Here is what students will benefit
Every school should emphasize child-centered learning because every child has different personality and learning style.
Every student can learn, probably not in the same way or on the same day. Child- centered learning will help discover your child’s unique learning method and career path.
A school should not only take pride in the qualifications of her teachers. Teachers who inspire their students provide better value and students who love their teachers always succeed because they inspire them to be confident and self-motivated.
Great teachers give extra attention to students lagging behind, they are approachable and friendly, they believe that all students are brilliant. They are constantly receiving world-class training of the latest best practices in Education.
In a thinking school, students develop their meta-cognition to the highest level and are encouraged to think outside the box and try to overcome problems themselves before asking for help.
Greensprings School represents Thinking School Nigeria and is affiliated to Thinking School International.
A child that has a well-rounded education is equipped with relevant skills to be able to manage complex situations.
There are five key components of a well-rounded education including academic excellence, Intellectual, cognitive & presentation skills, music & performing arts, sports & recreation and social skills & community service. A well-rounded child will always have an edge to succeed in this ever changing world.
