Middle school further develops the life and learning skills in students through a challenging program. Students move to a more traditional classroom, lecture based, model fully by Grade 8.
While the no homework, schoolbags, exam rule continues, children are expected to do the following daily at home:
- Book reading
- Newspaper reading
- Review of schoolwork
Additionally all research reading is to be done at home.
Students in middle school are given interdisciplinary research projects which inculcate original thinking, creativity and logical skills.
- The Spark Science Club sessions introduce children to inquiry based science where students conduct experiments and projects using the scientific method. The sessions are led by IITian Hauroon Jamal.
- Potpourri English Club hones children's verbal and written skills through a plethora of fun activities. The sessions are led by Smart English Academy's Nazreen Sheriff, a CELTA qualified educator.
- Challenger Math Club sessions are led by IITian Hauroon Jamal for children who have demonstrated high order mathematical thinking. The sessions lay the foundation for the integrated IIT JEE preparation course in later years.
