The Choice School, Thiruvalla, is a realization of the dream of Mr. Jose Thomas – President, The Choice Foundation, to spread quality education far and wide.

As part of the expansion plans of The Choice School, it was the vision of Mr. Jose Thomas to spread our wings and to take the same vision and philosophy within and outside the state of Kerala. As the first step towards this vision, the Thiruvalla school was envisaged and the first step was taken to enter Thiruvalla town that was predominantly known for having created great leaders in the past The first phase of The Choice School at Thiruvalla, has a Kindergarten school in Kuttapuzha and the Main Campus at Manthanam. The school has started operations and has grades upto grade VIII. The Project Architects are CetraRuddy from New York. The first phase consists of a built up space of 84,032 square feet.

Kerala Chief Minister Mr. Oommen Chandy laid the Choice School Foundation Stone of Thiruvalla in January 2015. This marked the commencement of the Thiruvalla project.

The Thiruvalla and the neighbouring communities have welcomed The Choice School with open arms. The school will have classes from Grade 1 to Grade 12 with all the state of the art facilities that The Choice School, Tripunithura, Kochi enjoys.


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. This block organization intends to foster a sense of security within each school, while also suggesting a conceptual progression of independence as students move from a more dependently organized Primary School to a more independently organized High School.

At the Choice School, the pursuit of excellence is a way of life – a habit. Our school is filled with enthusiastic students willing to learn and a community of dynamic and dedicated staff members who are committed to providing the students with quality education. We are also blessed with motivating and happy parents too.

All this, along with an environment conducive to learning, a goal to empower the children into self-reliant leaders of tomorrow and a social commitment to the less fortunate, is what makes The Choice School, a temple of learning.

Our students have a wealth of programs that we believe will enrich their appreciation of the arts, music, physical well-being, science, and sports.


Our vision is to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment where children will recognize and achieve their fullest potential, so that they make their best contribution to society.  Collectively at The Choice School, we stay committed to executing this vision, keeping the interest of the child as a point of focus.

Ms. Rachel Ignatius, who has been part of The Choice School, Tripunithura for more than 20 years is the Principal of The Choice School, Thiruvalla. She is known for her strong team building skills, attention to detail and efficiency. Her vision, passion, grace, wisdom and unconditional belief in the students, is bound to take The Choice School, Thiruvalla to great heights.

Ms. Anisha Sen, the Vice Principal plays a vital role in the school. She assists Mrs. Rachel Ignatius on all important matters related to the school. With over 16 years of experience as a teacher, she is a great team player and her meticulous ways of planning and work makes her a perfect leader.


The School follows the CBSE curriculum. A comprehensive pattern of formative and summative assessments is followed for evaluation. In addition to academics, life skills and values are also assessed.

Hands on education, student-centric learning methodology and skill-based learning, are some of the concepts that we at Choice School have adopted to enrich academics. It is a proven fact that children born in this digital world are far ahead in their thinking processes and there needs to be a consequent paradigm shift in the trends of education over the past decade.

Keeping in mind these shifting trends of education, The Choice School offers a curriculum, which emphasizes activity oriented teaching and creates opportunities for the children to observe, explore, analyze and conclude, thus making them independent learners.

Every class from grade 1 is equipped with SMART boards incorporating the latest electronic technology. The interactive board turns a typical classroom into a fun learning environment. It enriches classrooms by creating the perfect learning setting.

Co- curricular activities complement and enhance the academic structure of the school. To break the monotony of conventional teaching methods, the school brings in visiting faculty to teach earmarked portions of the curriculum and expat teachers to add the global dimension to the teaching and learning process.

We believe that every child is special and unique. With more than two decades of experience and excellence in the field of education, our simple recipe for the success of Kinderland rests on the promise of safety and happiness of the child. We aim to create a welcoming, safe and caring environment that promotes free expression, appreciation, enjoyment, discovery and development of individual talents.

Housed in a colourful, stimulating and child-friendly building, the Model Early Learning Centre is designed for the development of various Early Learning Skills in an informal setting.

The program is executed in a non-competitive environment through various guided activities such as games, kinesthetic drills, field trips, musical activities, exposure to literary creations, theatre and outdoor activities that encourage keen observation.

As part of a new initiative to reduce the travel time for our tiny tots, we decided to bring the school closer to home. Thus were born Model Early Learning Centres call Kinderland at locations – Kuttapuzha and Kottayam, facilitating the parents to choose the school closest to their homes for their young ones. Both the centres are tandardized in terms of design, themes and colours that enrich the learning experience and create a fun filled and happy ambience for our students.
