Concept Learning

Children learn math, grammar, science etc by understanding the underlying concept. This helps them learn more with less effort. Rote learning is confined to few areas like multiplication tables, spelling etc

Multi-sensorial E-learning

Children do classwork and homework online from grade 1 to 8. In kindergarten only homework is posted online. The integrated, customized, e-learning program boasts of over 18,000 e-sheets, many embellished with colourful pictures, audio and video. E-learning is an important tool in our quest to be the best CBSE school in Salem.

Intellectual Infrastructure

Though this CBSE school has a verdant 4 acre campus, spacious, ventilated classrooms, two lavish computer labs, a posh science lab and swanky toilets, it does not harp about its physical infrastructure. Because, all the steel and concrete in the world, will not make a kid smart. The school’s pride is in its intellectual infrastructure like Ladder Reading, Mathemagix etc., which kindle children’s intelligence.

Signature Teaching Techniques


Perhaps the easiest spelling program in the world, it helps children from LKG onward spell effortlessly. By the time kids finish kindergarten they can spell 350 words. From grade 2 onward, children spell challenging multi-syllable words using this technique.

Ladder Reading

This 4 year program, comprising of 10 levels, starts in LKG and finishes in grade 2. Each higher level has been calibrated to be more challenging than the previous one. By the time the program culminates, grade 2 children will be adept at reading newspapers and quite often even grade 10 books.

Monster Reader

A challenging reading-cum-comprehension program with a heady concoction of direct and twisted questions, in open test format. This program takes off where Ladder Reading stops and commences from grade 1.

Zinglish is English with a zing. Its components are reading comprehension, jiffy comprehension and multimedia comprehension. It imparts English fluency even to children whose parents don’t speak the language.

Tradition & Technology

Children possess technology prowess (they use computers from when they are 31/2 years old) and are also entrenched in tradition. Even the attire (those expecting ties & belts will be sorely disappointed) and greeting (Namaskaram) are traditional!
