infrastructure is key to good results
reality of educational systems proved by empiric evidence of having rooms and
learning spaces in good conditions, with modern teaching methodologies,
audio-visual materials to supplement textbooks, adequate child security,
knowledge centric library, digital classrooms, highly qualified and experienced
teachers, mentoring students helping them in making ideal career choices
proving decisive for students to achieve the expected academic results. In

School Dum Dum directly impacts the performance of the students, and therefore
IGMHS is one of the best and among top rank schools in dum dum, kolkata and
IGMHS is affiliated to
CBSE. The CBSE syllabus gives students an extra edge over others in competitive
examination in India, most of which are mapped to the CBSE syllabus. Unit wise
splitting of syllabus is followed as per guidelines of CBSE. Regular
parent-teacher interactions are held to keep parents updated about their
ward/wards progress. Academic discpline is administrated by hierarchy of the Rector/Academic
Director/Principal/Vice Principal/Headmistress, Co-ordinators and finally class

The School Building:
Modern classrooms, well equipped
laboratories, audio-visual theatres, libraries and resource centre that acts as
a repository of knowledge, form a part of the infrastructure which enable well
trained teachers to bring out the best in their students.
A comprehensive sports complex, incorporating indoor sports provide a fertile

library encourages curiosity, innovation and problem-solving. It is integral to
the cultural and social life of the school as well as students. The school
library is a central point for all kinds of reading, cultural activities,
access to information, knowledge building, deep thinking and lively
discussions. Innovative Learning Environments incorporate flexible learning
spaces and blended teaching approaches. Our library provides such a place to
all its students for better performances. Our library collection helps our
students inculcate good reading speed and practices.
IGMHS believes in Effective
teaching of science, its principles and concepts. In order to achieve this one
has to look beyond the books and conventional classroom teaching. The knowledge
that kids attain in classrooms would be ineffectual unless they actually
observe the process and understand the relationship between action and
reaction. Our primary objective behind having an excellent Science Lab with
modern equipments is to develop these five very important qualities in our
1. Skills - manipulative, inquiry, investigative, organizational, communicative
2. Concepts - such as hypothesis, theoretical model, taxonomic category
3. Cognitive abilities - critical thinking, problem solving, application,
4. Understanding the nature of science - scientific enterprise, scientists and
how they work, existence of a multiplicity of scientific methods,
interrelationships between science and technology and among the various
disciplines of science
5. Attitudes - such as, curiosity, interest, risk taking, objectivity,
precision, confidence, perseverance, satisfaction, responsibility, consensus,
collaboration, and liking science
Computers & Technology plays
a major and vital role in our day to day work and life. The impact is such that
kids learn to type before they can write. Education has benefited from the
inclusion of technology and computers by making it easier for students to keep
up while helping teachers by improving the way lessons can be planned and
taught. The computers in our lab have been upgraded with appropriate software.
As per CBSE syllabus and standards we enable students to develop, compile and
run programs in various computer languages, teach intenet, multi media
applications, MS-Office etc. Computers and the internet offer a vast range of
resources, benefits and expedite the process of information flow. Additionally,
teaching students through computers is a largely audio-visual method, which is
highly stimulative and engaging and effective.
To help students cope with the
problems of adolescence, we have a team of counselors who instill in students
positive attitude and help to create an open and friendly environment in the
Work-shops and Seminar:
With evolving teaching techniques
it becomes important for teachers to expand their knowledge base and recent
developments. The management sends teachers to various work-shops/seminars to
help them acquire proficiency.
Safety and security of the
students is of Paramount importance. The school management gives special
emphasis on this aspect and therefore cameras for CCTVs are installed in all
class rooms, laboratories, library, staff room offices, stairs, veranda, and
other strategic points to keep vigilant watch on the activities and monitor the
"Sound mind is possible in
sound body" is an old saying full of truth. Sanitation in the school
campus is given due importance. Arrangement for pure and cold drinking water
for the students and the teachers are sufficiently made.
Teachers will help to create a
stimulating atmosphere for nurturing the child's natural curiosity and a desire
to learn. Primary classes would focus on strengthening the child's abilities
and special needs. We strongly believe that this close interaction between
teacher and student facilitates a fulfilling learning experience.
Children need to travel safely
between home and school with the least effort and time. To ensure this, we will
manage a fleet of buses, designed to conform to stringent safety standards.
Manning them will be trained personnel, sensitized to the needs of small
children. On board communication system will allow, in case of emergency, to
keep in touch.
