In this School, students imbibe not only the knowledge reflected in their studies, but also self confidence that stands them in good stead in the outside world.
At our school, academics is an on-going process of innovation and improvement. Teaching strategies are periodically reviewed to ensure that they fulfill the needs of each & every student. Special coaching is provided to children after analyzing their strengths and weaknesses.
The school follows contemporary teaching blended with technology. The students are trained and encouraged to seminars, workshops through audio-visual equipments and also to present technical papers on topics of paramount importance.
The school started the first year public exam appearance in style in 1999 and achieved a straight 100% pass rate which has motivated to continue to perform on those lines and standards. Since then the school has always achieved results very close to 100% which is a very difficult task, especially considering the fact that the school has limited access to the socio-economic facilities and know-how of some of the city schools.
It is not only the results which are near to 100% pass, but the school also has produced state rankers in various subjects thru the years, the list of which keeps growing.
