Moving into class 9th in the senior school entails a longer working day, and more organized study time for students, who, at this stage, are expected to become more independent in their learning; however, a close and supportive relationship continues to exist between students and teachers. To ensure continuity between teachers and students, teachers take students up from class 8thto class 9th in many subjects.
The academic curriculum is balanced by arts and crafts, dramatics, sports and participation in a variety of clubs ranging from journalism,to chess. Participation in other work of the center such as afforestation, rural health, and rural education is also encouraged and organized. Students are also encouraged to research topics of their interest and present these at morning assemblies. Assemblies, student-council meetings and specially convened staff-student meetings are forums where discussion and debate over issues of concern in the school community or in the world are encouraged. Culture classes – intended to extend intellectual and emotional horizons of the students – remain an integral part of the timetable, right until class 12th.
