Why Middle School?

The School provides a stepping stone from Primary to Secondary Education; a period of transition from general studies to specialisation. This poses the question of curriculum and type of course to be offered during this period. The design of the course would depend upon a number of factors.

(b) Staff available.

(c) Type of room and equipment.

(d) Degree of choice to be offered.

These are just a few typical considerations about which some sort of compromise must be made.
