SCHEME OF STUDIES
CMI Public School aims at moulding its students into Global Citizens who are fully equipped to challenge the fastest growing Global equations.
All the activities of the school focus on Research oriented training, in order to help them attain various life skills such as reasoning skills , critical thinking skills, interpersonal skills, communicative skills etc .
The curriculum has been designed to in corporate activities like Exhibitions, projects, Seminars ,field trips and assignments.
Seminar: This is an integral part of our curriculum. All the students from grade six and above present seminars individually. Each Annual day, a compiled book aptly named “Facets of the world around us”, is released which includes the synopsis of the best presentations.
Group Projects: Cooperative learning is yet another integral part which imparts learning by working as a team. They are involved in both group and individual projects with an international dimension that helps them gain knowledge in depth of the topic they are learning.
Field Trips: This provides a perspective on the real world and firsthand knowledge of what they study. Be it a Paddy field or a Factory; a post office or a railway station; a Zoo or a Museum. The school conducts four field trips a year for each grade (3 – subject based & 1- Social service)
Assignments: Students are trained to be self reliant in the matter of studies and other activities .This leads to independent learners. Assignments that make the students reason out and learn independently are made a part of their curriculum.
Though the school follows the CBSE curriculum the matter is being imparted through the international methodology, which makes the students multifaceted, well – grounded global citizens .
The School has been recognized by the British Council through the ISA (International School Award ) which gives ample opportunities to the students to get involved in International projects. Projects are curriculum based and done in colloboration with the partner school in London.
