At the primary school level we at Hikmah capitalize on the student's natural curiosity that children portray at this point in time or age. Based on these ideas and experiences we tend to expose them to theories and walk them through practical approaches so that they may investigate, learn and ponder over concepts, thus providing them with lessons for a lifetime. Our teachers play multiple roles such as facilitators, learners and guides at the same time.
The classrooms, multimedia facilities combined with a fine blend of the classrooms, teaching technologies and well trained teacher community. This provides the perfect platform and ambience to equip the children with an explosion of ideas, creative thought process, critical thinking in the fields of language, mathematics, sciences and moral values, making them well balanced individuals and world citizens.
