Academic Programs

At St. Mark’s School, we focus on the overall development of our students and our academic program is developed to suit a wide range of learners. The school follows the CBSE curriculum and has developed an academic program on the lines of International Schools that is focused on providing “Quality Holistic Education” to its students.

Our “Quality Holistic Education” approach is focused on creating a sound foundation for our students at the formative years so that they are capable of coping with the demands and stresses of the later levels as the progress.

Given the over four decades of teaching experience of our staff and the experience of St. Mark’s as an institution over the past 12 years, we have evolved our own unique academic program, “Quality Holistic Education”, which caters to the unique requirements and challenges that students face in the present day environment.

Our “Quality Holistic Education” academic program incorporates the over four decades of teaching experience of our staff and the experience of St. Mark’s as an institution over the past 12 years and the over four decades of teaching experience of our staff and the experience of St. Mark’s as an institution over the past 12 years and is structured around 3 fundamental focus points.

  • Equipping our students with strong fundamentals via the traditional class room.
  • Relating what has been learnt to a real-world environment so that our students experience the reality of what is being taught. This is achieved through our “We Care” program.
  • Equipping our students with sound etiquette/manners and moral values and in doing so, create a well rounded individual better equipped to face the challenges of life. This is achieved through our “Gold Stars” program.

As children move through our program, differences in learning styles, abilities, motivations and achievements become apparent and our trained teachers make a conscious effort to address the specific needs of all our children. The school offers a nurturing and caring environment that allows its students develop their academic and other skills giving your child a total education. The school uses the latest international techniques combined with traditional values creating an exciting & enjoyable educational environment for its students and at the same time, ensuring their bright futures and meeting the diverse needs of the entire student body.

As part of our holistic approach to education for your child and to better prepare them to confidently face the real world, the school has introduced two complementary programs to build on the class room teaching.

  • An Environment Based Learning Program called “We Care” that extends your child’s education beyond the traditional class room, allowing the students to relate to real world experiences in a creative and fun way, with what is being taught and in that process better prepare them to confidently face the real world.
