  3. Continuous evaluation is an integral part of the education process and a child is appreciated for the following four aspects: attitude, behaviour, effort and improvement. There are no “examinations” in the pre-school years, only continuous evaluation.

Personality development today is an integral part of education. Both personality development and progress in academic performance form the basis of evaluation for the overall assessment. Teachers observe their students' personality traits throughout the year and award points accordingly. Students showing outstanding personality traits and good performance in studies are awarded merit certificates and stars from Montessori to class II. Children at the Primary level must acquire distinction in English, Hindi, Mathematics and must be well versed in Computers. These subjects have been considered as core subjects and are evaluated twice a month. This gives the teachers and parents a regular feedback of the children's performance in the core subjects and gives children an opportunity to improve their performance gradually. Other subjects such as Art and Moral Education are taught in correlation with the core subjects and are evaluated through project work.

  1. Parents are requested to collect the progress reports of their wards regularly on the dates announced by the school after every examination.

  7. Students losing books or damaging them will be asked to pay the cost of the books.
  8. All the library books issued to students must be returned before the commencement of the annual examination and clearance slips must be obtained from the librarian.

The school has well-equipped laboratories to facilitate experimental work in various sciences. The following rules are to be observed in the laboratories:

  1. Equipment for use in the laboratories will be issued to students as per rules laid down by each campus.
  2. No equipment is to be taken out of the laboratory without written permission.
  3. Any damage to the equipment during practical lessons will be borne by the students.
  4. Any item issued from the laboratories must be returned before the commencement of the annual examinations and a clearance certificate obtained from science teachers to allow the students to appear for their annual examinations.

In the junior section, subjects like General Knowledge, Moral education, Physical education, Art and Personality development are graded. This grading gives teachers an opportunity to assess the child’s development regularly instead of just twice a year and that too on the basis of marks obtained in tests. Teachers observe the students' behaviour throughout the year and then grade them. This helps students to concentrate more on the core subjects for which they are marked.

This step has reduced the stress of examination and has also reduced the number of examination days.
