About the Curriculum

JML School, Khar is affiliated to the CISCE (Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations) Board, New Delhi. This is the premier National Examination Board which continually strives to incorporate the very best in the prescribed syllabi with a commitment to excellence, in keeping pace with and even anticipating changing times.

Holistic Development

The middle school curriculum is designed and executed in a systematic, scientific manner keeping in mind the prevalent trends and requirements in the field of education. The aim is to transition the students in a progressive and phased manner, towards the rigour of secondary school academic requirements, thereby enabling them to adapt to the ICSE and then ISC syllabus seamlessly.

As part of this process, students are encouraged to be involved in the teaching learning process. This includes interactive activities, projects, quizzes and digital presentations, all of which are an integral part of everyday school life for our middle schoolers. Dramatisation and extempore speeches help in the transaction educational process.

All middle school classrooms are equipped with interactive Smart Boards, that are preloaded with Digital Content on relevant subjects. This facilitates better understanding of units of learning.

We provide healthy and nutritious lunches to our students in the school Dining Hall. We also have a Canteen that offers healthy snack options.

Assessment & Evaluation

Our Middle School employs a Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) process that is undertaken throughout the year. This ensures students are continually evaluated on a variety of parameters including activities, projects, presentations and student portfolios.
