EMS History

Emmanuel Methodist Matriculation Higher Secondary School has served as a beacon of hope for nearly four decades.

Our Gracious Roots

Borne out of the innate longing to educate the underprivileged children in our surrounding communities, the Emmanuel Methodist Matriculation Higher Secondary School has served as a beacon of hope for nearly four decades. We have risen above the challenges we’ve faced to establish ourselves as a renowned educational institute – mentoring young men and women to use their talents to make a difference,

7th of July, 1974
Missions

On the 7th of July, 1974, the Missions and Evangelism Committee of Emmanuel Methodist Church, Vepery established the first school in the area of Ambattur. The first class was conducted under a thatched ceiling, comprising of one teacher (Mrs. Daisy) and seven students.

1983 to 1993
World Vision

Under the guidance of Mr. Chakravarty, the director, the school grew exponentially culminating with the establishment of the first phase of our school building which was dedicated on December 17, 1990. At the turn of the ’90s, we found support from a compassionate family from England, Mrs & Mr. Arthur Clamp.

1993 to 2001
Challenges Arise

On the 17th of September, 1993, a great fire broke out at our premises reducing our thatched room to ashes. Having to re-build ourselves, we grew sufficiently to become self-reliant on our resources.

2002 to 2015
Management

The management decided to start with free education through Tamil (vernacular) language as the medium where the students could attend school for free. Emmanuel had the privilege to educate our students both in Tamil& English medium.

2015 – Present Day
Present

Keeping in mind the Genz and the demand to embrace the new technological age, the school has ensured that our children are provided the utmost educational experience through the classroom, outdoors, and through e-learning, having an enriching and exciting experience. Emmanuel has also been providing a safe and healthy environment developing the existing infrastructure into an energy-efficient environment.
