Community

The Candor School Community, like any vibrant and dynamic community, is made up of a rich diversity of personnel who fit into the various departments of the school.

A judicious blend of interdependence and autonomy is what makes the Candor community very special.

Our community consists of our Students, Teaching staff, Coordinators, Administrative staff, Medical staff, Kitchen staff, Dorm Parents, a Personal Counselor, a College and Career Guidance Counselor, and a Special Educator, all of whom together add to the richness and diversity of the school.

Students

Our student body comprises of both Indian and overseas students with diverse linguistic, cultural, and religious backgrounds. They are placed in appropriate advisory groups so that they have access to timely counsel and support in all aspects of their school life. They are also encouraged to work on their latent talents and skills in the Arts, Music, Sports or any other area of interest.

Teaching Staff

Our Teaching staff is qualified and experienced in their respective fields, and are life-long learners committed to making the learning experience of every student a rewarding one.

They undergo monthly in-house Professional Development workshops on pedagogical practices for the enrichment of their classroom management techniques and learning facilitation processes. The teaching staff is also encouraged to attend training workshops in each of their subject areas to ensure that their programme delivery methods are up-to-date. Our ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) membership provides our staff with additional teaching resources, made available only to members.

Administrative Staff

Our Administrative staff understands that their role as support to the academic and co-curricular programme is critical as they provide the framework for the whole programme. They are committed, enthusiastic, and understand that they play a crucial role in our interaction with the students, parents and the staff.

Medical Staff

Our Medical staff, which includes the doctor and the nurse, is committed to the health and well-being of the community on campus. They are on call, 24 X 7, and have the ability to deal with children in a warm and friendly manner. They provide a valuable service to the school.

Kitchen Staff

We have the best kitchen and that is because our staff understands that a school marches on its stomach and that cleanliness and hygiene are the mainstay of a healthy and nutritious meal. They are trained to cook both Indian and international cuisines and are oriented in child friendly tastes and conduct.

Coordinators

Our Coordinators are committed, qualified, experienced, and knowledgeable about the programmes they lead, and have the ability to inspire both students and the teachers. The coordinators have the responsibility of ensuring that the academic and co-curricular programmes are delivered effectively and that the communication lines between parents and the school are always open. They are the bridge between the Management and the students and teachers.

Dorm

Dorm parents are the loco in parentis (in place of parents) for our residential students and they provide the firmness yet warmth of a secure environment away from home. They are committed to overseeing the all-round development of the students under their care.

Counselors

Personal Counselor

Our Personal Counselor is qualified, trained and has the international school experience required to handle the issues related to such an environment. The counselor helps identify the problem and provides coping skills that enables the children to adjust academically, emotionally and socially. The counselors are selected based on their ability to build a rapport with students of all ages, and for their ability to maintain confidentiality under all circumstances, unless a breach was deemed necessary for safety reasons.

College and Career Guidance Counselor

The College and Career Guidance Counselor (CCGC) guides High School students in their search for colleges and universities, both in India and abroad. The CCGC helps with admissions and funding processes (wherever applicable) and ensures that they are successfully completed. The CCGC is also the resource person for parents for college and career related enquiries.

Special Educator

Our Special Educator runs the Special Educational Needs (SEN) progamme which caters to the needs of students who require special support, and the needs of our gifted students. As parents become increasingly aware of SEN, Candor ensures that the Special Educator is able to:

 Support students with identified learning needs and/or enrich the experience of our gifted students

 Raise awareness among staff about identifying and addressing these special needs

 Address the requirements for support and/or enrichment with parental involvement

 Support students in an inclusive way
