Teaching Staff

We employ well qualified teaching staff with a minimum qualification of a bachelor’s degree and prior experience in teaching to provide high quality education to the students. We have a total of 35 staff members currently working at Krushi Vidyalyam.. Although we would like to keep Teacher-Student ratio of 1:30, but the current ratio is 1:40. Every staff member has to go through a well designed recruitment process at Krushi. The school management committee will screen applicant’s job and behavioral skills first. The next step in the process is to make the applicant provide a demo class followed by an interactive session with other staff members. 



Teaching emphasis

Nursery School (Nursery,LKG, UKG and 1st class)
Emphasis is given to learn the language and provide fun environments to little kids. More focus is to teach them the English Alphabets, numbers, rhymes and forming sentence. Very little homework like practicing the letters/numbers, sketching figures.



Junior school (2nd Class to 5th Class)

Emphasis is given to developing basic concepts in subject areas, skills of various types, and wider perspectives that incorporate the educational values of the school. A flexible curriculum, periodically reviewed and updated by the staff, has been developed keeping in mind current trends in education and the development level of children at each age group. In the Junior School classes, a rich learning environment is provided. Painting, craft, music and drama are an integral part of the curriculum. Students are encouraged to pursue their interests beyond curricular learning. There is an ongoing program to create learning materials that enhance the concrete experiences which are the basis of concept formation and skill development in languages and mathematics. The immediate natural and human environment of Krushi Vidhyalayam provides the starting point for curricular themes of environmental studies. Field trips, discussions and project work help to enhance children’s awareness and understanding of the world. Evaluation is based on ongoing teacher observations and class work. Minimal home work is assigned at this stage. Children work mostly with their own class teacher. All children follow programs of work which accord with the policies and schemes that have been drawn up and agreed by the staff. The detailed teaching plan for each subject is the responsibility of individual teachers working in year teams. All the schemes of work have been developed with reference to the State Curriculum and the school’s defined aims and objectives.



Middle school (6th class to 8th Class)

In the Middle School — that is, from class 6 onwards — the curriculum is broadened to match the growing abilities of students in assimilating information and grasping abstract ideas. Specialized subjects and greater academic rigor are progressively introduced. In classes 6 and 7, students learn General Science, History and Geography, in addition to Languages and Mathematics. Subject matter and concepts are presented using audiovisual media, teacher-designed worksheets, visits to the laboratory and to the mathematics room, project work in the library, and field trips and excursions to surrounding areas. Students are encouraged to participate in classroom discussions, think for themselves, and develop an enquiring attitude. Written assignments, oral presentations and homework exercises are a regular part of the learning and evaluation process at this stage. In class 8 — which is a transition class into the Senior School — the specialized science disciplines of Physics, Chemistry and Biology are introduced and a beginning is made towards teaching the class 10 examination syllabus. Periodic tests, conducted at the discretion of the subject teachers, are a regular part of the evaluation process as are self-assessment exercises, self-study worksheets and group projects.



Senior School (9th Class to 10th Class)

The educational program is oriented towards preparing the students for the class 10. At the end of class 9, students take final examinations with marks instead of grading for the first time. Periodic tests, conducted at the discretion of the subject teachers, are a regular part of the evaluation process as are self-assessment exercises, self-study worksheets and group projects. The academic curriculum is balanced by dramatics, sports and work experience which includes participation in the othersocial activities of the school .
