A summary of the Curriculum

The school year calendar is based on the Nepali calendar whereby academic year commences in April and ends in mid February. Primary education in Nepal is defined as grade 1-5. Secondary education then comprises three cycles: three years lower secondary (Grades 6-8), two years upper secondary (Grades 9-10), and two years of higher secondary education (Grades 11-12).  On completion of upper secondary school, students sit for the school leaving certificate (SLC). The Experimental Pre-primary School is divided into eight learning families namely, nursery, lower kinder garden (LKG), upper kinder garden (UKG), and grade 1 to 5.  Each family has a faculty team responsible to teach five core disciplines: reading, writing, math, science and social studies. In addition all students have Sherpa, Nepali, English, hygiene, Social and Physical Education classes (we have no Computer education because there are no electricity at). Teachers are trained (still providing trainings) with creative art and play method to interact and teach the students. The Responsible Class Room Approach is practiced which is a collection of teaching practices designed to enhance the quality of both academic and social skill development. This includes a balance of teacher directed instruction and child initiated learning and it fosters caring behavior and problem solving ability both socially and academically. The school has a weekly study review test, a monthly test and quarterly exam. This assessment helps teachers to identify the gaps and address it in a timely manner. Parents and students are also called to participate monthly to get their view on the assessment and a result oriented solution.

There is a yearly exam held which determines the students’ capacity to progress to a higher grade. The yearly exam results also incorporate the results of the by quarterly exam so that the entire year’s progress and observation is included. After completing the Primary Level education students are given pretest coaching classes so that they are successfully accepted in the other Higher Secondary Schools.  The education system in Nepal requires students to undergo an admission test so as to assess their capacity to be enrolled to a new school.
