The M.CT.M Chidambaram Chettyar International School was founded in the year 2009 with a view to providing a form of education that would prepare students to meet the present day challenges. It was the first Indian School in Chennai to offer the International Baccalaureate programme for grades 11 and 12 (IBDP).
The main feature and the USP of this programme is its global and state-of-the-art approach to education. Apart from preparing the students for seamless entry into streams of higher learning in India and abroad, it is unique in the way it enables and catalyses students to study, learn and pursue the course of their own choice and interest, on their own steam. It sparks off in students, their quest for knowledge and literally delivers the world at the feet of those who enquire. It provides them simple tools on how to gather information and process it on almost any subject they wish to learn more about. It makes the student self sufficient and confident to face the world. We expect students to take advantage of this opportunity in large numbers.
Following the success of the introduction of the IB programme, the School grew and introduced the Cambridge programmes for grades 6-10 from the year 2010 i.e. the Cambridge IGCSE for IX and X and Secondary Programme I for students of Classes VI to VIII. It is now one of the premier institutions located in the heart of the city offering a combination of the international school programmes.
The M.CT.M. Chidambaram Chettyar International School functions under the aegis of the M.CT.M Chidambaram Chettyar Foundation. It is located in a spacious three-acre compound in the heart of Chennai, in Mylapore and has a good ambience and modern buildings. The sports facilities include a 5 side football/ hockey field, an international standard basketball court, volleyball and throw ball courts, two shuttle courts, two cricket nets, a 200-meter running track and an athletic field. It functions as a co-educational day school.
