Learning Initiatives

Welcome to Amethyst International School (AIS), a world-class school in Chennai that aims to set a benchmark for progressive and holistic education in India.

Educational Programs at AIS

We feel proud and privileged to offer this program at AIS, which caters to all learning needs of a child other than academics, thus, shaping the child’s personal growth. We believe every child has the right to learn and bring out their in-built or hidden talents. This vision and mission have taken us forward to implement this initiative by partnering with recognised centres, who come down every day to our school and facilitate our students’ growth.

Speech and Drama

Speaking skills are important in developing self-confidence, communication, and presentation skills. This teaches the child to discover their unique oral signature. Writing lifts these skills into the realm of the imagination, allowing words to act as a conduit for children to convey the world as they perceive it – teaching them how to not only express themselves, but also to think critically.

Dance and Music

While dance is a good source of physical exercise and fitness for children, allowing them to develop a greater range of motion and better co-ordination – it also offers them the opportunity for self- expression through a creative outlet that teaches them how to interpret and interact with their environment in different ways. This leads to the enhancing and strengthening of the child’s sense of memory and discipline, while improving their interpersonal skills with layers of perception and emotional depth.


The fields of Engineering: Electronics, Mechanical, Programming and Algorithm, require the blending of both creativity and technical skills, nurtured by the combination of hands-on experiential as well as trial and error learning. STEM provides a controlled environment to not only foster the importance of teamwork and application of theory in children, but also one encourages them to adapt and build resilience to failure.

Martial Arts

Martial arts have a reputation of promoting violence in children when they are mostly structured around self-defense. They focus on inculcating listening skills and respect towards their instructors, each other, and themselves. A strong sense of self-discipline and interpersonal skills, along with a drive for goal-setting ensures that martial art is not only a way for children to learn conflict resolution, but also work on constant self-improvement.

Arts and Crafts

Arts and craft is a field that prioritises the emotional development of children. Through creative art, children can represent experiences that they cannot verbalize, offering them an opportunity to translate their thoughts through imagination. The technical skills involved in the process of creation not only increases their mind’s processing skills but allows them to refine their fine motor skills.

Moral Values

Moral values play an essential role in any student's life. They help build a positive character with traits such as compassion, respect, kindness, and humility. These classes help equip the child with an innate compass that guides their decisions throughout their life and shapes them into upstanding, good citizens.


Gardening ties students to the social and material history of the land. The demonstration of local, traditional gardening techniques and the traditional uses of plants introduces children to the applied concepts of biology and teaches them the importance of heritage and environmental awareness. The maintenance of a school garden offers an opportunity for children to attain responsibility and independence while also learning how to communicate as a team.


Practising yoga helps students at a physical level by improving their flexibility, balance, coordination, and overall fitness. Yoga also promotes emotional balance by encouraging self-awareness and self-acceptance, creating children who implement mindfulness in their day-to-day life with clarity and confidence. This helps their mind, body and spirit to remain harmonious with one and another.


In order to be a citizen of the 21st century world, general knowledge is of paramount importance. Not only does this allow the children to have awareness of current affairs, it also teaches them observational and critical thinking skills, allowing them to tap into the unlimited resources that life presents to them. Handwriting is an important component too, to ensure that the children are understood as well on paper as they are verbally.
