Courses of Study
The Courses of study have been devised with the aim that students can take their Secondary and Senior School Certificate Examination of the Central Board of Secondary Education according to the 10+2 system of education.
“Admission to Class – XI”
The School offers courses for study in Engineering, Medical, Management streams in Class XI and XII. For admission to Class XI, details will be available from 1st April onwards every year and will be provided on enquiry. No admission will be given to those securing less than 7 CGPA or 70% (which ever case may be) at the 10th Class Examination. When applying for admission to Class – XI the combination of subjects desired are to be mentioned as per priority. The admission will be finalized on the basis of performance in the Written Test & Interview.

Hindi/Sanskrit (as per student’s option) is taught upto class X. For students of classes IX and X the pattern of teaching is strictly in accordance with that of the Central Board of Secondary Education.
In class IX the students can choose either Hindi OR Sanskrit along with English, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, besides Work Experience, Art Education and Physical Health Education.
Whereas academically proficient students receive encouragement to achieve the highest, the school recognizes the importance of paying special attention to students who are academically not very bright. Extra study periods are provided for such students whenever considered necessary.
The school is using face-to-face discussions with the student which is the most effective, however; some issues can be resolved by counseling or by parents interference. The housemasters also make parents aware of their concerns for the academic success and provide them with options and resources for academic assistance, including:
- Study Groups and Academic Workshops
In addition, students may be referred to other campus resources such Supportive Services, Mentor System etc.
Staff may continue to monitor a specific student’s progress to assist him in meeting his academic goals, not only for the current term, but until completion of their program.
Careers and Courses
The Senior Section Library has a separate ‘Vocational Guidance Section’ which provides latest information about the various competitive examinations and admission to institutions of higher learning.

Separate reference files are maintained in the library to find out all these details in the shortest possible time and help students to choose a career.

The School has a system of Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation. There are formative & summative Tests upto class 10. Unit Tests and Terminal Tests for class 11th & 12th and promotion to the next class depends on the cumulative academic achievement of the students in the whole session.
At SMPS we report to parents four times a year on their children’s progress. The purpose of this assessment, recording and reporting system is to provide regular information throughout the year to both students and parents on how students are progressing in relation to their academic ability and potential.
Each Performance/Progress report contains the following information:
- Target Grades for each individual subject
- Current level of attainment in each individual subject
- Attitude to learning, acknowledged by a number of indicators including
- Attendance and punctuality
- Performance in Physical Activities
- Completion of assignments
- Number of reward marks/Grades gained
- Housemaster’s Report
The school conducts continuous assessment over the term according to specified assessment criteria that corresponds to the objectives of each subject.
Regular school assessment and reporting play a major role in the students’ and parents’ understanding of the objectives and assessment criteria in the students’ preparation for final assessment and in the development of the curriculum according to board guidelines.
Teachers are responsible for structuring varied and valid assessment tasks (Formative & Summative.) that allow students to demonstrate achievement according to the objectives for each subject group. These include:
- Problem-solving activities
- Organized debates
- Analysis and reflection.
