About Heritage Xperiential Learning School, India
Heritage Xperiential Learning School is focused on deeper, authentic and inter-disciplinary learning. Founded in 2003 as a not-for-profit private co-educational school, the school is a community of over 3000 students and an enviable student to staff ratio of 9:1. Although the school is just 14 years young, it is consistently been ranked among top ...10 day schools in India. Known for its progressive pedagogy and community bound curriculum, Heritage Xperiential is also one of the few inclusive schools in India with a well- integrated special needs program. Although the school offers 3 curricula (National Board, IGCSE and IBDP), it attempts to be curriculum agnostic through its own organically developed curriculum that stretches the boundaries of prescribed national and international curricula.
The last fourteen years have been a learning journey for the school. We are deeply inspired and committed to the philosophies of Kurt Han, Vygotsky, Rudolf Steiner, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi, J Krishnamurthy. Our curriculum has been designed and curated organically over the years and reflects some of these core learning principles - for our Students, Parents and Teachers.
