After Hours Independent Study

Optimus believes that each student should spend some time after the school hours in independent study, either at the school prep hour or at home.

We believe that such an effort

  will help to develop sound independent study habits
  will reinforce learning through further practice.
  Must be appropriate to the age, ability and developmental stage of the individual student and should be stimulating, interesting and fun to do.

Some sort of work will be assigned for all students. It will be made into a meaningful educational device based on quality assignments rather than quantity.

Week and Term boarders are given sufficient time and necessary guidance to do these during the evening prep hours.

Parents of Day Boarders should earmark time for independent study. The school encourages the parents to help their children with some difficult work (but please do not do it yourself) and advise the teacher if the child has any difficulty with homework

During holidays also some sort of academic work, usually in the form of Projects will be set for the students.

Thinking, creating, connecting are at the heart of what we do at Optimus. Every day, we help children to develop the critical, foundational skills needed for a lifetime of learning; we encourage them to pursue their passions and apply their skills to solve meaningful problems; and we further our work together by communicating with honesty, openness, and respect. I invite you to learn more about Optimus—peruse our website or visit the school and see our exceptional programs in action!

Experience gained in two schools under my control has taught me that punishment does not purify, if anything, it hardens children.
