NTR Model School partnered with Acclaim Global Education India Pvt. Ltd., a subsidiary of Star Tech Group, USA to improve critical thinking and analytical thinking foundation skills in our students. In this Avatar CTF project, we had the opportunity to have very high-quality teachers from USA taking LIVE classes twice a week with our students in a twelve-week course model. In addition to our students, there were three additional schools at the same time learning together with our students. In twelve weeks, we have noted remarkable communication and thinking ability improvement in our students.
This experience has shown that our students, regardless of their financial or family background, once they have the opportunity to actively engage and discuss with world-class teachers, that exposure gives them a lot self-confidence with improvement in their communication and thinking skills. This Critical Thinking Foundation courses in my opinion are very important to prepare our students for the 21st Century workforce. I would like to recommend these courses not only for students but also for the faculty in order to strengthen our teacher’s skills.

As part of the academic excellence, we have incorporated an additional programme to high school students from the USA which is sponsored by the Acclaim Global Education India Pvt. Ltd. A subsidiary of Star Tech Group. This course was designed to enhance the critical thinking and English communique skills for a period of 12 weeks during the academic year 2015-15.
The classes which attended this program were heterogeneous in the standard of their English language. But by the end of this program, we could note a lot of transformation in children in the form of their increased self-confidence, critical thinking, zeal to learn and their communique skills. This helped even to improve their academic performance.
Hence, I suggest that this kind of exposure to children at this age will definitely sharpen their skills and make their journey with an ease to achieve their ambitions in a further career.
