It all begins with the basics. It all begins at school.
Children bustle with energy and curiosity. Since everything is new to them, the world is truly their oyster. They have a plethora of questions, so many doubts, and such imagination – wow! Their whimsy has absolutely no bounds!
What our children grow up to be and how they perceive life depends on how we help them channel their energy. While parents play a primary role, a lot also depends on the school. Since children do most of their learning in school, it is important we find the right one for them – a school that focuses on emotional development and academic finesse, ensuring that every child gets the basics right.

The school was started with an aim to prepare young minds for the test of life by imbibing values and helping them pursue academic excellence. We explored the school and found out the following:
