A good infrastructure with adequate space makes it a desirable place for students to study and creates a conducive environment for the holistic development of a child.

Every good school that is tasked with preparing children for their future needs to also teach essential life skills, habits and attitudes that will help them successfully navigate through their life. To do this and provide the best learning experience for students, requires both indoor instructions and outdoor physical activities. In the city of Bengaluru where space is at a premium, the school has a large playground and facility for playing all kinds of outdoor games like football, volleyball, throwball, hockey, basketball etc. An additional massive ground where the school conducts all its events is also available at the disposal of the students.
