School Level

John Dewey School follows Nepal's standard curriculum as the pointer with an eye on global standards. Students until grade IV don't do any exams or study any set of particular textbooks. In other words, we have a contemporary curriculum that draws in multiple resources and regular assessment approaches. There is a high focus on reading both as a habit and a skill with arts and music not considered any less important than Science or Mathematics. Our curriculum doesn't and can't intend to make students specialists. However, our curriculum guarantees every student will have meaningful time at school as we embrace diversity.

From one perspective, the curriculum is relatively light and slow-paced. This is because we value the process of learning equally or even more important than the contents alone. Students don't learn a topic or content in order to be able to reproduce it in exam.

Eligibility for Enrollment

In general, we are non-selective in admissions because we don’t believe academic performance indicates everything about an individual. Hence, we don’t require you (parents) and your kid to face a formal exam and interview, and enroll students on a first come first serve basis.However, we do check whether the school is going to be conducive for the child and the family. The first step in admissions is that the parents must attend an information session/ discussion organized by school for which the parent needs to sign up. Secondly, our enrolment form needs to be filled in for further consideration. The management will call for an observation of the child based on which an admission formality is suggested.

The full payment of admissions fees until a seat is available only secures the admission. Forms can be obtained from school upon payment of Rs. 350 or can be directly downloaded or filled on-line by clicking the appropriate link given below. We also entertain admissions enquiries and admissions throughout the year.
