“Education is the process of bringing out the best in man, body, mind and spirit.” – Mahatma Gandhi

From Class V to class VIII the curriculum of all the academic subjects as well as a variety of co-curricular activities encourages creativity, aesthetics and adventure. All students study English, Hindi, Mathematics, Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology), Social Studies (History, Civics and Geography) and an optional language (French, Malayalam, Arabic). Co-curricular activities include Socially Useful & Productive Work (Art, Music, Dance, Science Club, Geography Club, Literary Club), Physical and Health Education and Computer Education.

The school has implemented the scheme of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (C.C.E.) in middle Classes from the academic year 2010-2011 The C.C.E. scheme envisages that every learner is to be evaluated over the entire period of learning schedule rather than a one-slot three hour examination at the end of a course of learning.

The Middle School curriculum aims to help every child develop knowledge, skills and attributes for learning, life and work. We understand that learning is lifelong and the curriculum includes the totality of experiences which are planned for children and young people through their education, wherever they are being educated.

Students need opportunities for achievements both in the classroom and beyond, giving them a sense of satisfaction and building motivation, and confidence.

Thus, the middle school curriculum is structured in such a way that the students acquire desired skills in different subject areas, develop individual skills, interests, and attitudes, learn to face different situations and opportunities in and out of the school. They also learn to apply their knowledge assimilated, work independently, collaborately and harmoniously.
The Middle School curriculum will help students to be successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors.
