- We strive to eliminate the boundary between school and the world, exposing students to their community's rich diversity and instilling an innovative spirit.
Project-Based Learning (PBL)
Wholehearted purposeful activity in a social and authentic context.
At Surana High Tech International School, we believe learning is not just about absorbing information. It is about going through those ‘wow’ moments as learners, adventurers, discoverers, innovators, researchers, and presenters. Therefore, projects with learning expeditions with authentic learning tasks are designed with real-world problems to help students learn concepts and navigate through different areas of study.
Advantages of PBL
- PBL helps develop communication, logic, and collaboration skills and provides students with a well-rounded education.
- PBL encourages the students to put knowledge into action by creating tangible projects and showcasing their work in public spaces.
- With PBL, students take ownership of their education by reflecting on their learning process, asking fundamental questions, and making a real difference in the world.
Key features of Project-Based Learning:

Ethics on Excellence
If you are doing something, you should do it well.
Education should be about developing strong character and work ethic. Our curriculum has an undeterred focus on the quality of work and character development.
