Nature and conservation have been an integral part of our school since its inception. And, that made us a popular CBSE school in Chennai. The building is infused with green lung spaces, and every tree has been saved during its construction. The design enables us to conserve water and power in the most efficient ways. 100% of our water is recycled and reused. We encourage our students to be mindful of their carbon footprint and live a healthy lifestyle by opting to walk or cycle to school while taking advantage of the adequately designated cycle parking facilities provided for our students and staff. Our three-kilometre radius enrolment policy ensures reduced carbon footprint and effective utilisation of students’ time and energy. We have designed and built our school based on innovative and flexible learning spaces that enhance a child’s learning experience. Because teaching is not confined to four walls, we use a wide range of spaces to engage children in their learning. We have included exhibition spaces around the school for children to present their work and a design & technology lab to integrate STEAM into lessons throughout the school.
This school has been designed for learning, by the people that spend their days working in them.
Our whole school has been involved in the designing of the school - teachers have helped to design the innovative learning spaces; our specialist sports partners helped design our amazing sportsfield with a state-of-the-art FIFA specified Astroturf field; three grass wicket pitches help in cricket practice and a medium range archery / multisports court are all designed so they can be split into separate teaching spaces. A state of the art climbing wall at the heart of the school provides a thriving center allowing children to unwind.
Music lessons are enhanced with the two state-of-the-art instrument studios offering a range of instrumental lessons. The school band offers access to various band instruments after school. Our indoor assembly hall is the perfect backdrop for music performances, concerts and school productions.
Our two black box drama studios are truly flexible spaces, allowing for intimate experiential theatre performances, dance practices, guest speakers and exhibitions.
Our department of design thinking allows the fusion of several different academic streams into a creative space for critical thinking, problem solving and ideation. The department has over 4,000 Sq.Ft., of indoor & outdoor space.

A Solution based approach to problem solving is implemented in this space helping students connect their skills to real life problems. The department has a motorized telescope as well as a solar telescope. In addition remote observations are conducted using robotic telescopes located in the Canary Islands & in Chile.
Our libraries help develop a love for language, aid in effective communication, and trigger the urge to learn more. The libraries are constantly updated and have a readily accessible collection of books. The students are provided with a rich and wide range of reading material via the classroom library and the school library. Daily newspapers and magazines that talk about current affairs and skills are at hands reach to motivate children. It prompts students to enquire, explore and wonder at the world around them. Our students and teachers get flexible access to a wide selection of books and resources with the help of digital options.
Technology here is not just taught but actively leveraged upon since inception. Our virtual presence has helped in greatly increasing the efficiency of our teachers and students. All assignments & academic updates are posted online, offering easy access to students & parents. The complete transition to online classes without any compromise in terms of loss of time or transmission was ensured by our digitally secure video sessions from April 2020.
