Secondary Education

Secondary Education serves as a link between the elementary and higher education, and plays a very important role in this respect. A child's future can depend a lot on the type of education she/he receives at the secondary level. Apart from grounding the roots of education of a child, Secondary Education can be instrumental in shaping and directing a child to a bright future. The Secondary level of education includes children between the age group of 14-18 years, studying in classes 9-10 leading to higher secondary classes of 11 and 12.
