X – Seed for Primary Grades

XSEED Education is a complete academic solution for schools. It raises student performance and builds quality in teaching inside classrooms. XSEED Living Knowledge System is an integrated curriculum, teacher training and assessment program for K-12 schools. This 5-step experiential learning approach was designed in 2007 after over five years of research by alumni from Harvard, Cambridge, MIT and IIM Ahmedabad. This approach was especially developed to match the existing syllabi of various boards, including CBSE and ICSE in India. In the classroom, XSEED replaces the one-step telling approach with a multi-step learning process since children learn best by action, followed by reflection and feedback.
