JUNIOR SCHOOL (NURSERY TO STANDARD V):
The focus in the primary classes will be on learning through experience. Applicable to both, academic as well as co-curricular activities.

Development of the child’s scientific temper, evolution of a questioning and inquisitive mind, self expression and communication, self confidence along with spatial and motor skills will all be honed and transacted through the curriculum. Evaluation will be a continuous process instead of a one-time, end of the academic year, testing system. This will lessen pressure on the child and allow for the child’s learning experiences to be joyous and stress-free.
