We strongly believe that to empower an individual, education is the basic necessity. Education liberates mind and creates a process in oneself and make him/her a competitive and confident individual. Our efforts are sincere towards imparting quality education which is the foundation for a bright future.
Admission to this School is open to all, irrespective of Caste and Creed. We are especially concerned that no student of this area should be deprived of good education just because he /she is financially poor. Keeping in mind the aspirations of the parents and students we have come up with the Vimala English Vidyalaya at Kalathara in Thiruvanathapuram District, where the priorities are high moral standard, academic excellence, self-realization, emotional stability and mutual trust.
