The medium of instruction at Doon Public Academy, Vikasnagar, Dehradun, is English and the curriculum we follow will be in accordance with the CBSE board. As the school believes in holistic development of the students, therefore every month, Inter house and Inter class competitions will be held in the fields of Debating, Quizzing, Dramatics, Poetry, Music, Art, and Craft. This exposes the child to various co-curricular activities while in School and also helps the child to become an extrovert and broadens their personality.
At Doon Public Academy we follow a unique system of teaching which distinguishes itself from any other school in the region.
The classrooms have been constructed with an adjoining activity area and have been designed as a live space where children are taught through hands on learning and live demonstrations and experiments, this inspires and encourages young minds to explore, learn and discover.
In addition the Classrooms in our School are technology enabled, classes fully equipped with computers, smart tv and digital teaching systems. Smart class is a new concept in learning. Learning becomes a livelier and vibrant experience that makes even the most difficult topic easy and enjoyable to learn.
The teaching staff is the biggest asset for the School. We at Doon Public Academy have very qualified, trained, committed and highly professional teaching staff. Our teachers are exposed to global learning practices and are put through refresher programs and regular training sessions and are able to use their skills as mentors to the fullest. They constantly motivate and guide the pupils and draw out the best in them.
The various disciplines of the school have a Head of Department who manages his/her team of teachers effectively, deciding on the syllabus breakups and ensuring uniformity in the teaching patterns.
We understand the fact that every student has their own learning curve which is unique to them and therefore the student to teacher ratio is geared towards giving maximum attention to each student.
The teacher student ratio is 1:20 in nursery & kindergarten classes & 1:30 in other classes. This ensures personal touch and individual interaction between the teachers and the taught. Due emphasis on practical and hands on learning, provide an ideal atmosphere for the students to excel at academics.
At Doon Public Academy we offer a number of co-curricular activities that involve aspects of the child's personality and provide a gateway to learning. We have dedicated periods during the school hours & opportunities for after school classes for various activities.
The many co-curricular activities that our school has to offer include drawing, painting, gardening, clay modeling, pottery & craft. The school also offers Indian and Western forms of singing, dancing and instrumental music. Involvement of children in dramatics & debates is highly emphasized in the school curriculum. Dramatics will involve story telling, role-play, dance movements, discussions and stage performances.
