Our hallmark is the quality of our staff. They come from all over India but have the common qualities of excellence, dedication and team spirit. The school has excellent infrastructure to cater to the educational, creative and physical needs of all children.

The highlights of our educational philosophy are: we insist on individual attention, whether this is small class size, individual counselling or cosy cottages in the hostel. Instead of emphasising rote learning, we provide real education and we emphasise thinking.

The socialization of the child is very important to us, achieved with individual counselling, exposure to real world conditions through charity work, and healthy competition.

We believe in fostering excellence. Thus continuous improvement is a standard practice followed here. We strive to nurture each child's unique talent - be it in academics, co-curricular activities or sports by constant monitoring and encouragement.

The school prepares children to appear for the ICSE and ISC Board examinations.
