The course of studies is oriented towards the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (Year – 10) and the Indian School Certificate (Year – 12) Examinations.
The medium of instruction is English, the international language of today. Hindi, however, has a vital role in the curriculum and is taught in all classes upto ten. The education at De Nobili School is liberal and universal; but at the same time it is Indian and firmly rooted in Indian history and tradition. The curriculum, therefore, embraces English (Literature and Composition) the vernacular and classical languages (Hindi, Bengali, Sanskrit) History, Geography, Social Studies, Computer Science, Economics, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. The subject of Value Education is given prime importance in our school.
Education at De Nobili schools is conducted in English language and a high standard of English is required for success in the I.C.S.E. and I.S.C. Therefore, the use of English in the school campus is compulsory.
The school authorities hold that regular attendance, alertness in class, performance in regular class work and revision and co-operation of parents are sufficient to make progress.
In this connection it is to be noted that private tuition is regarded as unnecessary and harmful, to De Nobili students. Parents are advised not to waste money on tuitions, which are of questionable value.
