SCHEME OF STUDIES
Pursuit of excellence in academics is the primary  objective  of  NISV.  Students undergo a highly enriched curriculum that  gives  them  a  sound  and  broad foundation of basics as well as opportunities to be challenged and to delve deeply into areas of their interest. The stress of examinations is done away with in the formative years of the child's learning.   Continuous and comprehensive evaluation is done by way of internal assessments. However, formal evaluation methods are adopted along with internal methods in higher primary classes. The necessary training for assessment through public examinations is provided at the secondary level.
Classes I, II, III & IV
Learning Approach
  Learning approach & curriculum design is  a  necessary raw material and vital element  for  the  growing  child.  Our teaching methods are an eclectic mix of recent innovations and existing learning styles. The methodologies are designed to  emphasize on confidence building, hands  on  experience,  group  learning and   communicative   competence.   It grooms  the  physical  and  the  mental skills   innovatively.   It   also   provides opportunities to explore and discover their immediate surroundings through

  • Logical,   analytical   and   critical thinking
  • Ability to apply problem solving
  • Positive thinking
  • Self  confidence to express themselves verbally and in writing
Different   students   work   in   different ways, but almost all children respond well to praise. We use different techniques   which   cater   to   multiple learning styles to help children to retain in formation and strengthen understanding. Some of them followed in NISV are –

  • Activity Oriented Teaching
  • Experiential learning
  • Use of technology e.g. interactive boards, Smart class, online assignments  using Math Buddy software (Grade 3 onwards).
  • Gaming and Simulation
  • Co-operative learning
  • Learning through social interaction
  • Coached problem solving
Worksheets
  The reinforcement of the concepts is done through worksheets which are designed after a lot of deliberation and creatively presented to enhance and arouse the interest of the children. All the aspects related to worksheets are sent home for your reference. We expect the parents to file them subject wise and keep them for ready reference.

The Primary school curriculum emphasizes on School Readiness Programmes and promotes healthy habits among children. Basic skills in Reading, Writing, Arithmetic and Discovery with emphasis on oral skills are nurtured. Areas of study in these classes are Languages (English and Hindi), Mathematics, Fast Computing Skills(Abacus), Environmental Studies and Computer Literacy. The content is drawn from the immediate environment and strategies are adopted to enhance skills of observation, collection, classification, experimentation, estimation, prediction and drawing inferences. Evaluation at this stage takes place in a stress-free and learner friendly environment on a continuous basis, ensuring comprehensiveness and transparency.

Activities and Competitions
  To encourage the spirit of fun and help children to develop their innate talent and making teaching learning process fun various activities have been planned for the children. We shall conduct workshops for children to make learning process interesting

Classes V, VI, VII & VIII
  The Middle School classes emphasize on skills of learning. The approach involves an integration of Science and Technology, Mathematics and Social Sciences. Learning of languages accentuates the art of listening, speaking, reading and writing, leading to communication skills with grammatical accuracy and appropriateness of style. Computer expertise is acquired to deal with the Technology Aided Learning environment of today. Music, Art, Health and Physical Education are treated as co - scholastic areas to develop aesthetic sensibilities. Life skills classes are also conducted on a regular basis. Evaluation is in the form of continuous internal testing and term examinations. The students' achievements are graded accordingly. The pedagogy of curriculum transaction at this level is such that the students are prepared for any of the National (CBSE/ICSE/GSEB) or International Boards (IGCSE, Cambridge/ IBO, Geneva) for further education.
 
Classes IX & X
  The syllabus is planned in a manner that helps the students acquire skills to apply theoretical knowledge in their day-to- day life and prepares them to be life long learners. Projects and activities are an integral part of this curriculum. Learning areas include: Languages - English, Hindi / Gujarati / Sanskrit / Foreign Languages, Mathematics, General Science, Social Sciences, Life Skills, Work Experience/Computer Education, Art Education, Physical & Health Education. Teaching is through projects, presentations, group discussions, workshops and seminars. Testing and examinations are regular and rigorous and are in accordance with CBSE / ICSE / IGCSE (Cambridge) pattern. To enhance the co-scholastic skills, CBSE emphasizes on Literary and Scientific Club, Aesthetic Club for the all round development of the student.

  Homework and Project work
  Navrachana Junior section(Grades 1-3) are not given regular homework. For the rest, individual teachers establish their own homework  expectations. As a general  practice,  we  encourage all students to read for 15 to 20 minutes each evening and all parents to read to their children once a day. Students must study  systematically  through  regular class work and homework. Homework must be done and submitted on the specified day and should reflect a child's own efforts and ideas.
