The knowledge and skills gained during the Middle School years equip the students with a firm academic foundation to pursue a variety of educational options in the future. At this stage, students have the choice of a curriculum leading to the All India Secondary School Examination conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Delhi.
At the onset of Secondary school, we try to connect our students’ natural strengths and bent of mind, and channel them through languages and subjects of their choice. By this time, the child’s mind, filled with scientific curiosity, is catalyzed by a growing objectivity. Knowledge, and an activity-based approach to the sciences, makes the child think in more inventive ways. The humanities, fine arts, performing arts and a host of co-curricular activities including sports, prepare the child for a wholesome and liberal attitude to life and relationships.
The Secondary School Programme
The Secondary Years comprise Grades 9 and 10. The school has accreditations from the CBSE.
CBSE is more content-oriented and has its mainstay in giving students a solid foundation in theoretical knowledge.
Curricular Practices in Secondary School
Developing the skills of articulation in written and oral communication – the focus is on analysis and application of information assimilated from various sources.
. Information Technology is integral to our curriculum and we deliver a very successful and effective student computer program.
Our assessments prescribe international benchmarks and are carried out based on observations, projects, activities, research and presentations, and regular assessments. Authentic, application-based and evaluative learning methods are encouraged in place of mere rote learning.
Bi-annual Summative term exams – for Grade 9 &10, there are structured and Pre-Final exams as well, to orient students about the expectations of the Board Exam.
Extended learning opportunities in the form of field trips and guest lectures.
Weekly student-led assemblies.
Co-Curricular activities include sports, PE and exposure to inter house cultural, fine arts and oratorical events. Students of Grades 9 and 10 also choose one co-curricular activity that they will aim to excel at during the course of the academic year.
The school has implemented the scheme of studies as per the CBSE Curriculum and follows the Evaluation as suggested by CBSE in all the classes, CBSE envisages that every learner is to be evaluated over the entire period of learning schedule rather than a one-slot three hour examination at the end of a course of learning.
The CBSE is aiming at a system of evaluation which does not just mean measurement of the level of learning outcomes but more so an approach for further improving the system. It needs to be diagnostic and formative in nature to provide remedial help to the students. We hope that with the cooperation and support of the parents, we shall be able to make a success of this system which is a path-breaking initiative taken by the C.B.S.E. to aspire for holistic development of the students in a conducive environment.
The assessments in each semester will comprise of Written tests, activities, oral assessments, quizzes, debates, projects, etc These assessments are carried out to provide continuous feedback to both the teachers and the learners to take decisions regarding appropriate modifications in the transactional procedures and learning activities.
