Kindergarten

This section of the school also called the Junior school trains the budding citizens of tomorrow. The school believes in inculcating values in students at an early age, that they may grow into responsible and caring adults.

This section includes the Playhome and Lower & Upper Kindergarten, for students of age 3 to 5 years.

The Junior School is a dynamic environment in which one can see significant developments in physical, emotional and intellectual growth throughout kindergarten education. These are the 'Foundation Years' during which early linguistic and arithmetic skills which are basics in building childhood competencies are taken care of. This is the time when good habits are instilled and a sense of identity and place takes shape.

Students of Kindergarten develop fine motor skills, develop auditory visual discrimination, hand-eye co-ordination, one-to-one correspondence and logical thinking. Interesting writing activities are given to enhance their observation skills, quantitative analysis and sequencing.
 
 

Primary and Middle School

Primary & Middle School
PRIMARY SCHOOL

This section includes classes I-IV standards, catering to students in the age group of 6 to 9 years.
As students move through Junior School we begin to introduce them progressively to the world of integrated knowledge, while particularly strengthening their aptitude in the core studies of English, Mathematics, General Science and Social Science. This is a time of multi-dimensional learning.

A wide range of classroom activities is used as stimuli for reading and writing. Children also start using the English and Math Lab from Class 1, which helps them to sharpen their analytical skills.




As children are too young to take on the pressures of examination, we follow an informal system of Continuous Assessment where there is no formal examination system and the child’s performance in written class-work, assignment, internal assessment, work sheets, orals, participation in activities are observed throughout the academic year and grades are allotted in the assessment report card.

Worksheets are given every month and the evaluated worksheets are sent home so that the parents understand the child's level of learning.

Continuous and comprehensive evaluation will form the basis for a holistic assessment of a learner inclusive of co-scholastic areas like Life Skills, Attitudes and Values, participation and Achievement in activities involving literary and creative skills, scientific skills, aesthetic skills and performing arts as well as Health and Physical Education.
This informal system of continuous assessment keeps the children free from stress-related problems and enjoy coming to school.


MIDDLE SCHOOL

In Class 5, students are taught to handle larger portions of subjects than what they tackled in Class 1 to 4. They are introduced to the study of Computer Science.

Students enter the 'Middle School', a critical phase in education. They are a bunch of vivacious, confused, boisterous and intelligent group of students belonging to Grades 5, 6 & 7.

Middle School students are ready to tackle deeper and more discreet subjects with an array of specialist teachers, including the challenge of additional languages. General Science becomes more detailed as Physics, Chemistry and Biology and Social Science becomes more specialized as History-Civics and Geography. English, Hindi / Kannada, and Computer Science continue to be on the agenda.

Technology based learning begins at the Middle School. Apart from three unit tests and two exams, projects are given in all subjects to enhance creativity, team work and presentation skills. Internal assessments are done at regular intervals to evaluate the overall performance of the child.

These years are also a good time to learn the discipline and skills of preparing for tests and examinations. Students are gradually trained to appear for the Board Examinations in the senior classes.

“What makes the youth a big power?“


We should be thankful that God has given us a chance to experience the phase of life that we call Youth. It is in our youth that we have many dreams to pursue and many hopes to count on. These dreams can take us to the stars and galaxies till, we realize them or die for in the process, if need be. It is in our youth that our minds are full of idealism that becomes our guide us life. So what makes the youth a big power?

It all begins with idealism. In the mind of youth, idealism is the trigger that keeps us on the track that we choose. Idealism helps us to form our mindset. It also helps us to find something that we believe in, form our faith and conviction.


If we are truly to experience the beauty of being alive and help our world evolve into a genuinely peaceful and loving place, we must realize idealism as a powerful and necessary life condition. In India, just into the 21st century, we have to create a sound environment to enable us to cope with the emerging challenges of globalization. It is for the youth and India to work towards value addition in upgrading themselves to become capable of handling those challenges.

Empowered by idealism the youth can become an effective instrument of change and can aspire to create a world free of poverty, unemployment, inequity and exploitation, a world free of discrimination on grounds of race, language and gender, an ideal world, full of challenges and opportunities to conquer them.

I deem it a great privilege to be at the helm of affairs at Carmel High School, one of the finest institutions in the State. The name and fame, the school enjoys today is the result of the hard work put in by a team of dedicated and highly qualified teachers and talented and students.
Teachers play a pivotal role in the personal growth and well being of the students as they expose them to a complex range of skills and help them identify and develop their potential and talents.
Our goal is to build a strong foundation for the sound development of all the faculties of the children so as to enable them to be successful in life. The focus will be on exposing students to the state of the art educational technology while learning. Further, we like to foster the interest and involvement of students in the teaching-learning process by interacting with expert educators and resource persons. It is our sincere endeavor to provide practical learning experiences to our students through workshops, seminars, panel discussions, lectures and enrichment programmes. It is our dream to build a modern institution where every student is given an opportunity to develop his/her potential to the optimum level. Thus we propose to bring about a quality improvement in the curricular and co-curricular atmosphere of the school.
Commitment to quality, innovation and continuous improvement in education will be the abiding principles guiding our institution. We are grateful to everyone in and around our school who has contributed to our success.
