THE THIRUVALLA PROJECT
Phase 1 which will be ready in the start of the academic year 2016 – 17, will see children start schooling for Class 1 to 4. Admissions for 2016 -17 will begin in September 2015.
The Project Architects are CetraRuddy from New York. It will consist of a built up space of 23,500 square metres. It will be a 4-storied structure when both Phase 1 and Phase 2 are complete.
The Thiruvalla school will consist of a Primary School Block, Middle School Block and High School Block, each containing their own entry, school administration offices, classrooms, specialty classrooms, library and student commons.
