The Secondary Section at Anantha lakshmi is student centric and entails to promote academic, social, physical and personal growth. We encourage the learners to be original thinkers, self-disciplined and environment conscious. The secondary section reinforces whatever has been learnt in the middle section and seeks to introduce a degree of complexity in the learning process in a calibrated system where cognitive and reasoning abilities are further enhanced. The flexibility in the curriculum is still maintained while simultaneously training learning to work within time-frames. The process of learning is made active, dynamic and enjoyable keeping in mind that students have different learning styles and academic abilities. At this level, we prepare the learners to explore further and nurture them to be technically proficient problem solvers and career minded.
The Curriculum as prescribed by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is adhered to for all the subjects in the Secondary Section.
Teaching and learning is a multi-dimensional, participatory experience with much emphasis on experiential learning as against traditional pedagogy.
