Examinations are held in May and November for the IGCSE and March for the A level students. This allows our students to sit for various competitive exams within India and have their results well in time for the admission process for colleges in the country.
Our faculty – Principal, Heads of Departments and teachers are drawn from the best institutions across the country. Regular teacher training and workshops are conducted. All staff comes with suitable teaching qualifications and an experience in international schools of repute. Many of them have held senior positions in their previous assignments. Professional development is continuous and relevant to each staff member’s needs.
The nine year old Montessori Teacher Training Centre, at The Ardee School – New Delhi, and Gurugram; plus the new elementary Montessori Teacher Training programme imparts exhaustive training in the Montessori Methodology, thus ensuring professionally qualified faculty for the pre primary students.
A written test in English is compulsory. Year 9 will also have to give a written exam in Mathematics. This will be followed by an interview with the student and family. Subject choices will be offered on the basis of aptitude and past achievement in the subjects being chosen. This will be further strengthened through a psychometry test undertaken by the student and analysed by the College Counsellor.

It is the methodology and delivery of concept that makes all the difference between the CIE and many other boards. The CIE curriculum is more practical and application based emphasizing ‘knowledge with understanding’ and ‘skills with application’. It helps in the all- round development of the children cultivating transferable skills for lifelong learning.
As opposed to assessing memorized knowledge and speed of recall, CIE assesses students’ knowledge, understanding, reasoning, problem solving abilities and the higher cognitive skills of analysis and synthesis. In CIE there is greater scope of independent and collaborative learning through projects, activities, presentations and interactive team-based and enquiry-based learning. Teaching and learning techniques are structured to arouse students’ curiosity and promote personal development.
Examinations are set and marked by the CIE authorities in Cambridge, U.K., thus ensuring that the students are benchmarked as per international, worldwide benchmarked quality standards. CIE accreditation is a guaranteed passport for students who wish to pursue a college education in India or abroad.
All Indian board/Universities accept the IGCSE and the A Level to the 10th and 12th Standard of the CBSE. All universities in India accept the CIE certification at A levels as equivalent to the Year 12 of the CBSE programme.
Cambridge IGCSE is taken in over 100 countries worldwide and widely recognised by higher education institutions and employers around the world as evidence of academic ability. Cambridge IGCSE is equivalent to the GCSE in the United Kingdom. In some parts of the world, schools use Cambridge IGCSE as an international alternative to the local government's examination.
Each learner's performance is benchmarked using eight internationally recognised grades (A*-G). In some countries, the IGCSE qualifications satisfy the entry requirements for university. In others, they are widely used as a preparation for A Level, AS, International Baccalaureate and US Advanced Placement courses.
You are most welcome to visit the Ardee school and have an informal discussion with or without your child. This can be done by fixing a prior appointment with our Admissions office In charge through mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 180010ARDEE (18001027333). A meeting can also be arranged with the School Principal or any other faculty member that you may wish to see.
The school curriculum and philosophy is based on the theory of MI. We understand that every child is unique and special with his/her learning styles, interests, strengths and that the school has to cater to and nurture this to ensure the actualization of each child's potential.
We treat each child as an individual and respect him/her for his/her individuality. The teaching strategies ensure that different learning styles are addressed for optimum achievement and through academically validated differentiation practices; each child is fully engaged with the work. There is an IEP (Individual Education Plan) for each child who has any Special Educational Needs.
The primary purpose of assessment is to support and enhance student learning. We recognize and appreciate that students have different learning styles and both the formative and summative assessments are based on this premise. This makes the evaluation fair, while it demonstrates a wide range of best practices. All assessments are based on a mutual understanding between the student and teacher on what will be assessed and how. The formative assessments (AFL- Assessment For Learning) are ongoing and provide students with a clear feedback to help them set their targets for the future. The summative assessments (AOL- Assessment of Learning) are calendared and follow pre decided units as per the needs of a particular subject. All assessments are more skill based and involve critical thinking and discourage rote learning. Students are also involved in cross curricular symposiums and projects which form part of the final assessment grade. This serves to make them independent learners.
The School Attendance Policy clearly states that all students are required to have a minimum attendance of 90%. Absence from school without a very valid reason is discouraged as we believe that it impacts student learning adversely. Parents are informed at the end of every month if their son/daughter has not got the mandatory 90% attendance. Students who do not have the 90% attendance are not allowed to stand for the Student Council elections unless the reason for absence is very valid and merits a concession.
If your child is absent for more than two days, please inform the school by phone or online about the reason of absence. You must also remain in contact with the class teacher, online, for follow up of the work your child has missed. A doctor's certificate/medical fitness certificate must be sent when the child rejoins the school after an extended illness.
