Good things are born out of perseverance, hard work, and commitment. They are nurtured through passion and effort interspersed with each other. St. Michael’s School is an example of such enthusiasm and diligence.
The school was established by two enterprising ladies, late Ms. Patricia Franklin and Ms. Patricia Mathew, in 1996. It started with just 40 children but today it has bloomed into a leading CBSE school with 1600+ students. In fact, the management claims that it is the only recognized CBSE school in Alwal that provides quality education along with modern facilities.

The presence of dedicated art and music rooms are proof that St. Michael’s wants its students to explore all dimensions of learning. Regular events and competitions also provide children a platform to showcase their talents in different creative fields.
Sometimes, children feel emotionally overwhelmed and need a trustworthy, comforting outlet. The school counselor is highly experienced and helps children overcome their roadblocks in a positive, stress-free environment.
25 buses ply across the city, picking and dropping children at/from set points every day. All buses are operated and maintained by certified professionals.
The teaching approach and curriculum change with the class but overall, the school maintains a healthy learning atmosphere that fosters all-round development. Focus is on quality education at all times but teachers do their best to ensure that children are not stressed.
Pre-primary children start their learning journey in a fun and interactive manner. Their curriculum blends kindergarten and Montessori learning. Rigorous learning begins from class I as the subjects and syllabi increase.
