A General Note about CISCE Affiliated Schools in Lucknow

The most well known schools in this city are affiliated to ISC and CBSE boards, though ISC is more prevalant. In Class 11 and 12, ISC/CBSE are better than state boards, because their syllabus is aligned with that of national level entrance tests. There are some old and famous Anglo-Indian schools such as La Martiniere and St. Francis College and Loreto.  Among newer schools, which often have more modern facilities and infrastructure, City Montessori and Jaipuria School are very well known. There are also many new and upcoming private and international schools offering the ICSE-ISC curriculum. Some students aspiring to study abroad after Class 12, move into the international section after class 10.  Many ICSE schools offer the option to drop Science and study Commerce, right from Class 9. A large number of ICSE and ISC toppers hail from Lucknow every year, and many of them are admitted to top DU colleges after Class 12. As of 2016, Lucknow is also among the top 10 cities sending students to the IITs. 


ICSE-ISC and CBSE have a rather similar curriculum, though ISC and ICSE have a more rigorous curriculum for the compulsory English paper. Shakespeare is introduced early on and students are required to write detailed and descriptive answers. At the Class 10 level, ICSE has an internal assessment of at least 20% in most subjects. This assessment is based on projects and practical work. A wide variety of subjects are available as electives. For example, Commerce, Economics, Computer Applications, Art, Environmental Science, Technical Drawing. There were a total of 60 subjects (which includes a large number of Indian and foreign languages) at ICSE 2016. In Class 11, there is a focus on speaking and listening skills as well. Differences between the two boards are more noticeable till Class 10, after which the focus and style converges.

A note on these tabulations.

These tabulations are completely objective and based on academic averages alone. These do not account for the varying levels of effort that schools have to put in due to their remote locations and the challenges that they face in educating students from a spectrum of socio-economic backgrounds. And so, this report is not necessarily and indicator on what the school's input is the development of the student: with the limited data that we have (only academic) it is hard to segment what component of the annual performance can be attributed to the student's socio-economic and home background, and what component can be attributed to the quality of education imparted in the school.
