Montfort Matriculation School, Kolathur
Montfort matriculation Higher Secondary School, Kolathur was started on 3rd June 1997. It is a school providing co-education under the matriculation Board. Working under the banner of Montfort we believe that education of young human beings should involve much more than simply moulding them into future citizens or employees. Education is something which changes everyone and everything you come in contact with, beginning with oneself first. Education is not just learning facts and figures, not just becoming a successful manipulator, but developing into a disciplined humane.
Montfort matriculation Higher Secondary School, Kolathur is a small (1000 students + staff), wonderful family where everyone experiences affection, acceptance, appreciation, agreement, disagreement, mutual challenge and contribution to every ones growth and development into students with difference- boys and girls who care for others to bring about the desirable social transformation.
The school aims to provide facilities that ensure all students have the opportunity to study the range of courses available in a rapidly developing curriculum of today. The school has equipped science laboratories, music and performing arts rooms, auditorium, examination hall and learning centre. The school has a large play space that facilitates basketball, Food ball and volleyball.
The Montfort Learning Centre
A library and resource centre occupies the second floor of the 2nd Block. This area above and below the Montfort Learning Centre provides space for student learning. This houses the library book collection as well as other, visual and learning support resources.
Renovated and Additional Classrooms
New and improved classroom facilities were completed in 2010 as part of the Building Plan. These facilities provide improved teaching and learning resources for the student population, including the provision of multimedia projectors.
A multi-purpose hall stands at the middle school property between the hostel block and the main building running at right angles. Allowing for indoor Physical Education classes and other sports, the auditorium has the capacity to hold full school assemblies, liturgies and presentations.
