Pre-Primary and Early Primary (Nursey-Grade II)

Pre-Primary is the first step in education. According to the New Education Policy 2020, Early Childhood Education should ideally be flexible, multi- faceted, multi-level, play-based, activity based. At G. D Goenka, we aspire to achieve the same. We set the foundation for learning by engaging students’ minds with a wide range of learning mediums and teaching-learning resources. We ensure that our young children are happy, socially and emotionally confident individuals. We shape them for success during their formative school years with our structured curriculum which primarily focuses on Experiential Learning and the Montessori method of teaching. This provides an environment for our young children to enquire, explore and discover a great deal about themselves and their surroundings. Kindergarten is the grade whereby children enjoy the early implementation of Registration, Phonics, Early Reading, Literacy, and Numeracy. Such early implementation is cleverly disguised as learning through play, investigation and exploration due to the exemplary teaching methods and techniques. In Grades I and II as well, we endeavor to facilitate learning by providing them a nurturing and stimulating environment for them where they learn joyfully. We aid intellectual, emotional, and social
development and through the means of our rich curriculum we prepare our students for primary classes.

Primary (Grades III to V)

The curriculum in the Primary School aims to inculcate foundational knowledge and skills amongst the learners. The course content focuses upon domains that enhance the physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and cultural development of every child. The syllabus at this stage includes the entire spectrum of disciplines from the languages, English and Hindi, to Mathematics and Environmental Science. As per the National Education Policy 2020, imparting Skill Education should be an integral part of a child's learning. At G D Goenka, we have Computer Science, General Knowledge and Life Skills as important components of the School Timetable. The option to gain proficiency in a Third Language from among, Sanskrit, German and French, is provided to learners from grade V onwards. Assessments are as important as imparting education. While formative assessments throughout the year help the student, parents and teachers to obtain valuable feedback, the Standardized Summative Assessment is conducted at the end of the year to evaluate the level of achievement of the student and to check her / his preparedness to take on the challenges of the next academic session.

Middle (Grades VI to VIII)

The curriculum at the Middle Level broadens and strengthens the foundational knowledge gained at the primary stage. The focus of the curriculum is fixed firmly at the physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth of the child. While the curriculum continues to evolve in a helical manner, building upon the scholastic foundation laid at the primary level, a new subject, Social Science, gets added to the academic bouquet. The Middle Level not only draws heavily upon the scholastic achievements of the students at the primary level, it also inculcates the discipline and rigour that they would be needing to take on the pressures of the Secondary Level. The assessments at the Middle Level are further streamlined and aligned with the degree of difficulty and examination pattern of the Secondary Level as outlined by the CBSE.

The academic year is primarily divided into two terms:

Term 1 (100 Marks): Term 1 is precisely the first half of the session. It constitutes of a unit test (20 marks) and a half-yearly test (80 marks).
Term 2 (100 Marks): Term 2 is the second half of the session. It also constitutes of a unit test (20 marks) and a yearly exam (80 marks).
The Half Yearly and Yearly Examinations are pen-paper based assessments conducted at the end of each term.
The overall assessment of a child constitutes both scholastic and co-scholastic domains. The co-scholastic domain constitutes of music, art and craft, theatre, sports etc.

Secondary (Grades IX and X)

The secondary level comprises of grades 9 th and 10 th , where our young learners take the preliminary steps to make their career dreams come true. The students have their first glimpse of the scholastic evaluative systems beyond the school. Their future goals and aspirations gain greater clarity and the focus of the curriculum is on guiding, encouraging and empowering our learners within the domain of framework provided C.B.S.E. Cognizant with this, the curriculum at this stage strictly adheres to the systems developed by C.B.S.E.

Senior Secondary (Grades XI and XII)

In Grade XI, the curriculum prescribed by C.B.S.E is followed. The admissions in Grade XI are strictly based on merit. Students are offered to choose from three different streams namely Science, Commerce and Humanities. We offer 5 elective subjects, considering the admission criteria of Delhi University. Physical education, can be chosen as 6th subject, if a student desires to opt the same. Separate classes will not be held for the same. Support material can be asked from teacher concerned.

STEAM Education Curriculum

STEAM Education Curriculum is the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics, and their associated practices to create a student-centric learning environment, in which students investigate and engineer solutions to problems, and construct evidence-based explanations of real-world phenomena. By integrating STEAM Education curriculum, we aim to expand the scope of our curriculum so as to include knowledge on the latest technologies, new industries, and areas of research that will define the careers of tomorrow. This methodology stimulates students to become more aware of what they learn and the significance of how to apply their knowledge in developing new ideas, products and services across the entire spectrum of technical and non-technical fields.
