We nurture the growth of the whole child academically, socially, physically and emotionally during what is typically the most difficult years (ages 10-16) of one’s school life. During this stage of development, your child will encounter puberty, pre-adolescence, changes in brain chemistry and huge spurts of physical growth and maturation.
The great news is that this phase of tremendous growth affords your child boundless opportunities for self-discovery. We facilitate this growth in assisting them to become stronger self-advocates, doers and thinkers and in the community-at-large.
Long-term projects and research are integral elements of the curriculum. Study skills, information literacy and technology, critical and creative thinking skills are incorporated throughout instruction. Students are exposed not only to the core academic subjects, such as language arts, math, science, social science and foreign languages, but also to music, art, theater, technology and physical education. Our Learning Specialist works closely with the faculty and students to integrate both enrichment and reinforcement activities while providing guidance for addressing various learning styles and monitoring student progress. Teachers guide students, teaching them to set goals and monitoring their progress toward those goals.
Middle School is the time for pushing the boundaries on all fronts and maximizing student potential. Your child will be challenged and struggle every now and then, but like a wise man once said, “Let your children stumble. The next time they will grow wings. Please stand back and watch them learn to fly. Sometimes they will fall, but they can and will try again.”

Welcome to the Pre-Primary and Primary School, where we nurture the development of each child emotionally, academically, physically, socially and artistically every day. During these formative years, it is essential that children build a strong foundation of basic skills, a deep sense of self and an ability to contribute to a group while capitalizing on their innate curiosity about the world around them. Within a challenging curriculum, children are encouraged to take risks and allowed to make mistakes in a supportive environment, under the care of committed teachers. Our ultimate goal is to instill and maintain a sense of wonder, and excitement for learning, in all of our children, so they leave the Pre-Primary and Primary School full of eager anticipation for what’s to come.

Due to the exceeding competition, acquiring knowledge of global languages has clearly become more than important. The concept of learning the foreign languages has always been productive as it not just imparts linguistic skills but enables learners to explore and learn about related cultures and lifestyles. Learning international languages can thus help you with knowledge that can make you globally recognised. Foreign languages also help students make a strong hold on the social front wherein they can effortlessly communicate with people from different origins and hence build a strong connection due to the apt understanding of their language.
Daffodil School provides the following language classes. (Mandarin in Grade VI, French in Grade VII & Spanish in Grade VIII)
For instance, the Forty-hours of Mandarin language classes enhance students’ basic communication skills. Having completed those forty-hour sessions, students are able to introduce themselves, ask for directions, order food at restaurants, negotiate prices and purchase commodities—all in Mandarin.
Similarly, the forty-hour French language classes cover various topics on France— its geography and climates, its cultures and festivals, its history and current socio-political environment, its cuisines and delicacies— all in addition to the language itself. By the end of an academic year, a student is able to count, speak basic phrases and give greetings in French.
Lastly, in this beginner course for Spanish, students will build a foundation for language study centered on speaking, listening, reading and writing through the gradual incorporation of authentic materials. Even as beginners students will use Spanish daily to express ideas, ask questions and build on previous learning. In addition to new vocabulary and grammar concepts, students will also he introduced to relevant cultural and geographical information. Spanish is an engaging and interactive class designed to ignite interest in the Spanish language and Latino culture.
