FAQ

Education for 21st century is not just about the content or information. It has more do with the right sources, mediums and platforms that the modern learner is going to use to access the content. As educators at AGS we accept that we have learners who are sharper and intuitive towards the process of learning. So our focus is on the process. We acknowledge that the children today will thrive on application and comprehension rather than memory and our programs specifically focus on the same and continue to evolve for the 21st century learner.

Yes, at AGS we have identified the 21st century skills. Our focus is not only academic excellence but also on life skills, independent work, personality development, effective communication, art appreciation, technology integration and many more based on the age, interest and nature of the learner.

School has implemented the Wake up 2 Dream and Dare to Dream programs. These ongoing programs aim to develop our students from a very young age, to lead their own lives with responsibility, to work well with others and to learn to do the right thing even when no one’s watching.

The international environment of the school borrows from the IBO’s Learner Profile attributes (Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators¸ Principled, Open-minded, Caring, Risk-takers, Balanced, Reflective) that help us make our students international minded, who care for the world around them. Value and character building is at the heart of everything we do. We do not treat this as a separate subject, but cultivate as a way of life that each teacher and individual in school exemplify, and display in their interactions on a day to day basis with the students.

Yes, there are interactions for the admissions for Grade 1 to Grade 9. Please note that admissions for Grade 1 to Grade 9 will be confirmed only after the interactions. These interactions, in a verbal or written form, are a tool for both the school and the parent to get a genuine assessment of the level the child has reached at present, academically, and if there are any particular areas of weaknesses that need to be focused upon.

The website provides the syllabus information for each grade. Kindly refer to the previous grade’s syllabus to prepare your child for the admission.

An assessment of each child seeking admission from Grade 1 onwards is taken before admission is granted. We make sure that we admit the child only if s/he has the potential to cope up with curricular requirements. In a very few cases, where a child shows borderline potential, either we recommend a lower grade than what was applied for or else for a special, targeted support in school and at home to ensure that the child is able to cope up.

The school has a waitlist system. We recommend that you complete the admission procedure for your child that includes-                                                                                                                  

  1. Student appearing for the interaction.                                                                                      
  2. Submitting all the required documents. We will process your application and assign you a waitlist number based on certain predefined criteria.  Once the seats become available in that grade, we shall release the seats in order of the waitlisted numbers. We will call to inform you of the availability of the seat.                                                                                                                
  3. A prompt acceptance of the seat, after its release, is advised with a full payment of Deposit and Admission fees. If we do not receive fees within three working days after our notification, we will cancel the student’s name from the waitlist and assign the seat to the next waitlisted student.
  4. Please note that the waitlist number given to you is only for academic session 2017-18. If you do not get admission this year and wish to reapply next year, you will have to undertake the admission process all over again.

We consider parents as valued partners in the child’s education. The school conducts Parents Teacher Meetings (PTM) thrice a year.

Homework helps students reaffirm, learn application, develop self-reliance and work skills. Typically, the amount of homework increases as the student advances in age and grade levels. However, homework need not necessarily mean written work. It will include reading assignments, preparing for class, collection of material for projects, conducting surveys/ interviews etc. School does not encourage outside tutoring for any of the subjects. We want our students to be self-reliant and be responsible of their learning. The involvement and support of the parents is required for the procurement of the materials; keeping track of the deadlines, and a guidance for the internet surfing sites during their child’s research work. Details of our homework policy will be made available after admission.

Shifting to schools offering other boards is subject to that school’s admission process. As far as recognition is concerned, before the Grade 10, the school only requires a certificate from the District Education Officer saying that the school is authorized to run the primary years. School already has this certificate and a few of our students over the last 4 – 5 years have successfully shifted to other schools in other states and to other countries like Australia, US etc. without any issue. Please refer to parent testimonials on our website.

We do our best to provide teachers with a healthy growth environment to ensure long-term commitment with the organization. We invest a lot of time, energy and resources in training our teachers and would not like to see them leave. Apart from this, teachers are also provided facilities like subsidized fee for their children, day care facilities, etc. But at times due to unavoidable circumstances they may leave. Our experience in the last fifteen years has been that our teachers don’t leave to join other schools – almost all the teachers who have left AGS have left for personal reasons such as marriage, pregnancy, transfer of family / husband, ill-health. Therefore, we are quite confident of retaining our teachers.
