Lower Secondary School begins in Grade 6 and goes up to Grade 8. Children starting secondary school are typically between the ages of 11 and 12.
DSB is incredibly proud of its multicultural and multilingual fabric. Being unique, as individuals and as an institution, is what defines us. Our students come from over 35 countries, collectively speak dozens of languages and are united through this great city of Mumbai.
As a school, learning is at the heart of our vision and our mission. Our philosophy of learning extends beyond the academic curriculum to include developing the skills and attributes for success in line with our mission and vision. We truly believe in Growing Learning Minds.
In secondary, students follow either the English National Curriculum or the Curriculum of Thueringen up to grade 8. Learning objectives from these curricula are delivered through innovative and varied lessons and content and context are flexible to reflect our international status. An exciting addition is the Big History Project (from Macquarie University Australia) which starts with the Big Bang and truly exemplifies cross-curricular, skills based learning. Learning is supported by many exciting initiatives, competitions and excursions to provide authenticity and intrinsic interest. Our programmes are rigorous and ambitious, but students are supported by a strong team of educators.
