Heritage Xperiential Learning School (HXLS) is known for its commitment to an experiential project-based pedagogy and integrated curriculum. In just over a decade, HXLS has established a formidable reputation for itself as a progressive, innovative school. HXLS has regularly found representation in the top 10 schools of the country and has been recognized as the top co-ed day school in India in the Education World India School Survey Rankings, 2019.
The school’s international programme has two campuses. The Heritage International Xperiential School is located in DLF Phase 5 (from academic session 2020/2021). The middle and senior schools are located in sector 62, Gurgaon. Both campuses are fully air-conditioned with treated fresh air (TFA). Both schools have state of the art infrastructure which includes sports facilities, makerspaces (design thinking labs), visual and performing arts facilities.
The experiential learning approach used by HXLX ensures that learning has an authentic purpose, is engaging and instrumental in helping students address complex problems and find meaningful solutions. Experiential learning accelerates learning since ‘learning by doing’ helps to develop the vital skills of critical thinking, problem-solving and effective decision-making. Such an enabling environment provides equal opportunities for collaboration in which each child’s contribution is valued.
The International School follows IB PYP in the junior grades, Cambridge curriculum in the middle grades and prepares students for the IGCSE examination in Grade 10 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in Grades 11 and 12.
The International School’s faculty is drawn from international schools across the world. It is supported by an in-house team of instructional coaches and curriculum designers who work continuously with the teachers inside and outside the classroom to help them hone their practice towards realising their potential. Its leadership team consists of alumni from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, an alumnus of the Harvard Business School, an international associate of University College London as well as other experienced educators from around the world.
Quarterly academic fees for the school year 2019/2020 range from INR 100,000 (Nursery and KG) to INR 197,500 (Grades 11 and 12).
Fee payment is flexible with the option to pay quarterly or annually.
For new admissions, there is a one-time joining fee of INR 165,000 along with a refundable security deposit equivalent to one quarter’s academic fees.
From the headmaster
"At Heritage, we have begun a journey to create students who are independently minded, creative thinkers, who will become value-driven citizens of our global society. For them to own their own learning we must abandon reliance on teacher-directed, teacher- taught, and teacher- delivered schooling in the pursuit of student-owned, teacher-facilitated learning. Increasingly, our students are accessing a rich, broad and balanced curriculum, as critical partners in their own learning."
From the parents
“I am very happy with the way my child has settled into the school. He receives a lot of personal attention due to the small, intimate community that the Heritage International programme has created and the school's focus on experiential learning with a focus on global perspectives is commendable.”
– Vidya Chari, Parent of Grade 7 student
“My children love the school. They are not only learning a lot but they also have fun in the school with their friends and teachers. The teachers are very supportive and I am happy to send my children to Heritage.”
