Assessments Schedule

Regular assessment provides a necessary tool to help drive student performance. It is an integral component of the instructional process and enables our teachers to make informed decisions regarding curriculum choices, resources, instructional accommodations and forms of accountability. Athena follows a benchmarking process that provides teachers a scaffolding of assessment data to be utilized for future instructional planning.

Report Cards are also issued at the end of each exam. Consultation sessions are held soon afterwards to discuss the reports. The school has an open door philosophy and parents are expected to discuss the student's progress.

Apart from report cards, parents are alerted about various student performance through SMS. An online portal is also available using which parents can check their wards performance at any time.
