At Velammal Vidyalaya, we give paramount importance to academic excellence for all our children. We truly have firm conviction that our students can achieve a lot academically if they are guided on their learning path with progressive learning methodologies. We also believe that the teaching-learning process will be meaningful when our children become truly independent learners: they have to be prepared to explore new horizons in their life. They should walk on the secret roads of self-discovery to understand themselves and the society at large.Velammal Vidyalaya encourages its children to develop their capabilities in physical, psychological, intellectual and spiritual dimensions to achieve a balanced and wholesome lifestyle.
