The true spirit of this school gets reflected in every sphere of school life .It may be Special Assemblies,Band competitions ,Bal Sabha,sports meets,NCC,NSS and other fields of activities nurturing students and preparing them for life .The school site is very close to nature, surrounded on one side by tall pine trees and a playfield on the other where students play different games. The sprawling complex with ultra modern infrastructure and top-notch facilities provides intellectual, emotional and spiritual enrichment to the learning community of the school .The corridor and the classrooms have colourful walls with wonderful paintings and thought provoking pictures hanging on them . The management along with band of devoted teachers are inspired with a holy zeal that gets revealed in their achievements in academic and other curricular and co curricular fields/activities.

It has proved to be a living organism with distinct personality of its own .It has been radiating life and energy all around. It rests on the foundation of goodwill of all the stakeholders __parents, pupils and public. The school is very much connected to the digital world.
