As mentioned in the academics section attendance plays a pivotal role in RIMS. A student is expected to maintain a 90% attendance for academics and will be penalized if he/she fails to adhere to it.

We firmly believe that the class room teaching has no substitute and a student being in class makes him privy to the knowledge and challenges that the teacher has shared in the course of the class conducted. Therefore, the stricture to maintain the high standard in attendance for every student in RIMS.

Pupils who have an excellent record of attendance are usually those who achieve their full potential. According to National Curriculum Guidelines (2009) the National Average of attendance is 94%.

Attendance What it means
100% - 96% attendance No Academic concern and high Achievers
