ISC Programme

The School Management Committee felt the growing need for quality education in classes XI and XII in Manali and decided to start both science and commerce streams from 2014 onwards.

The syllabus followed by the ISC is more comprehensive and complete, encompassing all fields with equal importance.

Students who are interested in careers in the lines of medicine, engineering, management and humanities will find the curriculum followed under ISC to be more interesting and challenging, not to mention fruitful.

Certification under the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education board has recognition around the world, particularly by foreign schools and universities when compared to the central board’s local advantage.

Due to the emphasis laid on English in ISC, students from this board may hold a slight edge over other students in exams like TOEFL.
