Middle and Senior School Curriculum

Middle and Senior School Curriculum

The curriculum is designed and packaged in a manner that challenges students to ask questions, enhance skills, conduct in-depth research, analyse findings, build conceptual understanding, share their learning in a variety of ways that reflect on their responsibility as a part of global community. Each child is supported to discover and fulfil his/her unique potential with a balanced, student friendly programme that nurtures the whole individual – mind, body and soul.

We design the curriculum broadly on the guidelines issued by C.B.S.E from time to time. Importance is given to Scholastic as well as Co-Scholastic domains with plans including mapping units with pedagogical objectives, assessment directives and feedback rubrics.
