Project based learning is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an
extended period of time to investigate and respond to an engaging and complex challenge.
Each term the students are given a list of projects to pick from. These projects are research based,
thought provoking, real world rigorous projects and are expected to produce products of worth which mesh
intense knowledge crosscutting across various subjects.
The project score reflects on the total grade of each individual subject the student offers.
STUDENT SUPPORT PROGRAMMES
"No Child is left behind"
Every student of RGA must have a minimum score of 50% to be considered for promotion the next level.
(Promotion into certificate classes requires a higher average). We strongly believe that no child should be
left behind so we run a number of programmes to ensure that.
Underperforming students are assigned to form teachers who supervise and track their
academic performance. They ensure that these students are on top of all their homework and get help from
teachers whose subjects they need extra attention in.
Students whose averages fall below 65% in Maths and English at junior level and Math, English,
Physics and Chemistry at the senior level are assigned to tutors in the respective subjects who coach them
after school and tackle difficulties from the foundation.
Groups of high performing senior students are assigned to junior classes to supervise their
study times. The student tutors help the younger students with their homework and prepare them for tests.
We believe in the power of peer tutoring. All classes are split into study groups with
students of varying academic strengths. Group assignments and projects are assigned to each group to tackle.
After school, help centres run four days a week. These are purely question/answer sessions.
Remedial Summer School
Everyone deserves a second chance! Students who do not meet our pass mark for
promotion may apply for a remedial summer school and retake the examination at the end of the holiday. The
new score supersedes the old one.
