SJN is affiliated to CBSE, New Delhi and follows the CCE (Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation) model as proposed by the board. Students are therefore, assessed through the year, on a variety of skills that combine scholastic and co-scholastic activities. Learning is facilitated using a combination of tools—from multi-media to activities that encourage research and understanding.
The examination model follows a series of 6 tests that are spaced over 2 semesters. These include 4 Formative Assessment tests (FA) and 2 Summative Assessment exams (SA).
In a departure from the standard evaluation system of allotting marks, the CCE approach allows students to be graded for their performance. This eliminates needless competition and also encourages students to understand where their core strengths are.
At SJN, students are given projects (both individual and team) and are expected to make presentations, participate in seminars and write out project reports on all subjects.
The CCE trained teaching community at SJN comprises a team of highly qualified and dedicated professionals with several years of experience in working at some of the best schools in the country. At SJN, the role of a teacher assumes a much larger role — teachers become facilitators in all the activities that students take part in. The teacher student ratio allows every member of the faculty to mentor individuals, work with them on their strengths and address their weaknesses for suitable remedial measures.
A team of efficient and dedicated non-teaching staff ably supports teachers. Together, they are available for students on a 24 x 7 basis.
Regular training programmes, seminars and workshops are conducted in the school premises and teachers are also encouraged to participate in the regional and the national training events.
