Everything in and around a classroom has a specific use or purpose for the constructive expansion of the thinking horizon of each and every student.

There is nothing in the assigned environment that a child can’t see or touch. The furniture and equipment are scaled down to the child’s size and are positioned within easy reach. Safety and security of the child is given prime importance. The Centenary Block and Thevenet Block of CJM, Ambala have a busy, productive atmosphere where joy and respect abound. Given such an enriched environment of freedom and responsibility, intellectual development spontaneously flourish. All class-rooms meet with the highest level of hygiene. In these classrooms, every method practiced and every piece of equipment employed is meant to optimize a child’s inherent desire to learn. Children are free to work in groups or on their own when they are assigned a task. Equal importance is given to outdoor and physical activities.

Here, the curriculum and the teacher’s role are carefully crafted to enthuse self-paced growth while encouraging social co-operation.
