Mount Litera Emerging Student Profile


Emergent Student Profile is our promise and our goal. Everything we do in the school strives to achieve this for each child. While each child will take a different path towards this profile, we run the school with the firm belief that it is this profile that will enable our children to be leaders of the 21st century.

The emergent student profile comprises three essential faculties:

Life Skills, Knowledge and Core Values.


Core values function as the foundation of leadership. Our Students will role model these values:
  • Integrity
    Do what you say; say what you do...you are your word.
  • Open Mindedness
    To have an open mind means to be willing to consider or receive new ideas and people with different outlook. It means being flexible and adaptive to new experiences, ideas and people. Being tolerant and accepting the fact that ‘others could be right with their differences too...’ To seek to understand before expecting to be understood. Cultivating an open mind is another valuable outcome of critical thinking and reasoning, an open mind helps us expand our horizons and be more diverse and inclusive.
  • Authenticity
    Authenticity is the alignment of head, mouth, heart, and feet - thinking, saying, feeling, and doing the same thing - consistently. This builds trust.
  • Sense of humour
    The capacity to see the flip side of life in the day to day situations and to come out of the bottlenecks of life, with a smile is indeed a great blessing, The power to see the amusing and amazing aspects of life with a perspective that can make you smile. Smile at life and smile at oneself at times. When one gets pitted against challenges and roadblocks, one tends to get frustrated and give up for the fear of failure. Looking for the lighter side of a situation gives one the courage learn from one’s mistakes and to face tougher ordeals.
  • Growth Mindset
    Students with a growth mindset believe that their intelligence can be developed over time through their own effort. They know that while not everyone has the same intelligence, everyone can learn and become smarter. The growth mindset helps children focus on their efforts. They are free to concentrate on becoming smarter rather than looking smart
  • Compassion
    Inculcating compassion can make our children aware of the world around them and it teaches tolerance towards different cultures and personalities. This enables children to be more sensitive and caring, that in turn leads to better relationships with others as they grow into adulthood.



    Knowledge, as defined at Mount Litera Schools, goes beyond the traditional boudaries of acadamic learning. Our students will gain knowledge in :












  • Higher Order Thinking Skills
    Higher-order thinking requires students to manipulate/process information and ideas in ways that transform their meaning and implications. This transformation occurs when students combine/compare their prior knowledge/experience with facts and ideas in order to synthesise, generalise, explain, hypothesise or arrive at some conclusion or interpretation. Manipulating information and ideas through these processes allows students to solve problems and discover new (for them) meanings and understandings.
  • Sports
    Sports and sportsmanship: Sports are essential not only for the physical fitness and growth of a child, but also for his mental growth. The importance of sports in education can be gauged by the way it helps in inculcating values such as dedication, discipline and responsibility in children, at the same time teaching them many relevant life lessons like team spirit, mental strength, constructive use of time, health, confidence, and decision making.
  • Arts (Fine performing and applied)
    The fine arts- Visual arts, music, drama and dance are fundamental ways of knowing, thinking and expressing. They cultivate the direct experiences of the senses, their goal is to connect the child’s expression/gesture/movements directly with his/her thoughts, emotions and feelings and thus build bridges between concrete and abstract. It enables children to gain an understanding of the whole.
  • Entrepreneurship
    The word “entrepreneur” is actually a verb meaning “a series of actions deliberately taken to get oneself into or out of something” Entrepreneurship education for middle and high school children is not just about business knowledge or even great financial literacy “The real value is helping young people see the world as an owner; helping them to discover that they can, in fact, direct their lives, even at their present age,” Cozewith, President of E-Youth, said. It is about life skills. The business activity is really the hook for engaging them in learning through a series of activities that let them experience different approaches to critical thinking, problem solving, working (well) with others, creative activities and even elements of innovation. It helps them to realize that they make choices all the time, that there are short and longer term consequences, and since they alone own their futures they must realize that they are accountable for the outcomes -- good and bad

Core values function as the foundation of leadership. Our Students will role model these values:

  • Effective Habits:
    Our character is a composite of our habits. Inspired by Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Mount Litera Schools have a series of programs during the duration of student’s stay that build effective habits for leading life.
  • Media Literacy
    Media literacy develops the ability to analyze critique and effectively use the media to find more information and make informed decisions.
  • Aesthetic Sense
    Aesthetic sense helps students appreciate the beauty that exists around them and contribute to it.
  • Metacognition
    Metacognition is the skill of knowing how we lern and our peculiar style of learning. This gives access to us removing the hidden barriers to our learning.
  • Risk Taking
    This is the skill of making your own decisions at the risk of making a mistake, rather than simply doing what you are told to by others.
  • Self-Management
    Self-Management plans are used to teach students to independently complete tasks and take an active role in monitoring and reinforcing their own behavior. An important goal in education is to faster self-reliance and independence.

So how is our Emergent Student Profile achieved? How do we ensure that the whole activity system of the school comes together? What happens at a Mount Litera Zee School, exactly?
Imagine a school in which the students – all of them – are so excited about school that they can hardly wait to get there. Imagine having little or no “discipline problems” because the students are so engaged in their studies that those problems disappear. Imagine having parents calling, sending notes, or coming up to the school to tell you about the dramatic changes they are witnessing in their children newly found enthusiasm and excitement for school, a desire to work on projects, research and write after school and on weekends. Imagine your children making nearly exponential growth in their basic skills of reading, writing, speaking, listening, researching, scientific explorations, math, multimedia skills and more!
