Kaizen High School launches in Lahore with a unique vision, one where A-levels curriculums merge with co-curricular electives and activities to create a truly Liberal Arts experience.
The Kaizen philosophy of continuous growth is best served by a diversity of thought woven into our offerings. We at Kaizen High School believe that restricting opportunities for development to a single-purpose curriculum hinders the student from reaching their full potential. In an ever-evolving world where the word ‘global’ has become synonymous with information, things like digital networks, advances in technologies, and cultural diversity have created a new reality. The leaders of today and tomorrow now need to think across disciplines – mastery in just one subject from years of focused dedication is no longer enough, they must be flexible, adaptable, quick to react to our fast-paced world.
The way we learn, work, play is all impacted by the evolution or mutation of our political, economic, social and technological frameworks. A liberal arts education is the solution to the world we now inhabit and the sooner our students are introduced to diversified thought, the better equipped they are.
Kaizen High School prescribes to both Social and Critical pedagogies – whereby we believe that a student must challenge ‘given’ perspectives towards personal development. Ultimately our objective is to help form contributing members of society that carry their knowledge and experiences throughout their lifetime and not just till exams.
In Pakistan, and many other countries, there is almost singular focus on careers with little time provided to students to explore their interest prior to an all-too-soon decision about their future professions or general direction. What we often miss is the opportunity to merge the student’s passions into a fulfilling journey of both self-development and contribution to their communities. Our electives that range across everything from the numerical to the harmonic and our societies that allows students to involve themselves in everything from community service to special interest awareness and personal expression combine with our curricular offerings seamlessly. Our Octo-learning goals are geared towards allowing our students freedom of expression and interest, exploring the many avenues of academia and activeness that could enhance or indeed uncover their true potential.
As complimentary fields or as unique passions, Kaizen High School believes varying angles of a student’s profile can provide an edge in competitive fields of finance, engineering or even art. With debates raging on such topics as artificial intelligence and the ethics of sentient machines, we are beginning to bridge the gaps between humanities and technology. As economic recessions and resilience is often times determined by consumer trends in our increasingly capitalistic systems, we must delve into psychology, marketing, finance as complimentary subjects. Kaizen High School students enter into a journey of reflective development that allows them to tackle such scenarios holistically. Under our tutelage they science, arts, humanities, and even life skills are a spectrum that all students must experience to become contributing global citizens.
Today’s students represent tomorrow’s leaders and change-makers and they need to be capable of novel theories, or tackling 21st century challenges across disciplines. Their skills in observation, innovation and building connections as they explore possibilities beyond conventional scopes are best developed early. This is why at Kaizen High School we have developed an academic plan that reflects these values and incorporates them into the student’s personal development path. Our students are meant to boast thoughtful choices, successful professions and a commitment to lifelong quest for knowledge and understanding. Wherever our students go, they will step into new opportunities with a fresh perspective, starting with a liberal arts curriculum that allows them to merge thought into action.
Kaizen High School’s student-centered focus engages our students with an array of experiences, both in theoretical subjects and practical application, preparing them for unique and diverse challenges that future generations now face.
Even employers now understand the value of things like leadership skills, teamwork, communication, and problem-solving capabilities – features that a liberal arts education fosters in its students. Kaizen High School’s Octa-Learning framework makes the development of such skillset an essential requirement for graduation. To our students and their future employers the early introduction to a liberal arts education and the skills it develops are invaluable.
