The Term ‘Middle School’ came into existence with the sincere endeavor of William Alexander and Emmett Williams, in 1965. Middle school marks the transitory phase of the students from the primary school, sustaining them to conquer the lofty boundaries of the junior high and the higher secondary school. This is the intermediate phase and a very important phase of a child’s educational journey.
We, the teaching and learning community have a set rules to follow, ‘the cognitive skills of learning’. The sequence of it being Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis, and Evaluation.The pinnacle being ‘Implementing’ these thereby creating. Here in our school nothing goes without a solid plan and our lesson plans are planned with a clear, lucid, apparent learning objectives and desired learning outcomes for the learner.
There are about 8 different learning skills.

Children who belong to the middle school are entitled to take part in a very interesting event, ‘The Camfester Nite’. Children get to spend a night here in the school campus. Learning outside the classroom activities are often more authentic than the ones that are offered in the space enclosed by four walls. As a part of this event children stay for a night and interact with each other through various activities, it helps them to better acquaint themselves as individuals, not just as regular classmates; the sharing of personal space ensures a better understanding among the kids which helps them in their learning as well, this helps the child to function effectively in group tasks, the group can function as one single unit as they have gained the trust of each other. Camfester nite aims to foster and instill these qualities in children.
