Fikar School’s Education Concept We believe that every child has potential which is unique and make him/her different with others. Those children, as Students, should focus on their own potentials to fulfill the need of each work field in the real life, so every work field is handled by the greatest talented human resources that are really capable of doing their function. We work to make it happen in Fikar School. We provide students with a unique combination of education system. We do not only teach students in the classroom with a very interesting teaching method of Project Based Learning, but the greatest thing we have in Fikar School is the Coaching method. Coaching session is regularly and privately done by the Coach and each student of Fikar School. There are three things that influence the coaching session. They are:
Talent test is done to analyze the intelligences that students have. It deals with theory of Multiple Intelligences by Howard Gardner which categorizes intelligences into eight. They are:
- Spatial – visual intelligence
- Linguistic – verbal intelligence
- Interpersonal intelligence
- Music intelligence
- Bodily – kinesthetic intelligence
- Intrapersonal intelligence
- Logic – mathematic intelligence
In sharing session, each student is going to build a plan for his/her future. It is going to be a lively discussion between the Coach and the student. The plan is going to be monitored, at least, once a month to control the on-going achievement of it.
Since no single talent test can have 100% accurate result, we make it only as one of the tools used in coaching session. We use observation as one of the effective tools to see students’ potentials. Every component of school is going to observe every student’s activities in school and discuss it in the teacher’s meeting. So the coach can get more overview to develop every student’s potential.
