Podar International School is affiliated to Cambridge International Examinations, UK (CIE) and International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO). At the IB–PYP (primary school from nursery to kindergarten) level, the emphasis is on developing the child’s cognitive and motor skills. In classes’ I-V, students are exposed to a vibrant world of learning as they think independently and explore new concepts and accept greater challenges. It enables students to explore transdisciplinary themes through the lines of inquiry. At the middle school level (class VI-X), the transition from childhood to adolescence is facilitated by a comprehensive, value- added education. The academic challenges become the focus as the students start preparing for the Achievement tests, Checkpoint and IGCSE exams. At the IB diploma level (class XI and XII), students become more focused through their career choices and the emphasis is on equipping students for higher education. In these final years of schooling, students are given an opportunity to exhibit their leadership qualities and emerge as responsible citizens of the world. Extracurricular: At Podar, the goal is for the students to excel both in and outside the classroom. Therefore, extensive emphasis is given to sports and extra-curricular activities. Specialized and experienced coaches are deployed in a wide spectrum of sporting disciplines. The schools teams participate and excel in various inter school sports tournaments.
