Ryan International School Masdar City, Abu Dhabi offers students a 21st century education platform built on the strong principles and framework of CBSE & the Schools 12- point vision as given by our Chairman Sir, Dr AF Pinto & Managing Director Madam, Dr Grace Pinto.
What constructs a well-structured teaching module? An effective pedagogy. Pedagogy is the science of teaching or education. Our pedagogy is based on
• Activity Based Learning
• Collaborative Learning
• Experiential Learning
Ultimately, we aim to blend consistency and variety in teaching methods by combining established learning theories with innovative practices and programmes. All of which help students improve their learning outcomes and achieve their full potential.
Our Learners’ Health & Safety is more than mere a slogan: It’s the School Culture. Children spend considerable part of their time in their schools and hence a healthy and safe learning environment is vital for their overall growth and wellbeing. We at Ryan Schools, adopt the global standards of safety and child protection to provide a secured learning environment with a caring and compassionate ethos.
Ryan Schools attract dedicated faculty who are skilled at making students feel safe, accepted, and capable. our well qualified, highly trained teaching staff of 12000 brings diverse talent and enthusiasm for teaching into every classroom. Ryan faculty have outstanding credentials in their fields of expertise. We invite not only the most qualified and best teachers, but also individuals that understand and embrace our vision and institutional commitments.
Innovation Lab fosters creativity and intellectual development through quality visual arts & hands-on experience by making students create objects of their choice. Students are taught various skills to replicate the model, such as selecting the right raw materials, making shapes & structures etc. We provide them the opportunities to understand mechanics, chemicals and encourage out-of-the-box ideas.
With our vision to ‘Cultivate one Million children in India as Neoteric Innovators’, Atal Innovation Mission is establishing Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATLs) in schools across India. ATLs aim to foster curiosity, creativity and imagination in students, and inculcate skills such as design perspective, computational thinking, adaptive learning, physical computing etc.
20 schools under the banner of Ryan Group have been shortlisted to set up ATLs in the school premises. The ATL representatives at Ryan Schools conduct different activities ranging from regional and national level competitions, exhibitions, workshops on problem solving, designing and fabrication of products, lecture series etc. at periodic intervals.
Early Years (KG 1 & KG 2)
Our main objective for the Kindergarten years is to help our young students develop their cognitive and motor skills along with their Multiple Intelligences as given by Howard Gardner. During these developmental years, we give our young Ryanites individual attention as they are introduced to school life in a friendly and stimulating atmosphere.
We work to enhance different language skills: Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening
Music, Art and Craft, Physical Education and Sports activities are also woven into the curriculum. Students participate in fun-filled activities, including games, story sessions, field trips, special weeks, assemblies and events with the Ryan Theater, role play, show and tell & various competitions.
Primary School – Grades I - IV
Our curriculum facilitates expansion of Preliminary Masteries that cover Language Skills, ICT skills, Numeracy Skills, Financial Literacy, Cultural or Civic Literacy, as well as Scientific Literacy.
The Middle School – Grades V - VIII
At our higher primary stage, integration of Science and Technology, with the Ryan Innovation Labs, bringing Mathematics application to life in the Math Lab and the introduction of combined thematic, cross-curricular subject integrated approaches to teaching of Social Sciences, are elements of the curriculum.
Languages: emphasis is placed on developing all skills, such as listening, speaking, reading, writing and thinking in a balanced manner.
Science and Technology: the focus is on developing the key concepts which cut across all the disciplines of science and on encouraging learners to improvise simple equipment and design experiments as they work on the learning outcomes in the Ryan Innovation Labs.
Social Science: emphasis is placed on the processes of learning and developing academic and social skills rather than mere acquisition of facts.
The speed of academic anxieties is slowly accelerated and, while holistic growth is always the focus, our students are gradually prepared to accept challenges. Our students become aware of the need to set goals and have long-term objectives.
