The St. Anthony’s School’s academic ethos focuses on encouraging the students to utilise their talents, and develop their intellectual
and creative interests so that they remain interested for the rest of their professional and personal lives. The pupils need to
understand their own culture and history, as well as their own geographical,
scientific and spiritual theory and language. The
school’s academic environment is constructed such that the students are able to develop their knowledge and interest in the world
in which they live.
Anthonians are expected to be independent thinkers, develop first class critical reading, writing and analytical skills, learn to
understand the value of research across all areas of the curriculum and be self-motivated and self-driven through a genuine love of
the subject and not only by intrinsic rewards. They should be aware of others’ weaknesses and strengths and be able to develop an
understanding for them. An understanding of each other’s cultural backgrounds and religions is a crucial aspect of academics and
life beyond academics at St. Anthony’s School, Kurseong.
We vigorously strive to achieve excellence in academics, by addressing all aspects of learning which include:
- Knowledge: The fact that the student should be able to recall facts and figures to ensure competence in the subject.
- Understanding: How the student will be able to interpret, apply or predict aspects of the subject
- Skills: How the student will be able to apply what has been learned in new situations
- Attitudes: How the student is changed by the learning experience
The School provides the students with flexible opportunities of learning and expressing themselves both independently and
collaboratively. Ample opportunities are given to the students to develop skills in public communication via debates, quizzing,
elocution, dramatics and music.
