List of schools in Chennai

The school system in Chennai consists of an array of structured systems. Children typically start school (junior or lower kindergarten) at the age of three, progressing to senior or upper kindergarten followed by twelve years of study. Class 10 and class 12 involve taking public examinations conducted by various accreditation boards.

Administrative categories

Chennai schools fall into two administrative categories - government schools called as corporation schools (people chose government schools as they are more affordable to them) and privately (which are more expensive) run schools. Private schools fall under the following categories schools with central board syllabus, schools with State Board syllabus, schools with matric syllabus, schools with Anglos Indian Syllabus and schools with oriental syllabus. In Private Managed State Board Syllabus schools there are two categories one Self-financing and the other is Government Aided Schools. In few Government Aided Schools few section may also be of Self Financing nature.

Medium of instruction

Most private schools are English medium (medium of instruction is English) while the government run schools are primarily Tamil medium (medium of instruction is Tamil). The dhls run by the central government have a dual medium of instruction - English and Hindi.

Accreditation

All recognized schools belong to one of the following accreditation systems:

  1. Central Board of Secondary Education - for all years of study
  2. Tamil Nadu State Board - for all years of study
  3. Indian Certificate of Secondary Education - for all years of study
  4. Matriculation System for classes K - 10 and automatically rolled over to Tamil Nadu State Board for classes 11 and 12.
  5. Tamil Nadu Anglo-Indian System for classes K - 10 and automatically rolled over to Tamil Nadu State Board for classes 11 and 12.

Exceptions to the above rule include a few schools that follow the Montessori method, International Baccalaureate or the American system.[1]
