OUR LESSONS FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL (Grades 1 – 6 are available)
The primary school is the first and crucial environment for our children to have new experience in their life.
Not only that the learners begin with their new life by building friendship with their peers and gain self-confidence but also more importantly do they need to improve their concentration and interest in learning. In order to achieve such an important objective, it is our duty to create such a warm environment where the kids are encouraged and supported, academically as well as emotionally, throughout the school period.

Throughout the elementary grades there are numerous and varied interrelated experiences that encourage each student to develop mathematical habits of mind.

Our students live in a complex, multi-cultural and rapidly ever-changing world.
