International  Secondary School Curriculum

Academics - Multiple choice of curriculum

We cater to the educational needs of students from different diaspora. They have the choice between Indian (CBSE) and International (Cambridge) curricula which cater to the learning styles of different groups of students.

For international students, Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme offers the prestigious Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) to Grades 6,7 and 8. It is designed to provide a strong foundation for students wanting to pursue the IGCSE curriculum.

Both insist on academic excellence through rigour as well as holistic development through introduction of skills-based and personality grooming education weaved into the curricula.

Bridge Programme

Our Bridge Programme is an important feature which allows our students to start at any time during the school term and receive the assistance they need to catch up with their peers. Rest assured that your child will be learning with his/her classmates as quickly as possible.

This specialised programme exists to help students of all grade levels make up for lost time, complete important lessons and classwork, and catch up academically with their regular class.

Add-ons - Value Added Programmes

Our academic add-ons are programmes that give additional boosts to a student's learning curve through targeted studies, helping them focus on additional areas and concepts at no extra cost.

We provide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) related material that helps students understand key concepts in the subject by creating working models of these concepts; use online tools like HeyMath! to hone their mathematical skills and conduct detailed assessments through which the teachers understand every child’s strengths and weakness in particular subjects.

Co - Curricular Activities

For our students, the rigour of academics is well-balanced by proper exposure to sports through extracurricular activities, physical education and a Cricket Academy.

Sport is encouraged through ECA while co-curricular activities (CCAs) include honing inherent skills in students like performing arts, leadership, entrepreneurship and innovation.

These activities balance the learning environment in the school and allow students to be well-rounded individuals who can excel at anything, and be ready to face the world as global citizens.

There are also course enrichment activities conducted in class after each concept (like quizzes, group projects or short tests).
