Assessing the Progress
The Preschoolers are assessed round the clock on their age appropriate skills. The yard sticks of assessment go to the deepest level of analyzing a child’s overall personality development, emphasizing on intellectual, emotional and social growth

Primary & Middle School
The teaching methodology considers a student's academic, social, physical, emotional and cultural needs while delivering an integrated curriculum. The integration of the curriculum encourages learners to make connections not only between the subjects and topics but also among knowledge, skills, feelings, values and attitudes. The students will become 'multi-skilled' and be able to transfer their skills and understand across various contexts.

The curriculum is designed in a way that promotes activity-based learning with sufficient opportunities for exploration, understanding the concepts of hypothesis, experimental procedures, observations and interfaces and activities that students can relate to real life scenarios.
