Shifaly International sr. sec. School, Rahon Road, Ludhiana is affiliated to CBSE, New Delhi (Affilation Number-1630495). The curriculum followed in junior and senior classes are based on NCERT guidelines, albeit with several innovations which have been introduced after much research and study.
Till class V the curriculum is thematic-based. The idea behind this is to seamlessly integrate various subjects with a common thread which pertains to practical aspect of life. This gives our students a holistic view and allows them to apply knowledge and correlate various subjects to real-life situations.
From Class VI onwards, formal subjects are introduced like physics, chemistry, biology, political science, etc. Books followed are from NCERT but the methodology of delivery is totally unique which has been developed in consultation with leading experts. Lessons are planned so, that students get to learn their subjects in a practical manner with lots of projects and activities.
From Class IX onwards along with intensive studies career orientation is introduced so that students can decide their future study options.
Cutting across all classes we have integrated certain programmes that fulfill some very basic needs of education which are ignored these days. These include the Read-Write-Think (RWT) programme, and L & TS (Learning and Thinking skills). We realise the importance of reading and writing in this digital age and students are encouraged to read more books and write a lot. Similarly L & TS is aimed at providing students a practical hands-on approach to the real world which awaits them once they step-out of the safe cocoon of the school life. Through L & TS we strive to instil in our students leadership qualities, the evils of physical and drug abuse, and practical health issues that include sex education.
These efforts have borne result which is manifest in the consistently excellent results that have been produced by our students at the Board exams.
