About

Primary School

Subjects taught at the primary school level include English, Arithmetic, General
Awareness, one second language (Hindi) and Moral Science. All languages are taught with a balanced emphasis on both the written as well as the spoken aspects. Students from class I onwards study one third language (Odia).

“General Awareness" is a combination of Science, Social Studies and General Knowledge, and encompasses what we believe a child should be aware of at every age. We have formulated our own syllabus for General Awareness with an emphasis on activity-based learning. The activities include the use of audio-visual aids, art, craft work, map work, experiments, field trips, projects and group discussions. These activities are followed by extensive written work.

Homework and Tuition
It is the policy of the School that all work should be completed in school at the primary level. At the end of every day, one period is assigned where revision work is completed under the supervision of the class teachers.

Assessment

No formal tests are conducted for the primary section. After every topic a review is done, and the performance of the student is noted. The aim is to ensure that the students have understood the course work and do not resort to rote learning. Thus, the students are continuously assessed and all subject teachers give a detailed report at the end of every term. The class teacher, head of the junior section and the headmaster continuously monitor each child's performance. Commendations are issued on a weekly basis to encourage the children to excel in academics. Certificates and medals are awarded at the end of the year to the most promising students.

Junior School

Classes VI , VII & VIII

Subjects taught at the middle school level include English, Arithmetic, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History & Civics, Geography, Moral Science, General Knowledge, Computer Science, one second language and one third language.

Computers

Apart from the theory covered in the computer science portions, students are given extensive practical training. This includes a more rigorous understanding of spreadsheets, database management, graphics, internet and basic programming. Several projects are also assigned by subject teachers, which have to be completed using the computer.

At the middle school level, homework is assigned on a daily basis. However, it is targeted and there is a specific timetable to ensure that the child is not over burdened. Students who need extra tutorials are coached. All students are given projects in addition to the regular class work to enhance their understanding of various subjects. Exceptionally bright students are enrolled in an accelerated program, which is conducted on Sundays and during holidays.

The pattern for the senior school level is similar to that of the middle school except that the third language choice is dropped and more classes are assigned to science and social studies. Rigorous training is also imparted to prepare the students for the board examination.
