“ Glendale has a wonderful and continous comprehensive assessment program. Glendale provides an excellent learning atmosphere without a 'burden'. Added to it is the numerous competitions - debates, singing, sports and cultural show all contribute to the all-round development of the child and instills lots of self-confidence. Truly a great institution with a very open atmosphere !”

At Glendale, assessment of every student’s progress is a continuous, everyday affair. We gauge whether a student merely recalls facts or if he/she has truly internalized and assimilated the concept and can comprehend, apply, analyze, synthesize and evaluate what has been taught. Consequently ‘learning by rote’ is a taboo, and the ‘cram for exam’ culture is out!
