At the onset we, the parents, thank the school for giving us an opportunity to share our experience with you all. Our daughters attend their virtual classes in ‘THE MANDIR’… that’s how the school has maintained a sanctity and named it as Chettinad Vidya Mandir, which is truly a holy place for Vidya.
We parents wanted our daughters to grow up in a school with exposure to Indian heritage and culture. Apart from the routine education which is offered in most of the schools, Chettinad Vidya Mandir stands apart in fulfilling our requirements and bringing out the student in the child, who is craving for knowledge by enhancing their skills in all domains and a never ending desire for learning.
My daughters learn slokas, yoga, dance, music, art, theater performance coupled with a strong academic curriculum. Even in this pandemic teachers have done their best through virtual class in a delightful and joyful way, which helps the kids to grow up in a holistic approach.
My daughter’s classroom has two teachers to guide the students effectively in a virtual room and they also help the kids to bring out ‘The leader in them!’
Thanks to the school and management to come out with such a holistic curriculum which we always wanted, because it engages the cognitive learning, skills enhancement and complete involvement of the child with a strive for success. It is the curriculum that makes connections between the individuals and their surrounding environment, giving them a sense of social and civic responsibilities which should be installed in an individual when they are still a child. My best wishes to the school, management and dedicated teachers who have put in their relentless efforts and dedication in shaping the future of our kids. Nevertheless there is always scope for improvement as a teacher and as a student as well!
We wish good luck to the management and teachers who are part of such a wonderful family. God bless everyone.

I, Ms. Vinotha is greatly privileged to be one among the foundation team of teachers of Chettinad Vidya Mandir, Coimbatore in the year 2019- 2020. I stepped in as a SKG homeroom teacher and currently working as the homeroom teacher of Grade 1 Yamuna.
At Chettinad, I feel happy to teach and have never felt so motivated and empowered as a teacher in my career. The various trainings that are offered to us like wellness, Growth Mindset, Goal setting, Value & culture based training and many other opportunities to participate in webinars and conferences, has significantly enriched my physical and emotional wellbeing as a teacher and has greatly helped me to distribute and balance my personal and professional areas. I am truly grateful to the Management of CVM, CBE, for this is an organization that makes sure children are getting the best quality of education and are developed as individuals with greater social responsibility.
In terms of being a teacher and as a parent, I feel honored and it is so refreshing to work with professional and positive people. The level of care, trust and respect that the organization demonstrates towards all its stakeholders is unique in its own way.

“When we came to know about the Chettinad Vidya Mandir from a friend, we visited the school to get a better understanding. We were thoroughly impressed with the philosophy and principles of the school and sought admission for our son. Then the pandemic situation struck. Initially, we wondered how the school administration would handle the situation. But once the online classes started and we saw the way the teachers were conducting the virtual sessions, we were assured that we had made the right choice.”
“My journey at CVM started during the lock down. The online platform helped all of us to get an overview of the institution. The team beautifully shared details of the events organized during the previous year and updated us on the policies of the institution. The school’s positive vibes has been a motivation for me to come to school every day. It is the driving force that keeps me excited about the thought of nurturing young minds in the best possible way. The best thing about the school is every member is treated respectfully and feels welcomed at all times. Chettinad Vidya Mandir, Coimbatore, is a unique institution in the city with the right integration of academics and co-curricular activities. ”
Parent of S. Sai Lakshmi – LKG
“We are very happy to have taken admission for our daughter S. Sai Lakshmi in Junior KG (LKG) at Chettinad Vidya Mandir, Coimbatore. We came to know about this school through our family friends from Chennai. They have certified this Chettinad schools group as one among top 10 schools in Chennai. Its renowned for its varied curricular activities along with academics. Knowledge through cultural & traditional way of teaching is their USP. Giving importance to each individual student irrespective of their academic results, limited students per section of class, well educated and trained teaching staff are also aspects that we are impressed with. After having gathered all the above information, when we have visited the school premises in Cheran Nagar, Coimbatore, we are awe-struck & thoroughly convinced by the infrastructure of the school.”

“Very happy and proud to be part of Chettinad group of Education system. We were searching for a school with right integration of academics and extracurricular activities for our son and Chettinad Vidya Mandir did make its debut at the right time in our city. CVM (Chettinad Vidya Mandir) has checked all the right boxes that we looked out for in the dream school for our son. I have heard attractive and admirable views about the institution which brings in many innovations to their curriculum. The selection process in the school made us understand how a child should be evaluated, which made us happy that our decision to opt for this prestigious school was indeed right. The infrastructure and the importance they give to sports and recreational activities even before the start of their educational adventure in the city deserve a special mention. To conclude, I would happily recommend this wonderful institution to all my colleagues and family members in the future.”

“We chose CVM because we were made to feel welcome and the school handled all our questions with respect and understanding. We expect our child to be grounded and take interest in the environment we live in and have a balanced approach to academics and co-curricular activities. I think CVM’s USP is that each child is made to feel special and has the love and support from the school to be the best he or she can be.
It was very important for us to choose a school that could provide the right balance of academics, sports and extra-curricular activities. We were looking out for an ecosystem where our son’s mind could develop without fear, a school that nurtures individuality. After studying and understanding the methodologies of over a dozen schools in Coimbatore, we understood and believe that CVM not only believes in their philosophy of education, but also practices it at every step. We are so glad that we took this decision as we expect our son grow as a person and find his own space in life with confidence.
The infrastructure and facilities are great. The community is more like a friend that cares rather than a straight-jacketed one. I hope CVM makes our child feel like going back to school everyday!”

“Chettinad Vidya Mandir believes in making learning more real-life and joyful yet keeping learners rooted to India’s rich culture. The school focuses on building a community of learners who are compassionate, resilient and purposeful members of the society to make meaningful contributions towards the development of the society with local and global perspectives. I feel privileged to be a part of this prestigious institution which strongly believes that the education system needs to be revamped and should prepare the learners to face the challenges of the 21st century. I believe every day is a new opportunity to learn, unlearn and relearn. It is an honour to be a part of the founding team with inspiring teachers who want to make a difference in teaching.
Looking forward to a wonderful journey with CVM!
