In keeping with our commitment to providing learning opportunities of the highest standards, JIS always ensures that the curriculum is comprehensive in breadth and depth and that the latest pedagogical practices are adopted to optimize the teaching efforts and learning strategies. A vertical alignment of the curriculum through K-12 ensures acquisition of progressive levels of knowledge and skills and connectivity of learner experiences, which prepares students for the National (ICSE) and International curricula. The horizontal curriculum alignment supports inter-disciplinary learning.
The roadmap for teachers across K-12 makes explicit the expectations for instruction and assessment, with the aid of educational research and an understanding of the 21st century context in which they are teaching. Our teachers focus on fostering in students lifelong learning skills such as inquiry and critical thinking; self-management and social skills; investigation and problem-solving and effective communication skills. They use a mix of whole-class, group and individual activities and instruction that encourages active learning and open discussions, where the ideas of students are both valued and respected.
Students are at the heart of academics at JIS. Learning is always kept challenging, varied, supported, relevant and engaging. Teachers extend themselves within and after school-hours to support, clarify doubts and motivate students, in addition to facilitating enrichment programmes. Teachers regularly assess the impact of teaching strategies and the level of student performance. The School provides timely and meaningful information that helps parents remain advised and abreast of their child’s attainments and enables them to support on-going progress.
The JIS Learning Center provides technology and media resources supporting our learning objectives. Our Learning Center is less about ‘housing’ information, but more about connecting learners and constructing knowledge. A web-based package, which will allow access to both print and electronic resources, from any computer with internet access, either within the walls of the school, or from anywhere in the world, is being put in place.
Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) is a historical development in Examination reforms in School education propounded by CBSE in the recent years. It refers to a system of school based evaluation of a student that covers all aspects of a student development. It is a developmental process of student which emphasizes on continuity in evaluation and assessment of broad based learning and behavioral outcomes.
Practicing the spirit of CCE Jhadeswar Group of CBSE Schools emphasize the evaluation of identified aspects of students ‘growth and development’ in a continuous process rather than an event, built into the total teaching-learning process and spread over the entire length of academic session. IN practice it is observed the regularity of assessment, frequency of testing, diagnosis of learning gaps, use of corrective measures, retesting and feedback of evidence to teachers and students for their self evaluation.
Every attempt is made to cover both the scholastic and the co-scholastic aspects of the students’ growth and development. Since abilities, attitudes and aptitudes can manifest themselves in forms other than the written word, the term refers to application of variety of tools and techniques (both testing and non-testing) and aims at assessing a learner’s development in areas of learning, like:-
Aspects of Evaluation
- Scholastic and Co-Scholastic Assessment
In order to implement Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation, both Scholastic and Co-Scholastic aspects are given due recognition. In the process of such a holistic assessment an ongoing and comprehensive profile for each learner is maintained in an honest, encouraging and discreet way. Our teachers frequently reflect, plan and implement remedial strategies, to retain the child’s ability and articulate what has been learned over a period of time and conduct periodic assessments. These assessments are of many forms and as comprehensive and discreet as possible. Weekly, fortnightly, or quarterly reviews on the chosen learning areas are generally conducted to promote and enhance not just learning and retention among children, but their soft skills as well.
- Scholastic Assessment
- Formative Assessment
- Summative Assessment
Our Class Room
Academic standards determinea student's future career. Thus at Jhadeswar it is vigilantly planned to bring out the best in the child. Various Scholastic activities have been framed in a student friendly way to suit their learning abilities & at the same time instilled in them confidence & enhancing a good academic growth.
Jhadeswar International Schools believein holistic approach towards education with its value based approach in teaching methodology, course contents and bringing in transformation in the personality of the individuals. Education at here is invigorating and rejuvenating in its true sense.
It has always been a concern of the school not to over-burden the students. We see whether a student gets free time for games, recreation, reading of interesting books, magazines and newspapers and reading hobbies and above all doing some social service which equally is important to bring them up into useful citizens. Keeping in view of the above, home tasks have been excluded for the students upto class II as a directive of the CBSE. Carefully planned home tasks in the forms of projects and assignments are given to the students from class III-V as alternate home tasks.
We thrust Special care and attention upon our students who are slower in learning through our Regular Remedial Classes. Students' doubts, quarries and confusions are erased away in these classes. A student slow at a particular subject is paid extra time and attention by the teacher concerned. A class sometimes is grouped into different learning groups according to their learning levels and abilities and is dealt by the teacher accordingly. Students' feedback towards understanding different subjects in the classroom is taken. A remedial class as taken just after the end of all regular classes helps a student to fully understands a day's discussion.
- Students in Kindergarten, Class I & II have Oral and Interactive Activities for Formative Tests.
- For Class III to VIII and IX & X there would be SIX Tests under Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) that includes FOUR Formative Assessments and TWO Summative Assessments. All the tests will be considered for gradation in deciding the Promotion of the students to the higher class internally up to Class VIII and in Class IX & X as prescribed by the Board Time to time. In Summative Assessments students shall be examined on the syllabus in different subjects prescribed only for the Term.
- After the completion of every examination the progress of the students are informed in grades.
- Class XI examination will be conducted by the school as Internal Examinations. The examination would be conducted in theory as well as in practical, depending upon the nature of the subject(s). Marks/grades will be awarded for individual subjects. No overall division/distinction/aggregate shall be awarded.
- In order to be declared as having passed the Class XI Examination a candidate shall obtain 33% marks in all the subjects. The pass marks in each subject of examination shall be 33%. In case of subject involving practical work a candidate must obtain 33% marks in theory and 33% in practical separately in addition to 33% marks in aggregate in order to qualify in that subject.
- Class XII examination will be based on the syllabi as prescribed by the Board for Class XII from time to time. The Board will conduct the external examinations at the end of Class XII.
Methods and Techniques used in Play School
- Use of symbols and logos: Using visualization techniques is the most effective strategy to support early learning. Children's vocabulary would be expanded by naming well-known brands or symbols. One of the most effective ways to teach the kids is through the use of flashcards.
- Naming and matching activities can be done in the classroom with alphabet cut-outs brought in by the teachers. There should be an item in the set for each letter of the alphabet. Ask the kids to name the alphabet after which they should select an object to name using that alphabet.
- Multiple activities: It is best to move between activities every few minutes to keep kids from getting bored because they have relatively short attention spans. If you give them a task that takes a long time, they might not finish it well and might quit before the end. The exercises should be carried out by teachers with this in mind.
- Gardening: Bringing kids near to nature through outdoor activities like gardening is the best method to introduce them to the natural world. Taking a break from the tests or lectures is a fantastic stress reliever. a significant aid to personal development or growth.
- Creating regulations: It is essential to create guidelines at the start of the school year that will aid teachers in delivering their lectures on time. Instead of disciplining a youngster who misbehaves, attempt to explain their error to them politely.

Secondary school is schooling that prepares young students for higher classes. It helps in their academic, mental, and emotional growth and development and prepares them for the meticulousness required for higher education.
- Secondary school is the next level after primary school. Secondary schools are also called middle schools that consist of grades 6th, 7th, and 8th, and grades 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th which are considered high school.
- Secondary school is the bridge between elementary school and high school. The way elementary school education prepares students for middle school and secondary school, similarly, the secondary school prepares students for the meticulousness of high school and higher education at colleges and universities.
- In secondary school, there are certain subjects considered compulsory, but in high school, the fields of study get divided into three main disciplines: science, commerce, and arts.
- Students can select any one of these three disciplines for high school, that is grades 10th to 12th. They can study the subjects of their choice in depth further at the university level after successful completion of high school.
- Secondary school and high school are the last rungs of the educational ladder and are considered compulsory in most countries. Upon completion of high school, students can opt for further education in any stream they like or for employment in the field of their choice.
