Visual Education replaced conventional teaching in this school starting from 2005, when a theater was built and was inaugurated by Dada Saheb Phalke awardee K. Balachander. Space Education is a domain that is not much covered in the academic syllabi and with Mr. Sanath Kumar’s effort, many scientists from ISRO Bangalore including Dr. Mylswamy Annadurai, visited the school to taking classes for the children, which was something schools had never done before.
The schools are in the following location:
1. Cambridge Public e-School, Kaveripattinam
