Quranic Studies and Namaz
For Muslim pupils, Quranic Studies is a compulsory subject. Non Muslims may offer Ethics as an alternative subject. In the Secondary classes, selected verses of the Quran are taught with meanings and interpretation.
The Secondary Section students offer congregational ‘Zuhr’ prayers daily as an integral part of the curriculum.
The Academic Year
The Academic Year is from April to March for the Matriculation stream and from August to May for O Level.
Examination And Assessment
The Academic Year is divided into two terms.
Student progress and performance is assessed by marked assignments or projects, tests and examinations in each term.
A detailed report is provided to the parent at the end of each term, showing the aggregate achievement, the student’s strengths and areas of weakness, if any.
The school offers academic support for students who are in need.
A pupil found to be weak in learning attends remedial classes until he/she catches up with the level of the class.
A pupil found too weak to benefit from regular classes in any subject may be removed from the class during the periods of that subject, and is given double the number of periods with a group of students at his/her level.
Pupils with Learning Difficulties such as Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, problems with Retention, etc. that prevent them from acquiring the expected level of success get the personal attention of the Special Education Teacher.
The school management believes that professional development of teachers is essential and an ongoing process. Hence the Quality Enhancement Cell among other issues also dedicates its resources to provide in-service professional development opportunities which helps teachers keep up with issues and current trends in education and also provide opportunity to learn other skills as well. The teachers are also encouraged to attend online and school sponsored face to face workshops and professional development sessions conducted by external teacher development organizations.
