With a seven acre avant-garde campus and top-notch infrastructure Canary paves a clear path for educational success, leading seamlessly from primary through middle to senior school years. Each stage combines a world-class curriculum, high-quality support for teachers and integrated assessment, including CBSE and IB curriculum which are recognized by universities worldwide. Canary has also been bestowed the prestigious International Dimension in Schools award by the British Council which is a bench-marking scheme that accredits schools as having an outstanding level of support for nurturing global citizenship in young people and enriching teaching and learning.

The school's vision and mission statements speak of the beliefs, values, and aims of the learning community and is regularly revisited and reflected upon to ensure that the school and its members are genuinely living the mission.

The sudden onset of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the closure of the physical school in 2020. However, learning never stopped at Canary as the school transitioned to the virtual mode of learning. G Meet video conferencing and Google Classroom ensured that classes were conducted remotely; teachers interacted with students and got on with the teaching learning process in no time. Online class learning provided huge options to maximize the use of technology with displays of videos, PPTs, Whiteboard, Online Quizzes, virtual field trips, guest lectures from eminent people from across the globe, to name a few.

With the vaccination drive happening, the school geared up to reopen its gates for middle and senior school students, and we wished a joyful return for students in February 2022. Soon, the primary school children and the tiny tots of pre-primary joined back with fervor and excitement writ large on their happy faces.
