Learning-Centred EducationIn order to develop the fullest potential of all students, we need to afford them opportunities to pursue a variety of avenues to success. We fully understand these requirements and translate them into appropriate curricula and developmental experiences. For example, changes in technology and in the national and world economies have increased demands on employees to become knowledge workers and problem solvers, keeping pace with the rapid market changes. Hence, we at The Lexicon International School will provide the best in not only IT but in all aspects of developing a personality.
Organizational and Personal Learning
a. is a regular part of our daily work;
This means that learning
b. is practiced at personal, class, and school levels;
c. results in solving problems at their source (“root cause”);
d. is focused on building and sharing knowledge throughout our school; and
e. is driven by opportunities to effect significant, meaningful change. Sources for learning include ideas from faculty and staff, students and parents.
Valuing faculty and staffWe are committed to the satisfaction, development, and well-being of our faculty and staff. Evidently, we have more flexible, high-performance work practices tailored to faculty and staff with varying workplace and home life needs. We expect our faculty and staff to be student focused and more multidisciplinary.
AgilityWe understand Agility is an increasingly important measure of any organizational effectiveness. It requires a capacity for faster and more flexible responses to the needs of our students and parents.
Focus on the futureWe agree pursuit of education excellence requires a strong future orientation and a willingness to make long-term commitments to students and key stakeholders—our parents, faculty and staff. In today’s education environment, creating a sustainable organization requires understanding the short- and long term factors that affect any organization and the education market. Our school’s planning anticipates many factors, such as changes in educational requirements and instructional approaches, resource availability, students’ and stakeholders’ expectations, new partnering opportunities, technological developments, the evolving Internet environment, faculty and staff development and hiring needs, this entails faculty education and training in assessment methods. We also believe that focus on the future not only includes developing faculty and staff, but doing effective succession planning, creating opportunities for innovation, and anticipating public responsibilities.
Managing for innovationWe believe Innovation means making meaningful change to improve our school’s programs, services, processes, and operations and to create new value for the students, parents faculty and staff. Innovation leads to new dimensions of performance.
Management by factOur performance measurement focuses on student learning, which requires a comprehensive and integrated fact-based system—one that includes input data, environmental data, performance data, comparative/competitive data, data on faculty and staff, cost data, and operational performance measurement. Measurement areas might include students’ backgrounds, learning styles, aspirations, academic strengths and weaknesses, educational progress, classroom and program learning, satisfaction with instruction and services, extracurricular activities, sports programs etc…
Social responsibilityThe school stresses responsibilities to the public, ethical behaviour, and the need to practice good citizenship, tolerance to all religions and communities. We believe our faculty will be role models for our students in focusing on ethics and protection of public health, safety, and the environment. Protection of health, safety, and the environment includes our school’s operations. While planning anticipate adverse impacts that might arise in facilities management, laboratory operations, and transportation. We are sure that our effective planning will prevent problems, provide for a forthright response if problems occur, and make available information and support needed to maintain public awareness, safety, and confidence.
Focus on results and creating valueOur criteria of performance measurements need us to focus on key results. Results are used to create and balance value for our students and for our key stakeholders—the parents, faculty and staff, community, and the public. By creating value for students and stakeholders, our school will surely contribute to improving overall education performance.
To meet the sometimes conflicting and changing aims that balancing value implies, our strategy explicitly includes key stakeholders like parents, faculty and staff requirements. This will help ensure that plans and actions meet differing stakeholder needs and avoid adverse impacts on any stakeholders. The use of a balanced composite of leading and lagging performance measures offers an effective means to communicate short- and longer-term priorities, monitor actual performance, and provide a clear basis for improving results.
