Our mission here at Verita School is to nurture and enrich the child’s intellectual, emotional, social and physical growth. Emotional and social intelligence is as equally important as intellectual intelligence. Our integrated approach offers skills and values that aid in the development of self-motivation and the becoming of an independent learner who will be able to succeed in all of life’s complexities with adaptability, creativity, emotional balance and critical thinking.
Verita School has selected the National Curriculum of England & Wales as the core curriculum and educational foundation for our students. Verita qualifications open doors for students and learners and are a passport to success. The National English Curricula is recognized by leading universities and employers around the world as evidence of academic ability.
Verita School views each child as a unique individual and one to be respected for that uniqueness. Verita offers an environment which allows for the natural unfolding of the child and builds a foundation for lifelong learning. Through a carefully prepared environment and curriculum, the child is exposed to a variety of experiences and materials. Each is designed to nurture the child’s absorbent mind and foster his total development.
Verita provides an interdisciplinary oriented experience which facilitates independence, self-confidence, self-learning and respect. Each classroom and curriculum offers a unique meshing of learning styles which keeps pace with the individual educational needs of the child in mind. Verita views the parents as primary component in the education process. We are committed to working as a partner with parents in an atmosphere of respect and concern to ensure a meaningful experience.

How do we carry out our vision?

Verita School philosophy is based upon the following principles:

  • Nurturing the imagination in the early years in order to build a foundation for abstract thinking.
  • Awakening a student’s genuine enthusiasm, an interest in the WORLD, (a love of learning) and sense of purpose in life.
  • An educational approach encouraging balance.
  • Creativity, happiness, critical–thinking and self reliance.
  • To help students make the transition from external motivation to self-motivation.
  • A strong focus on respect, responsibility and compassion.
  • Fostering each child’s full potential.
  • Emphasizing the child’s relationship to the natural world.
  • A curriculum not driven by standardized testing.
  • Promoting cooperation over competition; and imaginative play over media exposure.
  • Arts, music and movement integrated into the entire curriculum.
  • To provide an appropriate structure to meet each student’s needs, at each phase of her or his growth, with the objective of self-discipline.
  • To teach decision making and problem solving.
  • To assist each student’s acquisition of a sense of personal responsibility.
  • To strengthen leadership potential and effectiveness.
  • To grow from a community of many nationalities, races, religions, cultures and socio-economic backgrounds.
