St Joseph’s Marist College believes in educating the whole person and recognises that humans have spiritual physical, intellectual and emotional sides to them – all of which is taken into account in the curriculum followed at the school. The policy of inclusion is clearly visible through the school’s Special Needs Unit available on the campus.
The school is divided into the following units – Playschool, Pre-primary, Foundation Phase, Intermediate Phase, Middle school and High school. In each phase there is a different emphasis and a correlation with developmental stages. Montessori classes run parallel with Mainstream classes from Pre-primary to Grade 6. SJMC is also one of a few schools offering Montessori education within the structure of a conventional school.
