As in Pakistan, a term consists of a whole year. .The schools conduct at least three assessments in a year. The midterm assessments are also conducted by many famous schools.

The school database having the data of all the students and employees of the school is an essential feature of a good and well-managed school. The Schools keeps the records of portfolios of the students, their assessments records, their contact details, and fee and charges details. Everything is managed through a database software and reports are generated as and when required.

Many students can not get an education due to their poor economic condition. The children of such families have a strong urge to get an education but they can not do so due to their poverty. The school should be cooperative with such students. So that they may be able to get an education and lead life as good citizens.

Arrange a library for the students is also the duty of the school administration. So that the students may not have any hurdle in their study. In this way, they will be able to have easy access to all types of books. This will also develop the habit of book reading among the students.

Science and computer labs play an important role in conceptual teaching. The practicals are far better than reading books. Science lab and a computer lab are the basics of modern teachings. Now the modern teaching methods have yielded the place of traditional teaching methods.


To sum up, the whole discussion is that the schools are not just responsible to make the students able to get a good job rather every school should try to make the students good citizens. They should also prepare in such a way that they may be successful in this world or in the next world. Then we can call that school an ideal and good school.
