher, expert advisor who is generally a psychologist, and the Academic Support Team for the development of a swift and appropriate plan of action for each student. The cornerstone of our referral process is communication among all parties involved with the student. The support program offers a variety of academic services peer learning, one-on-one specialized classes, and small group instructions. The program strives to develop each student’s ability by establishing a solid foundation in key academic areas.
