Crown School Group makes students future-ready
The group is revolutionising traditional education by seamlessly infusing modern technology into everyday learning.
Crown Private School is a British Cambridge examination-certified school from pre-KG to grade 12, and the newly minted Crown American Private School offers the American curriculum from KG to grade 12.
"We believe that technology can positively impact learning and make an age-old curriculum stimulating as students are more receptive," says Vinod Sharma, chairman of Crown Group.
With student safety a top priority, both schools offer high security with 150 cameras gracing the compounds. E-safety awareness campaigns and activities are a regular feature to ensure online safety.
All corners are equipped with high-speed internet connectivity that in turn powers interactive smart boards installed in each classroom for video and audio lessons.
The school is equipped with a robotics and innovation laboratory, where children start working on robotics as early as age six.
"When we introduced the immersive learning room and integrated this experience into our British and American curriculums, it was the real game changer in how our students learn daily," explains Anne Morris, principal of Crown American Private School.
The immersive room uses projection technology to make the room walls come alive as interactive touch-sensitive screens. All subjects can now be learned immersed in the experience, simulations can be created, and diagrams can be explored in 3D with children zooming in and out of details, viewing it from all angles, engrossed in the delight of control in their small palms.
"The experience essentially heightens and caters to many senses: touch, sight and sound. This increases the tactical and visual focus of students in lessons for all grades, starting as young as KG," adds Stephanie, head of the KG department.
A multi-culturally diverse environment emanates from the community of 2,000 students and 4,000 satisfied parents, an eclectic mix of locals Emiratis, Arabs and families hailing from over 40 nationalities. The teaching is enforced by native English teachers, and extra academic support is provided to students who need it.
Despite the heavy influence of the British curriculum and modern western technology, the school strongly focuses on Quran understanding, Islamic morals, social studies and Arabic subjects as per the curriculum set by the Ministry of Education.
On the other hand, for sports activities, the school maintains a football field, basketball court, and a multi-purpose hall for extracurricular activities.
"Overall, we like to offer a well-rounded schooling to our students, so while we use technology to boost everyday learning, we make sure the extracurricular and sports are an integral part of the child’s school life," says Dr Kishore Pillai, director of education of Crown Group of schools.
