The Hillside Prep follows the Cambridge Primary curriculum from Grades 1 to 5. We develop young learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged.
The Cambridge international curriculum sets a global standard for education, and is recognised by universities and employers worldwide. The three important things Cambridge focuses on are deep subject knowledge, conceptual understanding,and higher order thinking skills.Cambridge students develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning.
Cambridge programmes combine an emphasis on mastering subjects in depth with the development skills for study and work in the future. They value deep subject knowledge as well as the conceptual understanding that helps students make links between different aspects of a subject. They also encourage students to develop higher order thinking skills - problem solving, critical thinking, independent research, collaboration and presenting arguments. These are transferable skills that will last a lifetime, preparing students for their future lives. They also make learning enjoyable and rewarding.
Cambridge qualifications have long been recognised by the Association of Indian Universities(AIU) and this information is available in the Equivalence of Foreign Degrees document published by AIU. Universities and colleges in India follow the equivalence requirements laid down by AIU.
Apart from the subject focus, a lot of emphasis is laid on the skill development of the child. The 4Cs – Creativity and Innovation, Communication, Collaboration, Critical thinking and problem solving, along with Digital literacy form the strong pillars of our curriculum which ensure that we provide our children with the 21st century skills required for their life beyond school.
