PRE – SCHOOL

The preschool programme (Nursery, Junior and Senior KG) aims at fostering happy and productive teaching learning environments that are conducive to the growth of multiple intelligences as well as social and fine motor skills. Teaching is interactive and often transacted through storytelling, reading books and muppet and puppet shows. The children ‘learn by doing’ they participate in various hands on activities and right from an early age are trained to have a global outlook. An integrated approach is followed where seven pedagogies of teaching are applied. The focus is on enhancing creation, imagination, communication, self-reflection and physical, emotional, social development.

After Senior KG, parents have the option to continue with Primary schooling at JNS or opt for the Primary Years Programme at JNIS.

PRIMARY SCHOOL

In the primary classes (Std. I to IV) we believe 'Direct Experience' is the basis for all learning. The curriculum in the primary school is organized according to the fourfold interests of the child – in conversation, inquiry, construction and artistic expression.

The curriculum is designed in house to stimulate the reasoning ability in a child, thus preparing the way for the development of a scientific mind. Project Assisted Method of Instruction is followed which leads to collaborative learning. Thematic teaching takes place due to which children get complete information on a particular topic.

Teaching goes beyond the text books. Regular visits and field trips to parks, Conservation centres etc. Sensitise them to the needs of the environment. Equal weightage is given to curricular as well as co-curricular activities.

After Grade IV, parents have the option to continue with Secondary schooling at JNS or opt for the Middle Years Programme at JNIS.

SECONDARY SCHOOL

The distribution of the curriculum is not isolated into branches of knowledge but an inter-disciplinary approach is adopted. In the middle school (Std V to VIII), teachers design the curriculum and select textbooks that offer creative educative experiences. 'Graded learning' provides experiences to the pupils relevant to their strengths, needs and interests. 'Project Work' supplements the theoretical acquisition of knowledge, understanding and application in every subject area.

Educational excursions, nature trails, exploration camps, monsoon treks and participation in co-curricular activities make the education programme a stimulating learning experience for all. Value Education fits into the curriculum design and offers a holistic approach to education.

After Grade VII, parents have the option to continue with Secondary schooling at JNS or opt for the IGCSE Programme at JNIS.
