Pre-school

Pre-school, the word explains itself that is preparation for the school level. So, we have opted pre-school as a preparation phase for the school level. Hence, the children are motivated by providing them play materials and fun as the learning way. We do not compromise on their demands of enjoyment to the optimum way while staying at school and learn by fun. They paint, play in the sand, play with the clay, play with papers and learn. We have three levels in the Pre-school, i.e., Nursery, Lower Kindergarten and Upper Kindergarten.

Basic school

As per the provision of the Education Act of Nepal, basic education spans from grade 1 (One) to 8 (Eight). To ensure that students receive developmentally appropriate instruction, we have bifurcated the basic education into the Lower wing (Grade 1 – 5) and Upper wing (Grade 6 – 8).

We have adopted national curriculum and given our efforts such that units meets the best and enriches our national curriculum goals. The units chosen for study have been linked to the Curriculum Development Centre’s guidelines to ensure that students have access to relevant materials, and attain intended learning outcomes. The curriculum is divided into three Mile Posts (1, 2 and 3) which broadly link to Grade 1 and 2, Grade 3 and 4, and Grade 5 and 6 of the Nepali system. It provides an excellent structure and pedagogical rigor that supports student learning and progress, and connects with real world examples.

Secondary school

Our Plus Two Program comprises grades 9 to 12. Students are required to appear for the Secondary Education Examination (SEE) in grade 10 conducted by the National Examination Board, Nepal. In grade 9 and 10, students will be offered subjects as per the national curriculum along with two optional subjects of their choice.
