Leadership is the School,s USP: The School's strategic management, long term perspective planning, teacher development and shaping the learning environment, is carried out professionally under the guidance of the Chief Executive and his specialized team of Directors

Social responsibility through rural education


World-class infrastructure and environment conducive to excelling in academics, sports and creative pursuits

Q:What is the student strength in each class, at Indus?
A:

Each class has a maximum strength of 25 students and the school itself has a maximum teacher-taught ratio of 1:12. This enables customized attention to each pupil.

 

Q:How is discipline facilitated?
A:

We believe that discipline is a value and should become a way of life. One cannot become a leader or seek excellence in any area of life, unless one is self-disciplined.


Our idea of discipline is not a set of rules and regulations which are imposed externally on a child. Discipline is all about self-management. We avoid all corporal punishment and even harsh reproof. Self-discipline is inculcated by embedding sound traditional values and social sensitivities. Having small-sized classes with a teacher-taught ratio as low as 1:12 ensures individual attention and personal care. Moreover, the Principal, Vice Principal, Director - Pastoral Care, and Director - Administration live on campus, to oversee the ethics practiced by faculty members and students.

 

Q:What is the student assessment pattern of the School?
A:

At the pre-primary level, emphasis will be on motor, oral and creative skills.


At the primary level, the School lays stress on continuous assessment that includes projects, assignments, class tests, group activities, self-reflection sessions and School excursions based on multiple intelligences. This helps teachers evaluate what the students already know, in order to plan the next stage of learning.


At the middle school level, continuous assessment will be supplemented with summative assessments at the end of each term. This would include written, oral and practical tests.


At higher secondary level, both formative & summative assessments are made on the basis of presentation, reports, test papers, practicals, projects and examinations.
