Chettinad Hari Shree Vidyalayam is managed by the Chettinad Group under the auspices of Gandhinagar Education Society. The Gandhinagar Education Society was founded in 1954. Responding to request by the members of the society to help educate the children of Gandhinagar and Raja Annamalaipuram, Padmabhooshan Dr. Rajah Sir M.A. Muthiah Chettiar, renowned for his philanthropic service to society, initiated the establishment of schools that have contributed to the betterment of a large number of less privileged families. From 1956 to the present time, several schools have been built and are functioning as charitable institutions supported by the Chettinad family.
At Chettinad Hari Shree Vidyalayam, we follow the ICSE board (affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination, CISCE). The curriculum trains the students to excel in practical applications. As the board is recognized by most of the schools and colleges around the world, it is highly recommended for students who have to move to different countries. The ICSE syllabus focuses on in-depth study of each subject with an edge over English.
The school believes that teaching learning is a continuous process of stimulating and unleashing the potential of each student to create new pathways and opportunities.
Harishree is designed to provide the best opportunities to our students. The school being the second home, the infrastructure is meticulously planned keeping in mind, ventilated classrooms, playgrounds, libraries, separate floors for the primary, middle and secondary sections, well-equipped laboratories that enable students to perform lab activities effectively.
We inculcate in our students the importance of working hard, of being consistent and perseverant, of being punctual and of making an effort to better oneself at the next available opportunity. We acknowledge their effort not only in academics but in all fields.
Our pursuit of bringing a paradigm shift from teaching to learning continues to set the school as future focused. Professional development programs help the teachers of our school to implement the latest trends in education. Our staff displays a constant desire for overall improvement and excellence in teaching-learning practices and classroom delivery. While we celebrate the success of our students, we also support students with special educational needs and help them achieve as per their abilities.
