The Curriculum of the School has been developed keeping in mind the highest international standards to open minds and break the barriers and boundaries that confine learning. Our curriculum approach focuses on imparting skill based knowledge using sequential learning techniques. It follows an educational system based on 10+2 pattern of instruction of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).
We provide an optimal teacher to student ratio of not more than 1:16, thereby enabling the teachers to give individual and personalised attention to the students.
