SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL
SENIOR SECONDARY CURRICULUM- CBSE BOARD
For the purpose of fostering competencies in learners, the curriculum encompasses nine major learning areas, which are: Languages, Humanities, Mathematics, Science and Technology, General Studies, Health and Physical Education. These areas are broadly divided into Scholastic and Co-scholastic areas.
The curriculum envisages individualised personal learning acumen and seeks to explore the potential of students in acquiring substantial knowledge and skills through academic rigours. With greater academic orientation and research skills in core academic areas, students would evolve as discerning young adults with a sense of real self-esteem having true values and principles.
The subjects we offer at Apple Global school are as follows:
- Languages- English
- Humanities- History, Psychology
- Science and Technology- Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science
- Commerce – Business Studies, Accountancy, Economics
- Health and Physical Education
The School Curriculum Committee defines activities for pedagogical practices, evolve a plan of assessment and mechanism of feedback and reflection and ensure its implementation. The committee also ensures that the textbooks/ reference materials are age-appropriate, gender-sensitive, incorporate inclusive principles, have valid content, and do not contain any material which may hurt the sentiments of any community.
We are confident to accomplish this with inspired teaching of a rigorous and meaningful curriculum in a dynamic learning environment where we support and challenge every student in partnership with families and community.
