Admissions at Pathways World School

Implementing the ideas laid out by national and international experts an exciting school located on a 35 acre campus was created on an elevated, wooded site in the Aravali Hills, just 25 km from Delhi International Airport, but away from the pollution of the city. The architecture of the school, specially designed by CP Kukreja, is the optimum setting for effective learning. It is a flexible temperature-controlled environment designed for anywhere-anytime learning, with abundant shaded outside areas for conversation and tranquil reflection. There are subject based classrooms. A country school ambience just half an hour away from the Bustling city of Gurgaon.

National and international experts led by world-renowned School Planner Mr. Prakash Nair from the USA developed the concept and plans for the school. They decided to name the school “Pathways” to represent Howard Gardner’s multiple pathways to learning.

There is universal radio networking and every student from Grades 7 to 12 use laptop computers. Facilities include seven laboratories, a spacious Library-Media-Centre, studios for Art, Music, Dance, Theatre and Craft-Design-Technology. Sporting facilities include an Olympic-size football field, a 400 metre track, a 25 metre pool, a putting green, tennis, basket ball and volley ball courts, cricket field, horse riding ground and a three storey centre for indoor sports that houses well-equipped gymnasium, squash courts, table tennis, snooker and pool tables and weight-training equipment gymnastics and aerobics.

A meeting can also be arranged with the Principal or any other faculty member that you may wish to see.

Application

Parents are requested to be frank and honest in providing information in the admission application form. Adverse information if any, whether scholastic or behavioral, will not be a ground for refusal of any admission request. Any such information would in fact help the school to create a suitable environment for your child, once admitted. Any wrong information or concealment of information discovered later may lead to cancellation of admission.

To complete the application process, please follow the steps outlined below. If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the Admissions Office at +91 98186 66677 or +91 98186 66688.

Interviews

The interview is as pleasant and non intimidating as we can make it. It is normally conducted by Head of Admissions, School Director, the respective Principal, Head of Pastoral Care and Residence Co-ordinator (if applicable). We are interested in knowing about the child’s/ student’s educational development, use of language, social skills, academic enthusiasms and extra-curricular interests. The aim of the interview is to find about what the student knows, understands and enjoys.

While coming for the interview please bring with you the following :-

Examples of the applicant’s school work in the form of exercise books, portfolios etc.
Primary applicants (up to Grade 5) should bring at least one book which they are currently reading inside or outside school.

Primary school candidates are examined by the Primary Head. This is an oral interaction and the child may also be asked to perform some simple activities.

Admission seekers for Grades 6 to 9 have an oral interview and a written test. Testing is done for Basic English and Mathematics. For Grade 9, students will also be assessed for Integrated Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology).

Students are only taken into Grade 10 if they are transferring from a similar school and their admission is based on reports from their existing school and an interview and test.

Admission to Grade 11 is by oral interview, written tests in English, Mathematics. All the IB Diploma candidates also have a meeting and group discussion with the School Director. The candidates should demonstrate the ability to meet the requirements of the IB Diploma.
