Teaching & Learning:

Nightingale School follows a pedagogical system that is based on the principles of holistic development of every child who enters our portals. Samacheer Curriculum complies with Teaching and learning strategies revolve around Cognitive, Psychomotor and affective domains of learning.

Strategies involved are objective based learning activities that make students ‘do’ in the process of learning. Learning objectives guide the learner to know what he/she intends to do with what has been learnt and focus on setting individual learner pathways and priorities.
