What the school offers is analogous to a bridge. A bridge provides passage for development. It offers hope for a progressive future. It links and unites lands and people. It provides access towards new knowledge and wisdom. A bridge has its different forms but its purpose is essential. Our programs, the curriculum, are strong like the foundations of a bridge. The bridge deck, the battle field, are the school grounds, laboratories and other educational facilities.
