The objective of the Lower Secondary Section of M. D. Gunasena International School is a well-intended, preparatory level to meticulously and methodically get students ready for the Cambridge Ordinary Level Examination syllabus in grades nine and ten of the Senior School. The Lower Secondary Section encompasses classes from grades six to eight.
Students in the Lower Secondary Section are groomed, progressively, to acclimate to benchmarks that are set by the Cambridge Board of Education, in order to cope with the more advanced studies they will confront in the Senior Section of the school, explicitly, grade nine and upwards, when they sit for the Cambridge Board of Examinations.
Staffed by a qualified and experienced crew of teachers, the Lower Secondary continues with the Cambridge Syllabus that carries on, congenially, from the Primary section.
Girls and boys study English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, ICT, Languages: Sinhala or Tamil and Religion.
