Self-discipline is inculcated by embedding sound traditional and ethical values and social sense. Small sized classes, with a teacher-taught ratio as low as 1:15, ensure individual attention and personal care of all pupils. Moreover, the Principal, the Vice Chairman ensures that the code of ethics is followed by all faculty members and the students.
