The Scindia School enables its students to experience a truly global education and develop a greater understanding of other cultures by providing them opportunities to be a part of Student Exchange programmes.
The School is associated with many schools and colleges in the world, among which are the Woodbridge School, Worksop College, Ellesmere College, and Stonyhurst School in UK. Our students have also gone to St. Philip’s College, Westminster, St. Stithians Boys College, Australia, St George’s Grammar School and Tiger Kloof, South Africa.
The exchange programs are offered to students of Class XI but, depending on the nature of exchange other classes too are given an opportunity. The selection procedure for the exchange programs is very rigorous and transparent. The students who are interested apply for the exchange programs by filling up a form stating their strengths and also reasons for wanting to go on an exchange. The respective Housemaster’s comments are taken. The Exchange Coordinator calls for a meeting of the selection committee comprising of the Principal, Vice Principal, the Deans, Round Square Representative, Exchange Coordinator and Adventure In-charge. The committee interviews every student. A ranking list is then prepared.
Certain exchange programmes require a specific skill which is kept in mind while selecting the students. Apart from regular exchange programmes, the students travel to different parts of the world for Round Square Conferences and projects.
Faculty Exchange Programme
We believe in sharing the best educational practices. Hence, our teachers are given opportunities for Faculty Exchange programmes. This programme serves as a cultural learning experience for teachers apart from being a means of expanding and enriching an educator’s academic expertise. They return enriched by meeting the challenge of teaching a new curriculum in a different education system. They also bring with them the best teaching-learning practices followed by the host schools. We have an annual exchange of a month with the Woodbridge School, UK and Ellesmere College, UK. For the second year in succession, we have two teachers visiting Germany as part of a partnership programme with another school. Our teachers have also received the prestigious Fulbright partnership and been to the US.
We also receive teachers who come with unique teaching strategies and enrich our teaching learning experience. We have had teachers from different parts of the world visit us and make significant contributions to their respective areas of expertise ranging from Dance, Theatre, Math, Physics and English.
