Online Learning

The sheer diversity of nationalities in Cupid schools provides with a unique opportunity to interact with everyone from around the world.

Multimedia Learning

Children are exposed to Information and Communication Technology from an early age. These ICT facilities enable to create a sense of interest in students as they see and learn.

Activity Rooms

The concept of the activity room is about 'Learning', through play, in a totally different environment. All games are conducted as a part of the planned educational programme.

Music And Art Room

Music and Art is an integral part of the curriculum. We have well-equipped music and art rooms where students are encouraged to discover and develop their talents.
