Students in the senior years are at the threshold of adulthood. As such they develop a strong sense of identity and make important choices for their future. Therefore, during these years the school strives to educate children for life and change. The school not only lays a foundation for future study but also prepares them to take responsibility for their own learning and is encouraged to accept leadership roles throughout the school. At this levelthe metamorphosis and the learning philosophy practiced infuse traditional values into a progressive approach, equipping students to become independent, adapt and excel in their chosen fields globally. Since the cynosure of academic studies in grade IX and X is the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) curriculum. Therefore at this levelchildren are motivated to become independent learners,Learning is enriched by going beyond the classroom. The school provides academic support to the children through a variety of teaching methodologies which makes learning a wonderful experience. The tedium of classroom instructions are removed and a greater clarity of learning concepts are enhanced by the use of ‘smart technology’, project method of learning, group discussions, seminars, interdisciplinary co-relations etc. Activities and lessons are designed keeping in mind the multiple intelligence approach. Periodic tests, rigorous practice and remedial classes are held to reinforce learning.
Children subscribe to five subjects-
“A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move toward higher levels.”
In accordance with changing scenario of educational perspectives and in light of the recent restoration of the the compulsory Board Examination by the Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE) , the school has a progressive curriculum that would help each and every child to meet futuristic commitments. Simultaneous development of life skills and academic intricacies is the need of the hour. Hence our curriculum has incorporated many new initiatives to ensure holistic development.

In order to nurture the literary inclination and nourish creativity , “Read Programme” has been initiated every Wednesday from 8:00 am to 8:40 am, where students will read the book allotted to them. On the 4th wednesday of every month, there will be an activity done by the students, based on the book they have read. This would not only help to inculcate a reading habit among students but also develop deeper insight into the book read.
Going further to enhance analytical abilities in day to day life , special care is taken to strengthen mathematical aptitude by making students practice minimum of 15-20 sums per day as an additional effort. Books of higher order in mathematics have been given in this year’s syllabus so that the students practice regularly.
To a very great extent, the theoretical knowledge is enhanced when a co-curricular activity related to the content taught, is organized. To complement the co - curricular activities and groom the students in the “Art of living and working together” , participation in at least one activity , one sport and one club has been made compulsory. Wide variety of choices of activities, sports and clubs has been offered to students of high school. They are the true and practical experiences gained by students by their own learnings. Others generally are voluntary, such as participating in school sports team, MUNs, school debating team or student newsletters.
Intellectual development of the personality is achieved to a great extent, in the classroom itself. But, the aesthetic development like character building, spiritual and moral values, physical growth, creativity are backed up by co-curricular activities only.
Hence, we ensure and assure prime need of striking a balance between syllabus, curriculum, books and also co-curricular activities beyond that. Therefore, “We Aim Excellence.”
