FUNTAJ HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION
ASSESMENT AND EXAMINATIONS
At Funtaj High, we regard assessment as an integral part of learning. Students are critically assessed by course work, homework, tests and examinations.
Student achievement is reported to parents regularly; at least termly and there are many opportunites for parents to discuss progress with their children's teachers on Open Days. Each student's annual report will contain grades for each subject showing both achievement and effort. All students will also sit for annual examinations. Presently, the National Examination COuncil (NECO) and the West African Examination Council (WAEC) are the examination bodies used to accredit national external qualifications.
The school participates in other foreign examinations of Cambridge (IGCSE), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Tests) I & II.
CARRERS GUIDIANCE AND COUNSELLING
A well-resourced Guidance and Counselling Unit supports students in terms of vocational, academic and socio-personal guidance. There are two cousellors, one male and a female, available to see all students boys and girls, who may wish to see them on their own or as referred by teaching staff.
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION AND COLLECTIVE WORSHIP
Our Religious Education Lessons (Islamic Religious and Christian Religious Studies) are given in accordance with the approved syllabus of our external examining bodies. We are not affiliated to any particular religious denomination and non-denomination lessons are given to all students. However, our students are properly guided in regular Muslim and Christian worship sessions, our daily acts of collective worshop focus on moral issues and how to live life as responsible citizens.
DISCIPLINE AND BEHAVIOUR
At Funtaj High, we care for our students and we are concerned if they do not match our expectations of conduct, effort and achievement. We have high expectations of our student's behaviour and attitude. Emphasis is placed on the need for courtesy and tolerance and high standards of general conduct and the formation of good character. Our code of practice is based on this belief.
Discipline is firm and friendly, on the basis that students will respond to the positive approach of encouragement, praise and rewards. When punishment becomes necessary as sanction for unacceptable behaviour, it ranges from reprimand through parental contact to expulsion. Details are given in the school's displine policy contained in the Rules and Regulations Hand Book issued to all students.
We expect that all students will exercise care and responsibility in looking after their properties and those of the school. We strongly advice that valuable possessions should not be brought to school.
We have engaged the services of a security company providing a good number of trained guards 24 hours. There are also own guards, the Funtaj Security and armed policement present on the premises at night.
We recognize that all students are entitled to equal regard and opportunity in learning. Students therefore have the right of access to all opportunities regardless of ability, age, gender, race or ethnic learning, religious persuasion or social background.
