Panel discussions, interviews, Skype calls with faculty and group discussions are part of the regular transactions that a student faces as part of his day to day life at school.
Extended Classes upto 8 p.m
After the completion of syllabus in November for class 12 students, stay back classes are held upto 8:00 pm to help them prepare better for board exams under the guidance of experienced teachers.
