We, at WIS, strongly believe in giving individual attention to each child. A healthy teacher-student ratio ensures that every child is taken as a special entity deserving attention and focus. At the same time, the faculty encourages every child towards independent thinking, capable of taking decisions and pursuing knowledge on their own. The student strength is restricted to 20 students in Playgroup and Nursery, 25 in Kindergarten and 30-35 thereafter.

SECONDARY SCHOOL GRADES 9 AND 10
THE INTERNATIONAL GENERAL CERTIFICATE OF SECONDARY EDUCATION (IGCSE)
The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year – olds. It develops successful students, giving them excellent preparation for their next step in education, including progression to A and AS Level study, and equips them with skills for immediate employment. Cambridge IGCSE recognized by universities and employers worldwide.
IGCSE provides a board study programme by drawing subjects from five areas: Language, Humanities, Social Science, Mathematics, Creative, Technical and Vocational. Within the curriculum there is a balanced mix of practical experience and theoretical knowledge. With a choice of Core and Extended papers in most subjects, the IGCSE is suitable for students with different levels of ability. The IGCSE is an internally based curriculum allowing teaching to be placed in a localized context, making it relevant in different regions. It is also suitable for students whose first language may not be English and this is acknowledged throughout the examination progress.
The curriculum sharpens communication skill, problem solving abilities, initiative, teamwork and investigative skills. The resulting attitudes lay the foundation for higher levels of learning such as the IB Diploma program. It also qualifies the students for the main-stream state-level HSC, CBSE (XII) or ISC XII.
IGCSE syllabuses have been developed to support modern curriculum development, and to encourage good teaching practice, they set internationally recognized standards (equivalent to British GCSE). IGCSE can be taken as individual subjects or as qualifications towards the International Certificate of Education (ICE), which is awarded for seven IGCSE passes, including two from Group I subjects and one from each Group II to VII subjects.
FEATURES OF IGCSE
IGCSE is aimed at a wide ability range of students, with a range of grades awarded from A* (highest grade) to G (lowest). There is a core (C to G) and extended (A* to E) curriculum available in many subjects, as with the UK GCSE. IGCSE uses a variety of assessment techniques to test oral and practical skills, initiative and problem – solving, and application of skills, knowledge and understanding. A coursework option is available in many syllabuses, allowing Centres an element of personal choice and giving teachers the chance to share in the process of assessment. Candidates are rewarded for positive achievement (what they know, understand, and can do). IGCSE prepares for progression to employment, or to further study. It prepares students very well for Cambridge International A and AS Levels.
IGCSE is designed to be taught as a two year course for students in Grade 9 and 10. During the two years, the teachers will use different methods of assessment including course work, practical exercises, oral and listening tests, project work and written examinations.
