Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please. – Mark Twain
We at Galaxy School, after much research and deliberation, have come to regard three kinds of learning as essential for students to succeed in work and life:
Traditional academic knowledge and skills. We believe that the students will no longer need to rote learn the academic content through books. We emphasize on a strong academic foundation in the Primary classes to ensure success in postsecondary education and training.
Real world application, or applied literacy. Students will need, not only knowledge but also the ability to apply their learning to meet real-world challenges. That applies to all subjects, including English, Maths, Science, and Social Science.
Broader competencies. Students who develop an even broader set of competencies will be at an increasing advantage in work and life.
The ability to solve new problems and think critically; Strong interpersonal skills necessary for communication and collaboration; Creativity and intellectual flexibility; and Self sufficiency, including the ability to learn new things when necessary.
