The TonsBridge basically follows the CBSE syllabus, within which flexibility of methodology and the use of experimental learning systems is encouraged. This approach helps to eliminate the need of learning by memorization and develops a healthy and positive attitude towards learning. The system of evaluation takes into account the individual nature of every child and tries to give an adequate feedback on the student’s learning, without putting undue pressure on him/her. As the child progresses through the classes, the assessment is gradually modified to prepare him/her for external tests and competitive exams.
