We emphasize to make learning enjoyable, full of curiosity in order to prepare each little champ for bigger challenges. Our curriculum at the Pre-Primary Level is structured to carefully nurture our young ones. It has been specially designed to cater to their desire to absorb and inquire, thus enhancing their inbuilt abilities. It has been specially designed to suit their physical, mental and emotional needs. Nursery is a time for structured play-based learning. Scientific evidence shows that young children learn when playing, and the School uses best practices to support play-based learning. This includes having teachers with professional training, providing a safe environment conducive to learning, encouraging inquiry and story-telling, the use of puppets, blocks, markers, sand and other creative toys, and the explicit teaching of literacy and numeracy skills with a fun, play-based approach. The teachers provide a rich variety of materials and resources and interact with children to clarify, expand or help articulate the children's thinking. Play-based learning encourages children to share their findings, develop strategies and find solutions to problems, learn from one another and to respect different viewpoints.
CURRICULUM - PRIMARY
Skills like communication, creative thinking, critical thinking, solving real life issues, finance and budgeting and self-management can be best developed at initial stage and it is exactly when the students analyze, learn and master all excitedly and earnestly. The curriculum is comprehensive and both broad and balanced. Teachers take a creative approach when planning lessons and children are given opportunities to experiment, investigate, and express opinions.

CURRICULUM - SECONDARY SCHOOL
In the secondary school years - grades VI to grade X the students learn how to think in an abstract manner, and furnish their cognitive skills by gaining a deeper understanding of important concepts. The teaching methodology is based on experiential learning to enable learners to acquire a better grasp of diverse concepts. Higher order thinking skills and value based questions form an integral part of the learning process. Department weeks are organised on a regular basis to foster love for subjects and further enhance the students' knowledge and understanding of the subjects.
Secondary school students also have access to the school laboratories, allowing them to gain experiential knowledge. Since these years are integral for the social development of the children, students are taught to accept personal responsibility for actions, decisions and outcomes. Students' classroom and laboratory work is supplemented with educational trips, which make learning more exciting.
