Curriculum

Ours is an English-medium educational institute equipped to nurture and educate students from the level of pre-primary through higher secondary school. To ensure that every student receives adequate attention, each class is divided into sections. The curriculum is comprehensive and aims to empower each child with competitive skills and knowledge informed by social and ethical values.

The pre-primary level would encompass rhyme and rhythm, story-time, art and craft, free-play, which help lay the foundation for a reading-writing programme.

At the primary level (Classes I-V) a hands-on approach is practised which helps to develop a spirit of enquiry. Language and numeric skills are acquired through the teaching of specific subjects such as English, Hindi, Mathematics, General Science, General Studies (History and Geography) and Environmental Studies. Music, Physical Education and Art are all interwoven into the curriculum.

The curriculum in Middle School diversifies the vista of studying the three branches of Science (Physics, Chemistry & Biology) along with Humanities subjects (History, Geography) thereby igniting the spirit of exploring the wonders of scientific phenomenon in everyday life through their multitudinous, activities and experiments in well equipped Science Laboratories. At this level, focus on strengthening the language, numerical and scientific skills lay the foundation for development of interest in relevant course of study in higher classes.
