Heritage Xperiential Learning School (HXLS) Gurgaon (Formerly, The Heritage School, Gurgaon) is focused on deeper, authentic and inter-disciplinary learning. Founded in 2003 as a not-for-profit private co-educational school, HXLS today is a community of over 3100 students and an enviable student to staff ratio of 9:1. Although HXLS is just 14 years young, it has consistently been ranked among the top 5 day schools in India. Known for its progressive pedagogy and community bound curriculum, HXLS is also one of the few inclusive schools in India with a well- integrated special needs program. Although we offer 3 curricula (National Board, IGCSE and IBDP), we attempt to be curriculum agnostic through our own organically developed curriculum that stretches the boundaries of prescribed national and international curricula. Housed in a beautiful 13- acre campus, HXLS today is one of the most reputed learning communities for educators
 

OUR INSPIRATION

The last fourteen years have been a learning journey for the school. We are deeply inspired and committed to the philosophies of Kurt Han, Rudolf Steiner, Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi and J Krishnamurthy. Our curriculum has been designed and curated organically over the years and reflects some of these core learning principles - for our Students, Parents and Teachers.

Many of our academic protocols and processes have been inspired by cutting edge research in the field of education. Some of them include Making learning visible (Hattie), Understanding by Design (Higgens and Mctighe), Curriculum mapping (Jacobs), Continuous School Improvement, Data teams and Response to Intervention (Bernhardt), Danielson Framework, Marzano protocols, integrated projects/learning expeditions (Levy and Berger from Expeditionary Learning Schools, USA), student internships (Littky from Big Picture Schools), makers space (Trishman from Harvard Project Zero) etc.
