What kind of Record system the school maintains?
The school keeps a permanent record of each student's academic achievement. Diplomas are granted after the student has satisfied all financial obligations to the Khalsa School. All records and services are withheld from students who have any outstanding financial obligations. All student records are confidential and are maintained by the school sewadars.
What is the use of Homework Assignments?
Homework assignments are designed to help students achieve greater academic success and develop effective work habits. Parents are requested to support the student with the homework assignment in the following manner:
  • Check for homework assignment.
  • Choose a quiet place and time to complete homework.
  • Support, clarify, and motivate, BUT DO NOT DO THE HOMEWORK FOR YOUR CHILD.
  • Be wary if your child never has homework. Talk with your child's teacher(s) if the assignments are too difficult or time consuming for your child.
How Grades are calculated?
Grades are recorded based upon the following system:

25% of the total grade is computed for attendance. Regular and punctual attendance is required at all classes. The school sewadars maintain the attendance policy and records. Teachers will take attendance at the start of each class period. All matters of attendance are between the student and the school sewadars. Poor attendance will require consultation with school sewadars and possible disciplinary action. Satisfactory attendance record is a pre-requisite for a good grade.

25% of the total grade is computed for completing homework assignments.

25% of the total grade is computed for activities related to spiritual enhancement.

The "Community-life" of every student is important to your growth and development. In addition to learning Punjabi and Gurmukhi in the class, activities related to the spiritual enhancement enabled through attendance and sewa during the Gurudwara services, special projects including symposiums, competition, etc. will be considered.
25% of the total grade is computed for test grades.
