USOEA is affiliated to ICSE. The curriculum followed is as per the guidelines provided by the Indian Council of Secondary Education. Our school follows skill based curriculum with several innovations which are introduced after much research and study. The idea behind this is to seamlessly integrate various subjects with a common thread which links them to practical aspect of life. This gives our students a holistic view and allows them to apply knowledge and correlate various subjects in real-life situations.
From Class VI, formal subjects like Physics, Chemistry and Biology are introduced and the methodology of delivery is unique, it has been developed in consultation with leading experts. Lessons are planned so that students get to learn their subjects in a practical manner with several projects and activities. From Class IX along with intensive studies, Career Orientation is introduced so that students can decide their future study options
We have certain integrated programmes that include some important facets of education which otherwise has been ignored these days. These include the Read Programme, Newspeak and SL&LS (Student Leadership & Life Skills). Since we realize the importance of reading and writing in this digital age, the students are encouraged to read more books and articulate their ideas impressively. Similarly, we aim at providing students a practical hands-on approach to the real world which awaits them, once they step-out of the safe cocoon of school life in USOEA .
These efforts have borne fruits which manifest themselves in the consistently excellent results, that have been got by our students in the CISCE exams.
The bulk of the co-curricular programmes is implemented through Saturday Activities held every 1st, 2nd & 4th Saturday of the month and activities during regular periods and Social Useful and Productive Work (SUPW) sessions held. Apart from these, various on-and off-campus programmes which include excursions and trips, and inter- and intra-school competitions. Students are encouraged to develop their leadership skills through a ‘Student Council’ that is governed by a prefect body. To encourage and enhance students, interactive sessions are conducted with visiting experts and celebrated artists and scientists throughout the year.
With a view to reiterate Traditional Values, this current academic year has been dedicated to the theme, “Cultural Heritage of India”. We ardently believe in instilling a deep notion of respect for the cultural heritage of India. We aspire for our students to become more sensitive and humane citizens.
