Aims

  • Garden High is a school where pupils come first, and all else later.
  • The School thinks that education is concerned with pupils as persons, not with how they can be trained for a career.
  • The school encourages pupils to think for themselves, and tries to kindle their curiosity, so that they may venture out on their own beyond the beaten track of the syllabi.
  • The School does not try to impress with inessentials at the cost of what is essential: academic integrity and excellence.

Teaching Principle

  • At the nursery level, the child’s process of growing out of oneself is made happy and pleasant through an abundance of colour, play, music, rhyme, and rhythm.
  • At the primary level, the imparting of knowledge in various forms begins through the study of languages, literature and other subjects.
  • Pupils are encouraged to ask questions, voice their doubts, verify what they are told and taught.
  • They should be gently led to evaluate things in the light of their own experience, but at the same time be made aware of how these same things have been assessed by mankind over the centuries.

Teaching Method

Uniformity and accuracy are ensured through drawing up of lesson plans.
+

Teaching Method

  • Uniformity and accuracy are ensured through drawing up of lesson plans.
  • Depending on the subject concerned, the first stage of an assessment may consist of oral and/or blackboard work.
  • Before a pupil is asked to do any written work, answers to probable questions are discussed wherever possible. This is followed by class assignments which are corrected in detail, corrections of serious errors being entered in the body of the exercise itself.
  • Corrected assignments are sent to parents for scrutiny and signature.
  • Very little homework is set, and it consists mostly of handwriting, correction of errors, revision of work done in class, etc.
  • In the case of slow learners, specific tasks may be set by the teachers concerned.
  • All that a guardian needs to do is to supervise: see to it that the pupil does the work that he has been asked to do.

Teacher Pupil ratio

  • The teacher : pupil ratio never exceeds 1 : 20.
  • In addition, pupils have free access at all times not only to their teachers, but also to the Coordinators, Director (Nursery & Primary Department), Vice-Principal and Principal, who give them all the attention and help they need to solve their academic problems as also any others that they might have.

Remedial Classes

A pupil should not need any special help at home.
+

Remedial Classes

  • A pupil should not need any special help at home.
  • Additional guidance, if and when necessary, will be provided by the School by way of remedial classes at no extra charge. These classes may be held on the School premises or at the residence of a teacher of the School.
  • Recommending a pupil to attend these classes is not to be taken as an unfavourable assessment of his merit.On the contrary, such a recommendation assumes that a pupil has the capacity to do better and all that he needs is some special attention or guidance in some specific areas, and that also for some time.
  • The School earnestly requests a guardian to cooperate with it in this matter by ensuring that a pupil attends these classes regularly.
