English is taught as a foreign language, with emphasis on spoken skills and maximum use of audio-visual aids and a high-tech language lab set up for the purpose.

The need of the hour is to strike a balance between preparing students for taking examinations and removing the stress that students are so prone to, under the present system of examination-based evaluation.
Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) is considered to be the most appropriate method of evaluating the progress and achievement level of a student.
To this end, we have a detailed and comprehensive method of evaluation that takes into consideration all aspects of learning. Spoken and written skills, home and class assignments, class participation and response, Class Tests and Unit Tests and two Examinations during the year are all given due weightage in the final evaluation of each student.
