School Picture

The school, established in Chengalpattu, a satellite town of Chennai, offers high quality education to children from diverse communities- a good majority from the underprivileged.and marginalised communities.

We offer the National Curriculum, CBSE, adapted to an international context. With students from different parts of the country and varied socio-economic conditions, the school provides student-centred education in a safe, stimulating environment rooted in tradition.

Guardian School firmly believes that every child is a potential and a powerful human being. The School shall play a vital role in shaping the destiny of every student and help prepare them to meet the challenges of future by imparting holistic learning rich in social, cultural, theoretical and practical knowledge.

We also believe that every child studying here will remember these days as their finest and most memorable time in their lifetime, marked by creative, social, and emotional development, and characterized by a lifelong learning and the joys of new, diverse friendships.

Our Objective

Our focus is on investing in children from the under privileged and socially challenged backgrounds. Our commitment is that at least 50% of the students will be granted partial or full scholarships. We believe that in investing in these students will benefit not only their families but generations to come.

Most private schools in India cater to middle and high-income families. These schools charge exorbitant fees well above the affordable levels for an average Indian family. Children from underprivileged communities are usually left with no choice but to study in under equipped schools or even drop out of school during the most formative years of their early childhood education. The result is a huge percentage of the children from the lower economic strata of society do not get a strong foundation in early academics which results in unemployment and underemployment in later years.
