Teaching:


As most of the students come from Government schools and have had little or no exposure to English, the major thrust in the first few years is the teaching and learning of English.

English is taught as a foreign language, with emphasis on spoken skills and maximum use of audio-visual aids and a high-tech language lab set up for the purpose.

The teaching of a foreign language must necessarily follow the natural order of listening, speaking, reading and writing, and this is the method followed at Him Jyoti.

Many innovative programmes have been tried and found to be most effective in raising the level of academic achievement of every child.

Some of these are:
• Pull Out Programme in Maths, English and Hindi (POP)
• Remedial learning Programme (RLP)
• English Language Improvement Programme (ELIP)

At Him Jyoti, every child is important.

Our focus is EVERY child and our efforts are concentrated on ensuring that there is a gradual but definite improvement in the level of every child’s achievement.

Evaluation

The need of the hour is to strike a balance between preparing students for taking examinations and removing the stress that students are so prone to, under the present system of examination-based evaluation.

Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) is considered to be the most appropriate method of evaluating the progress and achievement level of a student.

To this end, we have a detailed and comprehensive method of evaluation that takes into consideration all aspects of learning. Spoken and written skills, home and class assignments, class participation and response, Class Tests and Unit Tests and two Examinations during the year are all given due weightage in the final evaluation of each student.
