  • Our History

    Mahatma was founded in the year 1983 by Mrs. Premalatha Panneerselvam and Mr. Panneerselvam. Mrs. Latha, envisioned a unique school a place where teachers, parents and children are truly partners in education.

    The school started functioning in a new building at Gopala Krishnan Grounds, K. K. Nagar, Madurai in a pollution free and peaceful environment from 1989. The demand for a good residential school and the growing demand for quality education led to the birth of Mahatma Residential School in the year 1992. The school, located at the foot hills of Alagarkoil, 20 Kms from Madurai has an ideal and serene environment which is very congenial to learning and the pursuit of knowledge.

    As the multi-storey school building at K.K. Nagar could not accommodate the ever increasing student strength, it was decided to open a new school to meet the growing needs. Mahatma, Baba Building, was started on 2005 June. The mahatma's aim is to give a quality education to more and more children through a series of structured curricular and co-curricular activities.

    This time it aimed at preparing its students to compete at the national level with pride and a stride towards excellence. Mahatma Montessori School - CBSE is the fourth branch of Mahatma Schools and is functioning efficiently from June 2008, in the Silver jubilee building “AKKAMMA” next to Mahatma – Baba Building.

    Mahatma aims to reach higher goals in the future with a strong commitment to quality and innovation.
