St.John’s Matriculation Hr. Sec. School was opened in June 1993 as an experimental school for the children living at the Shishu Home. A year later, as the experiment was found successful, it was extended to poor children in the nearby areas. The school has since expanded with two buildings that presently accommodate 175 children, but will ultimately cater to 240 children from Pre-Primary to Class 10.
The school located at KR Puram offers free English medium education to children from the surrounding villages. Children who experience aggression, refusal and neglect because of extreme poverty of their families are the beneficiaries of our school, where they receive an all-round promotion. We give special weightage to girls. As the children are traumatised and highly unsecured due to the daily conflicts and assaults, their concentration power is reduced.
