Middle School at ISN has a challenging and supportive environment, resulting in students who are confident, passionate and driven to succeed.
Approaches to learning : Students encounter different teachers, each with his or her teaching style, and are required to study several subjects involving a variety of tasks. To be able to cope up with these challenges requires interactive teaching and learning that provides coherence and consistency across all subject groups.
It is vital that we ensure students comprehend how to learn, to evaluate the effectiveness of their learning and find and develop the learning style that suits him/her best.
As the students enter grade VI their mode of assessment includes Term 1 (April-September)- Periodic-I & II and half Yearly Examination at the end of the term. Term-II (October-March) Periodic-1&II and annual examination at the end of the year. Unit tests, Revision tests in Google form and Doc’s are tools to continuously monitor student’s progress. If used effectively it improves the student’s performance while raising their self-esteem. This assessment is diagnostic and remedial in nature and provides effective feedback to the students.
