About Us

Senior School is a journey during which children undergo metamorphosis to become young adults.  The process involves developing the spiritual, emotional and mental skills required to excel in both higher education and the commercial world. This is accomplished by exposing the learners to excellent role models, teaching them to interpret and analyze information, think independently, and apply their knowledge to new situations.
