At Smart Minds Academy(SMA), utmost care is taken in implementing Prof. K.K. Anand’s vision of an Alternate School, Nurturing Gifted & Talented children for achieving Holistic Academic Excellence. Here the students are made to experience the joy of learning and they find SMA as the most interesting place for their academic progress.
Smart Minds Academy stands for excellence. It provides a creative platform to students, channelizing their learning capacity to discover, develop and draw out their hidden talents, culminating into Academic Excellence. Learning at SMA is student centered and growth oriented. All this is enabled by our team of dedicated and competent teachers headed by an adept Principal.
Prof.K.K.Anand’s curriculum design principle for SMA is very unique. It helps students to learn an accelerated syllabus, giving them ample time for preparation towards JEE-Advanced/ NEET, when they reach 11th and 12th std. At the same time, extensive training is given for the various Olympiads and the competitive exams, that have been made a part of the regular syllabus. As part of 21st century learning, prominence has been given to regular Computer Programming and Competitive Programming (Informatics Olympiad) as well.
For the knowledge enrichment and wide learning experience, Prof. K.K. Anand has introduced modern techniques such as ‘Project Based Learning’, ‘Thought Experiments’, ‘3D Animation Videos’ and 'STEM(Science, Maths, Engineering and Technology) Activities'. Students are exposed to 'Robotics' & 'IOT' (Internet of Things), enabling them to learn the latest Technologies and create useful real-time applications. Subject like ‘Puzzles’ involving routine and non routine categories has been introduced as value addition to improve the Logical, Analytical & Lateral thinking.
The SMA curriculum as a whole also ensures that students develop Critical Thinking, Reasoning, Problem Solving, Keen Observation and Creative Thinking.
At SMA, Value Education is taken up seriously for character building. Significant importance is given to extra-curricular activities as well. In particular, the ‘Theatre classes’ instill public speaking and communication skills.
I convey my sincere thanks to all the parents for their valuable and continued support. We are always ready to listen to the needs of parents and students to improve the outcome of SMA.
