Principal Talk "As the principal of the school, my job is to ensure that the products of this school shape up into responsible citizens. While imparting quality education is the main objective of this school, moulding the young minds into men and women of strong character is also priority on the list. The school basically aims to offer affordable education to middle and lower middle class children of nearby areas. And we believe in doing this with utmost sincerity." - Ch Mallesham, Principal Teacher Talk "The management allows the teachers to suggest changes and ideas in the administration of the school. Every decision here is taken keeping the welfare of the students in mind. Coming to teaching methodology, I adopt practical ways. I teach both English and Social Studies. In both the subjects, I explain the concept rather than asking them to mug up content. For instance, in History subject, I narrate the lessons in the form of stories. And in English, I involve students and their everyday activities to teach them different parts of speech." - Archana, teacher for High School "My teachers are friendly to me. Whenever I ask a doubt, they take time to explain to me; They clear the doubts in a way I understand." - Kasthuri, Class X. "The best qualities about my school are that it teaches us to be disciplined, punctual and to keep our surroundings clean. Not just imparting moral education, my teachers also make sure that I excel in academics. Last year's Class X topper had scored 9.8 points. This year, I plan to break the record." - Priya Vadana, Class X.
