About the School

 St. Mary's Residential Central  School, Trivandrum, a Minority status Institution is a sister concern of the Thiruvalla St. Mary's Residential Public School,  started in the year 1987 and affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi. The School Affiliation No: is 930157.  The school is headed by Dr. Anila Sarosh, since 1988 (Recipient All India Teachers Award 2008).

The aim of the school is not merely the academic education of the student. One of the earliest findings of the UNICEF is that the existing conventional system or education cannot cope with the needs of the nation. The development of the nation ultimately depends upon the system of education adopted. Man and women who possess knowledge, morality, intelligence, work experience and productive capacity are the nation’s best citizens.  Learning for earning is postponed to a later stage. The main characteristic of the new thinking of education is that learning of KNOWLEDGE and learning to BE should go concurrently. "The main purpose of education” says Hubert Spencer “is not knowledge but Action". As a practical approach to this revolutionary theory the St. Marys Educational and Cultural Society, Thiruvalla, has adopted the 10+2 pattern of the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi for the formation of the child to an upright citizen.


Our school strive to provide holistic, student centered, stress free learning environment and make every learner to be creative, innovative, confident to face all the challenges of life.   


Children are our future: St. Mary's Residential Central School is dedicated to the success of all children.

From the Executive Director's Desk

The dynamics and parameters of education has gone through an unimaginable transformation over the years. The advent of technology has created a drastic change in the mindset of students. They are less dependent on their teachers who have now become co-leaners. In the past, the best became teachers. Today the best has gone to pursue other professions and the reasons are debatable.

Unlike in many parts of India, for parents in Kerala, Education is a lifetime investment as far as their families are concerned. I have always strongly believed that the recipe to a healthy society is an educated, employed and financially independant person.

There are vast numbers of service providers or Management who have sacrificed and still do for the sake of quality education.

True, delicate and dedicated all round balancing of all components is of utmost importance for the well being of the educational sector.

From the Principal's Desk

With the view to enable and equip the child to prepare for a worthy life, we are in our own humble way serving the people of Trivandrum particularly Poojappura and surroundings for the last 32 years.

St.Mary's Central School is an institution with a difference poised to take a fresh challenges leading the way to a better future and setting new standards in the field of education. The school always strives for quality and holistic development of a child in true sense. As a result of the ernest efforts of the stake holders - management, parents, teachers and students, the school has proven track record of laurels in both scholastic and coscholastic domains of education in the past and it still continues. Students are given equal opportunity to learn in safe and caring environment that promotes creative and intellectual thinking.

We are proud of our accomplishments of the past years, and committed to continously enhance our standards in academic and social well being.
