Achievements

Senior Secondary
(Std XI – XII)

A student-friendly atmosphere is created in the classrooms and the teacher focuses mainly on the communicative approach. Lecture-cum-demonstrative methods, exploiting the multimedia facilities available, make the classes lively and interesting. Seminars, paper presentations, debates, role-play, public speaking etc are encouraged, bearing in mind at the same time the fact that these students are being prepared for the Board Exams as well as the entrance exams. We thus cater to the all-round development of their personality, thereby moulding a self-reliant, responsible and industrious group of youngsters fully capable of taking on the challenges of the outside world.

The school prepares the students for the AISSCE (All India Senior Secondary Certificate Examination) conducted by the CBSE at the end of Class XII.
