Academic Procedures

Internal Assessment / Assignments

A student’s academic progress is monitored in various ways: informally by the teacher’s observation, and more formally by assessment of class work, tests and examinations. We realize, however, that even the best designed tests and examinations are able to evaluate only limited areas of a student’s development, and we are, therefore, constantly looking for more effective ways to assess and report on the overall progress of students.

In all classes a progress report on each student is sent to parents at the end of each term. Parents are strongly advised to attend Parent-Teacher Meetings, where they can discuss all aspects of their child’s progress in more detail. When necessary, arrangements for such meetings are only made through Principal or Head Teacher.

Junior Curriculum

In classes up to and including Class VI, all students follow the same curriculum. At the end of Class VI, the students are offered the following program.
