Since 1999, after 16 years of graduations at our school, each graduating class takes the « End of Class 10 » state-administered exam. Results appear in the following table. It is in part due to such results that our school is known as the best in Zanskar.
Significant year-to-year variations in the percentage of graduating students are difficult to explain. They are most likely due to a combination of factors : the difficulty of the test in a particular year, its appropriateness relative to the curriculum, the pedagogy of specific teachers, or the level of a particular class.
Most students continue their education outside of Zanskar with a strong desire to return home. Many continue to be financially supported by their AaZ sponsors, independently of AaZ. These students instill hope for Zanskar by contributing to its development, whether they're able to return or not.
