       Education aims at the rearing up of disciplined, efficient and God fearing citizens. All the above qualities are of paramount importance as far as individual as well as national life is concerned. The need of the hour is to bring up good citizens; who would put others interests before their own interests and would willingly contribute their mite for the well being of the fellow citizens. It is with these noble ideals in mind that the school was founded in June 1965 by Chevalier T THOMAS, the Founder. To impart quality education to the children of the lower middle class families in an area like North Madras is another objective of the school.

      The St. Mary's Girls Higher Secondary school branched out as an exclusively Girls school in 1983 when the pattern was changed to Tamilnadu Higher Secondary syllabus from C.B.S.E syllabus. It was functioning in the Main School Campus and was then shifted to Maryland Campus by 1985. The school has reputation of the best girls Higher Secondary school in north Chennai.

      Due to pressure from public we were constrained to open up co-education till std VIII.

The school has twin buildings with very good laboratories and spacious class rooms satisfying all conditions of stability and sanitary needs. We have a well planned pre K.
