The co-educational school follows the Gujarat State Curriculum from Grade 1 to Grade 11. Lessons at all levels are facilitated through an integrated curriculum, which is supplemented by a variety of extra-curricular activities, field trips and class projects.
Our Early Childhood Development Programme (ECD) provides a safe and nurturing learning environment for young learners, while enriching the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of your child.
It comprises of Nursery, Junior K.G and Senior K.G. and is based on the principle that the early years are the most critical for a child’s growth and development. Neuroscientific research suggests that 90% of brain development occurs during the first five years of a child’s life. Additionally, young children learn best in the context of appropriate sensory inputs as well as stable and supportive relationships and interactions. The early years also build the foundations for thinking, language, vision and behavioural attitudes.
Our Learning Environment
A happy, safe and engaging learning space has been designed to provide an enriching environment for young learners:
Our curriculum is based on contemporary research and principles of early childhood development. It is developmentally appropriate, integrated, play-led and ensures stimulating experiences across different domains to address the needs of the child.
Our school offers the Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSC) programme to students from Classes I and X. Lessons at all levels are facilitated through an integrated curriculum and supplemented by a variety of co-curricular activities, field trips and class projects.
Our child-centred, experiential learning approach in the early years continues as a strand through the Primary years. The natural curiosity and creativity of a child is nurtured, allowing children to investigate their environment create meaning for themselves. At the primary level, teachers plan and design Curriculum Webs to ensure that every topic in the curriculum is related to other topics.
At the secondary level, the Gujarat state-prescribed curriculum is taught using innovative methods and activities. Lessons at all levels are facilitated through an integrated curriculum, supplemented by a variety of extra-curricular activities, field trips and class projects.

Children learn most effectively through collective reflections shared with peers and facilitators and through group discussions.
