Academics

The Philosophy

Noble aims to provide academic excellence in a caring and structured environment. Each student is considered as an individual and as such we encourage them to understand and develop the uniqueness of their contribution to both school and society. We aim to build self-confidence and give all students a sense of success and morality in their achievement.

The Curriculum

“Tell me and I’ll Forget, Show me and I may not remember, Involve me and I’ll understand”

Noble International School designs and implements its own curriculum within the frame work of CBSE syllabi and tries to ensure that the students and their teachers have as much flexibility as possible to foster child centred learning. Noble follows CBSE CCE Pattern within which flexibility of methodology and the use of experiential learning systems are strongly encouraged. This helps eliminate the need to learn by meaningless rote and develop a healthy and positive attitude towards learning. Our system of evaluation takes into account the individualities of different children to provide adequate feedback on the student's learning without putting undue pressure. As the child progresses through the classes, the assessment is gradually modified to prepare them for self-motivated learning as well as external tests and competitive exams.

English will be taught as the core language and it will be the only medium of instruction for all subjects apart from Languages. The curriculum is designed in a way to develop high proficiency in English. More specifically it stresses both fluency and accuracy. Learning traditional grammar is delayed for later years of elementary school, that is, after the students have developed communicative competence.

Evaluation Policy

We believe in Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation of our students for their holistic development. Continuous stands for assessment of the student throughout the year not just at the end of a term. It may be done formally or informally using different techniques of evaluation. Comprehensive takes care of assessment of all round development of a child’s personality. A child will be assessed not only in terms of his knowledge about a subject but his participation in other activities also. Broadly, we assess a child’s growth in two areas- Scholastic and Co scholastic.

Scholastic areas include: - Formative and Summative assessments. Each term covers two formative assessments and one summative assessment. Also it includes one mid-term test in each term.

Co-Scholastic areas will be assessed on life skills, attitudes and values, literary and creative skills, scientific and aesthetic skills, health and physical education etc.

Grade 1 to 3: The students will be assessed on Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE), the evaluation process will be done by the teacher simultaneously during the class or through scheduled class test on all the subjects, thus no formal exams schedules. The assessment includes class work, homework, assignments, activities, oral tests, projects etc. A minimum of 8 cycles of CCE in an academic year will be conducted and a minimum of ‘C’ grade to be obtained by the student.

The whole academic year is divided in to two terms.

First Term: - April to September

Second Term: - October to March

The performance of a child in scholastic area will be assessed in terms of marks. Marks will be converted into grades as per the following pattern:

    • Every absence must be enlisted in the leave record page of school diary and signed by parent/guardian.
    • Absence for more than three days should be informed to the principal in writing.
