High School

Our children are encouraged to be creative and therefore every opportunity is taken to develop their confidence, knowledge, self-esteem and life skills through technology, physical education and the creative and performing arts.

From Upper Primary ( 6th and 7th std),students move into High School ( 8th, 9th and 10th std).

The core subjects of Mathematics, English, Science, Geography, History , Political Science, Information & Communication Technology (ICT) and additional languages (Kannada and Hindi) as well as the supporting subjects PE, Yoga, Dance, Arts and crafts forms an integral part of their learning.

It is our intention to seek a better balance and give more equal status to all the subjects we must cover while recognizing that proficiency in Literacy and Numeracy underpins a person’s ability to make sense of the world. Accordingly, our children are encouraged to be creative and every opportunity is taken to develop their confidence, knowledge, self-esteem and life skills through technology, physical education and the creative and performing arts. Through the curriculum we aim to celebrate diversity and challenge discrimination.

Our students are prepared for the board exams through tutorials and coaching methods. Students are assigned academic mentors who guide them throughout High school, so that students can excel in their board exam performance.

Special emphasis is given to value education as we recognize the needs of adolescence . Counselors are available to recognize issues related to adolescence and help them cope with the academic and other psychological stress related to teen age.

Students of High School are given coaching in various sports like Cricket, Volleyball, basketball, Kabbadi, Karate and Chess. Experts from these sporting fields are invited by the School to coach students.

The riding club of Vidya Vikas opens its doors to our students. Students can take up riding lessons at the club at a concessional and preferential rate.

Assessment

Assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning process and is a tool which aids our planning for learning. We track children’s achievement, attitude and progress closely. Children are encouraged to work with teachers to identify where they are with their learning, what their targets are, and what steps they need to take in order to achieve their targets. We set medium and short term targets with the children which personalizes their learning so that they can achieve their full potential.
