Methodology & Learning Styles

RBL's methodology concentrates first on the student's aptitudes, then on the skills and knowledge she/he needs to acquire. Traditional education tends to value a limited range of knowledge and skills but more recent research suggests that intelligence is not unitary but multiple. RBL's aims to give students a broader, deeper, richer educational experience by recognizing each student's strongest talents and building on them in order to ensure that all the areas of talent are developed.

The school organizes orientation programs for the parents to ensure their thorough understanding of the curriculum offered. The school follows a timetable which is flexible to the students’ learning needs, the cycle of learning and planning of the timetables is variable according to evolving needs and circumstances.

Multiple Intelligences Theory: A Learning Tool

An atmosphere of freedom prevails in order to allow children learn to be responsible. Children have the freedom to explore, to experiment and to discover during their learning process. The pleasure of learning is a central component of the pedagogy. Diversity is a tool in the learning process, so that children grow with an awareness and appreciation of different cultures including their own. Academic rigour, creativity and life skills are imparted to the learners.

Project Based Learning

If we recognizing that individual students have different 'intelligences' it is logical to allow them to develop these different talents through individual projects. Well organised Primary classes frequently function like this. To take an example from the Secondary curriculum: in a Design-Technology workshop, students own ensures that s/he works with a complete concentration which ensures that s/he remembers what is learned: (This approach can be applied almost as easily to languages and mathematics as it can to so-called practical subjects)
