Within the Junior and the Senior Sections, the hierarchy begins with the Head of Section followed by the Academic Coordinator and the Subject Coordinators. The latter two levels coordinate with each other on purely academic issues, while the Head of Section deals with matters concerning both students and parents.
Within the hierarchy, the coordination among the administrators serves as a link between the levels. As such, there is continual follow-up regarding lesson plans, syllabus breakdown and the implementation of the curriculum.
