Cambridge checkpoint at Gitanjali
Five years ago Gitanjali introduced Cambridge curriculum i.e. IGCSE at grade 9-10 level and A level at grade 11-12. Now we bring the Checkpoint curriculum in lower secondary.
What is Cambridge Checkpoint?
The Cambridge Checkpoint, an advanced academic program for middle school students, is offered to 7th, and 8th graders at Gitanjali School. It offers the school a means of tracking student progress through the lower secondary phase, with an integrated package of teaching, learning and assessment materials. At the end of Lower Secondary, students sit for the Cambridge Checkpoint tests in- English, Math and Science- which provide detailed feedback on students’ strengths and challenges before they move into the IGCSE stage.
