Presidency School

High School (Grades IX and XII)

The Secondary Grades are a veritable bee hive of activity. We believe that every student has the potential to rise up to challenges, and hence high demands are placed on the students, with a view to stimulate high achievement. Each learner receives personal attention and guidance.

The work of our students is monitored on a day-to-day basis, through class work, home work and projects. Comprehension of course materials is tested, unit -wise and through mid-term tests and semester end examinations. Progress reports and parent teacher meetings are a regular part of this program. However, we don’t lose sight of the importance of extracurricular activities that form an integral part of the curriculum.

Students actively participate in planning and organization of school celebrations and competitions and are encouraged to test their skills at the Inter School competitions. Classroom activities such as elocutions, debates, skit presentations, Wordsmith, and creating and presenting advertisements help students to develop oratory skills, discover the power of creativity, and overcome stage fear. The School Cabinet provides a valuable training ground for leadership.

Personality grooming is ensured through workshops on Life Skills, Value Education, Vocational Counseling and Counseling for teenage problems. Regular counseling sessions, in partnership with groups like Alma Mater, help in bringing about a sea change in the attitudes of the students. Workshops on Career Counseling provide the requisite clarity and guidance to our future engineers, doctors and entrepreneurs. Professionals with the right expertise conduct these programs. Every attempt is made to ensure that our students leave the sheltered portals of Presidency as confident and positive individuals.
