The Cambridge primary and secondary programme forms a part of The Cambridge International Curriculum which takes students from the Kindergarten stage to university entrance. The curriculum provides a natural progression from primary education and builds on and develops their knowledge and skills in Mathematics, English and Science. The lower secondary also offers schools, a means of tracking students' progress from 11-14 with an integrated package of teaching, learning and assessment materials.
The Cambridge Checkpoint tests provide detailed feedback on students' strengths and weaknesses before they progress to post-14 qualifications such as Cambridge IGCSE and further move on to AS and A level. Cambridge Checkpoint tests are standardized, set and marked by CIE. They enable schools to give detailed, structured reports to parents on their child's progress, and advise students and parents of the suitability of different progression routes after age 14.
• Develops successful students – it is a framework for education success for students aged between 5-14 years.

• Schools use this feedback to improve teaching, support learning and report student progress to parents
Yagappa offers child-centered approach in providing a strong learning experience to the children. The information is imparted while keeping the innocence intact. Here the teachers are facilitators who guides the children in their learning process. The classroom transaction takes place only through group activities and individual expressions by the children who explore, investigate and infer the solution thereby gain experiential knowledge. The learners are expected to be self learners rather than spoon fed. The activity based learning is always application oriented and practical. The academic activites are well planned throughout the year with this aspect being taken care.
Extra curricular activities
Yagappa school is known for its holistic approach to education which includes developing an appreciation for nature, art and music among more traditional subjects. The school gives to students the scope and the spirit of healthy competition — to excel at all levels. Art competitions of different level of students are arranged and the excellence in that are rewarded and encouraged. There are boys and girls who have a knack of oration. They have in them an amount of self-confidence that they can face spectators and audience. Elocution contests and debates offer them the chance to exhibit this latent talent of theirs. Such inter-class or inter-school competitions are regularly held which would further them to become good debaters. Cultural shows; dramatics performances, mono- acting's are events which the school generally holds. Students also get to learn through Pot Painting, glass painting, sculpturing, and cookery classes. That is also at of total education.
Taking part in such events gives children a sense of self-confidence and embellishes their accomplishments which they possess or can even develop. Anything, any activity which helps in the development of the total personality of young boy or girl is a part of education and competitions, the effort to excel from others, is an incentive which must be provided to a young mind.
Such an opportunity is offered to them only through such cultural and extra-curricular activities Opening up of personality; developing the latent talents- promotion of the intellectual effort and an opportunity of healthy competition — all these are factors which we always encourage — thus fulfilling the role in the total education of the young minds.
