Primary School (1-5)
The National Curriculum of the Primary School is developed by the Curriculum Development Centre (CDC) working under the Ministry of Education and Sports (MOES). The primary curriculum includes Science, Maths, Social Studies (History and Geography), Health and Physical Education, language and Art. However Tops reserves the rights to have its own curriculum on moral education, literature, computer, grammar, painting, music and sports. We emphasize good behavior and interpersonal relationships and most importantly learning self-improvement. We focus on equipping students with skills needed to become respectful, contributing members of society. Our teachers are dedicated to the academic and moral development of all students encouraging each child to reach their full potential.
Lower Secondary and Secondary Schools (6-10)
Unlike the primary curriculum, the national curriculum relating to lower secondary and secondary schools seems quite overwhelming because students have to study more subjects by heart and more often than not beyond their capacity and interests. It is therefore necessary for us to guide them through the tender age of puberty and adolescence.
Higher Secondary School (11 and 12)
The curriculum of Higher Secondary Level is designed by the Higher Secondary Board of Education. Tops offers science and management courses and it is striving for achieving the best results. In addition to subjects prescribed by the HSEB the Tops Higher Secondary School conducts short courses on career guidance, effective study skills, living harmoniously, developing interpersonal relationships, personality development, health and hygiene etc.
