IGCSE is more practical and application-based. It provides students with an opportunity to select courses according to their interest in the subjects of science, humanities, languages and mathematics. The courses also provide them with an opportunity to mix these subjects with components of fine arts, visual arts, theatre, technical drawing, music, film-making, community service, etc. The syllabus puts emphasis on developing critical thinking, analytical skills, communication skills, investigative abilities, problem-solving techniques, teamwork, independent research and other qualities valued by all international universities. They have a broader spectrum of subjects that lead to all-round development and are more challenging than Indian educational boards and test student knowledge, not their memory and speed.
Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations celebrated 60 years in 2018. Our school is affiliated with the prestigious ICSE Board. The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) is committed to serving the nation’s children, through high quality educational endeavors, empowering them to contribute towards a humane, just and pluralistic society, promoting introspective living, by creating exciting learning opportunities, with a commitment to excellence.
As a premier National Examination Board of the country, the Council conducts the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (ICSE – Class X), the Indian School Certificate Examination (ISC – Class XII) and the Certificate of Vocational Education Examination (CVE- Class XII). The Council has always strived to incorporate the very best in its prescribed syllabi at the secondary and senior secondary levels, with Council affiliated schools being the cornerstone in the achievement of many an educational milestone.
It is a well-known fact that a strong foundation in the lower classes plays a vital role in forging life-long learning competencies. The Curriculum developed by the Council for Preschool – Class VIII, has been designed so as to enable children to be well-prepared and future ready and to lead them in a progressive and phased manner to derive full advantage of the ICSE and the ISC syllabi. The curriculum has been planned and organized in a systematic and scientific manner, keeping in view the prevalent trends and requirements in the field of education. The curriculum aims to provide a holistic and broad based education, taking into ambit all aspects of child behaviour, so as to equip them to meet the challenges in life and to develop their potential for lifelong learning. All efforts have been made to incorporate components that are vitally and organically related to the child’s life and his/ her immediate environment, interpreting for the child, its salient and significant features and permitting him/her to come in contact with some of its important activities.
