Evaluation System
In conventional school, the general practice to evaluate a student progress is to conduct tests and exams on a regular basis, which sets the basic norms of measuring a student’s progress. But EPS has a very different criteria of evaluating a student’s progress. The school evaluates the progress of the students not only on their academic merits ( which is our primary concern) but takes others aspects like co-curricular and extra- curricular activities into consideration as well. It treats the latter aspects with importance and considers them as an indispensable assets in evaluating the students.

The school lays a lot of emphasis on improving the skills of the students. Apart from the building speaking, reading and writing skill, students are encouraged to take part and build their competency in various field which contribute in fostering a holistic growth in their personality. The school does not believe in limiting the student knowledge within the perimeter of the books only but facilitates opportunities where knowledge is further expanded and consolidated through practical work and other activities. The final result which is declared at the end of the final term, takes into consideration all the curricular, co-curricular and extra –curricular activities of the students during the whole academic year and an evaluation of the overall progress of the student is done.
