VI – X (SECONDARY)
Stepping into the Middle School, our students are ready to face more challenges and do an in-depth study in all subjects. General Science is split into Physics, Chemistry and Biology and Social Science specializes as History-Civics and Geography. English, Hindi, Tamil and Computer Science continue to remain as part of the curriculum. To stimulate the spirit of enquiry and learning in the Middle School, students are engaged in investigatory projects in all subjects.
As students progress through the senior years, we expect them to become increasingly independent learners with an interest in setting personal academic goals. It is our belief that regular guidance and testing provide young students with the self-discipline and confidence to handle more advanced senior tasks. Building self-esteem, self-respect and the courage to explore are qualities we seek to reinforce in our student body.
The High School also provides training to enhance communication skills and encourages students to participate in a wide range of inter-house and inter-school competitions in cultural and sporting activities.
Innovative and interactive workshops are conducted on issues related to adolescence. Career Counselling also forms an integral part at this level.
Keeping in mind the shifting trends of education, we offer a curriculum, which emphasizes activity oriented teaching and creates opportunities for the children to observe, explore, analyze and conclude thus making them independent learners. The interactive board turns a typical classroom into a fun learning environment. It enriches classrooms by providing hands on collaboration and creating the perfect learning setting.
The School follows the CBSE curriculum and from Class VI students use the NCERT textbooks for the Languages and Social Science. Science and Mathematics. Hands on education, student-centric learning methodology, skill-based learning, are some of the concepts that we at NPS have adopted to enrich academics.
