The school’s curriculum is structured in such a way that the Foundation and Primary Section (classes Pre Nursery-V), evolves into the Middle section (classes VI-VIII), which in turn matures into the Secondary and Senior Secondary Sections (classes IX-XII).

Music, painting, computer-science, physical education and dramatics are the part of Co-Curricular and outdoor activities that stimulate the mind and body.

Home work and written exercises are discouraged; chalk and talk have been replaced by audio-visual aids, language labs, open air theatre and story telling sessions. This process enables young minds to express themselves in English with ease at a very young age.
