LEARNING IS FUN - CHILD CENTERED APPROACH
We are proud of the best quality of teaching & training at the pre-primary level. The system which is set up here is not only to teach the child but to nurture him/her. Learning by play way methods is the pedagogy of the school.
We clearly believe that effective teaching and learning can only take place in an orderly environment and that ‘good order is the foundation of all good things’. Our class rooms provide a friendly & stimulating learning environment that allows children to work in groups or individually without distraction.
Towards this goal, the school has set up an olfactory & oratory lab, which is well equipped with educational toys, training equipments and small library to develop their basic psychomotor, cognitive & effective skills. Reading habit is inculcated right from this age through picture reading books.
Our tiny tots have an access to computer lab with the latest software. Computer aided learning has also been provided to pre-primary classes. The school provides maximum opportunities to recognize & encourage the talents of students by helping them to remove their stage fear & be a good public speaker. Many activities are organized in the school like short trips. Awareness of the environment, color concept, learning out bound experiences, health & hygiene workshops are done to explore the best.

The integrated approach incorporates active participation in the Arts & Community service, in addition to the study of languages & academic.

RESEARCH BASED LEARNING APPROACH FOR SENIOR CLASSES
To learn by doing
We believe that all students should have a thorough grounding in the sensible use of information technology and we are constantly expanding the facilities available to our students. We have online connection which is networked throughout the school & the students can use it at home also by using their assigned passwords.
The school provides regular practical facilities in adequately equipped labs for Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Commerce, Computer, Geography, Languages, Mathematics, General environment studies etc. All are equipped with modern technology. All these modern labs have been set up to teach children through visual & tactile senses to understand abstract concept so that learning can be fun not a fear. All the students are taken to these labs as per their schedule to make them aware of the world as learning by doing helps them in reviewing and reinforcing scientific and experimental concepts and developing investigative skills.
Since the last years, we have been successful in organizing the science exhibition, quizzes and seminars. All participants present their well-prepared & high quality submissions. These opportunities motivate the students to explore & invent something new. Enquiry based learning inspire students for a research oriented approach to the curriculum.
NEW EVALUATION SCHEME
Continuous & comprehensive evaluation pattern is being followed throughout the school except for std. XI & XII. The formative & summative assessments will be considered according to the level of the child’s scholastic & co-scholastic level. No formal exams will be given for Std. PP-I to Std. III. The students will be assessed regularly & complete cumulative record will be maintained thoroughly.
In this rapidly changing scientific world, we need to change in every sphere of activity in consonance with the changes taking place globally. We are scaling greater heights day by day in scholastic as well as co-scholastic areas with the sustained efforts of the management, academic as well as non academic staff of the students.
Homework is an essential and compulsory element of school life given in order to:
- enable students to work on their own
- consolidate the topics covered in lessons
- prepare students for future lessons
The amount of homework given varies with the subject and the age of the students and each one is given homework, time table and the syllabus to ensure that the load is evenly spread throughout each week. In addition to this, all students are issued with a planner and they are expected to write in the homework set on a daily basis. The note-books will be monitored in school by the teachers but we expect you to guide your wards in completing their homework to create good homework habit.
We rely on strong support & interest from home to maintain a high level of achievement for each and every member of the school. Yet, in the day boarding system we take much of the responsibility of parents also to guide the students personally by keeping 8:1students- teacher ratio. Students are also provided healthy & varied diet which is prepared in extremely hygienic atmosphere. We provide buses also to send them back home at late hours.
SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS
We recognize that all the students are individuals and that some students have more pressing and persistent learning difficulties. Individual Education Plans are drawn up for all the students with identified special education need to ensure that we provide specific help and guidance to those who require it. This may also entail discussion with outside agencies.
