Evaluation & Promotion


A system of continuous and comprehensive evaluation is followed in our school. A student's academic progress is determined by his performance in unit tests, periodic tests, half-yearly and final examinations. They are graded according to aggregate performance and promoted to the next class at the end of each academic year. Detailed subject reports, Housemaster's reports and Medical reports are sent to parents to apprise them about the overall progress of their wards.
