Academics

The School follows the CBSE curriculum and from Grade VI students use the NCERT textbooks. A comprehensive pattern of formative and summative assessments is followed for evaluation. In addition to academics, life skills and values are also assessed.

Hands on education, student-centric learning methodology, skill-based learning, are some of the concepts that we at The Shermount Public School have adopted to enrich academics.

It is a proven fact that the children being born in this digital world are far ahead in their thinking processes and there is a paradigm shift in the trends of education over the past decade.

Keeping in mind these shifting trends of education, The Shermount School offers a curriculum, which emphasizes activity oriented teaching and creates opportunities for the children to observe, explore, analyze and conclude thus making them independent learners.

Co- curricular activities complement and enhance the academic structure of the school.

To break the monotony of conventional teaching methods, the school brings in visiting faculty to teach earmarked portions of the curriculum and expat teachers to add the global dimension to the teaching and learning process

Curriculum

Pedagogy

Establishing worthwhile work habits, persistence, independence, time management and an appreciation of the value of learning itself begins early in the schooling process at NPS. Learning is structured to empower the students to share their thoughts and ideas. The Curriculum is designed to encourage team work. Learning takes place through group discussions, projects as well as hands-on activities and experimentation.

Emphasis is laid more on ‘learning by doing’ rather than rote-learning. Our teachers act as facilitators and guides throughout the learning process.

Board and Curriculum

CBSE has introduced a revised assessment scheme for Grade X from the academic year 2017-18. It comprises 80 marks weightage for the Board Examination (full year’s syllabus) and 20 marks weightage for internal assessment. Visual and Performing Arts, Physical and Health Education, Yoga and Work Experience are also compulsory. Discipline – attendance, sincerity, behavior and values – has been stressed upon and students will be graded on a 5-point scale. For the purpose of uniformity, the same assessment model will be replicated for Grades VI-IX.

Kindergarten

The Kindergarten is a dynamic environment in which we see significant developments in physical, emotional and intellectual growth from the formative years to graduation. These are the ‘Foundation Years’ during which early linguistic and arithmetic basics, scope for creative play and expression, physical fitness and constructive socialization are stressed upon to build childhood competencies. This is the time when good habits are instilled and a sense of identity and place take shape.

Great emphasis is laid on a child’s all-round development. For us academics is as important as extra-curricular activities. We work towards bringing out the latent talents of our children and hone their skills so that they achieve perfection in their respective spheres. There is a thoughtful balance between teacher-directed work and child-directed activities. Our children form attitudes about learning that last a lifetime. It is not surprising therefore that our children remain adventurous learners throughout their lives.

Storytelling, poetry recitation, singing, drama and dance are also a part of the Kindergarten programme which help enhance classroom learning. Emphasis is placed on understanding the child; his concentration levels, memory, reasoning and creativity.

A system of “Continuous Informal Evaluation”, based on class work, theme-based worksheets and observation sessions is followed.

The Primary School

The Primary School comprises Grades 1 to 5. The Teaching pedagogy of these years focuses on developing the intellectual capabilities.

As students move to and through the primary school we introduce them progressively to the world of integrated knowledge, while particularly strengthening their aptitude in the core subjects like English, Hindi, Mathematics, General Science and Social Science.

As a stimuli for reading and writing, from Grade 1 our students are introduced to the study of computers, appreciating that computer literacy is essential in the modern world. Children also start using the Math Lab materials from Grade 1, which help them sharpen their analytical skills. We encourage students in the primary school to do various projects in Environmental Science to create awareness about conservation of natural resources and the need for a clean and healthy environment. They learn to appreciate history, geography and the cultural diversity on Earth.

Students have Physical Training classes to develop their agility and fitness. Art and Music classes in the primary school create an interest and appreciation of these creative forms.

A well structured Writing Programme is also introduced in Grade 1 which is followed up to Grade 8, to train students to become skilled writers.

The Middle School

Life really comes alive with this vivacious and intelligent group of young teens, belonging to Grades VI, VII and VIII, who are exposed to a host of new experiences and activities, which help them establish their own identities and personalities.

Stepping into the Middle School, our students are ready to face more challenges and do an in-depth study in all subjects .To stimulate the spirit of enquiry and learning in the Middle School, students are engaged in investigatory projects in Math. The topics range from Algebra to Geometry pertaining to their level.

General Science is split into Physics, Chemistry and Biology and Social Science specializes as History-Civics and Geography. Students  participating in inter-house and inter-school activities, and choose from a variety of extra-curricular activities and classes offered by the school.
