Yes, the school encourages participation in external exams like Logiqids, Olympiad & Spell Bee, Asset, etc. A number of our students have competed at the State, National & International levels.
The campus is equipped with a digitally monitored Visitor Management System (VMS) which ensures safe entry and exit of all visitors. We also have RFID (Radio-frequency Identification) cards for all students and staff. The campus is extensively covered with CCTV cameras with 24-hour surveillance. Additionally, we ensure that there are female attendants outside all washrooms.
The building has a modern firefighting system installed with smoke detectors and sprinklers. Mock evacuation drills and disaster management sessions are regularly conducted for both students and staff.
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is here to stay, and there is no doubt that the ability to utilize ICT effectively is an immense advantage to students, job-seekers, and businesses today. This phenomenon will probably become more profound in future years. Therefore, we will teach children how to safely and effectively use ICT. The most important point is that we must proactively teach children to use the internet properly rather than reactively punishing them when they use the internet inappropriately. There will be regularly scheduled lessons, at least once a week from Grade 3, about internet safety and security, appropriate use, and netiquette. The curriculum for these classes is available online from common sense media. Children will be closely supervised and every teacher is trained in how to use ICT appropriately. Internet safety and security is not the responsibility of the computer teachers; it is the responsibility of each and every teacher. Students will not be left unsupervised to surf the web but they will be closely supervised by teachers who have been trained in issues of cyber-safety. The teachers will also positively model appropriate use and be able to answer students' questions about computers. Students are not allowed to use their phones during lessons. This rule, and others like it, are discussed by the teacher and the class at the beginning of each semester.
The school runs a bus service that covers many areas of Dombivili.
We have two terms in an academic year. Each term consists of internal assessments, which could either be project based or written and a term end written exam.
Yes, the school has an in-house counsellor who interacts with the students on a weekly regular basis.
We have a Sports and Arts Programme (SAP) that offers various activities ranging from Speech & Drama, Kathak Dance, Chess, Football, Karate, Skating, Automation, to name a few. Every child has to select any two  activities of their choice and these activities are conducted within school hours. Children are encouraged to participate in various sporting activities at the district and state level.
Every family has different educational needs, and an international school is a good choice for students and families from international backgrounds, or those who appreciate the importance of an international education in a globalized world. Traditionally, international school families are those families who travel frequently or who have one or more family members (such as a cousin, aunt, or uncle) who live abroad, but nowadays many families prefer an international school education because the teachers use international standards and best practices from around the world. An international school is a microcosm of the global community, with students and faculty members from different parts of the world. International schools emphasize language learning, intercultural awareness, and holistic education. They teach values of tolerance, understanding, and open-mindedness. They have rigorous academic programs that prepare students for success at university in India or abroad, including USA,UK, Canada, Australia, Singapore, or Hong Kong.
Indian culture and history will be taught but those concepts are difficult to define, and Indian culture and history will not be taught as a stand-alone syllabus with a test at the end. Instead, students will learn Indian culture and history through an enquiry model, asking and answering questions such as: "What does it mean to be Indian?", "How do I narrate my family history?" or "What are the challenges facing the nation of India today, and how can we use history to make them better understand?" Students will also be made aware of Indian history and culture in their other subjects.
The fee structure is available to all the parents who visit to our school. We are proud of our school and we want parents to visit and get a feel for the place before they make decisions based on finances. The fee structure is consistent with many other international schools in India.
We meet with every family who applies to ensure that C P Goenka is a good fit for the child, the family, and the school.
