The pupil will be introduced to method of learning that will take place primarily through experience rather than rote learning. Wherever possible children will have opportunities to actually experience and apply information and knowledge. We believe that for children to learn effectively the context of the curriculum as well as its delivery is of paramount importance.
Our curriculum calls attention to hands on learning experience, which will result in the natural integrated development of knowledge skills and thinking. The primary focus is on the process that pupil will undergo in experiencing an activity. Special emphasis is laid on creating an environment for self-learning. Moral values are imbibed in the children as the school stands to cultivate values following its Indian roots with Global outlook.
