To run a good school, good educational management is also important. To push the school into the proper path, we ask for quality and efficiency from the management, to create a good system of rules and regulations, to encourage the “School’s rules and regulations” and “Teachers duties handbook” that the school has worked out. The principal, disciplinary master, master of the classes, teachers of different subjects are also to carry out their responsibilities.
