Examination Policy and Promotions

Criteria for Promotion in Montessori Classes

Scholars are assessed on a five point scale in both scholastics and co scholastic areas. Promotion will be totally based on the whole year's performance screened through periodical neuro-linguistic worksheets and terminal assessments. As the formative years of a child are the most significant and need careful nurturing, the school primarily focuses on various integrated developmental activities such as motor skill development, language skill development, hand-eye co-ordination, eurhythmics, socio-emotional development etc. to make the education more meaningful, which is indeed the need of the hour.
Schools are not permitted to detain students in these classes according to CBSE.

However if a student is found struggling with the curriculum and consistently does not show any improvement at all, it is advisable to hold personal meetings with the parents to the counsel them about their child.

The sole objective of the first counselling session, which should take place after the first semester, is to give the child to an opportunity to work harder to perform better.

After regular monitoring of the performance of such children, the counselling should be repeated in February. In case the child scores below D in more than half of the subjects, it is indicative of the fact that the child will not be able to cope with the rigours of the next class. The parents are expected to make a written request to the school to retain the child in the existing class.
