ABOUT US

The first of its kind in Malaysia, Sri Aria School is a Self-Directed Learning school where a student's education is shaped by the child themself. At our school there is no homework, textbooks, examinations, or tests. Our goal is to create and reinforce a healthy foundation for their love of learning, and to provide a free space for students to delve into their interests while we assist in cultivating their strengths.

 

Here, we allow students to learn through project-based and hands-on activities, discussions, with a focus on skill building. Instead of directing them to learn traditional subjects with a rigid enforced syllabus, we allow the students to design their own learning and encouraging them to pursue their interest. With each project they complete, the learning process will follow in step. Our campuses give them free reign to explore skills related to workmanship, culinary arts, coding, animation, music, and more.

 

Creativity, imagination, alertness, curiosity, responsibility, and judgement are innate qualities in every child. The only quality that is missing in children is experience. When we allow children to learn through quality experiences and be nurtured by the guidance of supportive adults, we build people equipped with the most important skill of all; a deep love for learning, and the ability to learn whatever must be learnt.

Sri Aria School Logo (Lion Head)

"Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever must be learned." – John Holt

OUR CULTURE

TO GUIDE, NOT DIRECT.

A child needs a secure environment for learning uninterrupted. At our school we don't have teachers, we have learning facilitators whose roles are to guide and facilitate the learning of our Arians. Through our practice of guiding instead of directing, we hope to develop a culture in our school where our students:

A leaf in betwen two hands, signifying thlife in our hands.

LIVE

Always uphold mutual respect for the people, beings, and environment around us.

A hand holding a plant, helping it grow.

LEARN

Exercise their freedom to learn, in whatever area of interest they may have.

A hand with the earth in its palm, signifying that the world is in our hands.

LEAD

Fulfill their responsibility to lead, in big ways or small, paving the way for the future.
