HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT

The objective of this holistic education is to develop sharp minds that observe, absorb and apply, in consonance with fit and healthy bodies and an enlightened soul.

A Sharp Mind

The learning process involves improving the cognitive abilities of all students to the highest possible level, developing high level thinking skills, educating them to think creatively and learning to solve problems through innovative methods.

A Healthy Body

The physical and sporting activities are geared towards improving all aspects of the student’s physical self, such as strength, stamina, motor skills, reflexes, concentration and self discipline. The wider benefits of the programme are to do with building team spirit, peer camaraderie, healthy competition and fair play.

An Enlightened Soul

A thematic study of the Qur'an and other authentic Islamic books complemented with a Tarbiyyah programme is designed to nurture Taqwa, noble characteristics of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and love for Allah, love for His Prophet and love for their religion.

THE CURRICULUM

ZIA curriculum consists of three strands that are carefully selected and integrated to promote the development of the mind, body and soul of every student. These are:

Under the globally recognized and widely accepted programme from Cambridge International, which also include IGCSE, the school offers range of subjects like: English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History, Geography, Design & Technology, Accounts, Business Studies, Art and Craft, Arabic, Urdu and many other languages. Standard 13 offers an advance learning course and ‘A level’ exams to students for the chosen subjects. The courses are acceptable to all Indian and international universities including Harvard, Yale and MITC.

Physical Education and sports promote good health and fitness. They inculcate many values such as fair play, team spirit, persistence, hard work, discipline etc. The range of indoor and outdoor activities encourages recreation. It also promotes entrepreneurship, artistic talent and multi-media skills.

Thematic studies of the Quran and Islamic/Arabic studies are complemented with a strong Tarbiyyah Programme to develop noble characteristics of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). These studies are designed to help students develop an in-depth understanding of their faith. Eventually this will help them to have a strong sense of self esteem in their Islamic identity.
