Which Education Board is the school affiliated to? Is it the right choice for my child? How does it compare with other Boards like State and ICSE?
The school is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, Delhi (CBSE). It is a national education board and follows a syllabus developed by NCERT (National Council for Educational Research and Training). This association ensures
» a well researched curriculum which gets revised based on changing needs of children and society
» good supporting instructional material for the teachers at various levels of the school education
» emphasis on learning by doing, enhances application skill, analytical skill and problem solving skill
» organizes teachers training for new challenges.
CBSE conducts two key entrance exams AIEEE(Engineering) and NEET(Medical) for admission to professional institutions across the country and hence our students will benefit by studying a curriculum which forms the syllabus for these exams.
All other Education Boards are good as well and they vary based on areas of focus (e.g. the State Board include regional content in their syllabus). The final choice is a personal decision of the parent based on factors like transfers (in which case it is better to go for a national board).
