Academic Curriculum

Primary and Middle

Primary Year Programme

The curriculum is activity based learning with hands on experience and extensive co-curricular activities.

NPS is committed to imparting a strong foundation to children of grades 1 to 5 in various disciplines such as English, Mathematics, Social Science, Life Science, Language Studies, Environment Science and Information Technology.

A continuous and comprehensive assessment pattern has replaced the traditional examinations in the Primary Year Programme.

In order to remove the tedium in classroom, a wide range of classroom technique of teaching is used - such as group discussions, seminars, projects, and several unique resources have been developed on the lines of ‘do and learn’ technique. This makes the entire learning process a thoroughly enjoyable one.

Yoga, music, art, craft and a host of other such activities are woven into the curriculum framework to expose children to various other pursuits.

Students start using Math Lab from Grade 1 which helps them sharpen their analytical skills.

Establishing good work habits like persistence, independence, time-management and appreciation of values begin at this stage.

Middle Year Programme

CChildren enter the “Middle School” in Grade 6. In Grades 6-8 the programme is designed as per CBSE curriculum with interactive, hands on sessions. Students are taught to handle the semester portions gradually to get trained to appear for the board examination in the senior classes.

In middle school, students prepare to tackle deeper and more discreet subjects with specialist teachers facilitating the learning process. The programme helps children to prepare in depth for Grades 9 and 10. We align our curriculum to rigorous standards, preparing our students to undertake the board examinations at Grade 10.

In Middle Year Programme there are many enrichment activities. The Middle School curriculum focuses on:

  • Helping students “learn how to learn”
  • Developing effective work habits
  • Developing self- confidence
  • Developing conceptual understanding
  • Building background knowledge

As students transition from childhood through adolescence, Middle school offers a caring, safe and supportive environment in which students can thrive on change, prepare for high school and establish good habits of mind for lifelong learning.
