The Pre- primary program is a combination of learning and Montessori methodology. The program includes visual & performing arts, rhymes, sand play and storytelling through puppet shows. The Primary level program is an activity-based learning program that focuses on a multiple intelligent approach. In Middle school, students are initiated into formal instructions through interactive techniques. Lessons and activities go hand-in-hand, and the activities conducted help students to gain confidence and realize their potential in various fields.
We encourage students from an early age to take responsibility for their community. Students contribute to decision-making in the school through student councils. Activities involving the wider community generally focus on developing a sense of responsibility for the common good.
The school runs a house system. Every student belongs to one of four houses. Within their houses, students take positions of responsibility, compete against other houses in sport and music and work towards common goals in a range of areas.
Thoughtful and motivated counselors and teachers work with students and their families to ensure that all students have the opportunity to reach their full potential at SKPS and SMPS.
At school, the student became engrossed in learning the basic knowledge about the subjects such as Math, English, Science, Social Science, Computers, Drawing, Moral Science, etc. He also gets an opportunity to take part in extra and co-curricular activities that help in the all-round development of his personality.
