Learning Programs

Practical learning does wonders when it comes to children learning at all age groups and in all spheres of life. Wisdom High International believes in this saying entirely. An extensive 3 day “Learning Program” schedule was laid out for students of Grade 1 to 12. Here children were let loose to use their creativity and ideas and “create”.

Students grade wise and level wise were given a certain topic to study on and then implement what they had learnt for e.g.- new concepts of floating sinking, tangrams, catapults, paper planes, robotics, water jets, telescope making, skimmer, how to convert used oil into fuel, jet toys etc. Students surely did wonders and lived up to the expectations of their mentors top the fullest.

Sports

Physical development is as important as mental and spiritual. Many intelligent and capable adults do not do well due to chronic ailments, laziness and an inability to work long hours. A robust and a fit person is always more productive and achieves more.

Wisdom High encourages a healthy balance of work and play. Students are encouraged to experience the challenge and reward of the sport, spirit of participation and pursuit of excellence through the diverse sports programme available at the school.

Students are grouped into houses to reinforce fraternal bonds and the spirit of camaraderie. There are four houses namely Earth, Fire, Water, and Air symbolizing Green, Red, Blue and Yellow.

Tie-up with MENSA India, Pune Chapter

Wisdom MENSA

MENSA is the largest and oldest high IQ society in the world. It is a non-profit organization open to people who score at the 98th percentile or higher on a standardized, supervised IQ or other approved intelligence test. MENSA is formally composed of national groups and the umbrella organization MENSA International, with a registered office in Caythorpe, Lincolnshire, England. The word mensa means "table" in Latin, as is symbolized in the organization's logo, and was chosen to demonstrate the round-table nature of the organization; the coming together of equals.

MENSA, the high IQ society, provides a forum for intellectual exchange. The word ‘MENSA’ comprises two Latin words: mens, which means “mind” and mensa, which means “table”, indicating that it is a round-table (open discussion) society of minds. Activities include the exchange of ideas through lectures, discussions, journals, special-interest groups, and local, regional, national and international gatherings; the investigations of members' opinions and attitudes; and assistance to researchers, inside and outside MENSA, in projects dealing with intelligence or MENSA.

Getting into MENSA is not easy. You have to score at or above the 98th percentile – the top 2% – on a standardized, professionally administered IQ test. This is typically a score of 130 or more. What does an IQ score of 130 mean? With standardized IQ tests, IQ tests are designed so that their scores have a ‘bell curve’ distribution in the general population with an average of 100. This curve has a peak in the middle where most people score and tapering ends where only a small percentage of people score. In statistics this distribution of scores is called a bell curve or normal distribution – as shown below.

Wisdom MENSA

The MENSA qualifying IQ score is a score that puts you in the top 2% of the population in a bell curve like this one. The MENSA qualifying score is 130 or higher, as shown below.

MENSA Qualifying I.Q Test Score

MENSA India is an emerging MENSA reflecting the diverse nature of both MENSA and India in its member body. The society has a presence in Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Delhi/NCR. Emerging chapters exist in Nasik and Baroda. MENSA India is proud of its Tribal MENSA Nurturing Program wherein it has tested more than 12000 children since 2002 and has contributed to their education and lives. Success has come with someone becoming a teacher to another even a line manager in an automobile engineering major.

Srujan Kale

Batch of 2011

Hi, My name is Srujan Kale. I graduated from Wisdom High International School in the year 2011 .

Being a part of the Mensa program in school was an amazing experience that changed the way I perceived and strived to attain my goals. The Intelligence Test helped me realize my own potential and the validation of being recognized as one of the top 1 percentile in the human population by a deemed and recognized instituition like MENSA motivated me to prove my mettle. I am greatful for the amazing guidance provided by my MENSA mentor Narayan who helped me channel my intelligence for improving myself as it is easy to go astray with a sharp but unharnessed mind. The MENSA seminars organized for us by the school never felt like a chore but like a relief after toiling the entire week of studying. Sometimes one may have a sharp mind but lack the human morality that guides us not to just do well for yourself, but for the others around you too. I am thankful to MENSA and Narayan for instilling in me a sense of morality and help me try to be a better person.

I completed my undergraduate education at University of California Berkeley in electrical engineering , and currently I am on course to complete my graduate education in Artificial Intelligence from the aforementioned university.

Thank you,
Srujan Kale.

Batch of 2011

I joined WHIS as a naughty and careless kid, as ignorant as any other kid at the young age of 10, eager and hungry to learn but mostly excited to be a part of an institution which, as it turns out is now the best school in Nashik. I joined WHIS in the year that it was established and I’m proud to say that it turned out to be one of the most crucial and correct decisions I have ever taken. We had incredible teachers who always encouraged us to ask questions, because “if you don’t ask questions how will you learn anything”, they said. This was as true then as it is now. The effort that everybody took to make my basics strong has helped me immensely in completing my B.E. in Automation and Robotics. I was introduced to the MENSA organisation in the 8th grade and was part of an incredible group who had given the MENSA aptitude test and were selected for the nurturing sessions. The nurturing sessions were incredible because they prompted us to challenge our brains, to think outside the box. I would like to thank the School and Sucheta ma’am for introducing me to MENSA and enabling me to do well in not just Academics but also all the extra-curricular activities. It has been 6 years since I passed out, but the memories are still fresh in my mind and I’ll cherish them forever.

Proud to be a part of a wonderful batch – The class of 2011.
