Life at The Northstar School
Our learners meander through a process of self-discovery, not to march ahead. We are a progressive school, an international school, an alternative school. We are a community, an experiment, an institution. But we don’t like to be boxed into a template. We are Northstar.
At Northstar learning happens in different ways, in different places and from different people, including the teacher, peers, community members and learners’ own selves. We believe that education should not be about memorizing facts, but about nurturing the curiosity of learners and guiding the development of the skills needed to pursue and learn about any interest. Learning is a complex process that demands a lot of hard mental work. But it is also a fun and satisfying process, and healthy habits of learning are at the core of the Northstar Philosophy of Learning. That is the Northstar Way.
