Welcome to Geetha Matriculation Higher Secondary School
Progressive Education for Good Quality Life
Geetha Matriculation Higher Secondary School is a modest school catering to the low income community in Saidapet, Chennai on a non-profit basis and run by a charitable Trust registered under Sec 12A and 80G with no aid from the Government or any other agency.
The objective is to provide the best possible quality of education at affordable cost to the community. The endeavour has been to go beyond the conventional rote based learning system and nurturing the students' abilities to think, understand and express themselves.
The school sees education as a means to prepare oneself for long term all-round well-being in life (physical, emotional, financial, etc) and be responsible citizens, and not just get short term good results in exams or even just to get a good job.
The ultimate goal is to create a model school that delivers on meaningful effective education cost-effectively with minimum infrastructure and technology.
The School was started in 1975 as a nursery school. It became a full fledged higher secondary school in 1988.
The school currently has around 600 students from Pre-KG to Std 12, most of them from very low income backgrounds and many of them are first generation into education. The medium of instruction is English.
