The Oxford School, Trivandrum, affiliated to CBSE, New Delhi, is one of the few institutions where not only IQ (Intelligence Quotient), but also MQ (Moral Quotient), EQ (Emotional Quotient), and SQ (Spiritual Quotient) are given importance. Students are guided towards holistic development so as to make them academically strong and socially responsible citizens and is housed with most modern facilities.
The Oxford School believes that along with developing academically strong students, an important goal of education is to teach children to be socially responsible citizens, who would learn from their younger age, how to give of themselves for the greater good.
Towards this end, we aim to meet not only the physical, emotional, and educational needs of children, but their spiritual need as well. Regular Islamic studies for all Muslim students and Moral Science classes for children of all other religions incorporated in the curriculum forms a part of this. Besides this, age-appropriate activities, reading materials, class trips, and guest speakers on varied topics of service and civil responsibility are an integral part of a child’s education at The Oxford School. The task of developing good human beings and responsible social citizens requires empathy, deliberative reasoning, and the moral imagination of all members of the Oxford community.
Here, learning to give of one begins in Kindergarten and continues throughout the entire schooling period as students participate in community service and outreach projects which are integrated into the curriculum, ensuring The Oxford School to create not only academically strong graduates, but also those who will become informed, intuitive, and sensitive citizens.
Our school is a caring, happy, and fun-filled place where each student is appreciated as an individual. We certainly expect our students to work hard, to take responsibility for their academic success and behaviour, and to involve themselves in the broader life of the school. We are not primarily looking for academic excellence in our students, but for compassion, humility, integrity, and sensitivity to the needs of others, and a willingness to be peacemakers and bridge builders in our local and international communities.
Our objective is to meet the collective and individual needs of our students, preparing them for life in the 21st century, and challenging and supporting them to reach beyond their perceived potential. We are conscious of our responsibility to provide the intellectual, physical, and emotional skills young people need to be successful in an increasingly complex world and the motivation to make the world a better place.
