Education

From Nursery to Higher Secondary school:

image Our Nursery school was setup in 1981 It was upgraded to Middle school in 1991 and then elevated to the status of a High school in 2009. In 2015, we have commenced our Higher Secondary school operations. We cater to over 715 students inclusive of children with various physical and mentally challenges. 

12th Standard students in our inclusive Siva Saraswati Vidyalaya Higher Secondary School have successfully passed out in the exams held in March 2019, recording 100 percent success since its up-gradation to 12th Standard. There is a feeling of triumph in the fact that our intellectually challenged student, who joined our Sangamam School for special children ten years ago, has scored 446/600. She was a topper in her 10th Standard exams too. This is a boost to our pursuit of inclusive education.
