At Ekya BTM Layout, learning is not just academically centred; it is also sensitive to the wider needs of the students through diverse extracurricular opportunities that enhance their educational experience. The school offers CBSE syllabus and Montessori & Kindergarten programs.
Can education be less about memorising, and more about making a memory? Can a lesson be touched, tasted, smelt and seen, instead of just read? Can we mould empowered human beings, instead of just skilled students? At Ekya, we can.
Ekya is a community of learners, thinkers, doers and changemakers. Ekya stands for a sense of togetherness, collaboration and unity – Ekya is a community where everyone forges ahead with purpose. The word Ekya is derived from the Sanskrit sounds of unity and individuality. It embodies the spirit of collaboration and togetherness while allowing space for the individual to grow. The Ekya logo can be interpreted in many ways and we love seeing students derive their own meaning from it.
Drawing on the legacy of the CMR Group of Institutions and the innovative, immersive methods of school systems around the world, our schools were instituted with one aim – to teach children not just what to learn, but how to learn. Here, knowing how to learn is a skill in itself, and the key to creating lifelong learners with the means to adapt and thrive in a constantly changing world.
So, welcome to Ekya, the place where we live the lesson. Every single day.
“Imagine children who come up with questions like ‘why’ things look a particular way or ‘how’ do things change the way they do. Imagine their teachers who firstly acknowledge students in their natural curious ways and then proceed to ‘find out and understand things’ along with them. Imagine the kind of learning that happens when teachers ask (not tell or explain), ‘How can we find that out’ or ‘what is your first response to this?’ Finally, consider the kind of valuable learning that happens as children go out and research, test their ideas or assumptions and present their understandings to their peers.
This is the kind of teaching-learning environment that is continually nurtured at Ekya. It is a system of education that makes every effort to facilitate students to learn to observe, to think, and connect with each other as they engage with concepts and processes in language, math or arts.
I welcome you to a community of learners, thinkers, doers, and changemakers at Ekya School BTM Layout.”
