Activity-Based Learning

The Bodhi School uses an activity-based pedagogy. Curriculum, assessments, and frameworks are contextualized, such that learning is interesting and engaging. Students learn how to apply concepts to their daily life—how math can be used in managing farming, for instance.

In addition to academics, Bodhi students participate in the arts and sports. They sing, dance, and act in cultural programs; they play on sports teams. Bodhi’s integration of co-curricular activities results in holistic development. Students also come to enjoy learning and look forward to coming to school.

Since many Bodhi students are first-generational learners, Bodhi also provides opportunities for students to interact with role models, such as doctors, engineers, and entrepreneurs.
