Confining the human potential and inquisitiveness in the formative years to a tailor-made course of study, so as to have a well-crafted and precise finish among the young ones, we feel, does create but an illusion of success and achievement. Our system provides the youngsters with a variety of platforms through societies, clubs, cultural fests, gala celebrations, in-house journals and many other creative engagements to explore, communicate and acquaint themselves with the writer, scientist, artist, naturalist, leader or performer inside them. We believe in creating well-groomed individuals and not just the human templates.
