The overall welfare of the child is neglected in the process. As a local school claiming to be international, they have very few good teachers on board, and also doing the 9th std portions in 8th grade, there by overloading the kids and not teaching them the basic of science, hence their foundation is not strong, there by losing confidence in studies, all of this for what? for the school's 10th grade boards?
