The Primary School program bridges the Kindergarten and primary school years for a smooth transition, engaging students in an enriching and age-appropriate academic program that meets their specific developmental and educational needs.
At this stage children gradually come out of their shell and start to socialize and discover their own strengths and identity. Through exploratory and hands-on activities which can develop cognition, language and psychomotor skills, the students are given ample opportunities to manifest their innate potential and make informed choices. This makes them confident observers who can absorb experiences to make relevant associations and draw accurate conclusions.

We nurture the innate curiosity, wonder, and desire to learn in each one. The curriculum in the Primary school is designed keeping in mind the multidimensional child centric approach.

Children in middle school undergo a vital transition to a more structured space. Students begin to spread their wings and discover their interests in an encouraging, cooperative, and caring environment. During these years, they learn to take risks, learn responsibility and learn to love learning.
Learning in middle school is experiential and inter-disciplinary, compelling action, reflection and empathy among children. This is their light bulb moment, when they start to comprehend that school lessons and the outside world are intertwined. The middle school curriculum is such that emphasizes the value of a strong work ethic, critical thinking skills, effective written and oral communication, and lifelong enjoyment of intellectual, artistic, and physical wellness pursuits
