PUSHPALATA VIDYA MANDIR (PVM)
Pushpalata Vidya Mandir is a proud member of Pushpalata Institutions, founded by the eminent lawyer, Mr. Palai Shanmugam and his better-half, Dr. Mrs. Maragathavalli, in the year 1986.
Pushpalata Vidya Mandir came into existence in the year 2008 with a meagre strength of 240 children. It has made great strides in the past 8 years since its inception. Mrs. Pushpalata Pooranan, the correspondent and founder, has led the institution to march forth with a strength of 2124 at present, with the motto WE CARE. In such a short span of time, the school has developed into a Senior Secondary School, having sent out 2 successful batches of senior secondary students.
Pushpalata Vidya Mandir follows the CBSE curriculum from classes I to XII. Kids at kindergarten and primary classes enjoy Montessori and play way methods that enhance the sensory learning and learning by doing. The school caters to every category of students and encompasses a curriculum that is driven and differentiated to meet the diverse and varied needs and learning styles of our students. It offers varied opportunities for students to be challenged and developed personally and academically as they actively participate and contribute to the life of the school. Students learn to set goals.

The school has an excellent infrastructure – well-equipped classrooms with the latest technical study supports, well-designed science and computer laboratories, an auditorium, a library where children can find books of their choice, a Montessori lab that caters to the sensory learning of the kids, kindergarten that helps buds to bloom into confident individuals, a toddlers play space, a sprawling play ground where the children can play foot-ball, volley-ball, throw-ball and cricket, a basket-ball court, a tennis court and a swimming pool.

The school also provides foundation courses for classes IX and X and intense coaching for IIT competitive examinations with the help of expertise. Through the robotics techno-lab, children also get hands-on experience on mechanism and technology.
The all-round development of the students, as stipulated by the CBSE, is strictly looked into, by providing the children the opportunity to be exposed to a variety of co-curricular activities such as karate, taekwando, miruthangam, key-board, western dance, folk dance, bharathanatyam, carnatic music, school band, chess, painting, skating and photography. Such activities cater to the child’s intellectual, sensory, aesthetic and physical needs.
