“The best contribution anyone can make in a child’s learning process is creating strong foundations during their pre-school and elementary school years. Development in this age can make a powerful impact in empowering children and building their self-confidence so that they can achieve any success! The Madame Curie School of Science and Technology is committed to educate and guide children towards becoming active leaders of our community.” – Dr. Rao Mulpuri, Founder

Philosophy of Learning

The Madame Curie School philosophy is to provide a challenging academic environment where ideas abound and imaginations flourish. Our goal is to nurture children to be problem-solvers early in life so that they may deliberate, look for, and discover solutions in both academic and everyday situations. At MCS we want to instill a sense of wonder and enjoyment in the mystery of Science, build confidence in Math skills, discover the beauty of Language, and inspire a joy for learning.

MCS Difference

The Madame Curie School of Science & Technology’s innovative STEAM++ curriculum is designed to promote and enhance learning for the preschool and elementary age student. Hands-on lessons and activities coupled with traditional methods of repetition and recitation assist in the academic and social development of the well-rounded student at MCS.


The first five years of a child’s brain development are crucial. Research shows that this is the time when the brain is creating new connections and developing at the most rapid pace it ever will.

With each passing second during these five years, young brains develop 700 synapses, the neural connections that support learning and the development of skill sets. Accordingly it is essential to take advantage of this incredible time – the brain absorbs information like a sponge.

Additional we want to import students with the wisdom we would like them to bring into adulthood – kindness, compassion, self-esteem, and respect – to become productive citizens of their community.
