There are eight villages located around the company’s factory at Krishnapuram. Education, here was never considered necessary, because children had to help their parents in the fields or assist them in odd jobs to make ends meet. However, the Chairman envisioned the need for quality education. And hence the Sundram Matriculation Higher Secondary School was started on September 1, 1993. The mission of the school is to provide a conducive environment that helps an individual become intelligent, independent, sensitive, reflective and responsible with a desire to excel in whatever he/she does. A sprawling campus, a stimulating environment to learn, efficient and well qualified faculty are some of the unique features of the school. Special emphasis is laid on educating the girl child. 50% of seats in each class is earmarked for girls.
